Premium with Recurring Renewal

From: $9.00 every 3 months

Premium upgrades, renewals, gifts, and gift renewals which automatically renew when it’s time. See below for complete details.

You must create an “account” in this shopping cart for recurring subscriptions to work. It is highly recommended you use a credit/debit card, rather than Paypal, when you check out, since this gives you the option of later changing your renewal frequency if you wish.

Comments/Special Instructions (such as gift recipient name/email) can be added when you check out.

Looking to Provide Extra Support with your renewals — and get extra benefits? That’s on this page. If you prefer, subscriptions without auto-renewals are here.


Optional extra to help support This is True. Add any dollar amount:

The Premium edition of This is True has all the stories each week — not just the five articles in the free feed. You get a lot more True with a Premium Upgrade, which has several other valuable features:

  • You get the entire column, not the abbreviated selection of the free feed. The full column has at least 10 stories each week — often more.
  • No outside (third-party) advertising to interrupt your reading.
  • Arrives much sooner than the free edition (late Monday nights).
  • You get occasional extra features and stories that are not sent to the free-feed subscribers.
  • You are left on the free distribution — you can decide for yourself whether you want both or not. (Many Premium subscribers prefer to get both.)
  • You get a 20% discount on This is True book collections, with no minimum or maximum — if you’re buying books as gifts (a great idea), this benefit could easily pay for your Premium subscription!
  • Easy address changes*.

*You can update your address as often as necessary — see the bottom of any issue for a special update address. Since we are rather open with our “free samples” (you know what you are getting before you pay for it!), there are no refunds should you unsubscribe for any reason.

Should you wish to unsubscribe or change the amount or frequency, you can Update/Cancel your Recurring Subscription yourself, or send Randy an email clearly explaining what you wish changed.

Please leave any comments, gift message or special instructions (include name and email of gift recipients!) in the comment box.

Q: Why would I want to pay more than the regular rate?

A: To support the publication to help it thrive and stay online, and this kind of support means less future need for price increases (and smaller increases when they do happen), which enables more people to upgrade. This option was requested by existing Premium subscribers. More here.
