Lol at the Forbes' "cover price." $104 for eight issues. Are they really selling for $13/issue at the stand?
That's too bad that happened to you.

I've been using DM for over 10 years and I've always received all the issues on my subscriptions.

Once a subscription starts, if I have any questions or concerns, I contact customer service at the specific magazine directly (not DM). Did you try reaching out to Consumer Reports Customer Service?

When did your Consumer Reports Magazine stop coming? If it was recently, you might want to check your subscription account online at the CR website.

Subscriber Account Login at Consumer Reports Magazine
https://secure.consumerreports.or...tification
You would order to renew your subscription. You can choose "renewal" from the dropdown on the DM website while you are ordering (although DM doesn't share this information with the publisher).

What is most important, is that you need to use the EXACT same name/addy that is on your current mailing label. When the publisher receives your order from DM, they can match it up with your current account.

If you're not sure how your information appears on your label, you can log into your subscriber account at The Economist, to verify your information.

Subscriber Account Login at The Economist
https://myaccount.economist.com/s/contact-us

After you've ordered, keep an eye on your label (or log into your account) and you'll see your expiration date update, to reflect the new subscription. For example if you current sub expires DEC21, you'll see it update to DEC22.

If, for some reason, you start to receive duplicates. You just need to get in touch with customer service at The Economist (not DM). You provide the account numbers from the labels, and they will merge the accounts. Live Chat at The Economist is particularly helpful, I've found.

Doesn't look like discount mags offer print only for the economist.

I didn't like how the discountlock is subject to exclusions last time I subscribed.

I lost my subscription price on Wired and Forbes and just recently took up this offer!

Thanks Op!

Discount mags customer support is not good.

I used to get upwards of 11 subscriptions from them (various titles) and have dropped them one by one because none of the paid subscriptions actually last the whole term for me.
The last straw was when my Consumer Reports subscription stopped coming in the mail and I still have 3 paid months left on the subscription.

After someone finally returned a email, their answer was that they are a 3rd party provider and are not responsible for when subscriptions begin and end.
I replied that as a 1st party payer, this was a lame excuse for not covering the subscriptions that I paid for, and that as a 1st party payer, I will no longer be paying them for their service.

I remember when dirt cheap subscriptions for New Yorker and Economist, etc., were being sold on Ebay. Anyone know what happened to that? Maybe an internal employee or maybe stolen codes?

I have been a DM customer for about 6 years now.
Over the last 3 years I've been noticing some wonky things going on with my subscriptions.

Honestly, it never occurred to me to contact the magazines directly. I always thought that DM took my money, they should service the subscriptions?

Thanks for the link. I guess contacting them direct is next in line.

Yeah, no, they (DM) are just the middle man. They just process the order.

Any questions about your subscription, once it starts, should be directed to the publisher. They are in the best position to solve any concerns.

Give it a shot…you've got nothing to lose.

What do you mean? You cannot have DM put your order in at a later date - they don't have that capability.

But if you mean you want to extend a current subscription, yes, you can order and have it extend a current subscription.
