I’m a 53 yo independent. I have been a regular buyer of your magazine since college in the mid 80’s. Unfortunately, I can no longer support your magazine with my buying dollar based on the false cut paste cover of Trump and the crying immigrant. This cover was a false propaganda story which has been proven false. This is why Americans no longer trust the media and journalists. I hope you and your corporate entity figured this out and can do the right thing based on this falsehood. I will NOT fall into this kind of propaganda. It’s shameful.

You couldn't find real news so you use fake picture to make president look bad.You are the problem with this country we expect unbiased reporting and you give us your opinion.You are no better than Natl. INQUIRER.I am very disappointed the only thing Time magazine is good for is to wrap up trash.

Posted by wbetson

Time is a disgrace for putting that photo of that crying girl on the cover with our President and then insinuating that she was separated from her parents. This girls father has cleared the air. She was smuggled into the country, never separated from her mother. Time - you lost a customer. What you've done here is brought yourself down to the lowest common denominator.

Dear People:

My name is Edilena Homem de Mello

I have sent you many messages like the one below without receiving any answer.

Summarizing: I am retired and living in Brazil since 2010. Since then I have been trying to cancel my subscriptions of Time Magazine and Fortune. I am no longer receiving the magazines. I imagine you keep sending them to my address in NY ( at Colgate Palmolive). So, I am losing money. I am a retired person and I cannot afford to pay for someone to read the magazines during 8 years already.

My last e.mail to you that was never answered is below:

Dear People :

Please, help me. Confirm you have received this e.mail. Please, read the e.mails below.

I even tried once to call you and I was told nobody can find my data and that would be better do send and e.mail. But you never answer my e.mails. So I sent you an e.mail. (below you find it) with a photo of the labels of the last magazines I received. No answer was sent.

I am thing about hiring a lawyer to help me with this issue. Eight years paying you without being able to cancel the subscription is too much. Please, answer this e.mail so I know you have received it. Please, solve this issue. I am now retired and I don't have money to through away like that.

Subject: Big Problem- need your help

Dear people:

I have subscriptions of Time Mahgazine and Fortune and I have been trying to cancel them since 2010. I was an expat, I have retired and I am back to my country, Brasil, so I no longer recive the magazines. Six years paying without receiving the magazines.

Many times I have tried to cancel my subscriptions but you have informed me that my subscription number was not valid anymore, so you could not accept it.

My personal data is:

Edilena Homem de Mello

Address of subscription was: Park Avenue 300, NY,10022 7402 at Colgate Palmolive.

For the reasons above I don't have the last issues you have sent to me, but I am sending attached photos of the identificatibn on the last magazines I still have with me.

Please, don't charge me anymore. It is a lot of money for a retired person.

I would appreciatte you answering this e.mail.

Thanks a lot,


PS Anyway; I'll tell Citibank to stop paying this bill.

I deleted the photos because you doesn't accept html.

I am STILL getting 2 copies of TIME rather than my subscription being extended. You said it would take about three weeks but it�s taking longer now. Please revisit and rectify this.

My mother died three years ago and I canceled her subscription to Time magazine. I asked if they could add it to mine or send me a refund since she was in another state. The RUDE girl said they would have to credit the credit card I had previously used. I explained that I no longer had that credit card but I would be happy to give her the number of my new one. She said no, they had to do that, as required by law. I asked how they could do that when I no longer had that card. She hung up on me. Yesterday a few women were talking about poor customer service and I brought up about Time magazine. I decided to contact them again and after a half hour on the phone was told the same thing. First they told me they had no record of me ever getting it. I found an old one and gave them the customer number. Oooops...they found it! He reiterated that there was nothing they could do. TIME magazine stinks and I would never order from them again. Truly, their customer service is the worst!!!!!

Here is my account
I have been reading Time for dozens of years without a problem. For the last year and a half, since I settled in Colorado there are regular missed issues. Sometimes I get on line and report but often don't.

I am tired of this and when this subscription runs out will not renew.

You don't seem to care enough to service a customer.

When will I receive my new Time subscription by mail.

The jealousy and immature behavior of many Americans is both sad and disappointing . Including your magazine staff . Leave the city ... walk in someone else shoes .. The Democratic Party was historically the voice of the working family .. not now. ... keep people in poverty .. give them a " paycheck " .. for nothing ... food stamps, cell phones, extra money for each child.. keep the welfare rolls growing. ... instead of education
Skills to leave poverty and have your own mind ... oh yes liberals always move their lips Why not mentor and teach instead of rioting and not supporting their communities Oh yes Wake up.

Can you please tell me when my time mag sub is due and what method of payment I used last time

Time Mag was noted for good and prompt service. Not anymore. The service is terrible!

I sent the watch back as it is not working properly by registered post. (See below). Your company did not accept it. It was returned to me. Waste of my money sending it in the first place.

Mrs. Moosa received 4 copies so far and all late.

Mr. Yunus Moosa received ONLY ONE COPY in all this time. Yet he was supposed to receive one each week. What is happening to the good service of past times?

Please if the service is this bad kindly cancel my subscription and refund me the balance. I am extremely disappointed.

Dear Sir / Madam,

I have received the gift, a wrist watch a week ago. However I am returning it as it is not working properly.

When I received it worked for 4 days and the battery went flat. I had a new battery fitted and it worked but I noticed that when the time is on 6 0� clock the hour hand is off alignment.

I would appreciate it if you could replace it please.

Secondly, as yet I have not received any copies of the Time Magazine. Can you advise when I should start receive it?

Thank you, and kind regards,

Ahmed Moosa.

Subscription cancelled Jan 2016. R425 was deducted from my credit card account on 12 Jan 2016. No magazines received during 2016. Again R450 was deducted from my Credit card account on 12 January 2017. Can't find a way to communicate my problem with a real person. Tel no supplied is listed as "invalid".

Ihave been trying to cancel my subscription to Time magazine but keep going around in circles. I am presented with an electronic form which asks for information. I supply this but it is continuously being rejected. An account number is requested but the example given bears no resemblence to that appearing on the address lable. It is presumed that I live in USA which I do not and requests my state! To say that I am pissed off would be putting it mildly.

Sir/Madam, I paid and you collected $21.00 from my account on 10/25/17 as of today I have not received my subscription. Please review your records and get back to me at the following e-mail, thanks

To inform you that a company called Secured Publisher Mail center is scamming subscription money. We bought a 2 year subscription to Time in March and they cashed the check in March for $68.20 . We haven't received the magazine, of course, and they won't return my queries.

Posted by Ruea E Davis

Tried to reach customer service, a person without success. I have ordered Time Magazine since 1962. I stopped receiving the magazine. Please research my account and tell me what is the problem. Why did it stop. We always received it on Friday. Remember when Time changed the mail date so we would have it for the weekend.

Thank you.

These days it is nearly impossible to get a live person by phone at companies but I actually goggled and got a phone number and in about 2 1/2 minutes a pleasant man named James at TIME customer service. I explained I was moving to a new state Dec 1 and wanted to renew my subscription at the special renewal rate of $29.95 while updating my contact information. I explained that my husband had died and so his first name was also no longer valid. I also explained that TIME is one of the only magazines I am renewing at this point. He carefully wrote out the new information and advised me that the first magazine I would receive would be Dec Dec 7. Good heavens, what a treat to actually talk to someone who carefully got all the information! He was professional and I feel assured that I will receive the magazine in my new home. GREAT WORK TIME and A PLUS to JAMES in Customer Service.

I had subscribed to Time Magazine a few years ago and received a watch.
Last year September 2012 I renewed my subscription. As advertised that a watch will be sent to you and I am still waiting.
What is the problem is this a con for you to subscribe to the magazine.

I just called customer service on behalf of my aunt to cancel her magazine subscription. She lives in an assisted living facility and has access to a magazine in the facility's library. I was able to reach customer service immediately
and talked to a very helpful,friendly, and courteous representative that took care of my request.

Thank you very much for the quick response.

No problems. I was on hold for less that three minutes, spoke to a friendly customer service representative, and renewed my subscription quickly and without complications.

Sorry to hear of all the complaints, but my experience was very satisfactory.

My subscription was renewed without my knowledge, and when I contacted them by phone, they immediately refunded me the total amount that the renewal had costed within 3 days. Great service!

I have several subscriptions through this publishers...Time Magazine being one of them. I must say that anytime I have had to contact their customer service I have had the most polite and eager to help representatives. I spoke to several reps that were all located in Ocala, FL. I wish all customer service calls I had to make would go so smoothly. Way to go..keep up the good work :)

Posted by aireastern

I had a different experience. The call was answered promptly and the complex situation was resolved without any problem or delay. Perhaps things have changed since the last postings. I reached the Ocala, Florida office.
