Wait so just to clarify: Does this mean those of us who have Premium or Premium+ Accounts can get into the Hynes ahead of everyone else, the Dealer's Room or something else entirely?

Also: I'm assuming unlike last year we'll be able to get the Premium Badge at Pre-Reg Thursday?

How do you get crunchyroll premium membership? More accurately, how do you get the badge for it if you have membership?

For AB 2016, the Sheldon had CrunchyRoll keycards for the rooms. I kept mine, they never complained. I wonder if they will do that again?

They had no reason to complain as they were paid for.

We laughed at the lil print-out Sheraton gave us at check-in which detailed all the useful info plus how a "lost" keycard is a $10 charge. All those lil souvenirs cards clearly earned hotel back their money

I think they mean lost as in if, during your stay, you need another key card because you can't get into your room and you lost it. Not that you have to return them during check out :)

Also does being on the free trial premium count for anything??

not necessarily. Some hotels do this and my friends are often surprised when they see my hotel key card collection because they hand them in during check out and I've never done it in my life.... I guess I should look a bit more closely on my charges :?

Crunchyroll staff will know if you're a Premium or Premium+ member--they'll have a terminal set up in the pre-reg room, where you can log into your account, and that will give them the stats they need to give you the badge. That's what I did the last time they had this going on. (It might not work if you're only on a trial membership, though. They may require that you pay for the privileges to get the badge.)

As far as I know they didn't charge me. I was looking for it on the bill they emailed me.

I missed online pre-registration. If I'm a CrunchyRoll Premium member do I get a separate faster queue to register?

nope, this does not cover that. You will get confirmed as a Premium member at the CR area in registration AFTER you pick up your badge.

Only one of you would be able to get it.

Do the extra perks apply to Premium members or do you have to be a Premium+ member?

Also, are trial premium members eligible as well?

Are you eligible for this if you pay for crunchy roll via VRV? I pay for the channel bundle on vrv which includes crunchy roll, but not a separate crunchy roll membership on its own.
