Mechromancer DLC is Borderlands 2 Preorder Bonus

Gearboxity has a follow-up to the news from PAX East about plans to add a fifth playable class to Borderlands 2 via post-release DLC. This clarifies that this Mechromancer content will be a preorder bonus for the role-playing shooter sequel, and paid content for everyone else:
As a special thank you to our early supporters, the Mechromancer will be available as a free download to members of the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, which you can gain access to by pre-ordering Borderlands 2 from a participating retailer. The Mechromancer will also be available as premium downloadable content for those who aren't Premiere Club members at the same time. For more details on the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, please visit this thread and borderlands2.com/preorder.

Good news since I will preorder the moment it's on Steam. If you don't like it well then don't preorder.

Did you even read the news blurb? Premiere club is only given with a pre-order with the listed retailers. Steam is not among them. That means while this is a steam game, your pre-order on steam is worthless in that regard. It does not give you premiere club and does not give you the DLC for free.

If this is not how it is then maybe Gear Box should explain what they mean better. Because thats what their website says.

It's the first few days, give them some time to get it sorted out. When the page went up yesterday Best Buy wasn't even listed and was added later so its all still being worked on. It's also likely that the retailers want an advance period before DD preorders are started but it doesn't necessarily mean that DD preorders won't get bonus content.

When their forums come back up I'll write a quick post asking what the dealio is.
