Default Subiesport- the $15.71 per issue mag

Since I only received one issue when I subscribed in late February, 2008 (and never received the latest DVD issue), I sent a detailed e-mail to them about two months ago asking for a refund. Explained my frustration with them, but never heard back from them. Well, last week I get a return e-mail saying they will process my refund. Guess what? I received a check from them for a little over $14, even though I paid $29.99 and only received one issue.

At least I got SOME money back from them, but come on, $15.71 for the one stupid issue I received from them in March of 2008??? I'm contemplating filling a complaint with their local better business bureau, just so their publishing company gets a little 'mud' on their record.

Good by Subiesport, and good riddance!

A little update: I was wrong on the refund amount. They only sent me $13.13, so my lone issue cost me $16.86. One of the most expensive magazines i've ever purchased!

So today I cashed the check, and there was a Breast Cancer Awareness booth at a store close to my office, so I donated their measly $13.13 to a great cause.

Be glad you got anything back. I'm surprised they're not out of business yet. ...just a matter of time

Meh...I have lost all hope and faith in this magazine and for $16.86 an issue I would rather fork $11 for the costly Euro magazine EVO every month instead and have a vastly superior publication.

On a good note breast cancer awareness got some support! Woo-woo!

How SubieSport can still claim to put out 6 issues every year is beyond me.

Ya, I only got a couple magazines as well, which I dont think they can be considered magazines when it has very few pages..

Owell. Not even worth my time for such a feeble magazine that gets sent out every 2 months

At least import tuner, modified mag, and all the other car subscriptions get sent on time, each month, and cheaper...

Man I wonder why Ricochet isn't in here making up excuses as to why you haven't received your issues yet? I guess he ran out.

Thank God GRM took over.
