Advertising Information

How do I subscribe and what will I get?
Imbibe is published bi-monthly. A one-year subscription includes six issues and a two-year subscription includes 12 issues. There are subscription cards included in every issue, but for the fastest service, you can subscribe online. If you plan to purchase more than one subscription, visit our gift page and save 10% more on additional subscriptions. For subscriptions mailed to addresses outside the U.S., there is a $20/year additional postage fee to cover our costs.

 

I just subscribed. When will my first issue arrive?

Your first issue will be delivered 4 to 12 weeks from the date you subscribe. We include your subscription start date on our order confirmation page when you order a subscription.

 

I see the new issue on newsstands, but I don't have my copy yet. Where is it?
We know how excited our readers get to receive every issue! We do our best to ensure that subscribers receive our new issue before it's available for sale on newsstands.

I think it's time to renew. When does my subscription expire?
You can renew at any time to extend your subscription. To find out when your subscription expires, look to the mailing label on your latest issue. You will find an issue date printed above your name. That is the last issue of your subscription. Don't worry, though, we'll be sure to remind you in advance so you don't miss an issue.

 

Can I renew online?

I received an invoice in the mail. Can I pay online?
Absolutely. You can complete your order with our easy online invoice payment form. Just have your invoice handy and use your subscription number to log in and pay your invoice.

 

Why do you ask for my phone number and e-mail address when I place an order?
We value your privacy. In case there is a problem with your order or a magazine is returned to us, we need a way to contact you. We will never share this information with third parties, your friends, your enemies or any other nosy people. You can view our full privacy policy here.
