Edit:
I saw it on ggdeal, and the direct link is here: https://www.humblebundle.com/membership/checkout?duration=annual&promo=holiday22
Not only new membership, you can gift the annual plan to yourself, it will added to your humble account. I tried it, and get another 12 months credits.
When you use this link, don't forget to choose "this plan is a gift". Use the promo code HOLIDAY22 and pay. You will receive an email with a link. use that link and log in as yourself, confirm the gift.

Thanks for the heads up - worked for me - recently canceled, then picked up this months with a $7 offer - then purchased the 12 mo as gift for myself, and redeemed and re-up date is now 12/26/2023 - Thanks !

Same here. I used $7 offer for this month and picked 12 month gift subscription. Question: is it okay to use 12 month gift subscription now or later when this month ends (when I picked this month for $7 offer)? I was thinking if I use now 12 month gift subscription, won't I lose one month from 12 month gift subscription because I used $7 offer for this month?

Also, I received email from HB. It is saying:
"GIFT INFORMATION
Remember, you will need to send this gift link directly to the recipient.

If you visit the link above, make sure not to redeem the gift yourself - that's what the recipient will do!"

Won't be problem to activate for myself as a gift?

The gift link does not expire and it is no problem to redeem it yourself. Personally I will also take the $7 / 7€ offer for this month and I already bought the annual offer as a gift. But I will wait and see if I get a better coupon for december (less than $7.25 / 7,25€) and maybe even the following months before redeeming the gift subscription.

Hello again. What will you do when your currently subsctiption of november month ends (this month $7 / 7€ offer)? Are you going to skip a month or cancel membership? I am asking this because I want to receive a coupon from HB for december. Do not know which way is better to do in order to receive coupon from HB.

Comment has been collapsed.

It doesn't really make a difference if you pause or cancel to wait for a coupon. I pause shortly after the new games are revealed and wait for a coupon and most of the times I do get one. Shortly before the auto-charge date, I decide if I want to buy it or not. And if I need the store discount in the meantime, I unpause for a few minutes to buy something with it and then I pause again.

I contacted their support last month, and it took 7 business days (11 days total) for them to get back to me. I believe they tell you it can take up to 10 business days for a response.

This was during their game key drama with the RPG Legends: Baldurs Gate & Beyond bundle though, and I'm sure they were getting at least 5 times as many support tickets as usual, so hopefully you won't have to wait as long as I did.

Your Annual Plan order is being reviewed for accuracy
A member of our support team needs to verify the information and will complete the order as soon as it is resolved.

During this time, the order may show as pending on your statement, but we will not complete the charge to your bank or credit card until we figure things out.

This used to happen to me in previous orders. It's likely you'll receive this message if you haven't bought a lot (or too much) from them recently. It shouldn't take more than a day or two to process, but if it takes longer make sure you contact support!

I just wanted to further confirm others' reports that you can take advantage of this offer if you are on the classic annual plan. I've been an annual subscriber of the Monthly since its inception and was able to purchase this as a gift and then gift it to myself. I had not activated my November choices prior to this, so if you already have, you should be able to hold on to your gift and then gift it to yourself when the December bundle rolls around. Hope this helps some other classic annual subscribers who have been taken for granted by Humble and left to watch a lot of good deals go by.

You might be recalling when skipping... something, I don't remember what... would lose you the "Classic" status, which allowed you to choose more games from the selection than the other levels.

However, that's since become irrelevant, and was mostly irrelevant even when it was a thing, since they "allowed" most purchasers to select all of the games every month anyway, with the non-classic top tier.

was kinda tempted, but there's a slight change following the direct link. few days ago it auto-selected the gift option, now it don't. also a notice appeared:

Only one Humble Choice membership per account. As an active member, you can only purchase a gift plan for another account. Learn more

so, this looks a workaround -for existing subscribers- they're trying to fix (and/or they will), i'm not interested anymore...

In the information box, there is a hyperlink ("Learn more") to this FAQ page:

This page mentions gifting and provides a link to this other FAQ page:

There is no information there about any issue with gifting to yourself.

Q: Is it possible to gift a plan to my own account? 

A: Yes, you may purchase a gift plan and claim it to your own account. This will function the same as a personal membership; however, you will not receive a recurring charge unless you already have an active plan. If so, you will receive a credit added to your account for a future month, but this will not cancel your recurring charge. 

Q: Do gift links expire?

A: No, gifts links do not expire; however, you cannot claim a month that has already passed by using a gifted plan.

Interestingly, there could be an explanation for people who have trouble redeeming the gift:

This means the gift cannot be redeemed to your account, likely by having too many credits from a previous purchase or gift. Unfortunately, you cannot stack more than 24 total credits (24 separate months). 

Wait until your current membership ends to claim the gift. Fear not, gifts links do not expire; however, you cannot claim a month that has already passed by using a gift.

About gifts to a different account than your own:

If purchasing it as a gift, payments will not recur.
This means you will not be charged again once your friend's membership runs out.
https://support.humblebundle.com/hc/en-us/articles/360036684093#gift

However, keep it mind that payment will recur in two other cases:

1) Purchasing for yourself NOT as a gift:

If purchasing it as a personal (non-gift) purchase, payments will be recurring.

2) Purchasing for yourself as a gift if you already have an active plan with a recurring charge:

This will function the same as a personal membership; however, you will not receive a recurring charge unless you already have an active plan. If so, you will receive credits added to your account, but this will not cancel your recurring charge.

So, if your brother has a recurring charge, then gifting a 12-month plan to him won't cancel his (already existing) reccurring charge. He would get 12 credits, but his current plan would not be cancelled.

If what Humble support told me (since I have the same problem) is true we will be able to redeem it next month
I quote
"You will be able to redeem your annual plan on the first tuesday of next month. You will be able to do this because you have come to the end of your current annual plan.

Starting next month (December) you can do something by either unlocking your content early or waiting for content drop day (1st Tuesday of every month)."

And it worked so I am guessing they canceled my sub for a second. I still have 20% discount if that interests you and I am still Plan Type: Classic Annual

If you directly bought the annual offer or bought it as a gift and redeemed it already, you automatically bought November Choice.

The annual plan is considered to be multi-month, where 12 full months are paid for upfront. Purchasing the 12-month plan will give you credits that you can use as payment tokens for a future month of Humble Choice. As a note - you will automatically unlock the current month (there is no way to avoid this) when making your annual plan purchase.

Quick question, if I don't select games for a new month does that mean the monthly credit is not used for that month from the annual plan? As in it's a manual process and not automatic each time there is a new month? And from the annual plan if we pass a month does our store discount reset?

As in it's a manual process and not automatic each time there is a new month?

No, it's automatic process :) If you don't skip a month you'll get monthly bundle (so it will be -1 credit and you'll get all games) - https://support.humblebundle.com/hc/en-us/articles/217300487-Humble-Choice-Early-Unlock-Games.

And from the annual plan if we pass a month does our store discount reset?

It will reset to 10% - https://support.humblebundle.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000303608-Humble-Choice-How-to-Skip-and-Resume-Your-Membership (but someone wrote here that discount will stay the same - will not reset)
