Dropped to 1 star

The magazine itself is great. That’s why I’ve been a subscriber for over 20 years. But, no matter how long you’ve subscribed, you can’t access issues older than 2021(!) and customer support doesn’t even try to help you get those issues you paid for. Also, the app should allow you to zoom into pictures.

Tired of fighting for my subscriptions

I’ve subscribed by print, through the Apple store and from the app itself. I’ve lost access to all of my past issues (I had purchased every one back to the beginning of digital issues). Support was no help at all, refusing to look at my address and recognize that I have been a subscriber forever.

I waited a year, then re-subscribed, hoping I could use my print subscription to access back issues. Nope! I can’t even access current issues! Once again, I have absolutely no subscription and the app refuses to accept my print subscription number.

I’m done. You’ve completely destroyed my faith in my favorite magazine. If you could give zero stars, I would.

Best How-To Magazine on the market

I’ve been reading this magazine for forty years. Times have changed but their home improvement technology has kept up. Countless easy to understand articles and useful knowledge packed into each month. You will find something informative even when your not interested in that subject. I’ve learned so much from reading it cover to cover. Recommended for all ages, young and old, truly an outstanding read.
