How'd you know my subscription was coming up for renewal with the July issue? Great deal...and thanks, CM!

PS. By the way, the total amount for my subscription was $16.79, excluding FW CB, after applying the code.

The wife has been asking for the printed version so this comes at a good time. Thanks!

I personally would rather go directly through the publisher and pay a little more (without the middle-man and possible miscommunication). The reviews on BBM are not so good, so based upon that and my gut feeling, think I'll pass. Don't want to get caught-up in a dispute between BDM and CR and myself, back and forth and never receive sub but pay for it. Thanks anyway FW.

Reviews on FW's own coupon site:

BDM Reviews on FW

BBB gives them an A- but I'm still not sure.

Resellerratings gives them a 2.17/10 out of 88 reviews. While there are several 5/5's the 1/5's bother me, thus their 2.17 rating and my concern.

In this economy, even at $16.79 and a possible loss, I can't take the chance on foul-ups. Also, I understand BDM won't allow any complaints on non-delivery for 24-weeks!

I don't know. Been ordering from BDM for years without incident. We gave up the print but thinking of it as this is a great deal.

gave up on this facade of unbiased reporting after
the baby seat and paint scandal they had

they blamed a "testing" vendor for inaccurate results

give me a break..............

I've also ordered from best deal magazines and have never experienced a problem. Not sure about that 24 week thing as I've inquired about my order as early as 7 weeks and they've always provided me with my status. Actually, my last order for Consumer Reports was through them and I had no trouble at all.

Fantastic magazine and a great price, THANKS!!!!!

- not as hot as under 15 but still a good deal. Please Update your Post OP as the price has changed.

I'm trying to research cars. The print magazine doesn't much matter to me, but online access to the CR website is vital, and I don't want to wait for several days. If I go through BDM to save a few $$, is there a delay in getting subscriber access to the website, or is it immediate ?
Thanks for posting this info if you know the answer.

Access to the website does not come automatically with a print subscription. It's extra. Going rate, even though CR markets it as a "special rate for our best subscribers," is $12/year.
