The Magazine Format/Content
Chocolate Connoisseur Magazine is created each and every month as an E-zine.

The magazine content is published exclusively on the Chocolate Connoisseur Magazine website, requiring a login.  Logins are included as part of each subscription or single issue purchase, instantly giving you full access to ensure a top tier and seamless reading experience.

The magazine menu is initially accessed via each issue’s Content Center, which for individual purchases is downloadable as a PDF (pre-OCT ’19 content) or is viewable online (OCT ’19 issue and beyond), and for annual or monthly subscriptions is also sent initially to subscribers as an email.

Once you navigate to an article on the site, all other articles in that issue are accessible via the Issue Menu at the bottom of each article, making it quick and easy to navigate each issue online — all via your desktop, laptop, mobile phone, tablet, etc.

Chocolate Connoisseur Premier Membership – Annual (Auto Renewal)
PLEASE NOTE: Chocolate Connoisseur Premier ships to USA shipping addresses only.

Purchasing a Chocolate Connoisseur Premier Membership gives you automatic access to every single chocolate offer we publish during the twelve (12) months of your membership. This equals ten (10) offers in total, one per month, except for the months of June and August, in which no chocolate offers are published.

The offers will be automatically shipped to you, no action required, other than to always make sure your shipping address stays current on your account. Chocolate Connoisseur will not be responsible for items shipped to an incorrect address, if the shipment was properly shipped to the address indicated on your account.

Chocolate Connoisseur Premier Memberships auto-renew every year, so you never miss a chocolate offer, and you can cancel anytime to prevent future billing.

All Chocolate Connoisseur Premier Memberships also include a free Annual Subscription to Chocolate Connoisseur Magazine, which gives you access to the current issue, and then the following 11 issues, equaling one issue per month for 12 months.

Annual Subscriptions (Auto Renewal)
Purchasing an Annual Subscription of Chocolate Connoisseur Magazine gives you access to the current issue, and then the following 11 issues, equaling one issue per month for 12 months.  Annual Subscriptions auto-renew every year, so you never miss an issue, and you can cancel anytime to prevent future billing.

Monthly Subscriptions (Auto Renewal)
Purchasing a Monthly Subscription of Chocolate Connoisseur Magazine gives you access to the current issue.  Monthly Subscriptions then automatically renew each month, ensuring that you never miss a single issue, and you can cancel anytime to prevent future billing.

Single Issues

Accessing Subscriptions and/or Single Issues
In order to access your issue(s), you will need to login with your ChocolateConnoisseurMag.com Login and Password, which you create when purchasing your magazine(s).  Each single issue grants up to three separate Content Center downloads to allow for any technical issues you may encounter, etc.  If you try to download your Content Center PDF (pre-OCT ’19 issues only) a fourth time, you may be denied access, and if so, you will need to contact us at support@ChocolateConnoisseurMag.com for further assistance, but you will still have access to all the issue content itself on the site (https://chocolateconnoisseurmag.com/chocolate-blog/issue-content-subscribers/)

Payment Options
Unless otherwise stated, Chocolate Connoisseur requires payment in full at the time the order is placed.  We accept several different payment options, currently via either PayPal or Stripe.  We will not be responsible for a delay in magazine access if your credit card is not approved.

Refunds and Returns
Because we offer instantly accessible digital content, Chocolate Connoisseur does not offer refunds or returns.  You may cancel at anytime, however, and will not be billed again.

For physical products, however, we offer a 30-day return policy. Just contact us here for any returns.
