Okay buster, here's the deal. You seem full of p&v (as a friend just told me - piss & vinegar if you don't know...) as shown in this thread (http://www.gotapex.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=33602) . But, in answer to your question:
You did not follow directions or read the BestDealMagazine site well enough. If you had, you would have seen this info:
~100 GIFT CERTIFICATE SUBSCRIPTIONS - Choose from 100 magazine titles - one or all as a gift from our corporate sponsors. Pay only a $3.95 processing fee per magazine subscription. "
"(Titles of different categories of magazines) - Our corporate sponsors pay 50% of the cost of the magazines in this category."
Now, if you know that you are supposed to only pay $3.95 for a magazine through this site, which option would you click on? I'm betting the one that says "Pay only a $3.95 processing fee per magazine subscription."
Also, when you were ordering, what did you see on the right hand side? Say you were ordering Auto Racing Digest. It says "Balance due after Gift Certificate allowance has been applied: $12.95" So...to me, that would mean that the $12.95 is what you would pay for that magazine.
I won't say what I really feel like saying. I will just say that you should contact Apex and if he is feeling sympathetic, maybe he will try and help. Apex's Email ([email protected]
