1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy! January 25, 2011
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase

I can not stress to you enough not to buy this on Amazon through Synapse Services, Inc. You will not get your magazine, you will not receive a refund, and you will waste your time and money! Flush your money, it's more effictive way to get rid of it.

I purchased NG for my father in June 6th 2010 as a renewal to his subscription which was expiring on Feburary 2011. I just got a last chance renewal from NG, they say my subscription is expiring? It should be good till Feburary 2012! They said they did receive an order from Synapse on June 10th but then it was canceled by Synapse in July?

NG was nice enough to give me Synapse's phone number 877-813-0320. Be sure to press 0 and go for the agent, even though it won't help you, the supervisor can't help you either!

I just got off a long phone call with Synapse Services, Inc. they canceled the subscription for no reason on their end. They never fullfilled the request? They say they refunded, but there is no refund, Amazon still has it listed active? I just wanted the magazine, they had already received payment why did they cancel it? They can't tell me? I have never been so disatisfied with a company in my life. I will be contacting Amazon, contacting the Credit Card company for payment with no service, BBB for failure to produce service, etc. I will also issue a invoice to them for my wasted time!

Basically what this company does is when they receive the actual payment from Amazon they then call up NG and cancel your subscription so they don't have to pay NG and they keep the money. Wow; what a great money making business!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Another cancelled order... July 17, 2010
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
As others have stated, probably not a great idea to order Nat Geo through Amazon. I placed my order in June and received a cancellation e-mail from them today. If Amazon can't fill the subscriptions at this price, they shouldn't be offering it. Great magazine, just don't order it here.

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding magazine June 10, 2003
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Who doesn't know National Geographic? Despite the term 'national' in the title, this is a publication that has an international reputation, and has set its sights on exploring every inch of the globe, and beyond. School children everywhere use National Geographic as a resource. It is a periodical, however, that goes far beyond the school library. Interesting, erudite, broad-ranging and fascinating (in addition to being, dare I say it, educational), National Geographic has something for everyone.
Articles involve history, culture, sociology, biology, architecture, archaeology, and physical science in addition to the trademark item, geography. Recent issues have included articles on archaeology of the Indus Valley, earthquakes in Turkey, Samoan culture, jellyfish, and dinosaurs. National Geographic has a knack for combining the timely with the timeless to make each issue interesting from a current events perspective (recent articles on the Golan Heights and touring London show this) as well as being worthy of retaining for future reference by combining history and other details.
Coupled with the articles, National Geographic has fantastic photography. In the June issue, there is a 'family photo' that was taken at the annual photographic seminar in Washington, D.C., in which more than half of the regular contributors to the magazine were present and photographed around the great seal of National Geographic. According the caption:
'The 47 men and women shown have collectively logged some 700 years taking pictures for this magazine alone. They've photographed roughly 715 articles, and at a current average of 29,000 frames shot per story, that works out to about 20.7 million images.

1.0 out of 5 stars Prepare to wait a lifetime for your first issue September 10, 2010
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I ordered this subscription to National Geographic in late August. Afterwards, I'm told I wont even get my first issue until late November. So prepare to wait a lifetime if you subscribe here. You may or may not have better luck through the publisher's direct website.

1.0 out of 5 stars The NatGeo Marketing Arm Needs to Give Me a Break! June 22, 2010
By D Co
Subscription Term Name:1 year
If you like getting phone calls while you eat dinner, order National Geographic. While I was looking forward to the great photography, I regret ordering a subscription to NatGeo. Be warned, they will call you while you eat, to pitch "we will you send you a free world map, and a video and if you choose to keep the video, we will only charge you $.$$"
After a long day of answering phones at work, I don't want my home phone to ring. But NatGeo will call, they will call again, sometimes they'll just hang up on you, sometimes they'll pitch a product.
With many print publications dying off due to the internet, it's amazing that NatGeo is driving customers away by becoming a 400 lb gorilla.
And if they call my house again, I will cancel my subscription, take the loss and call it a lesson learned. (and then begin reporting to the no phone sales administration.
Really sick of it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy through Amazon but directly July 24, 2007
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I bought National Geographics for my elderly father over 3 months ago. To this day no magazines have arrived. Tired of waiting and after a phone call from him, I barred the wait to talked to someone in NG. They told me that going through Amazon takes at least 3 months!!! and that they have shiped my order two day ago and it will take 2 weeks in transport. If I go directly through them it takes 1 months.

Shipping outside the U.S.
It looks like it can't, not from anyway. If you look at the details under the shipping info, they will tell you it can only be sent within the U.S. If you are looking to get a gift subscription for your daughter in Sweden, I would recommend going to the National Geographic website.... Read More

Why are no Subscriptions Available Today??
I'm having the same issue. Downloaded the 50% off voucher specifically to subscribe to this magazine and now it's not available?? That's really bizarre in my opinion. Hope it comes back up before the voucher expiration date. :-(
