Frequently Asked Questions
Can I access the same issues on all of my digital devices?
Yes, you can download the app on multiple smartphone or tablet devices. You simply enter your same login information to access the same issues on your various devices.
What is my customer/account number?
Your customer/account number is assigned to your account when you first subscribe. Your customer number is the first 12 digits on the magazine label if you receive a print magazine (Note: includes the leading zero). You can call Customer Care if you do not know your customer/account number. Call Customer Care at 800-234-3368 (outside U.S. & Canada, call 785-274-4365).
