There is a company called " PMB Pacific Magazine Billing LP"

And they're sending out subscription renewal forms, simply hoping that people don not keep track of WHEN their subscriptions run out.

I do.

The form they sent me today, is for one that runs out in  May of 2019.

As I understand it, they WILL forward some ( not all) of your money to the  magazine. But they do not deserve ANY of it.

If I renew a magazine, I do so from whomever is producing/selling/marketing that magazine. I don't trust these companies that say they'll renew for you. I usually just let the magazine subscription expire because I don't want to pay full price for it the next year. If the company is interested and smart, they'll send me a marked down/cut rate price for another year. If not, I probably didn't need it anyway. The only magazines I do renew yearly are Banjo Newsletter and Bluegrass Unlimited (and I'm thinking about dropping that one).
