We often make special offers for new or renewal subscription orders made online.
New Subscriber Offers
Like many other businesses, we occasionally offer exceptionally low prices to attract new customers for a limited subscription period. Thereafter, like all our subscribers, these new customers are invited to renew their subscription at the regular rate, which continues to represent excellent value for money. We are therefore unable to extend these offers to our existing subscribers.

Early Renewal Notices
Renewal reminders are sent well in advance of subscription expiry date to ensure that our customers do not experience a break in service. Existing subscriptions are served in full before the renewal subscription begins.
Paying for Early Renewals
As soon as your renewal order is processed, we amend your subscription expiry date and generate an invoice for your additional renewal term. This allows you to make your payment early, avoiding the possibility that payment might be overlooked and guarantees your discounted price.
Alternatively, you could avoid renewal notices and bills entirely by joining our Preferred Subscriber Automatic Renewal Program. To join the program, please renew online.
Preferred Subscriber Automatic Renewal Program

At the end of your initial term and then before the start of each new term, we'll simply charge your credit card in time to lock in the savings then in effect. We'll send you a reminder, with a number to call if you wish to cancel, before we charge your card. For monthly Pay-As-You-Go, we will send you a notification before we charge your card, with a number to call if you wish to cancel, if there is a change to your monthly rate. You may cancel at any time during your subscription and receive a full refund on all un-served issues. If your credit card is inactive, we'll bill you directly instead.
To cancel your subscription please contact us. We will promptly stop your service and issue a refund for any unmailed copies.
