  • Q: Why did I receive duplicate issues?

    If you are receiving duplicate issues, the first step you need to do is look at the account numbers on your magazine mailing labels. If the numbers are identical, then this is likely a one-time printing error. If the account numbers are different, then this needs to be reported to us. To report receipt of duplicate issues, please email or call us at 1-866-709-4985

  • Q: How do I replace a missing issue?

    If you never received a certain issue, please email or call us at 1-866-709-4985. If the issue is still available, we will mail you a replacement copy immediately; however, if we have run out of this issue, we will extend your subscription expiry date accordingly and promptly reply to you with our action taken.

  • Q: When does my subscription expire?

    We start contacting our subscribers about their renewals approximately 3 months prior to the subscription expiry date. To renew your subscription please go to or call our office at 1-866-709-4985.
