Our memberships are prorated so that applicants only pay the portion of the year remaining based on the quarter in which they join (our membership year runs from January 1 - December 31).


We will send the recipient a gift package containing a letter explaining the gift, a special gift card bearing your name, an application for membership, a brochure explaining all the services and benefits of membership, and a current issue of The American Philatelist, our monthly magazine. Membership will be processed as soon as the recipient completes and returns the membership application.

A Gift for you the Giver

If you are an APS member giving this gift, you also receive a gift! Current APS members receive a $5.00 check every time they are credited with sponsoring the new membership of a fellow collector who joins APS. It's our way of saying "Thank You" for your support of the Society.
