    1. How can I contact Macworld about my subscription?

    If your question is not answered here or if you need to contact us for any reason, please include in your inquiry, your name and address exactly as it appears on your magazine label or invoice.

    E-mail: subhelp@macworld.com

    2. When will my subscription begin?

    In the U.S., your first issue will arrive approximately 4-6 weeks after you placed your order. Outside the U.S., please allow approximately 12 weeks for your first issue to arrive.

    3. When does my subscription expire?

    You will find your expiration date in the upper right hand corner of your Macworld address label. In the upper left hand corner directly above your name is your unique subscriber number. Always include this number in any correspondence to us to ensure prompt service. (Better still, include your actual label whenever possible.)

    If you do not have your label handy, you can login to Customer Care to find out.

    4. Why did I receive an invoice when I signed up for a free trial issue of Macworld?

    The free trial issue is part of a trial subscription. After you've received your first issue, if you decide you like Macworld, pay you're invoice to continue your subscription. If you decide Macworld is not for you, write "cancel" on the invoice, return it, and owe nothing. The first issue is yours to keep.

    5. I will be moving soon; when should I write to inform you?

    We need at least eight weeks notice to ensure uninterrupted service of your Macworld subscription. Please be sure to give us both your old address (exactly as it appears on your magazine label) and your new address when making an address change. If you have accessed your account, please click on the 'Change Address' link. If not, please login to change your address. You may also call 1-800-288-6848 (within the U.S. and Canada), or 1-515-243-3273 (outside the U.S. and Canada).

    6. How can I receive fewer renewal notices?

    You can sign up up for Automatic Renewal Program. How does it work?

    If you do not wish to enjoy Automatic Renewal Program at this time, please call our Customer Service department to discuss other options for reducing the number of renewal notices you receive.

    7. How can I get back issues of Macworld?
