Option to link print account doesn't work
on February 11, 2014
I have a print subscription to GQ that is supposed to come with a free Kindle edition. It gives you three options to link your account, none of which work correctly. When I enter my subscription number it takes me to a screen to create an account but when I enter in my login and password I get a "technical difficulty" error. When I try using the login and password to my GQ account I get an error that my login couldn't be found. The free preview worked just fine, but I had to cancel it so I wouldn't be charged for something I already paid for.
I finally did get this to work. The problem was the password. I had tried using a new password for GQ, but as I had been a subscriber to another Conde Nast publication, I needed to use the password I had created for that publication, not a new password. While I am now able to download the kindle version of GQ, downloading is not strait forward. The publication appears on the Kindle every month, but it doesn't actually start downloading the entire issue until you start reading it. Therefore if you start reading it when you're offline you won't have access to the full issue until you connect.
