magsforless.com ripped me off

Filed under: Main — Ryan Jones @ 9:05 pm

We’ve all seen those ads online for cheap magazines right? About 17 months ago I saw them myself.. and decided that the offer was too good to be true. Guess what, it was. It’s been 17 months since magsforless.com charged me $15 for subscriptions and I’ve yet to receive one single magazine.

I have, however, received a couple of emails from them. The first one asked me if I was satisfied with my subscription and wanted to extend it.

I replied that I haven’t received it and was contacted by somebody from the company. She said there was an error and that she resubmitted my subscription. She also gave me 15% off of my next order.

Sadly, it’s been 4 months now and I still haven’t received a magazine. In fact, the site now shows no mention of my order whatsoever and emailing the woman who contacted me sends back a reply of ” This is not a monitored email box.”

Has anybody else been burned by this company?


  1. I’ve gotten a couple of dirt cheap subscriptions off of eBay with no problems… even if they have a separate website, the reputation functionality there protects you.

  2. you are not the only one to get ripped off by this site. I had one subscription fulfilled, but 4 others were not.

  3. Definitely a rip-off. I received none of my 4 subscriptions.

  5. I have also been ripped off by magsforless. Order was placed in Dec. 2006 — nothing received. No response to complaints. I lost $37.50. Do not do business with this company.
