1.0 out of 5 stars National Geographic Magazine subscription 27 July 2009
I assumed incorrectly that I would be receiving Nat Geo by now - 1 month later - but no. First I received a small cardboard box with a card inside and an activation number to be either sent by post or input to a website. The web address was incorrect. I phone the ?helpline? and was given another web address. This didn't work - code not valid. I rang again and was told that amazon activation codes didn't become active for at least a week after the sale was registered by amazon with Nat Geo, and in any event I won't receive Nat Geo magazines until September at the earliest. Anyway I waited a few more days, but still no luck. I've since sent the card by post and heard no more. I'm trusting to luck that the magazines will start arrive in due course. Not very happy!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Custer Service Nil points 3 Nov 2010
This is one of World's great magazines and started me off on my career nearly 50 years ago through a subscription bought by my parents. It came direct from Washington DC and I drooled over the adverts as well as the articles. I have bought two of my grandchildren subsciptions to NG Kids magazine. The eldest one is now 11 and asked if he could have a subscription to the 'Grown Up' version. I obliged of course and thought that 2 months advance would surfice. No such luck! The welcome pack sent to him included an activation code that does not work and getting info from NG makes getting blood out of a stone seem simple. I would emphasis that this is not Amazon's fault = they have been very helpful and prompt in responding to emails. I would advise them to drop this magazine from their catalogue like a hot potato unless there is a major step change in NG's customer service (or non-service more accurately) Their payment and delivery service is appalling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, but check other options 15 Jan 2009
The magazine is flawless (although if you're more a pick and flick person, buy one in the shops first to see if you like it as it is mainly reading). However, check the Nat Geo website (dot com, not the UK site) first for international subscriptions. I think it's a lot cheaper than Amazon or any shops here do it for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy... 12 Oct 2008
> Not received after 4 months wait
I ordered my last subscription through Nat Geo and had all sort of problems as well and you always have to "allow 10-12 weeks to ..." . It's not Amazon's fault I think.

I just don't understand it: such a great magazine, but terrible subscription service.

Don't get me wrong. Subscribing Nat Geo is always a good idea.

1.0 out of 5 stars Get it somewhere else! 13 Dec 2010
Like many others here I was very disappointed with the whole process for this.
I foolishly didn't read the reviews first.
I bought it for my sister as a birthday present.
The package came through fine and i forwarded it on to my sister.
She tried using the instructions to enable her subscription.

1 - The url for activiation in the pack doesn't exist.
2 - When you finally manage to trawl through the site the code doesn't work.
3 - She contacted National Geographic customer support (and is still waiting a month later).
4 - I contacted Amazon who, to their credit, sent another pack out very swiftly.
5 - Received the new pack...(same thing again!)

Amazon have refunded me and i've tried going through the National Geographic website this time...still waiting to see how that goes.
While people blame National Geographic for this (and it certainly seems their customer service leaves a lot to be desired) I still think Amazon need to take responsibility...they are the company i bought the item from and they sent me a message saying they wanted to refund my order while they investigated the issue...yet it appears the item is still for sale!
