Q:

I want to gift someone but what happens if they have had service and they don't meet the qualification guidelines. I want this to be a surprise and therefore do not want to ask them. If they are not a new subscriber or have had service in the past 60 days, will I get a refund?

kathy h.  asked on  Jun 24, 2013

A:

Please call 919-829-4694 and that person can check the gift recipient's address to see if they are an active subscriber or recently stopped their subscription.

Q:

I'm trying to sign up for this deal but it's saying that it may not be able to deliver to my address. I live in Morrisville (27560) and there are others on my street that get this paper delivered. My house is a new construction so that may be why. I am getting the following message when I try to purchase the deal and it won't let me complete the order: "We may currently be unable to ship to this address. Please correct your address, or contact customer support for assistance in placing your order." Can you complete the order for me?

Kinjal P.  asked on  Jun 24, 2013

A:

We provide delivery to your address so this appears to be a problem with the order form. We are working to get this corrected. You can call 919-829-4694 in the morning and that person can help you with your order.

Maria F.  asked on  Jun 22, 2013

All of the orders are redeemed immediately. However, we have many orders to enter so we are estimating it will take a week to get orders entered after they are purchased.
