I think there’s a magazine subscription scam that a lot of magazines are pulling. Here’s what I’ve found. Ten years ago I bought a magazine subscription for Aaron for his birthday, they never showed up. Last year Wanda wanted a magazine subscription for herself but it was slightly cheaper to send it as a gift so she sent it to me and they didn’t show up. She complained and called their number enough times that they finally mailed her the two issues that were missed and we’ve haven’t seen another issue yet and it’s been more than a few months. Plus she cancelled one of her subscriptions that she just started (didn’t receive any subscriptions yet / but it was new) to start a different magazine subscription, and it’s been a few months without anything been sent to us.
I think magazine companies make a lot of money by forgetting to send you the magazine after you sign up with them. It’s happened to us numerous times.
