Now, every other page – literally – is an advertisement for a pharmaceutical product of some kind. The first thing I do when I receive my monthly copy is I rip out the ads. In doing so I’m usually left with LESS THAN HALF of the pages I started with. I feel like I’m paying for a monthly subscription to pharmaceutical ads. “Now, That’s Outrageous!”
I’m so sad and disappointed. I won’t be renewing my subscription next year and I feel like I’ve lost a lifelong friend. I hope my review helps you in your decision.

Overall..if it weren’t for the ads, I would continue to enjoy this magazine because I love the humor, easy reading stories, information, etc.
However…when my subscription ends they keep calling and calling and CALLING me about renewing. Or saying “We hope you are enjoying your subscription to Readers Digest”..(when I’m not subscribed anymore). I tell them no, I’m not going to renew..the next day I come home with three calls on my answering machine from them. This is not a one time occurrence either.
The magazine itself is good. However I think they should either lower the price or drop some of the ads.

Also, make sure you get on the RD website and change your privacy preferences; like other second-rate companies who like to abuse customers, they implicitly assume you want to be spammed by them and have them rent your information out to third parties.
