So for the last 3 years Playboy has been ripping their customers off . If you pay for a full 12month subscription - Playboy only sends 10 issues to your address. They now have whats called a double issue which is put out 2x's a year. Now the double issue is only 15 -20 % bigger and is mostly advertising - big deal they give you 2 centerfolds , they should do this anyway as the subscription cost are quite high.
I called and voiced my displeasure and Playboy's customer service was very stiff and frankly unfriendly - you received 12 issues , well after finally getting thru these brainwashed reps , they agreed that only 10 issues had been mailed out. which pisses me off as this business practice is a complete and utter RipOff.
Wonder if anyone ever added up how much revenue they loose - a double issue comes out for - June & July & I'm sure everyone buys one the first of June - well what happens to sales in July ? Gotta be dismal as the magazine is the same from June. Same scenerio happens in Jan - Feb .
I believe PlayBoy has set themselves up for a class action law suit - I hope someone brings one. Obviously Hef is no longer involved as I know he sure wouldn't stand for his long time customers being bent over 2 x's a year
