U. S. A. Magazine Exchange8607 N. 59th Ave Suite E2 Glendale, Arizona U.S.A.
U.S.A. Magazine Exchange I used to work at this RIP OFF COMPANY and trust me, THEY RIP YOU OFF!!! Glendale Arizona

*Consumer Comment: l.t. get a life!!!
*Consumer Suggestion: Owner of USA Magazine Exchange now has the Rip Off Report hot on his trail.
One of the slave drivers late model BMW
Expired plates! ..employees tell Rip-off Reprot the payments on this car have not been paid for many months.
$3.36 a week is ridiculous. Did you know they only pay .50 cents a YEAR for some of your subscriptions, MOST of them are free! The publishers give the subscriptions to them free so that they can circulate them. For example, once a magazine can say it has over a million subscribers it can charge big companies BIG money to put ads in their magazine.
Meanwhile you pay this sleazy company USA Magazine Exchange $698.88 for magazines that are in most cases absolutely free to them. Pretty sickening isn't it? It is especially sad when they tell you they can't cancel your order. THEY ABSOLUTELY CAN!!! DON'T BELIEVE THEM!!! They Rip you off and laugh about it!
If you haven't recieved any magazines yet then you are home free! YOU ARE ABLE TO CANCEL! It is the law. They have not pre-paid for your magazines, they do not even pay for them untill they swipe the first payment off of your credit/debit card!
And above that they only pay for one year of your magazines at a time! So the most they can do (if you are recieving the magazines already) is make you pay for 1 year. NOT THE FOUR YEARS!! (keep in mind if you haven't RECIEVED any magazines yet then you DO NOT have to pay anything!!)
Think about it, they are making over 600% profit off of YOU in most cases. The sleazy owner, Tom Meehan Jr. drives a brand new Cadillac Escalade, Dodge Viper, Mercedes Benz, takes exotic vacations and lives in a mansion all paid in full by YOU the ripped off customer.
I am so sorry that I ever worked for this company, I am sorry to you the ripped off customer. The company got me too, they fired me because I wasn't making them enough money and then tried to deny me unemployment. They run that place like a boiler room.
Well the GOOD news is they are in HUGE TROUBLE with the Attorney General for the State of Arizona. Please get justice and file your complaints with the Attorney General of Arizona, they are the ONLY ones who will do anything for you. The BBB doesn't do anything.
If the Attorney General gets enough complaints they will shut the crooked company down. They are already investigating them so aid them in the investigation. DON'T let the USA Magazine Exchange rip you off anymore!! Tell the Attorney general what they have done to you. That is the ONLY thing that WILL get you results!
