Before purchasing, I read the reviews that were on the site and really thought about it. I had heard about the VIP Membership on the Podcast - which is really good BTW!! I am already a subscriber to the magazine and there were some issues changing over to the VIP when I already was receiving a subscription but FTM said they'd extend my magazine for the time I have left on the regular subscription part. Customer Service folks were helpful on that but it did take a couple e-mails - in their favor, they were all answered PROMPTLY! It also looks like the comment of not being able to find the premium articles quickly in the earlier reviews has been addressed as there is now a drop down for the articles from the Home screen. I got into over a dozen with no problem and am looking forward to going back and spending a lot of time here. In my case, I've only been receiving the magazine for about a year so there's lots I've missed. If you have all your back issues, not sure how useful one might find this. I haven't purchased anything yet but am interested in a few things so I'll give that a try. I'm giving it a 4 for the possibilities & hoping it lives up to it! I do find FTM and their podcast to be a great resource and I have faith they will continue to refine the VIP memberships. It would be nice to see maybe some of the older webinars added for free for VIP members. There's so much out there for free on YouTube now I don't think I will really be purchasing any of the webinars now but I'd watch if they were free. : ) Review by SHB (Posted on 4/9/2018)
VIP Membership Seems Worthless
Rating
I signed up for the VIP Membership in November 2017. I still have not received one printed issue and cannot find anything on the website that does not want me to pay additional money for. I would not purchase this membership.

Frustrated with access to VIP program benefits
Rating
I cannot find how to get to anything that the VIP program is supposed to offer. I also sent a message via your website trying to get help. I eventually received an email stating you had been overwhelmed with order and messages and I needed to send my message again if I was still having issues. I then received an email wanting me to rate my service. What service, I never received any and still cannot find what I've paid for!

Any article I find with the lock symbol, shows that I need to log in, even though I am. I go ahead and fill out the login box and am taken right back to the same screen, telling me I need to subscribe or login.

Not Good!

Purchased a VIP membership and I can not access anything. What Laura says above that the VIP membership does not include access to the archive does not match what is advertised in your chart. You should have a web site that takes the customer to what they paid for not act like they still need to subscribe. I log on and it keeps asking me to subscribe. Given that you have not had one positive review I think you would improve your product. If this does not get corrected I will be asking for a full refund. Review by Jeffrey (Posted on 1/15/2018)
I CANNOT FIND ANYTHING!!!

I WAS A PLUS MEMBER AND I ENJOYED YOUR MAGAZINE SO MUCH. NOW IM A VIP MEMBER AND CANT FIND A THING! HELP! I SEE THAT IM NOT THE ONLY VIP MEMBER THAT IS HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM. I SET MY RATING AT 1 BUT IF I COULD HAVE I WOULD HAVE SET IT AT 0. YOUR MAGAZINE IS A GREAT PRODUCT. I JUST THINK THAT THE NEW PROGRAMMING NEEDS TO BE REVAMPED TO MAKE IT USER FRIENDLY. I WOULD APPRECIATE RESPONSE. MARLANNA CONNELL Review by Marlanna (Posted on 10/1/2017)

I can't find access to magazines and articles that should come with this membership of $149!!! I also understood it was access to past issues as did the previous reviewer. Please help me find what I need!

Hidden access to VIP program benefits
Rating
Access to the VIP PROGRAM benefits is so obscure that it is impossible to find. Since it includes downloads of past magazines--that's great--try to find them. Please make this $60 annual fee benefit program easier to use!!! IT IS NOT USER FRIENDLY. If one can't access it easily, what good is a subscription? My only downside on this is hidden access; that is why it rates one star.

Customer service reply
We're sorry about the confusion with the new site and the confusion about what is included with the VIP membership. There isn't any access to past issues, but to the articles that are in all the magazines.
