Not necessarily. If you are already a print subscriber and choose to add the digital package for $5, your print subscription will be up for renewal based on when you purchased it, and the digital subscription will be up for renewal according to when you purchased it. In other words, your print and digital subscriptions will be timed independently.
Note that if you purchase everything at the same time, via the Daily Word Premium Package, your subscription periods for print and digital may still be different:
- Your print subscription will begin with the next issue being mailed and may not start until several weeks after your order. You will receive six bimonthly issues for a one-year subscription.
- Your digital subscription will begin as soon as you place your order, although your “official” subscription will be timed as beginning on the first day of the next month and ending 12 months later.
Yes. As long as you are a Daily Word print subscriber, the cost of purchasing the digital package as an add-on will only be $5, both initially and for renewals.
