What is it?

  • This Subscription Program is a Member Benefit for Association Institutions (it is not available for individual members) to use as an incentive to attract new members.
  • This Member Benefit is available for new members to an Association Member Garden/Institution.
  • The Subscription Program provides a one-year magazine subscription to each person that purchases a new membership from an Association Member Garden.
  • The Program is voluntary – the Association provides a one-page form that garden staff can print and give to new members that join.

What are the Guidelines?

  • Your Institution must be a current Association Institutional Member.
  • This Member Benefit is intended to be an incentive to increase your membership sales.
  • Please do NOT send forms to current members.
  • If a new member already has a subscription, they can complete the form & mail it to get a bonus year, or click on the link on the form.

What Do I Have to Do?

  • Each participating Garden/Institution will designate a representative (or the Membership Manager).
  • Email the form to your new members. 
  • After you print out the form, simply distribute them to people that have purchased new memberships – It is best to include the forms in your acknowledgment letters.
  • Do NOT distribute the subscription forms to current members – The Subscription Program is intended to drive FUTURE membership sales.
  • This Program is NOT retroactive.
  • Provide clear instructions: To redeem the subscription, each person must fill out the form and mail it directly to Better Homes & Gardens (not to you). Clarify to your members that it does NOT happen automatically. They have to complete the form. Allow 6-8 weeks for processing. They may use the link.
  • You are encouraged to promote this Member Benefit on your own website as an incentive to new members.
