I had a subscription and then noticed a new charge of $22.98 to my charge card without my authorization. I texted the address and asked to cancell and refund the charge to my account. Looking at charge card bill it is on there but no credit back to account! Why would I want to pay $22.98 when I got preferred customer discount voucher in the mail for only $10.!?

Noticed a charge from "RDA* Family Handyman 8008544961 NY $19.98" on my credit card. I did NOT authorize this, nor did I renew my Family Handyman Magazine. Furthermore, when I went on the Family Handyman website to see if they had somehow auto-renewed 7 months after the expiry date, the website shows my current subscription status as "expired" and my last issue shows a delivery date of over 6 months ago. This smacks of a spurious charge. I emailed Family Handyman's customer support and got a generic response "we are sending it to a customer service rep". I called my credit card company and they recommend if Family Handyman does not respond in 3-5 business days, to shut the credit card down. i recommend to all magazine subscribers: DO NOT EVER give them your credit card. Ask to "Bill me later" and send them a check. This way they cannot misuse your credit card to auto-renew or otherwise.

*Update* - - - Beware of past gift subscriptions. AGAIN, pay by check (see reasons above)- - -It turns out, I had ordered a gift subscription at the same time as my own subscription for my son-in-law ans it auto-renewed 6 months after the expiration date.

See Dan's comments above. I just got charged AGAIN after renewing a friend's gift subscription. ALWAYS renew subscriptions by check.

Yes, it was a suspicious surprise charge to my credit card on 9/30 for the 12/31/2021 renewal. I did not recognize the name because they fall into prolific junk email versus something that looks important, and they might have included a renewal notice within their many emails that I deleted. It's actually a good magazine, my terrible customer communication.

I have tried to stop receiving and billed for the Handyman magazine. I can't get them to STOP charging my card. Was informed to cancel the card. Does anyone know just how much trouble you are asking for in changing every area that card is attached to due to the lack of support for a third-party hustler?

A charge of $31.73 appeared on my bank card. I’m trying to track it down, but thus far I think it could be a renewal, but I didn’t sign up for automatic renewal on my son-in-law’s gift subscription.
