Magazine Subscriptions

Magazine Subscriptions

Magazines subscriptions are not packages.

We cannot guarantee magazine subscriptions which are mailed by the publishers.

Publishers do not send the last issue printed. They have already allocated the next issue.

Your gift subscription will most likely begin issue after next.

More notes on subscriptions can be found at the bottom of this page. 

We do offer a Back Issue Magazines which will be mailed USPS

from our bookstore in one to two days.

    Contact Us. Immediately if your inmate is moved.

    The sooner address correction information gets to the publisher, the better.

    This information comes directly from the source from which Paperback Swap N Shop purchases these subscriptions.

    How long will it take for the first subscription to arrive?
    The industry standard is 30 to 120 days. Most of the publishers use mail processing centers which tabulate and processes the millions of orders received, and they perform the actual sorting and mailing. That takes a lot of time. Additionally, most magazines are printed months in advance, and each printing is pre-allocated only to the amount of subscribers at the actual time of printing. Thus, an order received in January might actually commence in April. There is very little difference in the processing time whether one orders directly through the publisher, or through a subscription reseller such as this, or any other website.  As a general rule, daily subscriptions take 4 to 8 weeks to start, weekly subscriptions take 6 to 10 weeks to start, monthly subscriptions take 8 to 12 weeks to start and bi-monthly and quarterly subscriptions take 10 to 16 weeks to start.

    Do you offer back issues to magazines?
    You can see our selection of back issue magazines here.

    What is your refund policy?
    We cannot refund money for magazine subscriptions Since we remit money to a subscription agency for those orders and cannot get it back after the order is placed, we are unable to refund the subscription. If an error occurs by our actions, we will gladly refund or credit your cost.
