If you are on a monthly package, you may skip the month and no payment will be taken for your next month. Collection will automatically resume on the 1st of the month after. We are unable to reverse a skip so please do so carefully. If you are happy to continue payments but don't want a book that month, we offer the chance to 'bank' your slot. This is a process whereby you leave the slot open with no book selected. This will remain open and you will be able to come back and pick a book at any time whilst you have an active subscription.
If you are on a gift or pre paid subscription (3, 6 or 12 months) then you can 'bank' your monthly slot and use it at a later date. Banking is a process whereby you leave the slot open with no book selected. This will remain open and you will be able to come back and pick a book at any time whilst you have an active subscription. Unfortunately you cannot push your renewal date but you will always get the amount of books that have been paid for.
Open slots can be redeemed up to 14 days after a subscription has expired. Outside of this 14 day cooling off period, open book slots will be closed and can no longer be redeemed unless you have an active subscription.
