Today I received an email to reniew at $39+ for 2 years and I realized that I was shorted. I called both 800 telephone numbers listed in the publication and was told that my subscription was only for 1 year. I advised each of the two subscription specialist that this did not make any sense considering current 2 year subscription cost. I was told by one to jump on the promotion promptly as this is a deal that will not last and by other to fax him a copy of the little stub that came with the old promo for review and correction. Sooo unless I am willing to look through my 2012 IRS folders to take a chance that it is there I am out of luck. Wondering if I am the only one so lucky?

I have had this happen with numerous magazines recently. I have decided that at this time I will be forgoing any further subscriptions to any of them. Recently it was Field and Stream. Sent me a nice almost nasty, letter demanding payment for a subscription I ordered. Checked my bank records, sure enough they had been payed over a month prior. they of course said they had not. recieved two magazines of that sub.
