The Lunduke Journal Subscription Upgrade System (of Awesomeness)

Did you know that you can subtract the total amount you have spent — in the current calendar year — on any Lunduke Journal subscription… towards upgrading to a Founding Member subscription?

It works like this:

  1. Add up the amount you’ve spent on any Lunduke Journal subscription… then subtract that from the cost of a Founding Member.

  2. Go to Select “Annual” and “Card”.

  3. Enter the amount of the subscription you want (125 for Founding Member)… minus the amount you figured out in step 1.

Example: You are a regular, monthly subscriber at $5 per month. It is now October. You can subtract $50 from a Founding Member subscription, bringing the cost down to $75 for the next year for the higher level subscription. Sweet deal.

A Founding Member subscription is annual — and your new year starts right then. Which means you have, potentially, saved quite a bit of money on the next year worth of subscription.

Note: If you need any help determining exactly how much you have spent on Lunduke Journal subscriptions since January of the current year… simply email Lunduke ( or send him a private message on He can look that up pretty easily.
