We have no relationship with these companies, and we have no guarantee that subscriptions purchased from them will be sent to The Nation. We are actively investigating this situation.

For future reference, please be wary of the numerous companies that collect magazine subscriptions and renew them as a third-party agency. Note that we do use some legitimate subscription services to sell our publication. If you receive a renewal notice and are unsure of its authenticity, please call our subscriber-care department and order your renewal through them. You may contact subscriber services by calling our toll-free number, (800) 333-8536. The safest and most economically secure way is to place your order directly through our website or through the Nation's legitimate mailed notices.
