~Longtime subscriber: Julie solved the problem promptly, which was an overpriced gift subscription for my nephew. She offered me a reasonable price for a * year extension of the gift, took my card information, and we were done in under two minutes. I did have my own subscription number handy, which I am sure sped the process along. Wish I had called sooner. She answered the phone in under a minute.
