Membership Information



Why become a member of Allrecipes?

By becoming a member of the Allrecipes Community you can save and organize your favorite recipes, create shopping lists, and get time-saving cooking tips from our newsletters. And it’s FREE.

  • Just click here to sign up.
  • We’ll take you through the steps to set up your FREE membership.


What types of memberships does Allrecipes offer?

Allrecipes is FREE. When you register, you get a FREE Recipe Box and full access to all the recipes on Allrecipes. You also get FREE newsletters and FREE email alerts.


How do I get FREE Newsletters and Email Alerts?

As a member of Allrecipes, you get FREE access to our newsletters. Click here to join the Allrecipes Community. Then follow the easy prompts to set up your membership and select the newsletters you want to receive. You have total control: get them all, pick and choose, or receive none. You’re in total control and at any time, you can change your preferences.


How often will I get Allrecipes emails?

You decide! If you sign up to receive email alerts, you’ll find them in your mailbox based on the frequency you requested—either daily or weekly. But don’t be alarmed if you don’t get a scheduled alert—it just might be there are no new bread or low-carb recipe submissions (or whatever cooking topics you signed up for). That means you’ll get emails up to once a day—or up to once a week—depending on the frequency you choose. Don’t forget you can change your preferences at any time. Just click on your display name and go to Settings.
