Subscription delivery timing

Thanks to Mr Hollingworth (that's what he makes us all call him - goes with the executive chair and special pants) for creating this thread. All interesting information for yours truly.
Firstly, NZ subs are distributed independantly in that country. i.e we send a bunch of mags over and they are dispatched by our distributor. This does not explain the delay, so i will look into that. c0nc0n are you saying you rang and spoke to G & G? when was that and when did they say it would arrive?
I am also really interested in subscribers from outside Metro areas and the East coast. So if you live anywhere outside Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane, please let me know about your experiences. Thanks to those who have already.
Cheers,
Phil



Emailed them last Thursday, they said I can expect it in the next week. I just got it this afternoon, so it's alright.

Still haven't received mine yet. First time ever I've had any problems, besides it being delivered after it has hit the newsagents, but that's the norm.

Time to send an email I think.

I live an hour outside of the Brisbane CBD, and I usually get mine a day after it goes on sale in the newsagents, but I still haven't gotten 89 yet, so it will probably arrive tomorrow.
It's a bit disappointing going into the newsagents and seeing the magazine for sale when you know it could be a couple of days yet before it arrives in the post :(

I was someone you'd have liked
Got an old guitar I had for years i'd let you buy
And I'll tell you something else
That you ain't dying enough to know

It's consistently arrived late here in Perth until the current issue, when it beat the newsie by a considerable margin.

Keep up whatever you did this month!



You got yours already??

Im still waiting for mine, and we are not that far apart.

I am still in the South East Metro Area of Perth.

Just out of curiousity, having only just got a sub 3 days before 89 hit the stands, should I wait to see if I get one in the mail or just hit the news agency now?

In theory, subs should arrive as early as the Friday before onsale, and certainly no later than onsale itself.



Allways for me, except for a couple of hickups, it's been the couple of days before the newsagent date.
which to me is just peachey!

friday nite atomic isnt a good idea tho... how else will we ever be able to get out and engage in relations with other persons, thus enabling the furtherment, and continuation of the human race?!

I'm not sure how fast these things get sorted - you may be best off getting one at the newsagents for now.

Fuck, that's just not on.

And Hawkey, we actually don't have a lot of control, but we do know that subs copies should always arrive before newstand.
