When do you send out Renewal Notices?

Renewal notices normally begin being mailed three issues before your subscription is due to expire. For example, if your subscription expires with the April issue you would begin receiving notices in the month of November.
Because of the mailing and processing time, you may often receive a notice even after you have renewed. This is common in the magazine industry. To reduce the number of notices you receive you should renew early or for a longer period of time. Remember, there is no risk should you decide to cancel your subscription. We will always refund you for unmailed copies.
You may also receive occasional Special Renewal Offers from us, even though you may have a while before your subscription expires. If you have a question about these, email us here subs@gunsmagazine.com or call our customer service department at the number listed above.
For your convenience, you can renew online by ordering here, we will extend your current subscription by the term indicated. Return to top
