DiscountMags.com Safe to Order?

Thread Details

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?

I have ordered from there and though it typically takes a rather long time for the subs to begin, they do come through.

zerooffline,

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.

Thanks guys. Just making sure because a week ago I bought a Men's Health issue from the store and it was about the same price they're offering for a full years subscription.

Glad you asked!!

See my thread here:

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:

Hi Tom,

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.

Regards,
Dan
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

try IMing Dan on AIM, or PM him here on SD, or call his cell phone... all of that information has been posted before

since the beginning he has readily admitted that email response is slower than most people would like / expect, and to try the other methods

I hope you get that free year!

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.
