For the cheapest subscription to this magazine, go to and you can get a year (7 issues) for $10. Don't ever use the little cards in the magazine to subscribe or renew. The first time you do it, you may get a duplicate copy but you can fix that by contacting them and they will give you credit for the duplicate

I was planning to renew my subscription but when I saw the $4 postage and handling charge in addition to the advertised price, I threw it in the trash. Your advertising is not honest.

Couldn't get into the customer service page to re-subscribe. The first thing I do when I get a magazine is throw away the label. I tried to ender the WDM number from a voucher but it wouldn't take it. No chat app. No way to email customer service. I refuse to submit to a call center. I give up.

I too am 1 of the many that can not register for the Over-the-top shop sweepstakes. It keeps telling me that I have already registered for that day. I think I would have remembered if I had done that. This has been going on for the last 3 days. This is very discouraging. I don't think I will be renewing my subscription when it is time for renewal.

In the March 2013 issue, a plan for a sofa server was indicated would be in the May issue. I never received the May issue and when I contacted you on 5/6 you said it was no longer available and you were going to extend my subscription to compensate. I can't believe you don't have a copy of that issue to send me. You would gladly charge me $4.95 to send me the plan but I don't think so.

I just received a promo offer for increasing my subscription period. I would like to know not only the date (JUne 14)that my current subscription expires but also the year. thanks also I find the attempts at the end of this "contact session" to get me to view advertising material intrusive. I may have to rethink subscribing to your magazine or group of magazines if I can't get my account serviced without an attack from madison avenue.
