This document provides the Terms and Conditions for your use of Blinu. You must agree to be bound by the terms of this agreement during the Blinu registration process or you will not be able to proceed and become an account holder or use the service. Blinu sells products and subscriptions on behalf of the owners and publishers of websites who are our Affiliates.


Protecting your privacy is important to us. Please review our policy. By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, you're also consenting to the terms of our Privacy Policy.

Electronic Communications

When you visit our website or send emails to us, you are communicating with us electronically. Once you do so, you consent to receive occasional emails related to your relationship with us or your transactions and account. You agree that all agreements and notices that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirements that such communications be in writing. This does not include promotional materials, which you have the right to opt out of during the registration process. Once you are an account holder, you can visit the "My Account" section of our website to opt out of promotional materials at any time.

All content included on this site, such as text, graphics, logos, and software, is the property of Inarsoft, LLC, the parent company of Blinu, or its participating Affiliates and is protected by federal and international copyright laws. The compilation of all content on this site is the exclusive property of Inarsoft, LLC and is also protected by federal and international copyright laws.


Blinu, blinu.com, inarsoft.com and other Blinu graphics, logos, and service names are trademarks, registered trademarks, or pending registered trademarks of Inarsoft in the U.S. and internationally and may not be used in connection with any other product or service that is not owned by us or that is likely to cause confusion among customers in the marketplace.

Your Account

As a Blinu account holder, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, and you agree to accept responsibility for any fees or charges incurred under your account or password. Parents or guardians who wish to allow their children under the age of 14 to use Blinu should supervise their use of this service. Once you complete the registration process, provide us with an e-mail address and submit your payment information, your offer to subscribe is not accepted until we have successfully validated this information. To execute this, we share your information with our credit card processor, a secure third-party vendor expressly hired by Blinu for this purpose. Our vendor does not share your information with any third party and uses it exclusively for the purposes of processing your transaction on our behalf.

Payment Conditions

When you use Blinu to purchase any of our Affiliate subscriptions or other products, you must provide us with complete and accurate payment information including your credit card number, expiration date, as well as a valid e-mail address. If we do not receive credit card authorization or if any authorization is subsequently canceled, we may immediately suspend or terminate your access to our service. If you are entitled to a refund under these Terms and Conditions we will credit the account that you used to submit payment. If your credit card account is expired at the time of the refund transaction, we will contact you at the address you provided at the time of registration to facilitate your refund.

Pricing and Renewals

Discounted Rates and Renewals
The subscription prices you pay through Blinu are determined by our Affiliates. Some publishers may offer a discounted online subscription price for existing print subscribers of their publications. We reserve the right to work with that Affiliate to validate your current print subscription in an effort to qualify you for the discounted rate. Discounted rates are valid only for active print subscriptions. We reserve the right to charge the retail rate if we cannot validate that you have an active print subscription. You must cancel your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of fees for the renewal term to your credit card.

The specific terms of any promotions we may offer will be stated at the time the promotion is offered. Each promotion may be different and they cannot be combined. When you sign up for a promotion, you will be required to provide your payment details. At the end of the promotion, you will be automatically signed up for the related subscription which will begin at the end of the promotional period. You will not receive a notice from us that your promotional period has ended. You must notify us before the promotion ends if you wish to cancel and avoid being charged.

Gift Subscriptions

Gift Subscriptions are issued and managed by Blinu ("Issuer").

Gift subscriptions are not redeemable for cash and cannot be returned for a cash refund; exchanged; resold; or used for other purchases through Blinu.

When you purchase a gift subscription, Issuer allows you a three-month time period from purchase to have your gift delivered electronically. At six months from electronic delivery of the gift subscription to recipient, if the recipient has not activated the subscription, Issuer will auto-redeem the subscription by activating it for recipient.

Your use of Issuer's services to purchase gift subscriptions includes the ability to enter into agreements and/or make transactions electronically. You acknowledge that your electronic submissions constitute your agreement to be bound by these terms of the Gift Subscriptions and to pay for such agreements and transactions.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

You may cancel any subscription purchased through Blinu at any time through our self-care system. If you choose to cancel, your subscription will expire on your next billing date. Canceling via our self-care system will not process a refund, but will prevent you from getting billed in the future.

If you would like your subscription canceled immediately and would like to request a refund, you must contact our Customer Care team directly at info@blinu.com.

Standard Subscription refund terms are as follows unless otherwise stated by the publisher at the point of purchase:

  • Subscriptions that span up to 12 weeks (3 months): Customers must contact us within 48 hours of purchase. The subscription will terminate immediately and a full refund will be issued. Subscriptions that span up to 12 weeks are not eligible for pro-rata refunds.
  • Subscriptions that span 12 weeks (3 months) or more: Customers must contact us within 30 days of purchase to receive a full refund. The subscription will terminate immediately. Any requests for refunds made by the customer after 30 days will be entitled to a pro-rata refund for all unused months of your subscription. The pro-rata refund will not include a reimbursement for any charges for the current month regardless of date.
  • Please note certain subscription options you purchase may be marked as non-refundable. No refunds will be granted for non-refundable subscription purchases. All non-refundable subscriptions will be clearly marked as non-refundable at the point of purchase.
  • Gift Subscription refund terms are as follows:

  • Gift subscriptions are eligible for full refunds within 30 days of purchase or prior to gift recipient activation, whichever comes first.
  • Refunds are not permitted once the gift subscription has been activated by the recipient under any circumstance.
  • The customer who purchased the gift subscription is the only person who may request and receive a refund.
