I just renewed 2 gift subscriptions.  I guess I'll have to wait to see how that's going to be handled.

That just shows how low the "hobby" is going. Your right, SAD! On the other side of it, how many times can you print, "How to install carpet in your 92 GT?"
Personally I think when it became nothing but a FOX mag, it lost my interest.

I was a subscriber from the 1980's until the 1990's and kind of got sick of it, it also went down when Peterson bought Super Ford and others, to gain a control of great publications as Super Ford was my favorite along with Mustang Monthy....

Our newspaper is so bad these days that it literally takes 5 minutes to go through and read. Not to mention you can go to a Barns & Nobel and read any magazine you want and not buy it. Many factors...

If it turns out like SuperFord, you can kiss the funds goodbye.    :(

That's really BS.  They hit me up just 2 weeks ago for a 3 year subscription!  You tell me they didn't know this was coming.  What crap.  They even tried to have me add an extra 2 years to that!

I would call my credit card up and fight the charge, they are not giving you what you paid for.

Same here.  No, I don't want any of the three they will still print and mail.  I'm thinking they should double our subscription lengths due to it being "digital".

I just called TEN Publishing (number noted in an email sent to me) about my MM subscription and asked for a refund.   No problem, they say, should be there within  14 days.    So far,
so good.
