Subscription number is [protected]. I made a payment on 10/9/18 but haven't received any magazines yet. In the future I should use my credit card to make the payment because then I could at least report it as a fraudulent charge since I did not receive what I paid for. If I do not hear from...

cbullock89 on Dec 3, 2018

Received a call from a very pushy sales guy about a free h&s magazine. This is sometime ago and the details are hazy - as you can tell this is not something that I wanted. Only agreed to get him off the phone. Thought nothing of it and didnt even read the magazines. A few weeks later I...

GCoke on Dec 1, 2018

In November of 2018, I received a Good Housekeeping magazine with a bill for $7.97. I ignored it thinking it was just outreach on the company's part as I never ordered this magazine. First, I don't read magazines and second, I'm not a 90 year old woman who would subscribe to Good...

I entered 2 random sweepstakes and later that day got an email for a a year subscription for $7.97. I did not order the magazine, I'll be giving it back to the mail carrier. This is quite deceptive on the part of the company. I don't have any more "characters" to add. Thi...
