Print subscription:

When will I be sent my first issue? 

Once you’ve subscribed, you will receive your first issue within 9 days of placing your order. In most cases you will receive the next available issue, meaning a much shorter wait, however if you ordered on a Tuesday or Wednesday you will receive the following week’s issue. 

I have not been receiving my issues. Why?

If you have an active print subscription, taken out over 9 days ago and have not been receiving issues, please email archantdigital@subscription.co.uk or call 01858 438840 and a member of our Customer Service team will look into this for you. 
We will happily extend your subscription period for any issues you have missed. 

Print subscription – vouchers: 

Some of our subscribers opted for a voucher scheme when they subscribed. Through this scheme, they receive vouchers in the post and use these to purchase their issues at a shop. If you opted for home delivery, you don’t require vouchers and this section isn’t relevant to you.

When will I be sent my vouchers?

Once you’ve subscribed, you will receive your vouchers within 7 working days of placing your order. 

I have not received my vouchers. 

If you have not received your vouchers after 7 days of subscribing, please email archantdigital@subscription.co.uk or call 01858 438840 and a member of our Customer Service team will look into this for you. 

Where can I use my vouchers?

You can use your vouchers at any retailer who stocks The Ham & High. 

How do I use my vouchers? 

There is a barcode on each voucher which the retailer will scan against the relevant weeks issue.  You simply need to hand your voucher to the retailer in exchange for a copy of the paper.

I am going on holiday/will not be in the area to use my voucher – Can I use them when I return?

Unfortunately, vouchers can only be redeemed against the specific issue assigned. If you are unable to collect a specific issue, we recommend passing this to your local retailer in advance and asking them to save you a copy for when you return. Alternatively, you may wish to pass on your voucher to a neighbour or friend who may enjoy the copy in your absence. 

I forgot to use my voucher on a previous week - what do I do now?

Unfortunately, vouchers are not transferable to other weeks, so you will not be able to use the voucher on another issue.
