Domino Delusions

So today I received a letter from Domino magazine that surprised me to say the least. The letter helpfully informed me that my subscription was due to expire in May 2009, and that since I was set up for automatic renewal, my credit card was being charged now for the renewal. Now, I won't even address the fact that it is several months before my current subscription expires making the timing of this a little insane. Instead I would like to focus on the fact that Conde Nast announced this week that Domino is folding and that the last issue will come out in February 2009. February 2009. Several months before my subscription is set to expire. At the moment, I assume I'll be forced to accept some other magazine (likely Lucky) until my subscription runs out in May, but I'll be damned if I'm going to let them sucker me into this renewal. I didn't open my mail until after 11pm, but bright and early tomorrow I'll be making an angry call- I'll keep you posted on developments!

My card didn't say they were going to charge my credit card- but boy were they begging to get me to re-up (for april).

I told my husband I wanted to call my congress critter- Conde Nasty knew they were going to pull the plug on Domino when they mailed those letters, think about all those people who don't read blogs like we do and have no idea Domino is being shut down. All they want is some more money...

PS my verifcation word is hater. Which is how I feel toward Conde Nast

Same for me - my last issue is apparently March. They have been SO ready for me to re-subscribe though, I have been getting these notifications for months!

I haven't even gotten a card. I'm going to assume my subs has just run out...
