We have been working on the third issue of Uni - The Unicycle Magazine and it will be out at the printers at the end of the month. It promises to be a great issue with features on extreme unicycling in New Zealand, India, cold weather riding and a group test on the latest innovations in commuter lighting technology.
As usual we will let you know when your copies have been mailed.
special advance warning for US readers
Due to exchange rate fluctuations we are being forced to increase our subscription price to $72 and a single copy price to $12.
WE WILL NOT INCREASE THE US PRICE UNTIL AFTER THE 23RD OF MARCH. you have been warned…
So if we already have a subscription, we have to pay another $12? Or if we already have a subscription we don’t pay extra, but anyone that buys them from the 23rd onward has to pay the extra?
The latter. You’ve already paid US$60 so you don’t have to pay any more - anyone subscribing or buying a single copy after the 23rd March 2006 will have to pay the higher price. We thought it would be nice to give a little warning.
That doesn’t seem right to charge an additional fee if you’ve already paid the initial subscription. That would be like slapping a rate increase on your homeowner’s insurance during the policy period.
After the paid subscription either lapses or is renewed can price increases be levied. Once you pay for something in full, and in good faith, you should not be expected to pay one cent more…you’re “locked in” at that rate.
I know some piano technicians that give a slight discount if a client pays for 3 or more tunings in advance. Once the customer pays in full for these future tunings, the technician wouldn’t be justified, in any way, to try to collect more money from the customer, sighting a price increase because of whatever. AGain, once you’ve paid IN FULL for goods and/or services, your locked in.
Thanks for the warning! I’ve been buying them one issue at a time, but took the 6-issue plunge today to avoid the impending increase. It’s a great magazine. Thanks for all your effort!
did you mean that, or this:
23rd March 2007?
ahem… yes - 2007! thanks Edd!
