Someone's birthday coming up? Want to send the best 'Thank you' note ever? Need a gift for that book lover that's so hard to buy for? Gift an Everand subscription to your favorite bookworm!

How do I send someone an Everand gift subscription?

It’s easy! First, click here to open the gift purchase page. Select the duration of subscription time (6 or 12 months) and write a personal message, then fill in the recipient’s information. Next, decide how and when you wish it to be delivered -- we can either email the gift directly to the recipient for you (now or at a later date) or you can print out a gift message and hand-deliver it yourself.

What kinds of gift subscriptions are available?

Our current gift subscription offers can be viewed at Everand.com/gift.

How does the recipient redeem an Everand gift subscription?

Once your lucky recipient has received their code, there are a few ways to redeem:

  • If we sent them their gift code via email, they just need to click on the 'Redeem Now' link included in the email to view and redeem their subscription.
  • They can head over to Everand.com/redeem and enter in their gift code.
  • If you printed out their gift message, the instructions and code will be included.

What if the person I give an Everand gift subscription to is already a paying subscriber?

That’s ok! The time value of the Everand gift subscription will be applied to their existing subscription. They just need to log into their Everand account and go through the redemption process. Once they’ve redeemed the gift subscription on their account, they won't be charged for their regular subscription until your gift expires!

If your recipient has an active Everand subscription through the App Store or Google Play, they’ll need to cancel their subscription prior to redeeming the gift. The same is true for some of our longtime PayPal subscribers (more recent subscribers using this payment method should be able to apply gift subscriptions as normal). We know it’s a bit of a hassle for these subscribers to use a gift subscription, and for that, we apologize. Due to restrictions on adjusting these payment methods, we are unable to modify subscriptions purchased via the App Store, Google Play, or PayPal directly, which includes automatically adding gift subscription time to an existing subscription. Here’s a quick overview of this process and what to expect:

  1. First, the existing App Store, Google Play, or PayPal subscription will need to be canceled. Please refer to our article “How to cancel your subscription” for specific instructions.
  2. Once the subscription is canceled, it will need to expire. This means waiting until the end of the subscription period - for example, if your subscription billed you on the 15th and is then canceled, it will remain active until the 15th of the next month.
  3. After the subscription expires, the gift code can be redeemed by heading to Everand.com/redeem!

During this process, including waiting for the subscription to expire, the subscription will remain active, with access to premium Everand content. The transition should be seamless and easy and they can always contact our support team to check the status of their account!

What devices can members use to access the Everand library?

The Everand app is available on iOS/iPad OS devices, Android devices, and devices like some Kindle tablets and the Nook Tablet. Readers can also use Everand's website on a laptop or desktop browser. If you’re interested in using our Scribd app, check out our article “Installing the Everand app” for more information and detailed installation instructions.

Do Everand gift subscriptions expire?

Everand gift subscription codes have no expiration. If your recipient isn't quite ready to read with us, no need to worry! They can redeem the code at a later date when they're ready to dive into a good book.

I don’t have the email address of the person I want to give this to, or I'd like to present this gift in person. What do I do?

Don’t stress, you can give Everand gift subscriptions the old school way!

During the customization process of purchasing the gift, choose the “Print” option, and we’ll send you a printable template of the gift subscription voucher. Print the message out, and you can snail mail or deliver it by hand.

I’m purchasing this gift subscription today, but I don’t want the recipient to get it until later. What do I do?

We understand; you want to plan ahead and not be caught by surprise when the big occasion finally comes up, we totally get it. You can schedule the email to be sent on a future date! Or, simply go with the physical message option: print it out, and hand-deliver it when the day arrives. But never fear, if you want to buy ahead, you just have to put in the date that you want it emailed to your gift recipient and we'll email it that day, and send you a confirmation when it's done.

I’m trying to send an Everand gift subscription to someone in another country. Is that ok?

Of course ⁠— Everand is available worldwide! Everand can be accessed in most countries, except where local service providers or legislation prevents access. For specific international questions, please contact us.
