Award Point Subscription Data Now Available in the Periodical Analyzer

Updated Media Intelligence Center report calculates the number of magazine copies purchased with award points.


AAM’s Periodical Analyzer recently released an update to its Post Expiration report to now include details on award point subscription copies. Award points (also known as loyalty points) may include frequent flyer miles or credit card member points that can be used to purchase magazine subscriptions. For a more detailed description of award points, please see Rule F 8.9 Subscriptions Purchased with Award Points. Let’s look at where to find this revised report and what data it provides.

After you’ve logged in to the Media Intelligence Center, use the search bar and filters to narrow your list of magazine titles. Click on the box next to Publication Name to select all the titles in your list. Then choose the Analyze Data button.

Choose your titles and then click the Analyze Data button.
