WHAT IS THE COST AND DURATION OF A BILLIARDS DIGEST SUBSCRIPTION?
In the U.S., the cost is:
• $30 for one year (12 issues — a savings of 35% off the newsstand price).
• $43 for two years.
• $55 for three years.
One-year subscriptions outside the U.S. cost $46 (U.S. funds only).

CAN I GET A SUBSCRIPTION OVER THE PHONE INSTEAD OF ONLINE?
Sure. Call us at our 24-hour, toll-free subscription line: (888) 313-7665.

CAN YOU BILL ME OR SEND A SUBSCRIPTION C.O.D.?
No. We accept cash, check, Visa or Mastercard with your subscription order.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR MY SUBSCRIPTION TO START?
It takes approximately six to eight weeks for a new subscription to begin with the first issue. Then BD usually arrives in subscribers' mailboxes within the second week of the issue date (i.e., the November issue would arrive between Nov. 1 and Nov. 15). Note: if you subscribe before the first of the month, you will receive your first issue(s) starting the next month. Otherwise your subscription will start with the following month's issue.

WHY IS THE PRICE SO HIGH FOR FOREIGN SUBSCRIPTIONS?

The price is dictated by the cost of international postage.

DO YOU GIVE AWAY SAMPLE COPIES?
No. Copies of the current issue of Billiards Digest are available for $3.95 each. All back issues since January 2000 cost $7 each. All back issues before January 2000 cost $10 each, plus a one-time $15 retrieval fee. For more on ordering back issues, go to back issues.
