Best way to center text

I am working on a page that displays a subscription offer.

The copy is something like this…

All of this will be wrapped in a box with a border that is maybe 30% width of the entire screen.

I have my box pretty much done, but am wondering the best way to tackle positioning the text and marking it up? :wonky:

The “$1” should be much larger font and center within the box.

The text below that should be centered in the box, but left aligned. I was going to rely on padding for that.

The button would need to be centered.

And the bullet points left aligned.

I guess my main question is how to style the “$1” part…

Would just styling a

tag be the way to go?

Hi UpstateLeafPeeper,

here is an example, that may help to get you started…

<html lang="en">

<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width,height=device-height,initial-scale=1">

<title>untitled document</title>

<!--<link rel="stylesheet" href="screen.css" media="screen">-->

<style media="screen">

    background-color: #f9f9f9;

h1 {
    color: #555;
    text-align: center;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    letter-spacing: 2px;

#container {
    display: flex;
    flex-wrap: wrap;
    justify-content: space-around;

.subscription {
    width: 31.33%;
    padding: 1em;
    margin: 1%;
    border: 1px solid #999;
    border-radius: 0.75em;
    box-shadow: inset 0 0 1em rgba( 0, 0, 0, 0.4 ), 
         0.25em 0.25em 0.25em rgba( 0, 0, 0, 0.4 );
    box-sizing: border-box;
    background-color: #fff;

.subscription span {
    display: block;
    font-size: 1.5em;
    font-weight: bold;
    text-align: center;

#container .subscription:nth-of-type(2) {
    background-color: #eef;

#container .subscription:nth-of-type(3) {
    background-color: #fee;

.subscription span:last-of-type {
    margin-left: 2em;
    font-size: 1em;
    text-align: left;

.subscription p {
    margin-left: 2em;

@media ( max-width: 52em ) {
.subscription {
    width: 48%;

@media ( max-width: 34em ) {
.subscription {
    width: 98%;
