Taste of Home Magazine $2 Subscription

by Tara Kuczykowski on September 18, 2009 · 39 comments

Taste of Home Subscription
I'm always on the lookout for new recipes, and I find a lot of great ones in my Taste of Home magazine. I've never seen it priced this low, so I thought I'd share this offer so all my DSM foodies can get in on it!

Get a one-year Taste of Home subscription for just $2. The site mentions that it's a weekly special, so I'm not sure exactly when it ends. I'd recommend ordering ASAP if you're interested! New subscriptions only.

Thanks, Cindy!

A friend e-mailed me this deal last week Saturday. So, if it really is a "weekly" deal, it will be disappearing soon.

Has anyone ever ordered from this magazine company before and received their subscription? I've never heard of this company.


3 Melanie @ Mel, A Dramatic Mommy September 18, 2009 at 2:29 pm

Thanks! I'm giving it a try.


4 Jen from Germany September 18, 2009 at 2:29 pm

When I was teaching, I had a mom who gifted me this subscription for a year. It is fabulous! I am so excited about this deal. I never had any problems with my subscription when I extended it or cancelled it!


5 Judy September 18, 2009 at 2:29 pm

I ordered magazines from this company in the past and never received them. They do not have a contact number, so I tried to email them and they never responded.


6 Jennifer September 18, 2009 at 2:29 pm

Woman's Day is $3. Checkout is through Google so I'm not concerned about it.


7 Christina S. September 18, 2009 at 2:30 pm

This is such an awesome deal! I'm not a new subscriber, so I can't take advantage of it.

But .... If you haven't subscribed to this magazine yet, DO IT NOW. It's packed full of "real-life" recipes.

@$ Money Savin' Momma$

I've subscribed for 13 years now. I've never had a problem. I also subscribe to one of their sister publications, "Simple & Delicious" (formerly known as "Quick Cooking."


9 Tara Kuczykowski September 18, 2009 at 2:32 pm

There is contact information on the home page.


10 $ Money Savin' Momma $ September 18, 2009 at 2:35 pm

I've heard of Taste of Home, but never of "lowpricesubs" - my concern was specifically about that company, and if anyone had ordered a magazine through them and received it.

Thanks, Tara, for the contact info. I do find it interesting that their contact info is via gmail, rather than a company account. It makes me question this company even more. I am not saying this company is or is not legitimate, just pointing out the reasons I am questioning it right now and why I would like to hear from others who have purchased and received magazines from lowpricesubs.

I checked them out on the BBB and there are two listings. Both have an F rating.


12 Jen from Germany September 18, 2009 at 2:51 pm

I just placed my order. Since it is through Googlecheckout, I am not worried. We shall see whether I get the subscription or not. It is a great deal folks!


13 Amy September 18, 2009 at 2:59 pm

Is there a shipping charge & tax?


14 lcarswell September 18, 2009 at 3:09 pm

Search "lowpricesubs scam" on Google and you’ll find a multitude of complaints. They have two profiles with the Better Business Bureau that both have “F” ratings. The contention of the complaints is that the company does not fulfill most of the subscriptions, but few people complain because, well it “only $2.” I recommend you do some research before ordering.


15 Sarah September 18, 2009 at 3:44 pm

I wish I would have read all of your comments before I purchased 2 of these subscriptions (one as a gift). Seems like this company may be a little shady. I'm thinking of calling my credit card company and stopping the payment on this.


16 Lisa September 18, 2009 at 4:26 pm

Here is their BBB report:

It looks like some people do not get their magazines.


17 Jennifer September 18, 2009 at 5:19 pm

I have received several free subscriptions from Lowpricesubs, including Weight Watchers, Blender, and Radar. I've never had a problem with them. Of course, I have never ordered one where you have to pay.


18 Barb September 18, 2009 at 7:06 pm

Well, I was about to order this, but glad I am getting advice to the contrary from some of you. I would love to have it, but it sounds a little fishy coming from this Thanks all!


19 Siobhan September 18, 2009 at 8:00 pm

I wish I'd read the comments first. I just placed an order, read the comments and just contacted my Credit Union. They told me they can't cancel the payment because it wasn't done under fraudulent circumstances (they didn't steal my info) and I would have to contact the company to do that. Great.


20 elisa September 18, 2009 at 9:10 pm

I placed an order and then decided to read the comments. I was very unhappy with what some people said so I went back to my order confirmation page and it said I had 15 minutes to cancel my order and not get charged so I did cancel and it said that my order was cancelled and that my credit card would not be charged, so if anyone decides to read this after they order you can still cancel up to 15 minutes after you order.


21 Stephanie September 19, 2009 at 10:12 am

I almost ordered it too. Thanks, I thought the website looked pretty bad. What a scam!


22 stacy September 19, 2009 at 1:03 pm

I have ordered from them in the past and although it did take a long time to start the subscription I did recieve without any problems.


23 Joanne September 20, 2009 at 2:13 pm

I ordered it too (before reading the comments). I'm going to be optimistic about the outcome. I know sometimes when you go through a third party it takes a lot longer to get started, but does eventually. So I'm hoping that is what goes on here. (And at only $2/year, it's not like I spent the whole $24/year.)

FYI on my google order page it lists the address of lowpricesubs as
po box 246
pilot knob MO 63663


24 Jini September 26, 2009 at 9:45 am

I am excited to receive this subscription, BUT after subscribing I am getting lots & lots of junk mail :(


25 wagenfour December 17, 2009 at 11:10 pm

I ordered 6 subscriptions for Christmas gifts and not one person got their's yet. This can be a little embarrassing for me if they don't get it and it already went through my credit card.
I also emailed them and never heard back from them.
I am still hoping that they will honor their committment and mail out the subscriptions.


26 Diane December 27, 2009 at 9:51 pm

I, too, ordered the "Taste of Home" for $2 prior to reading the reviews. Has anyone ordered via this special from lowpricesubs and actually GOTTEN a magazine yet?


27 wagenfour December 27, 2009 at 10:10 pm

I left my comment 10 days ago. Update; Not one of my 6 orders for Taste of Home was delivered. So much for it being an early Christmas gift.


28 Lauren December 30, 2009 at 3:32 pm

I too have not received my Taste of Home subscription, nor have the 3 people who I ordered gift subscriptions for. I e-mailed the company but never received any response. I have just put in a dispute claim with my credit card company. Such a shame, as I was really looking forward to this magazine.


29 Diane January 5, 2010 at 5:50 pm

I RECEIVED MY FIRST COPY!! I had ordered the $2 subscription before reading all the negative comments, so I had just kind of accepted that I would never get it. But SURPRISE!! My first copy arrived yesterday - January 4, 2010. It is the Dec/Jan issue and has lots of yummy looking cake & cookie recipes! I had placed my order on Sept. 19, 2009.... so that means it took just about 3 1/2 months to receive my first issue. That's slow, but it's not unbelievably out of the ordinary. So don't give up hope!


30 wagenfour January 5, 2010 at 8:54 pm

What a surprise. So far I heard from 3 people that they finally got their subscription to Taste of Homes yesteday.
Finally !!!!!!!!!!!!!!


31 Lauren January 6, 2010 at 6:51 am

I ordered mine on Sept 19 too, so hopefully mine will come soon. I think the thing that frustrates me is that I contacted the company via e-mail 3 weeks ago to find out the status of my order and never got any sort of response from them. Even if I do get my magazine, I will never order from them again, as their customer service seems to be non-existent.


32 Krissy January 11, 2010 at 4:10 pm

do not order from these people. I ordered Sept 19 and it took until Jan 5 to get a refund.


33 Lauren January 13, 2010 at 6:07 am

Still no magazine & no refund for me. I'm contacting my credit card company & will go about getting a refund that way. I'm also planning to contact the Better Business Bureau & file a complaint.


34 Tammy January 22, 2010 at 12:00 pm

I ordered mine on 9/21 and have sent NUMEROUS emails and have no response at all. I also am contacting the Better Business Bureau and credit card company. I even researched the owner of the website and sent a direct email to him but he will not respond.


35 Lauren January 22, 2010 at 4:27 pm

Just a follow up to say I was able to get a refund by going through my credit card company. Never again will I order from this company.


36 Laurie February 11, 2010 at 11:52 am

I just today called Discover to file a dispute. I called the phone number and no one answers. The website has not been updated since Thanksgiving! I did use a computer generated number that discover does to hide your real information, b/c I was suspicious.


37 Laurie February 11, 2010 at 11:53 am

I forgot to say: I ordered Rachael Ray for $5 on October 24th 2009 and haven't received anything yet, and my latest (and last) RR mag came the other day w/ no renewal on the label.


38 wagenfour February 11, 2010 at 12:00 pm

All 6 of my orders for Taste of Homes for gifts were finally received at the same time. It did take quite a while though. I think I ordered them in September. I did write to them though and told them if I did not hear from them I was notifying the Better Business Bureau. Right after that the subscriptions came through.


39 carol February 28, 2010 at 10:17 am

I also bought the "taste of home", thru google, then in pilot knob, missouri. this was in sept 2009, and have never received a thing. google will not help, and of course the company is a scam. they are still in business. i have turned them over to the BBB and the attorney generals office. in hopes that they may close them down. all you have to do is check out the complaints againse the company, (which i should have done FIRST) my fault.
