Hi, this is what I understand, please someone correct me if I am mistaken, but the price is listed as single issue or subscription. You may cancel at any time and you only pay for the monthly copies you received if you take that option. Or you can just buy month to month, skipping issues you may not want. You may use a gift card for single issues, all subscriptions must be from your credit card on file. Also the first publication of each and every magazine is free. I though this was just for the first magazine that I wanted and not for each magazine offered in the nook shop. You must remember to cancel after receiving the free 14 day trial if you do not want to continue to subscribe. All in all it is a good deal. Good luck. S
