Question for magazines published by the same company. For example GQ and Allure are managed in the same customer account.
If I ordered GQ first. After successfully changed address to Canadian address, and then later on order Allure (using US address), will my Allure order be rejected?

That's a scary question...

I try avoiding doing that, because I've had my entire collection revert back to USA, but that was years ago.

Best way to avoid that possible issue, would be using a totally different name and email, redirect to Canada, then merge into your main account.

Is it normal for most of these magazines to be out of stock? Have tried GQ and Conde Net and nothing

Thanks

Yes the deals usually expire shortly. You need to subscribe to this thread and act quickly.

For RecycleBank, how do I go about changing my address? I got emails confirming my subscriptions, but no confirmation number or any other info? Do I have to contact them or the magazine publisher to get this information. And how long do I have to wait?

Thanks

Anyone recently able to successfully get Men's Health sub ordered via RecycleBank, and change address via a created MH account? I know they 6-8 weeks etc, but no account created as of yet (close to 7 weeks). I was able to order Motor Trend and switch that sub in under 3 weeks. Might have to bite the bullet and call MH CS.

You would go to the magazine's customer service website and logon using your US address. Usually for Recyclebank, the subs take 2-4 weeks to be created and then you're able to logon at the magazine website.

I assume you went to this customer care website - https://service.menshealth.com/login? - and tried to logon via your US address.
I tried using my Canadian address and it worked but I had to make sure no email address was entered before it worked. Once logged on, it displayed all the Hearst published mags I have subs to - Veranda, Oprah, Popular Science as well as Men's Health.
If you can't find it, then you probably have to call a customer agent (1-800-666-2303 ) who may be able to find it. Recyclebank is usually very reliable, as you stated.
