I did a complete review of BestDealMagazines.com and graded the company on 10 factors, with each factor being worth 10 points. This is the same grading scale I used for other magazine sites. The final score out of 100 is at the end of the review. Enjoy!

BBB Rating – 6/10
BestDealMagazines.com at the time of this writing does not currently have a grade with the Better Business Bureau. However they do have a page at the BBB where you can find out more info about the company.

Toll Free Number – 9/10

There is a toll free phone number available to call however it is not prominently listed on the site, this knocks down the score one point.

Auto-Renewals – 10/10

Auto-renewals automatically charge your credit card when your subscription ends, adding on another year to your subscription. This is not needed and I believe it is not good for the consumer. BestDealMagazines DOES NOT use auto-renewals and clearly mentions that on their site.

Customer Service – 9/10

A customer support email was easy to find on the site. I sent a test question to all the magazine sites that I reviewed. BestDealMagazines responded with a friendly reply within 12 hours, quite fast compared to other sites.

Selection – 7/10

I added up the number of current titles available to purchase and found 681. This number may fluctuate up and down over the course time but will generally be around that number. In relation to other magazine sites 681 titles is fairly average. Most popular titles are available.

FAQ – 10/10

A “Frequently Asked Questions” page is easily found and very helpful. A lot of common questions that you may have are answered on this page.

Privacy Policy – 10/10

Privacy of your information is highly important when ordering online. One thing I check for on each magazine site I review was a privacy policy that states how your information is collected and protected. BestDealMagazines.com has a quality policy and ranks quite well.

Website Design – 7/10

Although easy to navigate and read, BestDealMagazines.com’s website has a slightly outdated feel to it. Some of the design elements are showing their age, and the shopping cart is not as streamlined as some of the other magazine sites.

Pricing – 8/10

I compared 10 different magazines titles across 10 websites and BestDealMagazines consistently offers fairly low and competitive prices. BDM also offers free industry trade publications. To see if you qualify you simply need to fill out an application form.

Discounts – 9/10

Approximately 85 titles are available for either $5.95 or $4.69. BDM also offers really great weekly specials including unique discount codes. Click here to see what is the special of this week.

Use coupon code “BIG20DEAL” and every magazine priced $5.95 or $4.69 is 20% off. Pay only $4.76 or $3.75 per year!

Summary

Overall BestDealMagazines receives a 85 out of 100. An outdated website and non existant BBB rating slightly lowers the score. However low prices and great discounts help keep this site in the running with other reviewed sites.
