Here are magazine industry guidelines to help estimate how soon you’ll get your first issue of your subscription:

Daily Papers: 2 to 3 weeks
Weekly Magazines: 4 to 6 weeks
Bi-Weekly and Monthly Titles: 6 to 10 weeks
Bi-monthly and Quarterly Subscriptions: 12 to 16 weeks 

There are a few publishers that take longer than the standard start time. If your subscription hasn’t started in the appropriate time frame, or begins with a past issue you have already read, please contact us.

Shipping is always FREE when you order with us!

We ship to all addresses in the United States and its territories. Most magazines can also be delivered to APO/FPO addresses (overseas military). Contact the publisher directly for international delivery.

We send our orders to the publishers within a week of receipt. Industry average start time for a monthly subscription is 6 – 10 weeks. Titles published more frequently than once a month usually start a few weeks sooner. Bi-monthly and quarterly magazines may take a few weeks longer to begin.

Occasionally a publisher will start a subscription with past issues to start the subscription faster. If your subscription starts with issues that are out-of-date or ones that you have already read, please contact us and we will make the necessary adjustments.

If you missed an issue or received damaged, duplicate or back issues, call our toll-free number or email Customer Service. We will work with the publisher to rectify the problem.

We accept orders for inmates; however, delivery can be unreliable. We will attempt to resolve delivery problems, if notified, and we will refund the remaining term of the subscription if you elect to cancel. Some correctional facilities have restrictions on the type of magazines allowed; please check with the penitentiary for their regulations. In addition, they may elect to withhold particular issues without notice to the recipient.


If you are ever unhappy with our service, we will do whatever it takes to make it right - even a 100% cash refund if you choose!

If you find a lower publisher-authorized price for a magazine you've purchased from us, we'll cheerfully refund the difference.

We are proud to be one of the few online magazine agencies that offers a three-payment billing option.
