What's this Zinio June edition?
Posted by PatrickW on Friday, April 24, 2020 5:05 PM

I have a subscription to have a magazine edition

I have received an email today from a company called Zinio offering me my June edition, by app, facebook or I phone.

I don't do any of these so how do I get my June issues that I have paid for please?

I would suggest that you talk to Kalmbach first.  I believe that Zinio offers the link for the digital Scale Auto.  I prefer the print edition myself.

Yes mrmike I prefer the printed version too. The return email requesting this from Zinio has bounced back as an email address not applicable!

Not too sure about this.  Sounds like someone is trying to scam you.  You may want to send an email to Kalmbach to verify the authenticity of that email and to let them know you do want a print copy.  Yes, I am very skeptical of any unsolicited emails or phone calls.

Thanks TarheelRick for your information.

Zinio have sent me  the way to access the June edition of the Scale Auto Mag. So most of you out there that are subscribers may also get your June edition this way.

I have contacted Kalmbach but had no answer as yet. I'm sure that I saw somewhere that due to the lockdown, publishers and or printers are also closed and a digital issue may well be produced.

I prefer the magazine in printed form so that I can read it anywhere, this is because we don't have I Phones or Facebook etc.

Get a inexpensive android tablet, with a 10" or so screen. You download and install the appropiate app that the mazine company uses (Zinio, PocketMags, etc..). When a new issue comes out, you just download it to the pad, and like a print version, you can take it and read it anywhere.

I prefer print, myself, but I just finished reading 40 years of back issues of a RR model magazine. Had them all on my Kindle, and just deleted each issue after reading it. Be a bit hard to lug 240 magazines around with me LOL

I had this from Kalmbach Customer Services just now - The email from Zinio is a genuine email.  We are offering the digital platform as well as the print version in light of current events.  The mail has been delayed with the COVID-19 virus.  The print version has been mailed but due to the mailing delays we are offering the digital version in addition to the print that you have subscribed to.

That is considerate of them, especially as foreign subscribers may well have to wait quite a while for their print copy to arrive.

Thanks hayes, I'm sure I saw that comment from Kalmbach somewhere. I'll look forward to the printed version so that I can read it anywhere.

Thanks for the clarification.  I am a bit techno-challenged with all the social media, so I also prefer something I can hold in my hand and keep for as long as I want.  I don't have to worry about data overages, or memory confines.

I ordered The Zineo on line edition and I hate it. I'm going print as soon as my subscription runs out.

I'm very pleased to report that my printed edition arrived yesterday in the post.

What a relief that it is so much easier to read and carry about than the digital version.
