i buy a lot of subscriptions from ebay and i've never had any problems! just make sure the seller is reputable (:Yeah, I'd like to get those magazines as well. Anyone know any good deals?
By the way - have you ever tried ordering magazines on ebay? It can be a pain sometimes cause the delivery time takes forever, but you can often find some good deals if you are willing to wait and follow up with the seller.
eBay no longer allows the sale of magazine subscriptions. I used to buy them through eBay and it was basically hit-or-miss. My last 2 subscriptions were from "reputable" sellers with over 1000+ feedback; yet, they did not arrive. The lame excuse is you have to wait at least 12 weeks to ask about the subscription since it can take that long for a subscription to start. By then, the fraudulent sellers would have taken your money and it's too late to file with paypal. I suppose it was happening so frequently that ebay had to stop allowing for the sale of these subscriptions.
