Subscription Issue

If an attempt to collect funds for a recurring subscription fails, we'll automatically try again a number of times over a 7 day period, to help ensure that you remain a member and do not lose any loyalty benefits.

Most subscription issues can be easily resolved, simply by setting up a new agreement via credit card or PayPal. 


Set up a new agreement

Setting up a new agreement automatically cancels the older one. 

Any remaining membership days of your old subscription will carry forward before your new subscription starts.

As long as you do not lapse in membership for longer than 7 days, your new agreement will still take into consideration any grandfathered rate you paid previously for membership.
