Frequently Asked Questions

Why has my magazine not arrived, or is damaged?

Our shipping policy states that if you’re a new subscriber, we must have received your subscription order by the first day of the month prior to the issue date.  In other words, to guarantee that you’ll be on the subscriber list for the January/February issue, we must have received your subscription order by the first of December, for the March/April issue, the first of February and so on.

If you’re not a new subscriber or your subscription order has reached us per the above policy, it could be those U.S. Postal workers are writing songs on the job again…or Mother Nature, or an incorrect address. If your magazine has not arrived or has arrived damaged, don’t panic. Just please give us a call at 888-881-5861 or E-mail us: americansongwriter@pfsmag.com. Since all issues are mailed at periodical rates, we can’t guarantee delivery but we will gladly extend your subscription.

We like happy customers, so our refund policy states that at any time or for any reason you’re unhappy with your subscription, we will gladly issue you a refund for all un-mailed copies.  No questions asked.

I have changed my address – what do I do now?

If you have a change of address, please call 888-881-5861 or E-mail us:  americansongwriter@pfsmag.com.

*American Songwriter is not responsible for any missed or lost issues due to a change in address or the failure of the Post Office to forward mail. Please remember to update your address before you move.
