I am looking to show a custom message to customers who subscribed to newsletter on the checkout confirmation page on our magento site but I am not able to check the subscription status using the following method in success.phtml:

$customerSession = Mage::getSingleton("customer/session");
$email = $customerSession->getCustomer()->getEmail();
$subscriber = Mage::getModel('newsletter/subscriber')->loadByEmail($email);

$status = $subscriber->isSubscribed();  // status should be  1 if subscribed.

Can anyone help?
