That’s okay – if you buy a subscription during Subscriberthon we’ll extend your current subscription by four issues, and you’ll go in the running to win! Last year during Subscriberthon, I opted for automatic renewal. Am I still eligible for prizes this year? Yes! Once your auto-renewal has gone through, we’ll put you into the prize pool for the corresponding Subscriberthon day. So if you subscribed on Day Two of Subscriberthon in 2014, you’ll go into the prize draw on Day Two in 2015. Can I buy a subscription for my friend? What a lovely thing to do. Of course you can – just enter their details in the shipping section. Your friend will get four issues of Overland delivered to their door and go into the running to win one of our excellent prizes. Oh no! I subscribed last week! Have I missed out on all the Subscriberthon fun? Absolutely not! If you subscribed on or after 22 October 2015 you’ll still go into the prize draw for the Major Prizes and the Regional Prizes. Can I just make a donation? You can indeed!
