Magazines you didn't subscribe to?

Do you ever get random magazines that you never paid for or subscribed to?

My DH has been getting Reader's Digets for months now - no clue why- and the other day a copy of Billboard showed up at our door. Chat Icon
At first I thought the mailmen made a mistake and it was for our neighbor, but nope- it was addressed to DH.

I think I remember getting a year of Fitness magazine that I never asked for either a few years back.

Do they do this to up their circulation numbers for their advertising rates or something?

I just find it odd!

I think that's exactly what they do. It's happened to me in the past. I subscribe to tons of mags and also get offers alll the time for other mags for like $5 a year.

Yes! I've been getting Working Mother for months now, I don't even have kids! My ex-fh used to get Rolling Stone that he never subscribed too, that was good at least.

Re: Magazines you didn't subscribe to?

I got Billboard the other day too. I was getting this really weird magazine called Interview and I called to ask why I was getting it. The company said I was on some list to receive it for free. I told them I didn't want it and to cancel my subscription. They stopped. I may do the same thing if I continue to get Billboard. I would rather get a free magazine subscription to a magazine I actually like.

We got New York Magazine for about 6 months, no idea why. Then we got lots and lots of mail asking us to "renew." I thought it was a marketing campaign, and not a bad one either - when the 6 months were up, I missed it and seriously considered "renewing."

Yes! I got Newsweek for quite awhile and never subscribed. I found it very strange. This went on for about a year.

Re: Magazines you didn't subscribe to?

When I was in a wedding party, I registered on The Knot to get ideas, and a few months later, their 'couples' mag The Nest started arriving in my mailbox.

I started getting Rolling Stone recently and called their subscription line to ask why/how that happened...turns out, they gave me a free one-year subscription after buying some concert tickets.

Weird thing is they knew my current address (only since July 2008) but used my maiden name (married since 2003).

Re: Magazines you didn't subscribe to?

I also got Billboard magazine the other day! I figured it must be like a free trial or something. I subscribe to a couple of home related magazines, so they must have gotten my name off some list.
