*------------cut here/end--------------------------------------------*

Catalogue Format Options:

1. 19-Part email- can be read by EVERYONE (~525 K Total).

2. For more advanced computer users: attached text file ~525K - you

must know how to download an attached text file and then be able to

open it with your word processor. If in doubt, don't ask for this

version. This isn't for internet *newbies.* Better to order option 1

and spend a few minutes pasting them into one whole text document

with your word processor, than to waste hours trying to figure how

to deal with this option.

3. For more advanced Macintosh computer users: compressed attached

text file, created with a Stuffit(tm) self-extracting archive (.sea),

~133K. Can be decompressed by any Macintosh computer user; no

special expansion software or knowledge of Stuffit (tm) needed. You

just double-click on the file icon and it automatically expands

(unstuffs). This is for more advanced mac computer users only, as

you still have to know how to deal with an attached file. It will cut

your download time by 75%. Expands out to the same ~525K file in

option #2. See option #2 for more info on what you will need to be

able to do.

4. For expert computer users: compressed attached text file, created with

Stuffit(tm), ~114K. Can be decompressed by any computer user who

has expansion software to decompress (expand) Stuffit(tm) (.sit) files.

This is for more advanced computer users only and will cut your

download time by 78%. Expands out to the same ~525K file in option

#2. See option #2 for more info on what you will need to be able to do.

Hi fellow 'netters,

My name is Michal Hirschberger and I recently started using a magazine

subscription club in the USA that has a FREE 1 yr. magazine subscription

deal with your first paid order- and I have been very pleased with them.

They have over 1,500 different USA titles that they can ship to any country

on a subscription basis. As for computer magazines from the USA, they

more of a selection than I ever knew even existed. They have magazines for

most every area of interest in their list of 1,500 titles.

Within the USA, for their USA members, they are cheaper than all their

competitors and even the publishers themselves. This is their price


Overseas, on the average, they are generally around one-fourth to one-half

of what the newsstands overseas charge locally for USA magazines. On some

titles they are as little as one-tenth of what the newsstands charge. They

feel that mgazines should not be a luxury overseas. In the USA, people

buy magazines and then toss them after reading them for just a few minutes

or hours. They are so cheap in the USA! Well, this company would like to

make it the same way for their overseas members. They are also cheaper

than all their competitors in the USA and overseas, including the

publishers themselves! This is their price guarantee. Around one-half

their business comes from overseas, so they are very patient with new

members who only speak limited English as a 2nd language.

Their prices are so cheap because they deal direct with each publisher and

cut-out all the middlemen.

They will send you their DELUXE EMAIL CATALOGUE (around 525K-big and

juicey) !)...if you completely fill out the form above. It has lists of

all the freebies, lists of all the titles they sell, titles broken down by

categories and detailed descriptions on nearly 1,200 of the titles that

they sell.

Please do not email me as I am just a happy customer and a *busy* student.

I don't have time to even complete my thesis in time, let alone run my

part-time software business! Please fill out the above form and carefully

follow the intructions above to get it to them via fax or smail.

They guarantee to beat all their competitors' prices. Sometimes they are

less than half of the next best deal I have been able to find and other

times, just a little cheaper - but I have never found a lower rate yet.

They assured me that if I ever do, they will beat it.

They have been very helpful and helped me with all my address changes as I

haved moved from one country to another.

They have a deal where you can get a free 1 yr. sub to a new magazine from

a special list of over 295 popular titles published in the USA. They will

give you this free 1 yr. sub when you place your first paid order with them

to a renewal or new subscription to any of the over 1,500 different popular

USA titles they sell.

They can arrange delivery to virtually any country and I think they have

clients in around 45 or 46 countries now. Outside the USA there is a

charge for FPH (foreign postage and handling) (on both paid and freebie

subs) that varies from magazine to magazine. I have found their staff to

be very friendly and courteous. They even helped me with an address change

when I moved from one country to another.

The owner thinks of his service as a "club" and his clients as "members"

(even though there is no extra fee to become a member - your first purchase

automatically makes you a member) and he is real picky about who he accepts

as a new member. When he sets you up as a new member, he himself calls

you personally on the phone to explain how he works his deal, or sometimes

he has one of his assistants call. He is kind of quirky sometimes - he

insists on setting up new members by phone so he can say hi to everyone (I

sure wouldn't want to have his phone bills!), but you can place future

orders (after your first order) via E-mail.

He has some really friendly young ladies working for him, who seem to know

just as much as he does about this magazine stuff. If you live overseas,

he will even call you there, as long as you are interested, but I think he

still makes all his overseas calls on the weekends, I guess cause the long

distance rates are cheaper then.

He only likes to take new members from referrals from satisfied existing

members and he does virtually no advertising. When I got set-up, they had

a 2-3 week waiting list for new members to be called back so that they

could join up. (Once you are an existing member, they help you immediately

when you call. ) I think they are able to get back to prospective new

members the same day or within a few days now, as they have increased

their staff. I am not sure about this.........but if you email the above

form to them, that is the way to get started!

They will send you their DELUXE EMAIL CATALOGUE (around 525K-big and

juicey) !)...if you completely fill out the form above. It has lists of

all the freebies, lists of all the titles they sell, titles broken down by

categories and detailed descriptions on nearly 1,200 of the titles that

they sell.

They then send you email that outlines how his club works and the list of

free choices that you can choose from, as well as the entire list of what

he sells; and then they will give you a quick (3-5 minute) friendly,

no-pressure no-obligation call to explain everything to you personally and

answer all your questions.

Once you get in, you'll love them. I do.


Michal Hirschberger

ps. please forward a copy of this message to all your friends on the net

who you think might be interested in it! It is a great deal! If you join

and then they join after you, you will earn a free 1 yr. subscription for

each new person you get to join after you join! If you exceed 25

referrals, they let you use them to give away as gifts, for Christmas,

Chanukah or any other occasion. Please be kind enough to mention my name

when you join. I will then get a free magazine for a year for referring


Thank you.
