I purchased a book in late May and the charge was immediately made to my credit card. In June when I hadn't received it I emailed them to ask where it was and no response. It's now July and I have sent another email to them to chase down my book or request a refund. We'll see how it goes but I'm not confident that I'll get a reply again. I would not recommend adding your credit card details on this site to purchase items unless you want to be charged and not receive anything. A good giveaway that I should have noticed was that they weren't charging any postage for sending to an Australian address. THIS IS A SCAM SITE AND I DEFINITELY WOULD AVOID IT.

I love the content in Scientific American. They tend to inspire and direct scientific topic coverage across media.

I got a gift subscription for a friend. It takes 6-8 weeks for the print copy to arrive but I was never warned. Their website had log in problems. The magazine had the wrong address printed on it and someone had scribbled the right postcode. I’m not sure if this will be a problem every month! My friend can’t access the online digital magazine and I’ve spend weeks and weeks emailing. 90% of the time they don’t answer. They answered once and didn’t address the problem. They answered another time and only solved one of my many problems and patronised me that I should use the same thread. I then replied to the same thread many times and they’re ignoring me. I thought America was the land of customer service. I’ve honestly have never experienced worse online service. In fairness to even say I’ve experienced “a service” feels like a stretch. What a bunch of incompetent crooks.

Yes. It's unacceptable experience, unreasonable and rude conduct.

I can't believe it but the editors of SA are commuinsts who favor stupidity and want our country to be run by inexperienced children who cannot recognize a scientific research paper from a communist propaganda paper.
Never will I subscribe to SA again.

Doesn't get any worse than this. Don't you ever think to get benefit out of it!
Too far to be gratifying and sweet...

I subscribed for American Scientific, print edition, and received exactly one issue -- the following five issues never arrived. Customer Service keep saying I should allow more time for the issues to arrive, but 8+ weeks of delivery time can't be right. I have asked for a refund, but only get nonsense standard replies. This borders on fraudulent behavior.

Online version of one of the absolutely best science coverage magazines. I've been a reader for over 50 years. Gold standard science, and when controversial areas are dealt with, to my thinking, those areas are handled rationally, with truth in balance.
