Introductory Offer/Promotional Discounts

Your subscription may start at an introductory/promotional rate. This rate lasts for the amount of time specified during sign-up. The Surfer’s Journal reserves the right, at its absolute discretion, to determine your eligibility for such offers. Your introductory/promotional starts immediately after sign-up. At the end of your introductory/promotional rate subscription, your subscription will automatically be renewed at the rate for the corresponding subscription product on the website at time of renewal. The Surfer’s Journal will automatically charge your payment method at the rate stated on the website, for your subscription type at the time of renewal, on a recurring basis in accordance with the terms of your subscription.

If you cancel before the end of your trial, your payment method won’t be charged. You may cancel your introductory/promotional rate subscription by visiting your account page or by contacting customer support.

Your eligibility to use an The Surfer’s Journal introductory/promotional rate offer is determined solely by The Surfer’s Journal. Your access to said offer is provided at The Surfer’s Journal’s sole discretion.
