I renewed my Birds&Blooms magizine order on July 7th.The $33.98 check cleared the bank on the 15th.

This bill was for 18 issues for the $33.98. Now I get another renewal bill. This one tells me I only have to pay $18.00 for 1 year and can give a friend a year free. Could you please tell me if my perscription was renewed in July seeing that I paid you $33.98 at that time?

Or could you please inform me where I stand.I really enjoy the magizine, but your billing practices have a lot to be desired. 2e9cb07

I was going to subscribe to this Magazine today (Birds and Bloom) but after reading all the complaints, I think I'll pass and go with another publisher.

To all of you out there, thanks for the warning before others have problems too.

I ordered Birds and Blooms through Publishers Clearing House. The name they used was Donna DENEEFF. Then I received what looked like a bill from your company which I paid using my name D. DENEEF. It must have been a promotion because I paid $10 for a year. Later I received a bill from PCH which I also paid. So, I believe I have another year's subscription still to come. Right ?

Well I thought I was the only one having trouble with the magazine, but to my surprise I am not. This is unreal on the amount of people having trouble and these are the only ones who take the time to send in their complants. It appears as if this company does not have a good leader at all, if this person was, then it would straighten out. Businesses like this cannot go but so long and it will fold at the expense of the management. No company should have complaints like this, it's not good business! I love the magazine, but it needs a good leader to straighten out. Then you will see good comments instead of negative. My email is richardedmartin@yahoo.com

I sent Check # 8448 at least a week ago for the renewal of Birds & Blooms for

George Weatherly #1281129

You have the # 1381129 so I need you to correct this to # 1281129. I have been paying for this wonderful magazine for many, many years. I don't know why the number was changed after so many years. Could you please let me know when you make the correction. I do not want him to miss an issue!!

Very annoying Subscription practices and hard to get on line to check the status of account. I found out that there are 2 different magazines. One is the original Birds and Blooms-issue is every other month and then there is the Birds and Blooms EXTRA.......issues are every month. Dont be confused. That is why you will be getting 2 different bills.

Then you have to notice if your subscription is with Birds and Bloom OR WITH REIMAN PUBLICATIONS. That is who you are having trouble with the threats. I only PAY Birds and Bloom. I have 7 gifts and finally renewed them all on the same month. Whew.......

I sent you a check on 9-27-2011 for $21.98 and
it cleared the bank on 10-05-2011 that was a
renewal for one year plus 8 more months FREE.
Now you say I only have two more issues??????

Got a renewal in Jan for one year @ $12.98 and
another one today. Please review your renewal
practices and inform me exactly when my sub-
scription will actually end Please. We enjoy the book.Please respond to my E-mail address.

I keep getting notices to renew, my records shows that renewal is not up til July 2012. Why do I have trouble every time I renew? You say I have 2 more mag coming before it runs out.. If that is the case I will NOT EVER renew . I never have any trouble with any other mag, just this company..Your company is so confusing as soon as I renew we get notices to renew again.

I've noticed this, as well. You have to be alert when it comes to Birds & Blooms renewal notices.

Seems like I am not the only one having "renew or subscription will expire" problems.
I renewed for 20 months in January 2011 and I have received at least 2 notices since ten threatening expiration unless I pay again. Why can't the notices stop, once the check clears the bank?
All I can say is?\"Keep a copy of your check, and info on when it cleared. You will probably need it eventually.

Your expiration date should be on the address label on your magazine. They only send out the "renewal" notices to get you to renew again or to get someone else to SUBSCRIBE not perscribe.
