Sad news on a Free magazine...

It looks like the Kraft Food & Family magazine will no longer be free. I have recieved this magazine for over 4 years for free. So imagine my shock when I opened my mailbox to see my magazine wrapped in plastic, which made my happy cause, as you know, they like to throw in other freebies. But no such luck this time. Instead I got a bill from Kraft Foods. Ya it is only for $6.99 but come on. Money has been tight for me because hubby isn't traveling much. So it looks like this is going to be my last free issue.

That sucks..its been a while since I've gotten the magazine..BUT I loved it! I thought it was great. ..when I did get the magazine, I did buy the Kraft brand items needed to prepare the recipes...seems like they paid for the free magazine that way....at least mine (: Have you checked out the website? I LOVE it, I'm overseas now, so, I love being able to get online and see what ideas I can get! ..its kraftfoods.com Thanks for sharing! Take care!!

This is what comes up on their website:

 Yes! Get 1 year of food&family for $13.98. PLUS you'll get a
FREE copy of our Best-Loved Recipes Cookbook.

I get emails from them and read every single one of them. I love the emails just as much as the magazine. But come on (like another mother pointed out) $13.98 for 4 magazines. Even $6.99 is high for only 4 magazines. That's $3.00 an issue. They cost $3.95 an issue without a subscriptions. Not a good enough deal for me.

Oh this is sad, i loved that mag. i was just looking at some old copies last night, i saved a few and pulled what i wanted out of others....sorry to see it cost now....maybe we should tell Kraft our feelings....

At least we still have the website , which i visit at least twice a week.

I just received my mag in the mail today and it didn't have anything attached to it saying they were going to start charging for it!

MIne was still free this month. I wonder if its because you have received it for so long?

I called with a change of address a few months ago, they said they are going to start charging in cycles, eventually we'll all be paying :)
