Q: I saw the new issue in the local tackle shop why haven’t I receive my copy yet?
A: In an effort to get the magazines out as fast as possible once arrive at our distribution center we ship them all out right away. Subscribers are sent US mail (periodical rate), Tackle shops are sent FedEx, Newsstands are sent FedEx or a Pool Shipper to their respective distribution centers. Foreign and Premium subscribers copies are sent from San Ramon – Copies are sent FedEx to San Ramon then mail out First Class. (ETA – Subscribers two to five weeks, Tackle Shops one to five days, Newsstands three to five weeks, Foreign two to six weeks, Premium one to two weeks)
Q: Can I get my magazine the same time as the tackle shops?
A: No, sorry subscriber copies are mailed USPS periodical rate which takes form one to three weeks, plus there is mailing list processing time. Tackle shop issues are sent as bulk order via Fed X taking one to three days. We don’t see any reason to hold orders.
Q: Why does the magazine cost $7.95 when other magazines cost less?
A: Because good magazines cost more to produce. If we filled the magazine with advertisements our goal would be to send out as many as possible for as cheap as possible so the advertisers had to pay more not caring how good the articles are. In Bass Angler Magazine you will find more great articles and less ads than any other magazine. Our goal is to provide you a good resource to improve your bass fishing not a vehicle to sell only advertising.
