Q. Why am I receiving bills with a Trial Subscription?
A. We realize that it is confusing to receive an invoice at the start of your risk-free subscription.

You are welcome to wait until you have received all three of your trial issues before making a decision. If you choose to pay early, please be reassured by our full money-back guarantee.
