Is this Legit? on 08/13/2009 18:00:45 MDT Print View

Is this a legitimate offer? My browser says there's a security problem with their site certificate. Could this be a scam?

OK, thanks for the BBB rating etc.

But why the heck is their security certificate for another site? Have they been hacked?

Confused in California,

Amazon has a deal for $5.00 for Backpacker Mag on 08/17/2009 15:17:54 MDT Print View

Amazon has a deal for $5.00. Their site has a valid security certificate. I'll pay $1.00 to be sure. :)

Anyone Receive Their First Issue Yet? on 08/18/2009 17:45:43 MDT Print View

I am still waiting, how about you? Although they did say it could take up to 13 weeks to get your first issue.

Im going to wait until the final week that I was told that should get it. If I dont get it by then, Im going to ask for a prompt refund regardless of whether or not I am told it is on its way or some crap like that. While $4 isnt a lot to get suckered out of, its the principle =)

Happens - security certificates get reused but not always correctly. Rarely means they have been hacked. Just means sloppy admin.

When did you subscribe so I can cross-reference when I subscribed and make an estimation on when I should get mine. Thanks

auto-renewal BP magazine on 08/31/2009 09:29:06 MDT Print View

I'm not a huge fan of BP mag but jumped on the good deal for the odd good article/issue. I was concerned about auto-renewal, so I emailed Deekins and got the following response. Seems like a great deal..... Mike

Thanks for the order. We understand your concern about having your subscription automatically renewed. It is a very valid concern. But rest assured that is run by just a few consumers who hate to have things automatically renewed just like you.

Therefore your order will never be renewed unless you do it. Take a look at our FAQs at the link below to see our actual answer.

Automatic Renewal?

Good News... on 09/02/2009 02:20:42 MDT Print View

So there I was thinking, if Mike got his first issue and you (Alli) did as well, heck then why haven't I received mine if I subscribed to the magazine on the same day you (Alli) did? Then I got to thinking, well I got my Gossamer Gear LightTrek 4 poles today and I was so excited about those that I didnt even bother to look at what appeared to be junk mail sticking out of my know the kind...where it looks like you have a box full of ads and local store coupons waiting for you. Then a lightbulb went off in my head...wait a second...I think I did see a magazine sticking out of my box. And low and behold, what I originally thought to be a Kohls Catolog really ended up turing out to be my Backpacker Magazine! While I havent had the time to really look it over yet, perhaps we could use this post to act as a Magazine Club. You a book club...but instead a magazine clubs that discusses what you thought was interesting in each issue? Then again maybe not :/ I dont know what you all think of that, but I got a kick out of thinking about doing something like that. Now for the true test! Will we get more than one issue or will this be our last one? =) Ill be in touch :P
