    International Addresses: Magazine subscriptions offered at Amazon.com can only be shipped within the 50 United States, APO/FPO address and U.S. Protectorates. We are unable to process magazines to other destinations at this time. Please contact the magazine's publisher for further assistance.

    When to Expect Your First Issue: Magazine subscriptions ordered at Amazon.com are shipped to you by the magazine's publisher. The first issue of a weekly magazine should arrive within 4-6 weeks of your order. The first issue of a monthly magazine should arrive within 6-10 weeks, unless otherwise noted.

    Once you've placed an order at Amazon.com, it can take one to two weeks for your subscription to be received and scheduled by the publisher. Your subscription is then added to the publisher's next production cycle and shipped via standard mail. For example, if your monthly subscription was ordered and received by the publisher in November, and the December issue has already shipped, your order may be added to the January mailing. You can find out more information, including how to contact the publisher about your subscription, in Amazon's Magazine Subscription Manager.

    Renewing Your Subscription: If you are ordering as a renewal to the same name and address as the current subscription, the publisher will add the Amazon order to your current subscription. For example, if you have 5 issues left and you add 12 through Amazon, you will now have 17 issues left on your subscription. Please note that the expiration date in the Magazine Subscription Manager will not reflect if you were already on file with the publisher. We will work with the publisher to ensure that you still receive all of the issues left on your subscription.

1.0 out of 5 stars They will try to scam you into renewing. November 30, 2014
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I paid for one year of magazines upfront. The magazine itself was ok, not enough to entice me into renewing. Once the subscription was up, the magazines stopped and the renewal offer letters started. I ignored them as I did not want to renew, but like others, they started sending delinquency notices and threatening to put marks on my credit. I am still receiving these notices years after my subscription ended. They are no better than scam artists and it's really pathetic that such a large company would use such tactics. Avoid putting yourself through this as there are better sports magazines out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Keep the mag...just give me ESPN Insider December 21, 2007
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Like a previous reviewer, I subscribed to this magazine solely for the access to ESPN Insider. Instead of paying $6.99/month for Insider, $14.99 gets me a year of ESPN Insider, along with a year of the magazine. As for the magazine itself, it's sort of a high-energy, exciting, layout-filled sports page. The tone of it is far from serious, as it is filled with jokes and sarcasm (not necessarily a bad thing.) But if you're looking for a well-written magazine with insightful articles, stick to Sports Illustrated. If you simply want a colorful magazine filled with cool sports information (and your ESPN Insider access), go ahead and get this. I did, and I look forward to renewing it in a few months. In fact, just for the ESPN Insider, I'm raising my rating from three to four stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE October 4, 2014
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal
Worst magazine subscription ever. I had a subscription for a year, average magazine at best. OK articles from time to time, but there better publications out there. But the real problem is that they trick you into the "insider" on-line material for what they say is free but requires a credit card. Along with this is an auto-renewal, which they said they disabled when I originally gave the information. They charged me full price for the following year and added on a monthly insider fee also (so much for the disable feature). Call them on the phone and you speak to clowns.........waist of time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great if your attention span is less than 30 seconds January 10, 2007
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I purchased this magazine solely to get cheaper access to ESPN Insider Online. The magazine is so all over the place otherwise that its hardly worth reading. Its chock full of tidbits that barely gloss over sports topics. I keep it in my bathroom and I guess its good there when I only have a few minutes to read while brushing my teeth or whatnot. Don't expect SI-type depth though, its full of ads and slick factoid type departments. Reading this magazine is like watching Sportscenter, a lot of many little things with no depth on anything. I guess its worth it for less than 60 cents an issue, but if I sat down to read this magazine cover to cover I would be done with it totally in under 15 minutes....enjoy.

1.0 out of 5 stars ESPN - Corrupt Company - Falsifies Renewals June 26, 2013
Subscription Term Name:5 month auto-renewal|Verified Purchase
ESPN sent a bogus renewal of this subscription to a collection agency when I wouldn't renew the subscription. ESPN falsified a renewal order. How corrupt is ESPN and their supporting agencies?

I believe this can and will be settled in small claims court at 'treble the damages' at the maximum award amount. With that success, I'm sure there is a hungry lawyer who will "class action" a correction to ESPN's devious and falsified business practices.

I'm not the first to get one of these after doing a internet search... [...]

1.0 out of 5 stars I'd NEVER buy this again May 21, 2015
Subscription Term Name:5 month auto-renewal|Verified Purchase
The biggest issue I have with this is the way the publisher handled the renewal. I bought this for my 14-year-old son and he was sent a bill for the next two years worth of magazines once the introductory offer expired. We ignored it and he was then sent a threatening letter stating they'd take legal action if necessary. I responded and they piped down, but it was very unnecessary and unprofessional.

1.0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE!!!! July 6, 2015
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Know that you will be sent to a Collection Department if you do not call ESPN the Magazine and cancel your subscription after the year is up. I let the subscription lapse, like I would any normal magazine, but several months later received a Collection Department notice saying I owed $44.95. This is a SCAM, in my opinion, and I wish I had never signed up for ESPN the Magazine. My son never read the magazine, it went straight into the recycle every time. Such a waste and such a bogus subscription!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars has big feet December 24, 2006
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Like a puppy with large paws, ESPN The Magazine may grow up to be a large periodical. Right now I'd call it a fun-loving puppy without housetraining.

Don't get me wrong, puppies are cute. I like puppies. Everybody does.

You may not want to pay an annual subscription for a magazine that looks and acts like a puppy, though. That's your call. I wanted SI, but that venerable publication can't be had for the price of frequent flyer miles like ESPN The Magazine can. So I compromised.

By comparison with SI, ESPN The Magazine gives you a flashier, big-photo, post-modern jumble of short pieces that seems to derive from the verbal, television-friendly style of its parent. I'm not the deepest of sports fan, so I don't mind this. But if you're after the kind of in-depth analysis that SI offers, you might be disappointed by this alternative.

ESPN The Magazine is definitely a *fun* read, and if that's what you want, you'll like this. When my first issue came wrapped in a 'special promotional issue cover jacket' that presented Ricky Bobby as 'Sports Figure of the Year?', I knew instantly that this publication couldn't be all bad.

And it's not.

But it's light. It's airy. It's bubbly.

Think SI Lite. Think halfway between a comic book and USA Today. Think a puppy with big feet.

Hey, puppies are just all right with me.
