I did a full review of MagazineDiscountCenter.com and graded the company on 10 different 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!
[wptab name=’Full Review’]BBB Rating – 10/10
MagazineDiscountCenter.com is currently accredited through the BBB and has an outstanding A+ rating. They handle customer issues promptly. You can view the full report here.
Toll Free Number – 5/10
There is not a phone number listed on the site. I feel this important to have available so customers can quickly have questions answered.
Auto-Renewals – 7/10
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.
MagazineDiscountCenter DOES use auto-renewals and clearly mentions that on the homepage. However according to customer service auto-renewal can be removed at your request.
Customer Service – 7/10
Although no customer service email was listed on the site a contact form was easy to find. Live online support is also generally available throughout the day.
I sent a test email to support and received a friendly, helpful response in three days. Compared to other magazine sites this is on the slower end.
Selection – 7/10
According to the customer service rep, MagazineDiscountCenter.com has approximately 700 titles available for sale. Compared to other sites this is a fairly average number of available titles. Most popular titles are available.
FAQ – 10/10
A “Frequently Asked Questions” page is easily found and quite helpful. A lot of common questions that you may have are answered.
Website Design – 9/10
MagazineDiscountCenter.com has a very nice clean and simple layout. Categories of magazines are easy to find. Details for each magazine are in an easy to read format. Subscribing to a magazine is pain-free and and quick.
Pricing – 9/10
I compared 10 different magazines titles across 10 websites and MagazineDiscountCenter.com consistently offers very low prices.
Discounts – 9/10
Each month around 50 titles are discounted. Each title is $5 off, and different magazines rotate each month. Check out the $5 Off Titles page to see what is on sale this month.
Overall MagazineDiscountCenter.com receives a 82 out of 100. Not having a toll free phone number listed, and adding auto-renewals lowered the score. However a great design, BBB rating, and low prices keeps this site in contention with the best magazine sites.
