  • The first print issue should arrive in 4-6 weeks. Details

    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.

    Publication Frequency: Magazines which show "irregular" availability are those which are not published according to a regular schedule. If you place an order for such a magazine, you will receive new issues as soon as they are available.

  • Control your subscription settings anytime using Amazon's Magazine Subscription Manager.
  • If you purchase the auto-renewing offer, your subscription will renew at the end of the current term. Before it renews, we will send you a reminder notice stating the term and rate then in effect. Cancel anytime.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Slow Death of a Once Proud Magazine November 21, 2005
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I have been a subscriber to TIME for over 15 years and before that a reader of my parents' subscription. It pains me to say that this magazine has forgotten what it is about. Frankly, the only issues worth their salt are those resulting from a major world event such as a natural disaster or a terror attack; such events seem to energize an otherwise listless staff of seemingly bored editors and newswriters.

A newsweekly has the obligation to go beyond the newspapers--to use the extra couple days to provide a more balanced and analytical view. Unfortunately TIME fixes its editorial position at the beginning of a story--any future coverage is designed to prove TIME's initial position correct. The immediate taking of an editorial position is then carried into all future coverage of the event; stifling analysis and preventing any analytical development beyond the first few stories--"we told you so, we told you so." Even worse, the coverage of a lengthy story peters out until something sensational happens at which point the sensational event becomes the ultimate interpretation of the entire story. Can't the magazine occasionally admit it was wrong rather than turning its eye away from the story that continues to burn? Out of sight, out of mind is the mantra...

In fact, I sometimes debate whether the decline of this magazine mirrors or outpaces the general decline in our media; newspapers are failing, television news can't seem to get away from the gory or sensationalistic, even academic journals have specialized themselves into irrelevance. We seem to have a greater appreciation for comedy than analysis.

Neutrality is dead.

Ok, I ordered in July and still have not received it. So I called Synapse, the Amazon Magazine company. Amazon customer service cannot transfer since it drops calls. So, called synapse directly, and they do not know, and say its the publisher. So, I have nothing, but they have charged my card. My advice, go directly to the publisher. Also, since I ordered via Amazon, I now get sales calls. So, Amazon sells your info to Synapse that sells it to marketers who spam your phone with calls. Bad experience.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do the Math February 13, 2006
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I picked up a recent, random issue of Time from a pile. And counted:

96 pages.
- 67 full pages worth of advertisements. (61 full pages, plus 12 half-page ads).
= 29 pages of "content"

And many articles are like advertisements, covering celebrity,entertainment product, diets, gadgets, and vitamins. Plus 4 pages in the sampled issue cover the "social trend" of having your closets customized. So you're left with very little lost in the clutter: Letters to the Editor (that pale next to internet blog posts/responses), short-attention span current event snippets; and Time's news stories with lots of big pictures! Whoopdideedoo!

In short, Time seems aimed at intellectually lazy uber-consumers (who are also apparently too lazy to organize they're own closets!) who like Catalogs, and who have very limited interest in what's going on.

4.0 out of 5 stars New sections an improvement February 21, 2007
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I was unsure about renewing my subscription to TIME, a solid-if-unspectacular magazine that delivers in-depth coverage of major domestic stories while spending most of its foreign reporting on Iraq. I have high regard for the new regular sections on History and Law. I will reserve judgement on another new section titled "The Power of One," but Caroline Kennedy's recent work on a New York City principal left something to be desired.

If you're looking for deep coverage of world news, this is not the magazine for you--look into The Economist or Foreign Affairs. But as a weekly summary of U.S. news with sharp analysis of the '08 Presidential contenders TIME does just fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but going downhill January 2, 2015
By XiMiX
Subscription Term Name:2 years|Verified Purchase
I used to love this magazine. It is sort of a Reader's Digest of weekly events.
It is the one to read if you can only read one magazine.
Unfortunately the number of pages has drastically gone down in the last few years and there are fewer articles per ads, so the value has gone down. The subscription includes online access, too, though.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what it once was... August 26, 2012
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
Time magazine used to be a source of news, now it is just one photo spread after another. Most issues seem to be almost entirely dedicated to a single subject; and really, how many full page versions of the same person does one magazine need to have? The answer is that a photo costs less than paying reporters. If I wanted nothing but pictures, I would watch YouTube. I already gave up on Newsweek, and now I am letting Time magazine go as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Digital subscription NOT included! November 9, 2015
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal|Verified Purchase
I enjoy Time magazine. I saw that I could save some money with a subscription through Amazon. However I didn't realize that the digital subscription is not included. If you use the digital format then I encourage you to stay with Time because the subscription through Amazon won't save you any money

4.0 out of 5 stars Time Magazine May 31, 2014
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I've been reading Time for about 10 years now. It's my weekly newspaper that supplements my daily newspapers. It is well written and I like it's content. I particularly like the graphic charts they use with some of the articles. They really put dome information into a form that is very easy to understand.

There is too much fluff in the magazine. I realize they want to appeal to a younger generation but they made it too much like People magazine. It needs more in depth articles.

The publisher can help you with that - all you have to do is tell them.
