I subscribed to Reader's Digest.  Understand I have a 14 day free trial.  I've not received a copy of the magazine to my Kindle and 4 days of the trial have gone by.  When do they deliver my first copy, day 13 of the trial offer????

Have you:

1) turned on Whispernet?
2) searched for new content?
3) checked you Kindle page on Amazon. com to determine the status of it?

I signed up for Newsweek and got the current issue as fast as I would any book. The next day I got the next weeks issue.

Go to your account and look for this:



See if the Reader's Digest is on the list, if it has a date and if it is pending delivery.

Since I am still new to the kindle world (have had him a month), I think that your question was valid. I had to learn how to find content on the "Manage Your Kindle" page without help from these wonderful people. Sometimes it was confusing!

Isn't Readers Digest a monthly? You should receive the most current issue, but one is all you're going to receive for free.

Maybe not. Depends on the timing of the issues published. I subscribed to Ellery Queen and immediately got last month's issue. Then I got the current month just a couple of days later when it came out. Same thing happened with Isaac Asimov's.

Thank you. I'll try to be a better "newbie" next time!
It was a good question, John! I'm so happy that I can post pictures to actually show people what to look for, rather than writing out a mountain of explanations which may not be clear!

The other thing is, don't worry too much if you go past your 14 days.  I subscribed to something, didn't like it, and wanted to cancel.  I think I was at something around 20 days.  I had gotten billed already for my first 'real' month.  When I cancelled, I got a credit back for the unused part of the subscription.  Now, if I decide to re-subscribe to that one, Amazon will know I've already used my 14 day trial and will charge me right away for a new subscription.

Good point, Ann. You can have only one trial subscription and they do keep track, so you can't trial, cancel, trial again thus getting it for free.
