Subscription department is the worst part of BYO. I usually don't pay until I receive the first issue of a magazine. They on the other hand were diametrically opposed to my payment policies and canceled my subscription before I ever saw issue one. I eventually straightened it out with them (too much effort for sure), and decided to never send them another dollar.
When I first subscribed a couple years ago, it was around Christmas time and it seems like it took a couple months for my first issue to arrive. There are only 10 issues a year so the gap between issues is a bit more than for regular monthly mags.
