I'm afraid he's correct on this one. Right at the 
top of the SCA membership form 
(http://www.sca.org/members/us-mem-form.pdf) it says:

• Sustaining: $35.00 - Subscribing membership; Includes a subscription to your
Kingdom’s newsletter via 3rd class postage.

In the online membership form 
once you enter your name and address, the next screen says:

Membership Type
Sustaining Membership: $35.00 / year
A subscribing membership for those served by U.S. 
Postal Service. Sustaining members receive a 
subscription to their Kingdom's newsletter via 
3rd class postage, and are eligible to hold 
office and any other privileges designated.

But I agree that using "subscribing" and 
"sustaining" interchangably is kind of confusing.
