No, he didn't answer it!
As the original poster and everyone else who has asked for an answer has said WE HAVE DIGITAL SUBSCRIPTIONS - i.e. NO MAILING LABEL
The form to switch from Digital to Physical demands a subscriber number, but there is no apparent way to find it - so how do we find it?
I wish people would bother to read the posts in a thread and take time to understand them before posting useless and unrelated answers or snarky coments about how it has already been answered when it hasn't - and if you don't know the answer DON'T POST!
Krypt answered it below. On the mailing label on back of the magazine.
Ok. If your a digital subscriber and you want to know you're subscriber number call customer service and ask them or visit the contact us section on this site and select the just have a question link. Include your name, email phone and mailing address and request your subscriber number.
And that doesn't work. They just pull the same nonsense that's been said in this thread "why do you want it" "Look on the mailing label" and my personal favorite - pointing me to this thread in the forums for "answers" that aren't here - so I understand complete why others are asking and insisting this hasn't been answered - because it hasn't and it obviously wont be. I have been trying to change my subscription to physical since back around September and it's just a pathetic runaround - and it's refreshing to know that Game informer considers this a joke and refuses to take steps to fix it - provide the information customers have asked for, or fix the online form so that this information isn't needed for the switch.
So I will say again - if you can't actually provide the information the OP, myself, and others asked for - stop giving useless answers please. It does no good.
seriously whats wrong here? I cant find a straight answer anywhere and the digital version sucks
just ok? how about some answers?
I'll throw my name into the bucket of people looking for this. There should be a reasonable way to find the subscriber number than the physical magazine (which we don't have because we're trying to view it ONLINE. That's the point to this whole thing. If we had a physical copy we'd just read that.) Why can't each of those email reminders provide our subscriber number? How hard would that be?
@arsonfly, That's a great idea. It's not technically hard. What's hard is getting it done with the work that we already have on our plate and the few people we have on our team but I'll see what I can do.
As for an answer to "how do I find out my subscriber number?"
* You can find it on the print magazine as answered below.
* If you don't have a print magazine, you can go to Contact Us and send a message (along with your name, email, phone and address) requesting your subscriber number.
* You can call customer care and ask them to provide it to you.
Looks like that's what I'll have to do. It's not ideal, but you have to work with what you've got, right? I appreciate the polite reply. Looking back I was a little rude. I was a little frustrated at the time and I apologize for that.
I understand, thank you for understanding why we haven't fixed the problem already. It's frustrating for us too when we can't just Fix it.
thanks man this was exactly what i was looking for.
Instead of going through all those steps, is there any way the subscriber number can be on the Gamestop Powerup card? If so, which number is it? Is it an 8 digit number, cause the number under the barcode is 13 digits.
I'm sure there's a way, but it's not there right now.
