This review of TopMags.com is by no means an advertisement or promotion of the company. The reason behind this article is to give an overview of my experience with this online service.
It started when I received a newsletter with an offer for a 1 year subscription for my favourite magazine Wired for a crazy low price of $4.50. I normally never purchase magazines or newspapers except when I am inside the airport waiting for a flight. With this really low price I immediately placed an order for not 1 magazine but for 3 different titles on the TopMags.com website.
I fully appreciated that I would have to wait several weeks to receive anything but when 4 weeks past and I hadn’t receive anything, then 5 weeks , then 6 weeks and finally 7 weeks when I decided to investigate the website. I discovered that the only websites promoting the service were affiliates (paid to promote sales), there were zero reviews of the site and the only contact method on the website was a contact form which received no response. With
With this I was highly dubious that the website was trustworthy and highly sceptical at the service, hence why I cancelled the order with PayPal 10 weeks after the first order. It was May 12 and I placed an order April 1st.
Once again, this is not written to promote the service but if you are reading and have yet to receive your magazines then my advice would be to wait a little longer. I ordered in April and have received the June editions, with this I hope to receive the magazine consistently for the next 12 months. I will update this article to reflect this.
