I really love curling up in bed with a good book or a great magazine in hand; especially after working all day long on the computer! When will the EXTRA be offered as a real magazine???

Submitted by

Hello. I downloaded and installed the Almanac Extra! App on my Kindle Fire HD. After reviewing the free issue I decided to subscribe, and I did so using the app itself. The order processed through the App and billed to my Amazon account, I confirmed the digital subscription on my account. However, I have had no issues delivered to my device, and when I try to view all issues, they still have a price attached to them, even the Feb and March issues when my subscription was supposed to be Feb 2015-Feb 2016.

2 enthusiastic thumbs up! Great magazine. When will there be a print version?

Great reading.

I look forward to reading the monthly Almanac. Aside from ordering online can you order by phone?

Last November I ordered the monthly online and did not receive it.

I had ordered it on a weekend and allowed a few days for processing my credit card.

When I did not receive the digital magazine, I emailed customer service which was a nightmare!

The person could not find any record of my purchase but my bank stated otherwise.

It was finally rectified and how I found out was when I logged in and found it in my account. I did not even receive an email from the person who I was corresponding with!

In the future if I have an issue, what is the phone number that I can use for questions or help with my subscription?

Thank you,

Regina Wilcots

Sorry for the confusion regarding our monthly digital magazine. It cannot be ordered over the phone. Since it is a magazine for your computer it has to be bought with your computer for technical reasons. Call 1-800-ALMANAC anytime you have questions or concerns. We stand behind our products and have a very friendly 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Why don't you have hard copies for the monthly magazine?

Submitted by

Dawn,
The Almanac Monthly was born as an online/digital magazine and is still innovating and relatively young (you can say that when you are celebrating your 224th birthday). The good news is that our readers love the fresh content and the audience is growing quickly.  Perhaps we will offer a hard copy printed version in the future. Perhaps we won’t have a choice. Thank you for taking the time to write and show your support—it’s appreciated.

I clicked on the red 'add to cart' button in order to order a one year subscription to the Monthly, and then I clicked on the checkout button and the invoice showed 19.98 due for "The Old Farmer's Almanac Monthly Magazine - 1 Year Digital Subscription $19.98"

So I too, am confused. Is this for a hard copy and digital access?

Submitted by

It is only $9.99 for the year and no shipping charges either. You may have had 2 loaded in your shopping cart by mistake..

Hello,

I have purchased the digital subscription and enjoy reading it on my computer and Kindle. When I tried to download the app through Google Play for Android, it states that it is not compatible with my phone. I have a Samsung Note 2. It is android, so I am not sure why it is not working.

Hello Tamara,

At this time the Almanac Monthly is only available for tablet.  It is not formatted for smart phones.  If you have any questions please contact almanacsupport@yankeepub.com. 

Thank you,

I absolutely love The Old Farmers Almanac. I do all my planting, transplanting, cut hair, all things listed in best days. Believe me, all of it works. At first I was very skeptical. Try it—you can't do without it.

Are the monthly magazines geared for our particular regions?

Submitted by

The Monthly magazine is for readers in North America. The articles are not specific to a region.

You haven't answered my first question yet, but I think I have figured it out. I just need to know can I only read the Digital Monthly Magazine on the computer I used to order it? I have 3 different laptops. I know it says if you order from your website you can see it on all of your electronics, but is that also 3 different laptops? Do you have a FAQ section? I can't seem to find one. If not...I think you need one.

Submitted by

From any of your desktops, laptops, or tablet just log into Almanac.com. In the "My Account" section (button is on the top right of the page) go to your "Files" tab. On the Files tab you'll see links to various Monthly issues. Just click any link and read. Thank you for your interest.

I’m confused. I was thinking I would order the monthly with the free digital. I only see a way to add the Monthly only for $9.99 or Monthly + Digital for $9.99 is that a total of $19.98? Is the monthly a paper copy?
I clicked on the Monthy + Digital and it’s only for the Digital, and it said I could add $65.01 and get standard Shipping…that sounds like a deal..NOT! Very confusing!
Farther down it says if you click the red button to order the $9.99 that you will give info on how to access it. But it says… Note: If you purchase here on Almanac.com, your subscription price gives you access to the Monthly from all devices at the same time: an iTunes, Amazon, Google, and your computer. I have a Kindle and a Android Tablet plus a laptop computer, so I would be able to access them all?
So…I’m confused the same red button $19.98 if I want the digital too - or $9.99 for just the monthly??? I wish there was someone you could talk to on the phone. When I called they could not help me.

Submitted by

The cost of the Monthly is $9.99. If you add the digital/online version of the Almanac still only $9.99. Not sure where you are seeing $19.98.
Yes if you buy here you will be able to read it on your different devices.

The Monthly has no shipping charges. On the first page of the checkout processes it says "add $65.01 for free shipping" because although we don't charge shipping for the Monthly we still count it towards qualifing for meeting our free shipping level ($75) on physical products.

I'd love to be able to access Almanac Monthly from my iPhone. (I do not have an iPad, and I do not want another electronic device.) Would you please consider making almanac Monthly available through the Newsstand App, like other monthly periodicals such as Reader's Digest and Good Housekeeping?

It has been under consideration. Unfortunately, no immediate plans for an iPhone version. Thank you for your interest and taking the time to write.

I'd like to buy the digital subscription as a gift for someone with an Android device. Can you tell me the best way to do this so they can access it but won't get an email ahead of time saying I bought it?

Submitted by

Hello AnnSFord,

Unfortunately there is no way in our store to "gift" a digital subscription at this time. I also went to Google Play store and they too do not have a way to "gift" products. This is a good idea though, we'll put it on our list to work on for future.

Sincerely,

Paul

Is there a Canadian Digital monthly magazine? I get weekly emails now does the monthly magazine have the same content?

Submitted by

Good question. Our bi-weekly emails are about a half-page. This Monthly magazine comes out twelve times per year and contains about 60 pages per issue! The email has quick tips and deals. The magazine is filled with articles and stories as well as a weather update. The magazine is much more in-depth and a true read.
The Monthly magazine is for North America and contains both the U.S. and Canada weather updates. There aren't regional or national editions.

Thanks to The Almanac I can always pick up where I left off. Even though houston doesn't provide much space I bring the garden to houston by finding inovative ways to use space wisely. The Almanac helps me become a success and envy of all my neighbors by providing amazing knowledge and up to date information and reminders. Thank you! !

Can't I just order a 2015 F.A. online? Why does it have to be combined with all these other issues & offers. The stores around here don't carry the F.A. so why can't I just get one from you all for $4.95 or whatever you are showing them for. I don't want a monthly computer issue. I just want the good old F.A.

Why isn't this possible?

Submitted by

Not only is it possible–We encourage it.

Just click here.

Hi Syndee, Nope, this is a digital magazine for tablets, though you can download to your desktop and enjoy the way you are reading right now! We recognize that some folks would like a paper version, but we're only able to publish the annual book, The 2015 Old Farmer's Almanac, in print at this time.

Dear Sirs, can I have my farmers almanak mailed to mexico address???

New Mexico—yes; Mexico—no. The Almanac only covers the U.S. and Canada (special edition); consequently, we only sell in these two countries.

I really want this almanac, and what a great price. Can I mail order it to Canada? I can't find it in Kelowna B.C

Thanks Dee

very misleading! I just called to order this Halloween edition and was told it doesn not exist. ??? Why advertise a book that isn't available?

Submitted by

Hi Dee, The October (Halloween) edition of the Almanac Monthly is available. To order, just choose your option above and click on the red "Add to Cart" button. Note that the Almanac Monthly is a digital (online) magazine so it doesn't matter if you live in the U.S. or Canada. You can read it on an ereader/tablet or on your desktop comptuer. It is instant access--so no shipping.

In terms of print, at this time, we publish The 2015 Old Farmer's Almanac annual book. You can find the Canadian edition here: 

www.almanac.com/product/2015-old-farmers-almanac-canadian-edition

The annual book is a different publication. I hope this clarifies things. The Almanac Monthly is fairly new so many readers are not yet familiar with it. (We were pleased to learn that those readers who have discovered the Monthly said that they really love it, according to our recent survey!)

If you get this email, please do let us know who said that the Almanac Monthly does not exist so that we can follow up. We apologize in advance for any confusion. Sincerely, your OFA editors
