I sent for a Value Pack March 5 and it arrived today----2 weeks and a day later. I snail-mailed in my order, plus I live on the opposite coast! That's the fastest service I've ever gotten! smile

That's great Frances! smile I ordered a value pack last week and hope mine comes as fast! The last time I ordered one it came about a week later.

Got my value pack today!! smile I ordered it just over a week ago, so it took about the same length of time as the last time I ordered one (a few years ago). It was a Logic Value pack (of course) and got 3 of the British Logic Problems so I'm a happy camper. I've seen Penny/Dell offer a deal where if you renew a subscription you get another one for free, so next time I renew my Math & Logic Subscription I might wait for that deal and get a British Logic with it.

Oh, the fun of a pack or box of new crisp puzzle books! It's like Christmas, isn't it Purple? Maybe I'll try an order online and compare the time factor. Do you ever like to do a page by page look-through in a new magazine, even if it's all the same type of puzzle? Part of my (pleasurable) initiation of it. smile

I agree Frances, it is like Christmas! smile It was fun opening the box to see what titles were included. I do a quick look through at first after opening the box, and then when I settle down with a new book I'll look through it and see what puzzle catches my fancy.

I was wrong. The free subscription you get when subscribing or renewing yourself has to be a gift subscription. Sorry if I confused any one.

I was wondering about that CC! What's the recommended waiting time to avoid getting duplicates when ordering value packs?

At least 6 months. I recommend a little longer, like 8 months. CC
