Ordered one subscriber copy on the 10th before I posted it here. Still no cancellation email, and my CC was charged on the 14th. Even put a note on my mailbox for the mail carrier not to bend anything, but haven't seen it yet.

Came here for the same reason. They take forever to let you know they can't fulfill your order and now we have to run around and try to find a copy in the wild. Fucking dumbasses...

BTW, do you remember when you ordered? I ordered late on the 12th. Maybe we can figure out a cut off if other people get their cancellation emails...


I didn't place my order until the 13th.....

Several people have mentioned checking Best Buy but has anyone actually found it there? I wasn't aware BB even carried magazines.

If anyone has one they have or could get, PM me.


I know this issue seems to be turning into a collector's item of sorts, but if someone's able to snag a few extra and wants to sell one, I would gladly pay a little extra for your troubles.

Just got emailed that my Dec 11 order was canceled and will be issued a refund.

Heading to a bigger city this weekend, will make a couple stops and see if I can find one.

I've now checked 4 stores back home in IL and 3 stores here in Phoenix, no luck. If these dipshits notified me earlier, I probably could have found a copy but I'm guessing they're long gone by now. No way I'm paying $30 on eBay...

Barnes and noble is where I found my copy, but I also bought it a few days after it came out.

A local Wal-Mart had 4 copies last time I checked. All 4 had minor dings. Let me know if any of you are ok with dings and I'll pick them up next time I am in the store. I can do cost plus shipping (including the cost of a bubble envelope which will be probably around $1.50-$2.00 alone).

Finally found a store tonight that still had 3 copies still on the shelf. Picked up 2 of them, 1 to open and 1 to keep sealed.

Just for the record I did look last Friday when I got groceries, they had a copy of Nov. 2012 the second to last issue, but none of the last issue. Hope most everyone who wanted one, actually found a copy somewhere.

Does anyone else still have an order with futureus that has not been cancelled yet? I was charged on the 14th, but still haven't received my lone subscriber copy.

Order shipped the 13th according to Future but I still haven't gotten mine. I picked up one copy at the newsstand but I want to keep it sealed.

Interesting that your 13th order shipped but my 11th order was cancelled. :cry:

Is that according to tracking in your account, or did you ask them? I didn't create an account so I will have to contact them to ask, but if it's online tracking it might have been updated automatically when they processed it even if they haven't physically shipped them yet. I doubt it takes that long to arrive once shipped. Hopefully they are just a little backlogged and not just forgot about these orders, or we both have thieves for mailmen.

I ordered it on the 11th when I couldn't find it in stores. I emailed them to find out the status. No reply on my follow up yet. I actually ordered 1 newsstand and 1 subscriber and the service rep said they were out of the subscriber.

Curious how did they ship it, in an envelope? And did you get both or just newsstand?

I also emailed them, and they told me it shipped the 13th, but they are sold out so if I didn't get it, all they can do is credit me. I ordered one subscriber on the 10th, so that was almost right after it became available online.

Also curious, how long after you emailed them did you receive it? I wonder if they only sent it after you emailed them.

I just got the newsstand edition after ordering both. It shipped in an unpadded orange envelope via USPS.

Pleasantly surprised that my subscriber copy showed up today. In an envelope and not folded at all. Emailed them to let them know they don't need to credit me.
