Q. I have already paid -- why am I still getting bills?
A. When we send an invoice for a shipment you have ordered, we allow 4 weeks to pass before we send a follow-up invoice. Sometimes we may receive your payment a day or so after we have already sent the follow-up invoice. If you have already made your payment and receive another invoice afterwards, you may ignore it. You can check your account online for up-to-date information.
Q. How do I know that my credit card is secure when I order from you or make a payment over the Internet?
A. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software that is among the best available today for secure Internet transactions. When you place an order or pay your bill on-line, this software encrypts all of your personal information, including your credit card number, so that it cannot be read as it travels over the Internet.

A. Please call customer care at (800) 829-5865 if you experience a problem making a transaction to your online account.
Q. Do you accept International orders?
A. We currently are only able to ship orders to the U.S. and Canada.
Q. What is your policy concerning mailing lists?
A. We regularly communicate to our customers through the mail with information and offers from our family of companies. From time to time we make our customer mailing list available to other companies that sell goods and services that we believe would interest our customers. (We do not provide customer telephone numbers to these companies.) If you prefer not to receive any of this information, or if you wish to receive only information from our family of companies, please notify us at MailPreference@Annies-Publishing.com
For one thing, itís a whole lot of fun. Youíll chuckle at many of the styles, curiosities and fads of the era. Youíll marvel at how much has changed in technology and everyday conveniences. And youíll enjoy the old ads, with their soft-sell approach and focus on everyday family events.
But another reason is to gain a sense of perspective. Life goes by so quickly, and todayís world is a busy and complicated place. Everyone is in such a hurry, rushing from place to place with cell phone in hand.
Itís good to take a look at what life was like in a slower time. It can help us to slow down, calm down and appreciate the simpler things in life. No, things werenít perfect back then, but there is much hard-earned wisdom for us to draw on and many old traditions that are well worth preserving.
Most of all, you will be moved by the strength and heroism of an exceptional generation of Americans. With a war raging, everyone was united in a common purpose, ready to make any sacrifice to ensure victory.
