United Readers Service acts as a hub for magazine lovers. The company sells magazine subscriptions to businesses and consumers across the United States. Popular and niche magazines about animals, boating, cooking, crafting, hunting, religion, science, and travel are all offered through United Readers Service.
Sounds like the perfect service, right? Wrong. Sales are virtually all obtained through telemarketing sales programs, and often times consumers may not realize what they are signing up for. And, because United Readers Service is an intermediary between a magazine consumer and the magazine, it creates an extra step in the process if you want to cancel your account.
United Readers Service is not a very transparent company if you believe the reviews, and it’s not completely clear how to cancel your subscriptions once you join United Readers Service (there is likely a short window per their terms). In fact, there are many complaints on the forum, ComplaintsBoard.com that express how they feel the company refuses to cancel their subscription without hefty fees. One user explains that they are only able to cancel their United Readers Service membership after paying an outrageous $200 fee. Even worse, the Better Business Bureau gave the United Readers Service a F grade due to its 300-some complaints.
If you’re looking to cancel United Readers Service now, read on.
If you are still having issues, you may want to reach out to your state's Attorney General. They will have reporting options on their website. You can also speak to your bank about your options.
