Late or missed issues

Airbnb Magazine is published 6 times a year. Your first issue will arrive 4 to 6 weeks after receipt of your subscription order. Delivery to mailing addresses outside of the United States may take an additional two weeks for arrival.

If your first issue does not arrive after 4 to 6 weeks, we may have an incorrect address on file or we may not have received your payment. Log into your account to verify if your name and address are correct before contacting us. Other factors that may cause a missed issue are:

  • A recent change of address
  • Your subscription has expired or has not yet started
  • Your payment has not yet been received
  • Postal delivery delays due to severe weather

If none of the above applies, report the missed issue online (after logging in). We will extend your subscription to compensate for the missed issue.

Damaged issues

If your issue frequently arrives damaged and your mailbox is sufficiently sized, check with the post office to determine that your magazine arrives there in good condition. You may file a complaint with your post office by requesting a postal tracking or Electronic Publication Watch. If this is an isolated event, report a damaged issue online (after logging in). We will extend your subscription to compensate for the damaged issue.

Duplicate issues

If you are receiving duplicate copies it is possible you have two active accounts. Please locate the account number on each issue mailing label and email us your request, including both account numbers and indicating which one you would like to retain. We will combine both subscriptions into one and extend service accordingly. Your new expiration date will appear on your magazine mailing label.

Continuous Service Guarantee

Our Continuous Service program takes all the hassle out of renewing your magazine subscription. It avoids service interruption by automatically renewing your subscription at the best available rate. The program terms were stated in your original order offer. You will receive a clearly marked annual reminder about 60 days before your credit card is charged or a bill is sent. If you choose not to renew, simply write "cancel" on your reminder and return it to us: no questions asked! Otherwise, your automatic renewal order will be entered and your credit card will be charged, or a bill will be issued. Your payment will guarantee uninterrupted service until the new expiration date of your renewed subscription, which will be printed on your magazine mailing label.

If you received a bill for your continuous service renewal, pay now (after logging in) to continue to enjoy your magazine without interruption.

If you prefer to receive traditional renewal notices instead of being enrolled in our Continuous Service program, you can change your Continuous Service option (after logging in) at any time.

You can confirm this by checking that the web address on the page that asks for your credit card information begins with "https:" instead of "http:" Other ways to tell whether a web site uses security software: Your browser displays the icon of a locked padlock or unbroken key at the bottom of the screen or status bar.

Sweepstakes subscription orders

Hearst Magazines often promotes exciting sweepstakes on their websites. Although no purchase is necessary to enter or win, we hope that if you did submit an order with your entry, you enjoy many hours reading Airbnb Magazine magazine. However, if you accidentally submitted a subscription order while entering a sweepstakes and wish to cancel, allow 24 hours for your order to apply to our system before submitting your cancellation. The Account Summary page will indicate if your order has applied.

Log into your account (you can use the email address/zip code or name/mailing address option if you don't have your account number yet) and if your sweepstakes order has applied, choose "Cancel Subscription" from the menu options on the left side of the screen. You will be instructed how to cancel your most recent order. A confirmation page will be displayed to confirm your cancellation. Regardless of your decision, your sweepstakes entry will be retained.

Disregard any electronic or paper bills you may receive, as they were probably issued prior to your cancellation taking effect.
