Q. Why are your prices so much cheaper than everywhere else?
A. The high volume of magazine subscriptions that we sell allows us to negotiate special discounted prices with the various publishers. There are no catches to our prices...all you pay is the price that is listed. You will get your subscription and at the lowest price. That's our guarantee.
Q. How long will it take for me to receive my order?
A. On average, you will receive your first issue 4 to 12 weeks after you place your order. Generally, weekly subscriptions will take about 4 to 10 weeks to start and monthly subscriptions will take 6 to 12 weeks to start. There is very little difference in the processing time whether one orders directly through the publisher, or through a subscription reseller, like MagazineBargains.com. This time period applies to both new subscriptions and renewals.
Q. Can I renew a subscription I am already getting?
A. Absolutely. You will see the option to renew on the magazine page. Please note that the publisher processes renewals within a similar timeframe as mentioned above (4 to 12 weeks).
Q. If I am renewing a subscription should I also tell you when my current subscription ends or the subscription number?
A. No need to do that. The publishers will already have you in their database. All you need to do is ensure that the name and address you give us is the same as the name and address of your current subscription. The publisher will take care of the rest.
Q. What is your refund policy?
A. We offer our customers a 90 day money back guarantee. If you are unsatisfied within 90 days of placing your order, then contact us and we will issue you a refund for any remaining issues. We guarantee that you will get your subscription within a maximum of 12 weeks, but on average, all it takes is 4 to 8 weeks.
Q. Can I send a subscription as a gift?
A. Yes. Just enter the recipient's information in the 'Shipping' section. On the receipt page or order status page, you may also order a free gift E-card to be sent as well.
Q. How do I send different magazines to different addresses?
A. To send subscriptions to multiple addresses, please list the additional addresses in the comments section of the checkout page. Please be sure to note which magazines are going to each of the shipping addresses.
Q. What happens after my order is placed? How is it shipped?
A. After you place your order, you will receive a confirmation e-mail from us. Soon afterwards we will submit your order to the publisher through our clearinghouses. The publisher will then add your information to their database and will ship the magazine to you via the U.S. Postal Service. After you receive your first issue, your account can be handled by the publisher, and MagazineBargains.com. MagazineBargains.com has access to your account. As mentioned above this whole process takes 4-8 weeks, on average.
Q. Are there any additional charges such as shipping & handling?
