We hope that it has been a great start to 2023 for you. As always, we would like to say thanks for subscribing to your favorite magazine or newspaper with us. We look forward to continuing to provide entertaining and informative publications to your mailbox!
As seems the new normal, everything around us continues going up in price. Again this year we have endured price increases from airlines and freight companies, the publishers who face higher paper costs and the USPS which has increased most postal rates effective Jan 2023. As such, you may notice an increase in your renewal depending on the title. We are committed to keeping any increases in 2023 as small as possible and appreciate your understanding.
Over the past few months, there have been changes in a number to a number of titles. These changes include title name, frequency, price and sometimes the discontinuation of a publication. To date, we have seen the following changes over the past six months or so:
- Burda Plus has changed its name to Burda Curvy
- Freundin will publish 23 issues in 2023, rather than the usual 24. There will be no Issue #3.
- Gong Super Rätsel was discontinued.
- Kicker (Monday) – the distributor has substantial increased the purchase price which is now reflected in the renewal rates.
- Lisa Kochen and Backen will publish six times in 2023 rather than monthly.
- Mein Schönes and Landhaus has cancelled Issue #2 – and will publish 5 issues in 2023.
- Merian has suspended publication until Oct 2023
- Wohen Träume has changed its name to Garten & Wohen Träume
Our policy for most changes involving frequency or cancelled issues, is to adjust the existing subscription accordingly. So, for example, if a publisher decides not to publish an issue, your subscription would be extended by an issue. On occasion, a publisher may combine two months into one larger issue. In this case, the subscription would remain the same as we incur more freight, postage and handling costs. If a title has been suspended, or discontinued, typically we will connect directly with subscribers to offer alternative titles or other options.
When a change is made in frequency or subscription costs this is always reflected in our e-commerce site www.dmpubstore.com so we would encourage you to visit our site regularly. While you are there, take the time to scroll through our library of German magazine and newspaper titles available. We have also expanded to offer other languages and titles including English, Spanish, Italian and French.
As a reminder, we offer 1st Class and/or Priority Mail subscriptions for most of our magazines and newspapers. This may be of interest to those that subscribe to our collection of weekly titles. Our website contains USPS estimated delivery times for each class of mail under the Delivery Tab.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-877-776-5835. Again, we thank you for your subscription.
Please stay safe and healthy.
