In Janaury I sent for a subscription to Southern Living magazine. I sent my check to pay for the subscription at the same time I sent the original subscription card. I had forgotten all about it. Two weeks ago I remembered and wondered where my magazines were.
I checked my bank statement to see if the check I sent had been canceled. It had. I called them and they did not have any information about my subscription.
I have always thought it best not to pay for a magazine subscription until they send you an invoice. That way you are sure they have you in their system. The first time I deviated from my own rule, and sure enough, they messed it up! Now I wonder if I sent any other checks with an original subscription card! I get so many mags I can't really keep track of them all.
Southern Living's customer service rep was very nice about it and took me at my word and started my subscription. I received an issue today.
Maybe tomorrow I will look through my checkbook to see if I've paid for any other magazines I am not getting. I usually highlight all the mag payments in yellow so they are easy to find.
