Default Inmate Magazine Service

I was wondering if anyone has used inmatemagazineservice.com before. I was considering trying them out as they have 3 magazine subscriptions available for $15, and 5 for $20. It sounds too good to be true so I thought I might toss it out to the PTO family for feedback. Any other reasonable magazine vendors would be appreciated as well. Thanks for listening

I have not used them. It will be interesting to see if anyone has had
experience with this company. But it does sound too good to be true.
I have always gone to the magazine's website or to A Barnes and Noble
or someone like that and have had no trouble. But it does get a little
expensive.

I'm using them for my husband's magazine subscriptions and love them
Just make sure you keep a list of the magazines you're ordering because not all subscriptions will arrive and you will have to call them. Also, you will have to wait at least two months for the first issues to arrive, so you won't know whether he is getting all magazines you ordered for a good while.

I have not used them, but I was getting ready to use MagHound.com and it looks to be similar to the inmate one.

Oh, speaking of magazine subscriptions, I got a letter from my husband today saying that an inmate suggested we used www.GSPmags.com I haven't used them yet, but as soon as I do, I'll provide feedback
