Magazines.com Complaint - Magazines.com tricks consumers by automatically renewing magazines without their authorization
Subscriber beware: Magazines.com tricks consumers by automatically renewing magazines without previous authorization. This wastes consumers' time and often money. Last year I ordered magazines as a gift for a friend. I didn't know that Magazines.com automatically renewed my subscription until the charge came through on my credit card. The only way to reverse the charge was to have my bank block the company.
When ordering the magazine, I did not at any point to my knowledge authorize a renewal. While this may be stated in fine print, it is not information that is easily accessible to consumers. I can see no other reason for this practice than to trick people into spending more money. This is a unethical, unsustainable business practice. Please save yourself time and money by ordering magazines through more reliable outlets.
