Which issue will my subscription start with and how many will I receive?
Print subscriptions are determined by our publishing schedule and start with the next issue to be released after the date of subscription. You’ll receive a total of four print magazines over the course of your subscription, receiving a new one each quarter. Online, you’ll also receive unlimited access to Kinfolk’s archives including the issue your subscription starts with, and all previous issues.
What are the benefits of subscribing?
Premium subscriptions give readers more than ever, including the newest issues of Kinfolk arriving to your doorstep four times per year at a reduced shipping price, plus full access to all issue content on Kinfolk.com, and a complimentary set of Kinfolk Notecards. Premium subscribers are also entitled to a 10% discount on all purchases through the online shop. Subscribers must be signed in to their account to benefit from the discount. The discount is applied at checkout, and does not include shipping costs, sale items or products purchased using a promotional code. We reserve the right to revise the subscriber discount without notice, and to exclude certain products from the offer.
Digital subscribers will gain unlimited access to Kinfolk.com for the duration of the twelve-month subscription.
Do subscriptions auto-renew?
All subscriptions will auto-renew on the day that they are due to expire: one year after purchase for print and digital subscriptions. We will inform you by email when your subscription is due to auto-renew. Please note that gift subscriptions purchased for someone other than yourself will not auto-renew.
Should you prefer your subscription not to auto-renew, you can disable this function in your account settings. Simply log in and access the user menu from the toolbar on the top right of the home page. Select “View Order” and click “Turn Off Auto-Renew.” This will end the recurring payment but continue the subscription for the remaining issues for which payment has already been processed.
