Customer Reviews

Deceptive and a new ripoff policy

I'd rather view this magazine on my iPad, and have for several
years now as part of my print subscription. (Have subscribed since its inception!)

I returned from an extended absence and sat down on the couch hoping for a pleasant session getting up to speed with my subscription. Hmmm. All signed in yet it was impossible to access my digital issues. Deleted, signed out, signed in, changed password wtc etc. Kept getting the message that I already had a digital copy. Aargh. I know that!! So frustrating.

I then emailed and got this auto-message explaining their new greedy policy:

We apologize for the difficulty that you have been experiencing with your digital access. We show that your digital access is no longer active. Due to the new way that our digital subscriptions are being provided to our customers, you will need to place a renewal order that includes a print and digital offer. You can place your order through our web site or contact customer service for your renewal options.

Complete scam

According to my print issue I'm also supposed to get digital access to Real Simple. I created a digital account as directed, but instead of getting access I was sent to a renewal screen. If digital access is extra then be honest and tell subscribers that. DON'T LIE. Thanks to this deception I will not be renewing my subscription. I don't want any part of this scam. Time Inc should be ashamed of themselves- saying Real Simple is about 'Life Made Easier' then making subscribers jump through hoops for a con that does not deliver what it promises.

Love the magazine, but app is problematic

I love REAL SIMPLE and look forward to every issue. Unfortunately, I have had some problems with the app such as having to sign in frequently (which does not happen with other magazine apps like BH&G or The New Yorker) and very slow download times. Definitely not life-threatening problems, but annoying, and makes life more complicated - not simple!
