It depends on which freebie offer you submitted (Valuemags,Mercury, Rewardsurvey) but usually no more than a month. You should call GQ (1-800-289-9330) and ask them to find it. But it may have just not gone thru which is why I usually submit more than once, using different USA addresses.

You should just try again - here's a freebie GQ offer - https://gentlemansbox.com/free-year-of-gq-magazine/

Oh also, GQ is published by Conde Naste which has a terrible customer login system, where you have to create a login account using your email address.
I find it's not very good at finding your account which is why I usually end up phoning to ask for my account number and to ask them to change my address.

Again, I would suggest try calling to see if they can find them. I just signed up twice for GQ thru Rewardsurvey.com on Apr 1 so we'll see if I can find those in the coming weeks.
Hi pathfinder, if I call the customer service departments, what if they ask how I paid or got the subscription?

Thanks.

They won't - they can just look at the screen to know that the sub was paid for by a third party such as Rewardsgold or Rewardsurvey (actual company name is M2 Media).
The Cust Service reps are very helpful - if they can't find it, they will ask how long ago you applied for the subscription - if it's been a long time they may just ask you to contact the third party (ie M2 Media Group) from which you got the sub or if it's only been a couple weeks, they'll tell you to wait a little longer. Or they may find it and you can ask for your account number and if you want, ask them to change the address...

Thanks for the link but this thread is more for Q&A - my signature links below are to the threads to post free print or digital offers and the paid mags thread.

I finally got my first magazine out of three! Shape! And you were right, the customer service agent was very friendly. I subscribed in February so the process took 3 months for me. Thanks so much Scoop and pathfinder35!
