Cycle World- pathetic bastards!!!!

They sent me a "Delinquent Notice". I let my subscription run out last November. (BORING READ, behind Motor Cyclist in getting the "scoop, ect.)

They haven't sent me any free magazines, not even one. I just didn't re-subscribe.

The delinquent notice said "we are starting collection actions on your account".

Bully me to pay for your crappy boring rag?!? F YOU!

Cycle World is the suck, big time. Smile

Sorry, I think proper English is "LAME ASS COMPETITION".

Anyhow they suck.

Better just get the mag.  You don't want to louse up your credit rating.

LOL! Credit rating, what's that? I haven't had a credit card, car payments or any of that crap for over 20 years!

I had a similar experience. I laughed so hard but I also sent them a note just asking which genius they have on staff that thought up that brilliant marketing strategy.

I didn't take it personally and I still get the mag partly because of Peter Egan's column but it was pretty laughable, and mildly insulting to a long term subscriber.

Hilarious.

Today I got a "care package" from them...two VHS tapes and some other tchotchkes. Anyone want a refrigerator magnet? lol. I have 13 of them now.

Maybe they're trying to make peace with you?

LOL....I'd have a hard time being nice if someone told me that I was a deadbeat too though....
