As wood workers most or all of us subscribe to certain publications. These Magazines are informative, the advertisers are the companies we want to do business with, and as consumers we gather a wealth of useful information from these publications. But their promotion and circulation departments scam the hell out of us.
Every lumber jock with a subscription to a wood magazine should take July 4th, 2011, to tell these BUTT HEADS that we do not want to receive a renewal notice 3 weeks after we bought a 3 year subscription. RENEW NOW-
GIFT SUBSCRIPTIONS- DON’T LET YOUR SUBSCRIPTION RUN OUT YOU ONLY HAVE 375 ISSUES LEFT TO GO!!!
Not to mention the great embarrassment when half the magazine renewal notices drop into the libraries return slot
in the bathroom. Promoting your product is great….but please stop the scamming all you wood magazines. One or two renewal notices a month before the subscription has ended is enough.
I don’t like the word scam…but every woodworkers magazine I have subscribed to in the last 7 years uses techniques that lead me to believe that my subscription will come to an end in 30 days or less…It’s a bunch of crap, I hope you’ll let them know that.
