    This asked me for my credit card number and said that it was going to charge me a $0.99 processing fee. I elected not to follow through with it. Just FYI for others.

    • Hmm… that’s weird. Thank you for letting us know. Did this happen to anyone else?

    • Meg says:

      Have you ever subscribed to Real Simple and/or been a RewardsSurvey member already? That makes a difference. From my experience, this offer is for new RewardsSurvey members who have never subscribed to Real Simple. Sorry you’re having issues! -Meg, MSM Team

  • Mireille says:

    It was free on mine. I have $130 on rewards but no magazines I am interested in right now.

  • Kelsey says:

    I did this last time you posted this and have yet to receive a magazine. ?

    • Meg says:

      I think we last posted at the end of June. Magazine subscriptions usually take 12-16 weeks for the first issue to arrive. That’s pretty standard. I would set a reminder to look for it at the end of September or mid-October. If you don’t have it by then, something is up. But I bet it’ll eventually come! It always feels like forever! 🙂 -Meg, MSM Team

  • Teri says:

    I just did it, got $30, and two magazines including Real Simple. Thank you!

  • Jessica says:

    In the fine print it says it charges a .99 processing fee. And it automatically renews your subscription.

    • Meg says:

      There isn’t a processing fee when you trade in points to get this for free. You don’t even have to provide billing information. I signed up for this free magazine a few months back and never paid anything. And tons of readers have without having to pay a processing fee. I hope that helps! 🙂 -Meg, MSM Team

      • Jessica Cooper says:

        That’s what I tried to do. My total in magazines was less than the points I earned in the survey.

        • Meg says:

          Hmmm. That’s really weird. The survey is for $30 and Real Simple costs $20. You should have more than enough. I’m so sorry you’re having issues! I just clicked on the link in the post, and it’s still showing a $30 survey for new members. -Meg, MSM Team
