How about our delivery policy

Our prices included the shipping and handling cost. All magazines ordered by you will be sent to the person and address as noted in your order. Although we send out your orders immediately, it usually takes between 6-12 weeks for your subscription to start. This time frame is a general industry standard. The primary reason is that publishers print the address labels up to 2 issues in advance and it takes a few weeks to be processed in their computer system. Our experience indicates that most subscriptions start within 8-9 weeks. If you purchase a gift, cards are sent out immediately notifying the recipient when to expect their first issue, along with information on how to contact our customer service representatives.

The payment will be posted to your credit card account the same day the payment is approved. Your magazines start from the first issue, guaranteeing that you will receive all your issues.

Please advise immediately, preferably in writing, of any changes of address and allow 60-90 days for the change to take effect.

The company contacts unsepected low income families stating that their trial account has expired and in some cases disguises themselves as the distributors of your current magazine subscription.

The representative offers to close down your account by simply verifying your address and then your membership number. Unfortunately you do not have a membership number and in turn are requested to verify your account or credit card numbers in order to close down the account. You are then transfered to a slick and quick speaking verification officer who pulls up a recording in which a contract is made. The unsuspecting person believes that he is simply reciting the previous contract (non-existant). An 8-digit receipt number is issued which simply verifies that you will recieve 4 Magazines (Time Magazine) for 60 Months (5 Years).
