Anybody else tired of being asked to sign up for magazines every single time you come inside the store? Its ridiculous. All it is is a way to steal money from you anyways.

Yeah, I just politely say no thank you and try to remember that their bosses are expecting them to do that and they are just following orders. Grin and bear it. ;)

I never shop there and didn't know they did this. I understand up selling your products but if they are pushing magazine subscriptions on a regular basis then there must me some sort of kick back for the company. Like others have said the employees are just doing what they are told. Just like if you buy a soda at the movie theatre they are supposed to ask if you want popcorn or something else to go with it.

Or you could do what I do and say yes, get two free months or magazines then after your two months is up, you can call and cancel them... THEN go back and sign up for two more free months. They really have a great selection of magazines to choose from and you can get them for free if you know how to work the system.
Also if you tell them that you will only get them if you(Hastings) cancels them, you dont even have to worry about canceling them. Js.

Lots of stores do this. BestBuy does the exact same thing. If it's not magazines it's membership cards or featured items or upsizing your value meal. All you have to do is say no thanks. The employees know you don't want it, but asking is part of their job. Hastings is hanging on by a thread now in the digital age and are trying to everything possible to stay profitable and open.
