If I use my credit card to purchase online, is my information safe?

If you are ordering from us for the first time online then you will need to pay upfront with your credit card when you place the order.

How do I know my Sweepstakes entries are processed?
Every order placed on Reader's Digest Direct receives automatic entry into each of the open prize draws promoted on our Sweepstakes Page.
From time to time you may receive promotions offering you additional sweepstakes opportunities, either by mail, email or even promoted within the store. To ensure your entry and eligibility for these you may need to enter additional information in the checkout process.
- Mail Promotions with Sweepstakes Codes: If you received a promotion in the mail which says to go online to order and redeem your sweepstakes opportunities, it's likely you will have been given a 'Sweepstakes Code' located on the address label on the envelope. When entering a Sweeptakes Code, you must also enter your Reader's Digest Account number to identify who you are. This ensures that these additional opportunities reserved for you are exclusive.
- Email Promotions using Coupon Codes: If you received an email promotion, chances are it is either a general promotion or it could be a special offer that can be redeemed by entering a 'Coupon Code' during the checkout process. If the Coupon Code represents a discount, (eg. 'Enter coupon code SAVE10 to save $10 off your order') the discount will only apply to your shopping cart once you have entered the Coupon Code and proceeded to the Order Review & Payment screen.
