Can I Choose Which Months My Pup-scription arrives?

Absolutely! If you need every other month, let us know on your questionnaire and we will work within your time frame.

I’d like to pick up my order monthly, do I get a discount?

If you’ve opted to pick up your order, we are so excited to see your face in store! We will be giving you an extra goodie (sticker, magnet, card, pin etc) to balance out the lack of shipping costs, so no discount will be applicable.

I don’t want to receive stickers or other gifts in my boxes, do I get a discount?

Sadly, we cannot give a discount if you opt out of the swag and gifts.

Can I use my educator discount?

Un-fur-tunately discounts cannot be applied. 

Can I use a gift card, summer reading coupon, full punch card or store credit to pay for the subscription?

Gift Cards: Yes!

If I order multiple subscriptions, can I get a discount?

We cannot offer discounts even if you purchase multiple subscriptions. The best way to save money is to pre-pay for 6 months (5% discount) or 12 months (10% discount) of your subscription.

I would like the box to arrive by a certain date. Can you do that?
