I recall on the trion website that you can purchase the game for 50$ and pay 10$ a month if you buy 6 months at a time. Is this available if I pre-ordered through steam? Im in the beta right now so Im not sure if that affects it.

The founders rate is available to all subscribers who subscribe before March 15th. Where you bought the game is of no consequence.

yes they are available, i got mine yesterday, when you input the preorder code from steam they will ask you to pick a subscription.

do note though that you will not get your pre order items during the head start if you have the retail box copy of the game. As far as I know only the Digital versions will receive their in game items during head start.

also there is another thread in this forum with info on how you can save 20% off on the game if you haven't already purchased it.

With that being said if you are a TF2 gamer then you might want to just pay full price and get it from Steam as you will also get 2 in game items for TF2 by purchasing from steam.

I was reading some threads on the official RIFT forums, and apparently there is a way with a retail code (where on earth you'd get that, I don't know) to have the mount and the pet during the head start, but unfortunately not the extra backpack space.

It was apparently a compromise the developers came to so that the retail folks aren't completely left out of the bonuses.

You cannot get the bag because they wouldn't be able to remove it if a CE key isn't entered, whereas the mount and pet can easily be removed.

Ah, interesting. I didn't remember (if it was stated in the OP of that thread) what the reason for the bag being left out was.

Also, thanks for posting the link since my lazy ♥♥♥ didn't. :)
