Re: Tracking lateness

Looks like my #195 arrived to me here in the states this past Friday the 5th, so I'm still averaging about 3 weeks most months. It boggles my mind how anyone in Europe gets these issues after me, but I guess truth is often stranger than fiction.

Re: Tracking lateness

Well, here in Vegas, my issue #191 arrived this past Saturday, which was about 5 weeks after #190. And issue #192 arrived yesterday, which makes this issue one of the fastest ever in regards to shipping times. Possibly one of very few to arrive within Future's would be 14 day arrival window, so hope...

Is this a joke? I would have needed to contact them for EVERY issue I received in the last 5 years.
LOL, I know right? I can count on one hand the number of issues I've ever gotten within 14 days, and I probably wouldn't need all the fingers, and that's going back maybe a decade or more.

Re: Tracking lateness

Issue #190 arrived to me yesterday here in the states, Las Vegas to be exact. So it took about 25 days or so since #189 had arrived, so not as good as it used to be, but still in the OK range.

Re: Tracking lateness

I'm still waiting for issue 189 (and 190) in Germany as well. My hope was to let the subscription run out and just buy the single issues through the webstore. But if these run late as well this is not really helping. At least I could pay these through Paypal and always open a "non-receipt"-conflict...

Re: Tracking lateness

(BTW, I got Edge (#329) today too.) (W? T? F? I just read EDGE when I find it in my mailbox, so I'm not paying _that_ close attention, but today #328 arrived. After #329. Wrong order, you know. Shipped via a re-mailer in Praha. How is it even possible to mess up something so bad Future?) Yeah, at t...

I just got a letter with an offer to resubscribe. But the offer had expired before I even got the letter.
Yeah, that sounds about right! LOL

Re: Tracking lateness

Also, does anyone know of a deal to re-subscribe to RG for around $60USD? I used to resub each year by using the code CLASSIC, but since Future took over they removed the ability to do this. I can't swing the $100+ they are asking of me. So unless I can't getn To my knowledge, that "CLASSIC" code d...

Re: Tracking lateness

Well, #188 & 189 arrived today, and #188 is in just about the best shape of any issue I've received in the last year. I don't know where it's been for almost 2 months,but glad to see it arrived safe and sound, as it's also one of the best subscriber covers as well.

Re: Tracking lateness

Yeah, nothing for me yesterday, but I'm near the west coast, so it normally takes a few days for me to get anything past the midwest or east coast subscribers. No chance my replacement arrives this soon, as it just shipped, but it would be cool to get 188 & 189 at the same time. I was really bummed ...

Re: Tracking lateness

An interesting update for me in Atlanta, GA... I requested a replacement copy of #188, which was originally released at the end of November. It was sent on January 9th and arrived January 25th, a bit over two weeks later. Of note is that the replacement did not have the subscriber cover, just the n...

Re: Tracking lateness

Yeah, my last issue(#187) arrived back on November 27, and I averaged about every 3 weeks for the year, so #188 is for sure behind. It was holiday time when it was shipped, and this can cause rather fast deliveries, or beyond slow ones. I guess it's time to contact the powers that be for a replaceme...

Re: Tracking lateness

And lastly, I whish the subscription and csutomer service departments of Future would invest even a fraction of the energy in actual customer service than they do in their relentless spamming with the "20% off" campaigns they're running pretty much weekly now - right now I'm getting at least one em...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

So I got a reply from the email and it is as follows: 1 - The ink smears is a known problem and they have no magazines available to send a new one out without a smear on the pages somewhere. 2 - The cut to the spine of my other magazine could have been done on the printing machines and they are sen...

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

Yeah, it's physical or bust for me as well, as reading stuff digital is cool and all, as being able to enlarge text is a Godsend, especially for old eyes like my own :wink: Having said publications in my hands, to flip through and collect, is a childhood practice that defines me and I have no plans ...
