Game Magazine Subscriptions Cancelled? Credit/Refund might Be Waiting For You.
Have you lost out on a game magazine subscription (or any other subscription) in the past couple years because the publication has ceased operations?
Well, if you bought the subscription through any kind of “magazine drive” (Girl Scouts, School promotion, door-to-door, etc.) you probably actually bought (unknown to you) it through QSP. (Quality School Plan).
I have been having trouble with my subscription to PC Gamer, and finally after many emails, PC Gamer customer Service gave me the phone number of QSP.
QSP took my zip-code and full name, and they were able to see nearly every subscription that I had ordered in the past few years. Not only that, but two of them (a failed PC Gamer subscription from 2007, and a recent subscription to EGM that halted after they stopped publishing) qualified for a FULL CREDIT.
I ordered a couple different subscriptions (Rolling Stone, Nickelodeon), but the point is, had I *not* called QSP, I would have had no idea that I could get a credit/refund or other magazines from past failed subscriptions. The publisher sure did not inform me of this when the magazines stopped coming. Anyway, if you have had a recent subscription cancelled/falied/ceased publication magazine that have not followed-up on, it might be wise to call them and ask about the status.

By the way, this call to QSP has still not cleared-up my bizarre missing subscription to PC Gamer from 2008,but I feel a bit better now about other game mag subscriptions (especially EGM)that I have lost in recent time.
