Thread Details

About ten months ago I got a subscription to a magazine from Reward Survey.

I'd like to add a second year to my subscription. What happens if I pick the same magazine I already get, and use the same address? Will it start a second concurrent subscription or will it add time to the one I currently have?

Thanks

Unless otherwise as 'new subscriptions only' the answer is yes.

This happens to me all the time and NORMALLY, I just call the number in the magazine, tell them I messed up and they will add the two together and extend the renewal date.

I have found that USUALLY when I order a free one off various sites that require surveys, if I back up and submit the final page several times, I end up with that many more years. I think my Better Homes and Gardens expires in 2021. I might expire before some of my subscriptions.

It does happen that certain companies can't, or won't, fix it, but that is rare.

Wow, does the back up trick work on rewardsurvery.com?

The answer is yes to which question I asked? Confused

They will stack. I have Cigar Aficionado through 2018 through Reward Survey.

I usually do indeed use the same name/addy that is on my current mailing label when I went to extend the expiration date on a current subscription. If you don't, you run into the possibility of receiving duplicates.

If, by some chance, despite using the same name/addy when ordering, you still receive duplicates. It's easily solved. Personally, I just log into one of the subscription accts at the specific magazine website and send a message to customer service at the magazine, explaining I'm receiving duplicates and they will merge the two accounts. You'll need to provide the acct #'s - they're on the mailing label.

So yes, RS will work to extend a current sub, provided it's not one that indicates "New Subscribers Only".

If it is a subscription that is "New Subscribers Only", what may work, is to sign up for it and alter your name and/or address (for example add Ste # 1 to your address or use John Smith instead of J Smith) so that it's different from your current mailing label. YMMV Then, when you start to receive duplicates, you can merge the two accounts.

If it's a subscription that is "New Subscribers Only/No Gifts", and you already receive that publication via RS, you may want to create a new acct at RS to get around the restriction. YMMV
