Default how do I cancel my Maxim subscription?

I know Penthouse was part of this magazine sales thingy where you call one number that handles multiple mag subscriptions... is Maxim like that too? anyone have any experience with them? I received 12 free issues of four different magazines but I cancelled all of them and now they stated sending me Maxim!! must be an error, because I'm getting it for free too (unless they bill me at the end... fuckers). the problem is, although I'm getting it free, one of my roommates always takes it up to his room so I don't see the pointof being subscribed now, so I want to cancel it.

This thread is old but the added information is good.

1) You're getting something free, don't complain.
2) Take the magazine and stab your roommate thru the heart.
3) ???

So whats the big deal? Just consider it cancelled since your roommate is reading it.

I once had a subscription to Maxim. Didnt like it that much.

I called up the number on the Staff page, quick and easy.
Same with Penthouse, Barely Legal, and Hustler.

The only one that was a real problem was Playboy.
They didnt make finding their number very easy. Eventually I fired off an email at every address I could find. One of them wrote back with the actual unsubscribe phone number.

I wish Rockstar and Perfect 10 still printed their magazines.

it's not like i don't know how. it's more like their site is a piece of shit, I can't even find the phone numbers in the mag because my roommates take them, and google searches yield links that lead to unsubscribable faggotry.

Mine runs out in 2025. Free subscription renewals, ftw!

Sadly, when they stopped publishing Stuff magazine, they sent out something that said no worries, they'd just tack what was left of my Stuff subscription to my Maxim subscription. Then I got a letter from Maxim saying that since I was already subscribed way past their maximum length allowed, they weren't going to tack it on after all.

I was somewhat miffed over that, until I remembered that I hadn't paid anything for the Stuff subscription either (and think that one was going to expire in 2019!!). Damn it, though, I was looking forward to reading Maxim for free until my 70th birthday!! :laugh:

Default Maxim Cancellation Phone Number:

Maxim Cancellation Phone Number: 1-800-829-5572

This is the only thing that ACTUALLY worked to cancel Maxim from being delivered to our house. None of the above links, or connecting links, worked.

Cancel Maxim Magazine: 1-800-829-5572

I think you have a bigger problem than not being able to cancel Maxim.
