Price Reduction for International BQ Subscriptions

BQ50-54_covers
Good news: We’ve found a less expensive way to send Bicycle Quarterly to our international subscribers! Our readership has grown so much that we are now able to access bulk mailing options. We are passing on that reduced mailing cost to our subscribers and have lowered our international subscription rates.

If you subscribe now, your Winter issue of BQ will be included in our “mid-term” mailing between two issues, and you have a good chance to get your first BQ by the holidays.
For U.S. subscribers, we’ve made similar efforts to keep the subscription price low. Consider this: When Bicycle Quarterly first started 13 years ago as a slim 24-page black & white issue, the annual subscription price was $ 32. Today you get full-color, 90-to-100-page magazines for just $ 36.

    I don’t suppose this applies retroactively? I renewed my subscription this summer for a two year period.

      Sorry – just like we won’t ask you to pay more if our costs go up, we cannot offer refunds when we decrease prices. The main reason is simple: Imagine all the time our staff would have to spend to figure out how much to refund. It would cost more than the refund is worth…
      But we’ll work hard to keep the costs low, so when the time comes to renew, you’ll still benefit from the lower prices. In the mean time, the (small amount of) extra money allows us to bring you even better stories.

    Great news. I’ve always thought the international rate was a bit high, but hey, its for BQ so I was happy to pay it.

      In the past, we actually subsidized international subscriptions, because the postage was so high. With the new consolidated shipping, we actually are making the same on international subscriptions as we do on U.S. ones.
