What issue will I receive?  TOP

Your order on MyMagStore is issue specific. 

We will send you the specific issue shown in your shopping cart during check out. 

• Check the cover image and issue description carefully. 

• If we are unable to send a specific issue, we will cancel the order & promptly refund your money.



Is the cover shown the one I will receive?  TOP

New issues are scanned at the same time the magazine is received, and the new cover and issue date are uploaded overnight. Descriptions are not updated regularly, so the specific content of an issue is not be given, but browse the covers! Some magazines will sometimes have multiple covers!  

If you need a specific cover, email info@mymagstore.com


How do you ship and what does it cost?  TOP

We currently ship Priority Mail through the United States Postal Service (USPS).
This is the best combination of speed and cost available. You will almost always have your order in 2-3 business days.

For US orders, the Shipping Charge is $7.50 per shipment, no matter how many magazines. 

A few magazines are oversized and do not qualify for the flat rate shipping- this is noted on the product pages. 

We no longer ship international orders outside the United States.
If you need overnight delivery, contact info@mymagstore.com for shipping cost.


Can you ship to prisons?  TOP

Yes, we now ship ordered magazines to inmates at prison facilities.

Welcome former InmateMAGS.com customers to MyMagStore.com –
In partnership with the magazines store, Bulldog News, MyMagStore provides access to the kinds of single copy magazines inmates like, while still offering the same level of service and care inmate families have come to expect from inmatemags.com.  

Addresses for inmate orders MUST INCLUDE THE

Can you ship to servicemen overseas?  TOP

Yes, we can ship to APO/FPO addresses.  

The price to ship to these addresses is the same: $7.50 for postage.

Do you ship Internationally?  TOP

MyMagStore no longer ships magazines or subscriptions to addresses outside the United States.


Can you get a current issue of a title that you don't now carry?  TOP


In general, the answer is NO.  

Almost all magazines are distributed as soon as they come from the publisher (it is a time sensitive product), so usually other titles are not available to us through our suppliers.

Can you get back issues of magazines?  TOP

The answer is NO more than 90% of the time.  

When new issues arrive, the old issues are returned to the publisher for credit. You can email your request and we will let you know. 

Do you accept returns?   TOP

Due to the timely nature of the material, the answer is NO.  If we shipped you a different title from the one you ordered, we will, of course, make it right.

Is my credit card charged if you don't have a copy of the newspaper or magazine I ordered?  TOP

No, your card is not charged until after one of our employees puts the requested material into an envelope and prepares a shipping label. Your credit card is charged only when your order is ready to ship and only for the magazines sent out to you.

Do you carry magazines not shown on the website?  TOP

We have many more magazines than are shown on the website. 

Our brick and mortar store sells magazines all day so we can sell out of popular issues.  Titles on the web site are ones that we know we have in the store. 

If you are looking for a title you don't see on the site, email us at info@mymagstore.com so we can research and let you know if the title is available to buy.

How many copies of a magazine can I buy?  TOP

If you would like multiple copies of a single title, we usually have at least 2 copies of every title in stock. For more popular titles we will have a good stock on hand. Please contact us by email or phone if you'd like more than 2 copies of the same title.

Inmate Orders
Many prison facilities have a maximum total number of magazines (often 5) allowed in one shipment so check with your facility before ordering.
