I have a question/problem, who do I email?
You should send an email to info at onceamonthmom.com and please include the following:
- First and last name associated with your Paypal Account:
- First and last name associated with your membership account (if different than above)
- Email address associated with your Paypal Account:
- Nature of your question/problem/concern
What does membership get me?
With a paid membership you will get access to the customized ready to cook documents that accompany our menus. This includes recipes cards, grocery lists, step-by-step cooking instructions and labels for all menus from January 1, 2012 to present. You will also receive access to all of our ebooks for free.
Can I customize the menus?
At this time you can adjust the number of servings that you want to make on the recipe cards and grocery lists and they will adjust. These documents do not currently “talk” to one another, they are independent documents. That means if you want to delete recipe(s) from the menu you will need to manually deduct the ingredients from the grocery list yourself. In the future, it is our hope that we will be able to add this functionality and when we do our yearly members will receive some extra financial savings for being loyal members from the start.
Mix-and-Match menus is NOT AVAILABLE at this time.
Can I share the my membership with my cooking partner?
Membership is one per household. Unless you are in the same household we ask that you not share membership resources.
How fast do I get access to membership when I sign up?
Immediately after registration and payment are received!
I paid through Paypal but wasn’t sent to a registration page, now what?
Does membership start on the 1st of the month like menus?
No, membership starts the date you sign up. If you sign up for a monthly membership your membership renews on the same day of the month as the month you purchased (ie. if you purchase on January 3rd it will renew on February 3rd). If you sign up for a yearly membership your membership will renew on the same date the following year (ie if you purchase on January 3rd, 2013 it will renew on January 3rd, 2014).
Will there be mistakes on menus now that I am paying money for them?
Our menus go through a 3 month process before they ever get published; however, given that you can adapt them to our family size and we personally customize the recipe cards by hand, it leaves lots of opportunities for human error. Until we have a new database system that can manage this process more accurately there will continue to be errors from time to time. We have instituted some additional check points to improve our system and we promise to correct any errors we find in a timely manner. We believe that the service and resources we offer are well worth the money.
Can we opt out at any time? Cancellation policies?
Yes, you can sign up for a quarter or a year, cancel at any time. No haggling.
**PLEASE NOTE: There will be no reimbursements for signing up for 1 month of membership and then canceling. All sales are final on monthly memberships. On yearly memberships, if you find you don’t want the service you signed up for you can cancel and get a partial refund (yearly cost minus 1 month) as long as you email us at help at onceamonthmom.com within 30 days of purchase – Paypal DOES NOT notify us, you must. All cancellations after that time will not be reimbursed.
**PAYPAL NOTE: If you choose echeck (paying from bank account instead of credit card or Paypal funds) with Paypal that these transactions take 3-5 days to process. You will be able to register but will not be able to access your account until your payment clears through Paypal. Canceling your membership also takes place immediately, not after your membership month expires. So please wait until the end of a month/year to cancel or contact us at help at onceamonthmom.com if you did so accidentally.
**Please note, after you go in and cancel your account via Paypal, you will no longer have access to the membership system.
Can I gift a membership to someone else?
Yes! You can gift a yearly membership to a person/persons of your choosing. You need to know their email address. You can even choose a date for sending the gift certificate so that it arrives on a special day (birthday, anniversary, etc).
When I purchase membership do I only get access to the current months menus?
No. You get access to ALL menus, ALL types from January 1, 2012 to present and all those months moving forward for which you are a member. That means you don’t JUST get access to THIS MONTHS menus you get access to all previous months menus. If you sign up for a year membership you get membership for the UPCOMING year with access to all past menus as well.
I have never tried a Once A Month Mom menu and I’m not sure if it is right for me, do you have a trial period?
There is no trial period because all the menus prior to January 1, 2012 are FREE. This means you can try those without putting any money into membership. You can also sign up to subscribe once a month and if you find you aren’t using the menus or it isn’t for you, you can cancel your membership.
I am currently a monthly member, can I switch to switch to yearly membership?
