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

AUTHOR: Sonny - ()

When they call you and have you sign up for another year, they only tell you 1 year subscription costs x and a 2 year costs x

 

They know what they are doing , which is the oldest scam known -  Bait & Switch & increase profit at all cost.

 

Also are you a woman ? You sure write like one.

Guess you missed this, are you old enough to subscribe, or do you just read the articles.  Looks like you should have known going in what their policies are.
