Unhappy "Kitchen & Cook" goes bye-bye

Hey, Nicholas Mosher and Robo410 and anyone else who subscribes to Ktichen & Cook, listen up. In today's mail I received a notice that the November/December 2006 issue of the magazine was the LAST one that will be published.

I still have over a year left on my subscription and the letter offered me a choice from three other publications to finish my time. I didn't care for any of them. Called the company and was forwarded to another number (800-513-8407). I called that number and told the rep I wanted a refund instead of any of the three mags. She was very cordial and told me that she'd made a note and I should receive my refund in about 4 to 6 weeks.

I'm sorry the magazine won't be around anymore because it was one of my favorites. Boo hoo! Life goes on.

What were the other choices?

The three choices were:

Food and Fitness Advisor
Environmental Nutrition
Antiques Roadshow Insider


If you subscribe, you'll probably receive the same letter as I. There was no phone number on the letter. The first phone number I had came from a folder in which I keep all my magazine subscription information.

Bummer!

Looks like I'll be asking for a refund as well... none of those other options perk my interest either.

I just read the letter I received yesterday a little closer and what it said made me even happier I asked for a refund.

Even though the last issue was November/December 2006, if I opted to choose any of the other publications, I wouldn't start receiving them until APRIL 2007. That means they would have a lapse of January, February and March, which means they would be using/keeping 3 months of my money. Now I'm even happier I asked for a refund.
