Let’s pretend your name is Frank Shortcake and you live in the USA. And let’s say that, like a lot of people, you purchased a year-long subscription to our Quarterly Editions last September. And finally, let’s also say that our current “free USA shipping on subscriptions” offer was valid at that time. Well then, Mr. Shortcake, you would have paid $97. All in. Here’s what you would have received during the year.
A subscriber-exclusive “Power of the Pen Laptop Sticker”
Some other nice extras like a sticker or pin
The Sum of All Things
If you had bought all these editions individually they would have cost $115.45, and that does not count the nice extras and subscriber-exclusive items. Unless you had spent $50 or more each time you placed an order, you would have also paid another $20 for shipping, bringing your total to $135.45. So, that’s a pretty good deal for $97.
But here’s the thing Frank. You would not have received, or been able to purchase, the surprise shipment of Commemorative Reprints. Those and other subscriber-exclusive items are never offered for sale, they’re gifts for the people who have supported us by signing on for a year.
Our Quarterly releases are limited editions and when they’re gone, they’re gone. Subscribers know they’ll get theirs and they know they’ll get them first too, since we ship to subscribers before we announce each Quarterly Edition.
