Magazine Subscription Cancellation Letter

If you are going out for long vacations, it is not a good idea to leave the home without unsubscribing your magazines. Similarly, if you need a magazine only for a limited period of time, you should unsubscribe it after getting the required help.

One way to do this is to send an email to the magazine administration. The email address, usually written on the magazine, is not of the concerned department and as a result, it takes plenty of time to get the required result. The general info department might take plenty of time to forward the request to the distribution/customer care department, which actually sends you the copy.

Therefore, writing a letter is probably the best way to avoid any mess. It will take less time than making a call. Meanwhile, it is not a difficult thing to do. Here, we discuss how to write a letter to unsubscribe the magazine.

    Dear Mr.  Smith,

    I write this letter to notify that I want to unsubscribe magazine ‘Technology Time’ from this month. I recently lost my job and I am no longer in a financial position to pay bills for this. Therefore, I want to unsubscribe the magazine with the immediate effect, from start of next month.

    I always enjoyed reading your magazine. I had been getting it for last six months and it gave me great stuff to read about the latest developments in the field of technology. I hope to renew it, when I get a new job.

    Thank you.
