A review for the SUBSCRIPTION, not the magazine.
on April 19, 2013
When I saw this deal, I got really excited because its my favorite magazine but its so expensive I almost never buy it. So I purchased it, and then I started looking at the reviews. I saw a lot of 'it takes SO LONG to come', and this didn't make me too happy.
I purchased this subscription mid-march; my 'April' issue didn't come till 3 weeks later. I considered this slow but not terrible as some other reviewers said. It DOES say it will take 4-6 weeks for the first issue to come.
And today, looking through my mail, I found the MAY issue - its April 19th, and it's only been 1-2 weeks since I've gotten the first issue.
So I think that the first issue will probably take awhile to come, but after that they come more regularly and more proportionate to the time they sell it in stores (April issue sells in March, May issue in April, etc.)
Overall I'm very happy with my cosmopolitan subscription via Amazon. And if you don't like the magazine, perhaps you shouldn't purchase a subscription. It's kind of unfair to buy a subscription to a magazine you don't like and then post reviews about how crappy it is.
