A paid subscription to a favorite Substack publication is a thoughtful gift for anyone who values great writing and the people who create it.
I posted this in our last Writer Office Hours, and several people agreed it was a good idea, so I'll add it here too to give it extra emphasis. It would be great if we had the capability to offer a discount for people who are giving a gift subscription. Currently discounts are not included in the functionality of the Gift a gift subscription button. This would be a really great feature to have!
Can you give a generic gift and allow the recipient to apply it to one or more authors of their choosing?
Thank you for putting this together...! I was just in the midst of soliciting a few testimonials for this purpose--well-timed.
I love the discount idea Karen has suggested. Also, a post on how growth on substack actually works, (one consolidated post) will be a great idea.
Love the idea of the gift subscription button. We are gifting 2 premium subscription upgrades to investrly, the weekly financial newsletter empowering you to invest early in yourself.

How do you give multiple gifts? Make it easier please.
How this can happen, I did not give any subscription as a gift, but I got a paid subscriber and in reports it is writing that it’s a gift subscribtion?
I want to give complementary subscriptions to my Contributing writers/authors how do I do that?
How can I give a six-month subscription as a gift, rather than one month or one year? Is this option available?
I appreciate you putting this together! Well-timed, as I was just in the middle https://spider2suit.com of asking for some testimonies for this purpose.
I would like to gift a paid subscription to another substack author. How do I do that? I don't have their email address.
I would surely like to be able to offer discounted gift subscriptions in this time of sales and specials all around.
I have a subscription to a writer who is offering 20% off for a few more days. I’d like to purchase a gift subscription at the same price, but seem unable to do so. It’s only valid through the end of the month, could you help me? Thx!
How does one cancel a gift subscription? A friend of mine gave a gift subscription which is auto-renewing and they can't find a place to cancel it.
