Inside the box is a piece of paper with a postcard and a website address and an activation code. I need to either send in the postcard or go to the website in order to get the magazine subscription.
Could they have saved 2 or 3 bucks off the subscription price by not sending this information in a box? How about an envelope? Or an email? Or just signing me up for the subscription, as I expected would happen?
Maybe they save enough money from people losing the coupons to make it worth it.
Not wanting to waste my $15, I log onto the website and fill in the information and the name of what magazine I want, again.
They send me a confirmation email:
Dear Margery,8 to 10 weeks. The irony is, my order is for a subscription to Fast Company.
