I didn't get my issue either. When I wrote them about it, their response was so sorry, now please deal with it.

I say rise up and put the issue on all the forums you can find! Let the world know (and BYO) not to screw with us brewers! It is ridiculous for a company to sell/promote a product and not carry through and then just brush aside what they have done when confronted on it.

Ahoy hoy,
It is just those kinds of issues that drove me to make the decision I did. I just finished letting my BYO subscription expire. Why? I subscribe, not to save money, but to have the issue before it hits the newsstands, and well as not having to manuallly buy it. But, in the year i subscribed, they only got 3 issues to me before it would show up and B&N. In fact there were 3 or 4 times I ended up with 2 copies as it would come a week after B&N got it, and, impatient that I am, I bought it and said hell with subscribing. They have no problems getting their resubscribe mails to me every month, including trying to get me to renew right after i had subscribed, but had yet to receive an issue. All told, that was too much incompetence for me to deal with. I love the mag, but Ill just buy it off the shelf, with zymurgy, and then I know Im not getting a reaming. FYI
A great day to you all!

Heh.

Guess what is for sale on their website?

Brew Your Own: The How-To Homebrew Beer Magazine - 2009 Back Issues

I picked up the December issue and had considered subscribing.

Had.

So if I didn't get my January issue how would I find out if BYO charged me?

So I wasn't the only one.
I noticed a couple weeks ago that I hadn't received my issue and it was past due so i sent them an email. I received the issue yesterday in an envelope in the mail.

Hopefully BYO can resolve the issue. I really enjoy reading the magazines when they arrive. I'm wondering if they are having financial issues? Alot of companies are cutting back on advertising and magazines run on ads.

I got a subscription for Christmas but assumed it was late due to the international shipping... Must send them an email...

Do you think I should point them toward this thread?

Hi,

I received a BYO gift subscription for Christmas. I have not received the January edition and while I realise my subscription may not have activated in time for this issue I am a bit worried about the following thread on HomeBrewTalk.com - Beer, Wine, Mead, & Cider Brewing Discussion Community..

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f14/janu...needed-100884/

This thread suggests that many US subscribers have not received the January edition either.

Hopefully you can clear this up for me.

Thank You,
edit Loweface /edit
