Publishers Clearing House Doubled my magazine subscription Internet
Every once in a while I succumb to playing in Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes. One of the items I ordered through them was a bargain subscription to Smithsonian magazine. Several weeks after ordering through PCH I got a bill from Smithsonian, which I promptly paid. Last week I received two issues each of the June and July issues. I tried to find a way to report this through the PCH website and to get some advice on how to stop one of them, either PCH or Smithsonian, from continuing to send a magazine. The PCH website is impenetrable except for numerous ways to get you back to playing their games. You can't find a way to email them and there is no phone number. Heaven knows what would happen if you tried to write to them. So I took the easy way out and called Smithsonian, which mercifully prints a phone number to reach their subscription office right in their magazine. Smithsonian promptly cancelled the subscription for me. I am just waiting to see what happens when PCH sends their bill. If they charge me more than the $10 advertised price I will be right back to report to this rip-off site. I will certainly never play in Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes again, simply to avoid the memory of having to deal with them.
