    My husband did the same thing. I just typed in the Billing address and searched it. I went to​FAQ.jsp?lsid=... - which is Country Living magazines customer service. I punched in my husband's account number and all the info came up. Then on the left hand side of the screen it said cancel subscription and I did that. we will see what happens. Good luck.

    HGTV Magazine has problems, also. I sent in my payment for a subscription and kept getting nasty e-mails that I was ignoring their requests for payment. I sent in a copy of the check to them and still kept getting nasty e-mails. When I checked, it turned out that the company had already cashed the check. It appears that everyone has received the premier issue, but HGTV is not following up on their subscription requests. No further issues have come out. I know that HGTV is well known, but I am beginning to wonder about them.

    To the Folks at the Hearst Empire:

    I am interested to know why paid subscribers, like myself, were not notified that there would be no April/May issue and that June/July is "scheduled to be sent "Mid May".

    I bought and paid for a subscription for myself and another for my Mom. A "reasonable person" would presume a February/March issue is followed by an April/May issue.

    You have our e-mail addresses. Why request our e-mail if you can't use it to inform your customers of a delay. You use it for a lot of other things.

    Now, after an hour of online searching, I have read that 3 more issues are "scheduled" for 2012. (NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire -03/19/12).

    So, can I expect?
    1. Aug/Sept issue sent the end of July,
    2. October/Nov issue sent the end of September and
    3. Dec/Jan issue sent the end of November

    If not, just say it is a quartly magazine and give yourselves the extra 30 days.
