16 issues? How many do you usually stack? I stop at 10. :)
It used to be 2-3, but now I go for around 5-6, but if it's a harder to get mag, I go for more.

This one came from different sources; Spirit, VM, RG, FBM, etc, and I originally lost count, but I'm still missing some.

I don't like going beyond 2030, so I'm going to give away the balance to co-workers.

Most of the RewardSurvey magazines now have a "new subscribers only - no gift" banner across them. I guess that means that renewing/stacking will no longer be possible.
Remember each different USA address you use is a 'new'subscriber' to them...I doubt RewardSurvey keeps track of what your 'home' address is.

That won't stop a true RFDer! ;)

In other news; this is what happens when you take too long stacking subs before they hit Canada! :facepalm:

*I should mention that it's not entirely my fault because they take forever getting around to each request!

How do you come up with so many different USA addresses? I usually pick a business street in a city and use various numbers - ex 1000 james st, 1010 james st, 1034 James...
if the address doesn't exist, some publishers mark the sub as undeliverable and I may phone in after I update the address to mine to make sure the 'undeliverable' setting is taken off...

I used to take a stroll down the street with Google's street view, and jot down various addresses,
but now I resorted to making up any address on several streets I previously used.

I recently received quite a few email notices saying my account has been suspended until I update my address,
but once updated to Canada, they're automatically reinstated.

Seems like my stroll down the street was picking some buildings that require a unit number appended to the address. (which I omitted)

Ok - we do the same thing basically - I should have said 'make up various addresses on that block' instead of 'use various addresses...'. :D

for me, I zoomed into google maps until I saw a small city, then googled the public library for that city. That way if i forget to change the address for any magazine, they may make some use out of the mag.

Just an fYI about the Magazine Gold mag offer -- I was able to find all the subs I requested at the various magazine websites this weekend(mags such as Dogster, House Beautiful, EW,)...I was a little late submitting them so you all probably found them sooner...

I was able to change all mine from magazine gold except for dogster. Is this the site you used to change your address? https://bowtie.magazine-services.net/CS/login.aspx

No - I went here for Dogster (formerly Dog Fancy) - https://w1.buysub.com/pubs/B6/CFY/login ... g_code=DFY

I used to sub to Cat Fancy but had it changed (I have no cats and wanted Dog Fancy and finally was able to get it converted) - here's the Catster address as well - https://w1.buysub.com/pubs/B6/CFY/login ... g_code=CFY

One of my subs kicked in on the 4th, and the other one today. (I was getting a little worried because that's the one they denied me for requesting several at once)

For mine for magazine gold, I signed up for the magazines on May 20th, and was able to change all the addresses between May 26-29th (except dogster which I had the wrong link). Was really fast for me.
