About Vault Insider Program (VIP)

I bought Borderland 3 on Steam a few days ago.

‘The Vault Insider Program (VIP) will be shutting down on May 18, 2020’ But the VIP is only two months away.

I hope to extend the period for steam users.

But the manager won’t see this article …

Why do You need to “extend” it?
You could collect points before steam release and now just “redeem” items for Steam.

Maybe I’m missing something, but where/how do we redeem VIP codes. The gearbox site, and Borderlands sites both only show SHIFT codes. If the VIP program doesn’t end for (as of this post) almost a month and a half away, why take away the VIP codes?

In www.Borderlands.com > Insider > Redeem code?
