You've got questions? I've got answers!
Who are you, Ben the Rooster?
I’m a barnyard pen pal for kids ages 2-8. I write two postcards each month about my life on the farm, and I love sending them to my little friends.
When are the cards sent?
I send the postcards on the first and the sixteenth of each month.
When will my little reader get the first postcards?
That depends on the cutoff date. If a month has 30 days, the cutoff date is the 10th of the month. If a month has 31 days, the cutoff date is the 11th of the month. February? The 8th of the month, at least in 2017. So, as long as you subscribe your little reader by the cutoff date, he or she will get two postcards that month. Phew - that was a lot!
Can my little reader send you a reply?
Yes, of course! I love getting mail from my pen pals. You can use one of my already-stamped Reply Postcards, or you can have your little reader make a homemade card! Please send replies to the following address: Ben the Rooster, PO Box 1001, Atlanta, GA 30301.
How much do the postcards cost?
I have two subscription plans for the cards. You can subscribe on a month-to-month basis for $4.00 per month, or you can subscribe on an annual basis for $44.00 per year. Both plans automatically renew.
When do you bill me?
On the first of each month.
The first month of your subscription is a bit different though. When you subscribe, I bill you immediately for the first month of postcards. This means that if you subscribe by the tenth of the month, you pay for the two postcards that your little reader will receive that month. And if you subscribe after the tenth, you pre-pay for the postcards that your little reader will receive the next month - don’t worry, I won’t bill you again in that next month.
Why do I create an account upon checkout?
You create an account in order to manage the subscription. You’ll be able to change certain details like the payment info and the delivery address. You login to your account by clicking on the button in the top right of your screen.
How do I cancel the subscription?
Just login to your account and cancel, but don’t expect me to be happy about it!
What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
Thought you’d never ask - mint chocolate chip. Can’t send that to the PO Box though. Send me a note, I’ll tell you where to send the ice cream!
