Hearst / magazine subscription

amknc on Feb 14, 2019

I want to write and just say how disgusted I am with this company (elle decor is the actual subscription). My renewal card has a phone # to call and 'cancel at any time'. And apparently they want to sell me everything under the sun!! Hearing aids, cell phone service, cable service...

Great American Readers / fraudulent business practices; misrepresentation of the cost of the service; refusal to cancel order

Dmills1 on Feb 12, 2019

I have attempted to resolve this issue with great american readers but they have only continued to harass me for payment for magazines that they would not cancel. I took care of this myself and cancelled directly with the magazine publishers. Now I have received a letter from interstate...

Lighthouse Media Solutions / south shore living magazine

Linda Burgh on Feb 7, 2019

Regarding 02/03/2019-There were no Sunday comics this morning and no TV listing. Did I miss some info regarding the new format? Acct. #[protected] The reorganization of the arts, entertainment and books is fine but is it at the expense of diminished coverage in the Sunday edition? If this i...

NHKimSmith on Jan 28, 2019

I purchased a one-year subscription in 2016 or 2017 and paid by check (purposely so that there would be no question about whether I had ordered a perpetual subscription). The magazine wasn't what I expected, and I didn't intend to renew. After my one year was up, they started to send me...
