Gift subscriptions

With subscription gifting, you can gift a $50 membership subscription for one year to another Medium user.

Gift a subscription

To gift a subscription to someone:

  1. Go to and click Give Medium.
  2. Enter the recipient's name, email address, as well as your contact information. Optionally, you can schedule your gift to be sent on a specific day and include a short note.
  3. Click Continue to payment and enter your credit card information.

Note: The gift code can only be claimed by a Medium user without an active membership subscription. However, Medium members can give as many gifts as they'd like!

Redeem subscription code

To redeem your subscription code:

  1. Go to
  2. Enter your gift code and click Start my membership.

Common questions

Do subscription codes expire?

Subscription codes do not expire and can be activated at any time.

Do I need to connect a credit card to be able to redeem the code?
No. Redeeming a subscription code activates a non-recurring subscription plan for one year, and after that time it will cancel automatically unless the recipient decides to renew it.
