The key to managing magazine subscriptions is to keep on top of them like you keep track of your checking account. Charges will sneak up on you if you don't. Most publishers don't warn you that an imminent renewal is coming.

There are a few things about your account that you need in order to manage your subscriptions. The first is the label on the magazine. The label has most of the information about the you need to get started:

  1. Account number
  2. Subscription end date
  3. Name
  4. Mailing address for magazine

You can make any changes to your account here including renewal, cancellation, mail hold, missed issues, and changes of address.

If you are unable to find the website to make changes, open your magazine and look for a section in the first few pages which provides names and contact information. There is usually a section about address changes. Contact anyone on this page, someone might be able to help with your subscription.

You might run across a problem with all of these steps. Don't worry, DoNotPay has you covered. We will get your subscription canceled in 3 easy steps.
