I signed up online for $1,000 Wal-Mart gift card. I got phone calls from Tucson, Arizona and Dallas, Texas. Both saying that I could order six months of magazines for $39.00 and get two $500 Wal-Mart gift cards just for participating. I would also get a $250 online gift card within 24 hours of my purchase. I talked to three different customer service reps all guaranteeing the same offer. I gave them information on my cell #, home address, debit card #, and spouses name. I did not receive the online gift card and I have continually gotten telemarketers calling my cell phone ever since!

  • I've been going through this for five years. Do not make the same mistake I made! I was young and stupid. Anyway, they tried to get me again a few weeks ago but I wasn't having it. When they tell you that you can't cancel, they are lying. I FINALLY was able to cancel everything. I recommend going through all the publishers first (even if they don't have you on record) and then calling this number: 1-800-589-7998. Make sure you're speaking to the customer service people and NOT the sales department. There IS a difference. I got my money back as well. Make sure when you cancel, you get it in writing, just to be on the safe side. There is a way out! I am posting this so everyone else can see. I hope this reaches you and can get out of this mess too!
