Did you miss the Red Line Club membership sale earlier this year? Well, we’ve got good news for you! We’re making more 2019 Red Line Club memberships available. So if you’ve been missing out on HWC and RLC editions, this is a good place to get in; membership includes the RLC Exclusive Custom Camaro®!
The Membership Kit:
For this year’s membership car, we’ve chosen a favorite of many collectors: the classic Custom Camaro® with opening hood and Neo-Classics Redline wheels.
- Features: Opening hood
- Body Color: Spectraflame black
- Deco: Thin red stripe across front
- Body Type: ZAMAC
- Wheels: Neo-Classics Redline wheels
- Base: Full-metal, chrome-plated chassis and engine
- Window Color: Clear
- Interior Color: Red w/ black-painted steering wheel
Also included with your membership kit is a vintage-style 2019 RLC metal button featuring an image of the car. Plus you’ll receive a cool 2019 RLC membership patch, designed by our own Steve “HWC Van” Vandervate.
You can start to enjoy the membership benefits outlined below when you become a member of the 2019 Red Line Club. The membership is a great value at $24.99—the same price as when it began in 2002!
RLC Priority Window: RLC members get an exclusive Priority Window on most of our online sales. Only RLC members can place orders during this Priority Window. The length of the Priority Window will be announced for each sale, but it will not be less than 24 hours. Our cars frequently don’t last past the Priority Window, so don’t miss the best chance you’ll have of getting your favorites.
RLC Exclusive Cars: We’ll continue our innovative and exciting RLC sELECTIONs series this year. It means we’ll add another scorching hot release chosen with direct input from you — our RLC members! It’s your chance to help us with the creation process of an edition you want to see — and you help us choose color and wheels, too. Only club members get to vote for these, and we only offer them to club members when they become available.
You may also notice other RLC Exclusive releases. Whenever this happens, you’ll definitely want to make sure your membership is up to date—if you’re not a member, you won’t be able to get these RLC Exclusive releases.
RLC Rewards Program: As a Red Line Club member, you will earn one Rewards Point per dollar spent on most HWC items in the shop* — not just on HWC Series editions, as in previous years. You’ll also be able to earn Rewards Points on orders you place outside of the Priority Window! Some exceptions may apply, and will be noted on the individual product pages where that’s the case.
Later in the year, you will be given Rewards Codes to redeem for special merchandise and other various items. We’ll have more Rewards details for you in a separate article later, but the thing to remember is that you can’t get any Rewards if you don’t join the club and order merchandise.
Free Shipping: As an RLC member, you will receive free Standard Shipping on any order totaling $49 or more**! The more you purchase, the more you save.
Also, certain HWC site content is only for RLC eyes – you don’t want to miss that kind of information.
So if you missed your first chance at the 2019 RLC Membership and that Custom Camaro®, this is your chance to jump in the Club!
