Advertising Information

Is there a newsstand near me that sells Imbibe?
Most likely! You can visit our Where to Buy page to find a store near you or contact us directly and we’ll help you track down a copy.

How do I subscribe and what will I get?
Imbibe is published bi-monthly. A one-year subscription includes six issues, and a two-year subscription includes 12 issues. There are subscription cards included in every issue, but for the fastest service, you can subscribe online. If you plan to purchase more than one subscription, you can visit our gift page and save 10% more on additional subscriptions. For subscriptions mailed to addresses outside the U.S., there is a $20/year additional postage fee to cover our costs. We also offer a digital edition of Imbibe, currently available for iPad and iPhone devices (more platforms to come) for $20 per year.

I just subscribed. When will my first issue arrive?
Your first issue will be delivered 4 to 12 weeks from the date you subscribe. We include your subscription start date on our order confirmation page when you order a subscription.

I see the new issue on newsstands, but I don’t have my copy yet. Where is it?
We know how excited our readers get to receive every issue! We do our best to ensure that subscribers receive our new issue before it’s available for sale on newsstands. If it’s been more than two weeks since the magazine appears on newsstands and you’re concerned, just feel free to contact us and we’ll investigate what happened.

How do I change my subscription address?
We’d like to hear from you as far in advance as possible to ensure you don’t miss an issue. For quickest service, click here and enter your old and new addresses and contact information. If you’ve already moved or missed an issue due to a move, please email us with your full name, old address and new address.

How can I keep up with Imbibe between issues?
You can sign up to receive news, recipes and special offers via our free monthly e-newsletter, Tasting Notes. And be sure to follow us online at and on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram for our up-to-the-minute coverage of liquid culture.

How do I give Imbibe as a gift? Who will receive the renewal notices?
A subscription to Imbibe makes a perfect gift for family, friends, clients and colleagues. You can order gift subscriptions here, and the more you give, the more you save! On all gifts, we ask that you specify who should receive the renewal notices; if this information is not provided, we will send renewal notices to the gift recipient. If you wish to make changes on a past gift order, please contact us.

I think it’s time to renew. When does my subscription expire?
You can renew at any time to extend your subscription. To find out when your subscription expires, look to the mailing label on your latest issue. You will find an issue date printed above your name. That is the last issue of your subscription. Don’t worry, though, we’ll be sure to remind you in advance so you don’t miss an issue.

Can I renew online?
Absolutely. We encourage you to renew online here. If you have it, you can simply enter the subscription number on your renewal invoice or mailing label. Or, you can provide the full name, city and postal code that appear on your mailing label.

I received an invoice in the mail. Can I pay online?
Yes! You can complete your order with our easy online invoice payment form. Just have your invoice handy and use your subscription number to log in and pay your invoice.

Why do you ask for my phone number and e-mail address when I place an order?
We value your privacy. In case there is a problem with your order or a magazine is returned to us, we need a way to contact you. We will never share this information with third parties, your friends, your enemies or any other nosy people. You can view our full privacy policy here.

Can I buy back issues?
Our full library of back issues is available to browse and order from here. Back issues are just $5 each, plus shipping and handling.
