Two years or so ago, my mother ordered Family Fun magazine for me because she thought I'd like it (being a teacher)... she said it was a 1-year subscription for $15 and then I could renew if I wanted. I DID NOT want to renew, so I ignored all of the stuff that came in the mail. Then I get a yellow slip of paper saying that they had "renewed it for me in good faith", so now I HAD to pay the bill??!! or they would go on my credit report. So I paid the da-- bill just to get it out of the way, and now they've done it again?! I REFUSE to pay... on the bill it said "to cancel, go to..." and listed a website, and I went there, and there is NO PLACE to cancel the subscription. The closest I got was to "contact" the company and tell them that I wanted to cancel, and it said I'd get a response shortly... it's about 8 or so hours later, NO RESPONSE. I will NOT pay, I don't want the magazine, and I strongly advice people to stay away because apparently they can't take a hint. If I didn't pay my bill and didn't renew my subscription through the mail, despite 5-6 "final notices", why the hell would I want it automatically renewed?! after ignoring everything in the mail for the last 3 months or so.
Young girl came to our door stating she was a college student trying to collect points to earn vacation money. never got the magazine. this was a $49 purchase w/ nothing in return but the cahed check.
I bought this magazine for my 2 children's families three years ago. Now they just sent me a thanks for your renewal message yearly and I have never renewed the magazine, bu they have my credit card number.
