DiscountMags.com Safe to Order?
I've received free magazines from DiscountMags.com so I know the site will deliver, but has anyone ever ordered magazines from the main page? I'd just hate to provide my CC# to a less-than-legit company. Comments, advice?
Yes, it is safe to order from them. I've done it 4-5 different times, and as Nuala'sMom mentioned, even though the subs take a little too long to begin, once they do, they have always been delivered to me.
To wrap up what was in the thread after numerous calls and emails with Dan he never came though. And since I paid via PayPal and they have a limit to the time after which you cannot file a complaint, I got screwed.
What is funny is that I ordered in Febuary and FINALLY got this email from Dan May 23rd:
I apologize about that. Your order was actually processed on May 12th, 2005. I apologize so much for the extremely long delay. Estimated delivery date of your first issue is in July. I'm sure Wired will have you on file very soon if they don't have you on file right now.
If you want, I can offer you a free 1-year subscription to any magazine listed on our site right now.
It took almost four months to submit the subscription?!? And guess what, it still isn't on file with Wired!!
And that line about a free sub? I sent a "sure why not" email back on that and got, drumroll.... NO REPLY
Thanks HJM. I've tried the phone a few times but don't do much IM. I've done a lot of email and even PM'd back and fourth here on SD. I'd be happy to get my paid sub much less my free one. But as I told Dan, I am not holding my breath.
And while I am not trying to be anti-DiscountMags, I thought it may be good for some people to know that there is a chance you will be ripped off.
I ordered and never got the product. I contacted Dan and he assured me he would fix. It never happened either. Just poor customer service that leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
