Love TS but don’t want another Magazine Subscription
I really really want to buy the TS. I love the eyeshadow colors. Do I have to get the magazine subscription? Maybe it’s been addressed before, and I apologize if I’m beating a dead horse, but can anyone tell me if I can opt out of the magazine.
Thank you all in advance.
Gosh. I’m hoping no problems cancelling magazine. I agree..there should be an option to opt out at checkout.
I so agree with you. I just bought something – maybe a Joy Mangano TS? that came with a magazine subscription. I figured I would cancel. Well the cancellation process was so complicated!
I will think twice before I buy something else with a subscription attached 🙁
An easier way to opt out would be great – why not a simple "click" like you do for flex pay?
Aquafina, I really wanted the Too Faced TS and ordered two of them. I cancelled after realizing it included another magazine subscription. I know I can request a refund instead but didn’t want to go through the trouble…too bad there isn’t an easy, instant way to opt out…
I also would have purchased the eye shadow if there was an option to order
the product without the magazine subscription. This is the 3rd time I have not purchased because of the Magazine bundled in. Can’t HSN include a simple checkbox to check off if you do not want the magazine. I am not looking for any reduced price either – just a simple way not to deal with the hassle of a magazine subscription (no follow up paperwork/phone calls/on hold forever). When the magazines are sent for the year subscription through HSN, when it runs out you are hounded to renew and some of the times they have just sent me an automatic renewal and additional magazines on their own and started charging me for extra magazines and sending a bill. I also notice after these orders in the past that include the free magazine offer I must of been added to other solicitation and sales lists because then I was swamped with other magazine and product orders (all these media groups sell their marketing and customer lists once you agree to purchase by buying the product.). The Magazines are a wonderful bonus for those who want them, but please give those you don’t want it a hassle-free opt out or we just will skip buying the TS product all together. Thank you!
I just cancelled my order for the same reason. Why do they keep doing this?
They should have 2 order numbers, one with the magazine and one without.
I was about to buy the TS and then I saw the magazine add-on. I’m not jumping through hoops to unsubscribe. I can live without the TS.
I’ve never had a postcard included in my order. I just click on the part of the item description that links to info about the magazine. A form pops up that I print out. I copy the HSN receipt that comes with the product and mail that and the form to the address indicated. I have done this for 3 different items and always got the refund check.
However, each time I also received an issue or two of whatever magazine it was. I really don’t like magazines. I just view it as a rebate on the purchase.
Wow, great info! What receipt or proof is required?
Can someone please tell me how you receive the refund?
Do they mail you a check?
I’m still waiting for a refund since I ordered the SSC Beauty Book back in Nov.
Is it supposed to take this long?TIA
I am frankly tired of these.
We recently had one and when I sent in the card to cancel along with a copy of the hsn order info they sent me a reply saying they would not refund as I did not send a sales receipt.
This is the 3rd time I have had this happen.
I would much rather have the $8 off the price of the item rather than having to deal with this.
By the time you buy the envelope, get the stamp, copy the info for them and send it off you have eaten up the $8 refund (according to info in the 1990’s actual cost of sending letter was around $10 which greatly changed how I did some things in my company at the time).
So please, HSN stop doing this.
I won’t order an item if it has these magazines that I throw away without reading or give away to someone/anyone!
Really bad idea IMO.
AQUAFINA, a postcard with the full offer details and information on canceling the subscription will arrive with the order.
Look for the link in the pink box on the TS item page. It explains how to get the $8 refund.
