GamePro free gift question

I suscribed to GamePro about 3 1/2 months ago. The free gift I was told I'd receive was a book called "How to Make Money in Video Games" (Or something simmilar to that). I have just received my 3rd issue, but still no book. I would like to know if anyone else has been in this situation and how long I should wait untill I receive my gift.

Your first mistake was subscribing to Gamepro. "How to Make Money in Video Games" sounds like a "get rich quick scheme." Those things never work.

"How to Make Money in Video Games" <== here's ur answer!

Find the RARE game & OUT OF PRINT game then buy them all.........SELL HIGH PRICE on EBAY then you'll be RICH. Something like REZ and Marvel Vs Capcom 2... you can buy it for $20 while ago......and now it up to $100

I paid $10 for Marvel vs. Capcom 2. It's a terrible game, maybe I should sell it.

How to Make Money in Video Games:

1. Start a video game magazine.
2. Offer a free ""How to Make Money in Video Games"" book with paid subscription.
3. Never send said book.
4. Profit!

Seriously, though. Lots of those things take up to 8-12 weeks after you pay for your sub to get. About the time you forget about it is when you get it. If you've paid, and your payment has cleared, 8 weeks or more ago, I'd contact them.

I don't suscribe to Gamepro, but I get EGM and GameInformer. They are great bathroom reading material.

I was waiting for my sub to run out and then they extended it another year. No!!!!!!!!! It finally ran out and I'm not getting it again.

Give your free gift another month and then call their cust service dept if you reall want it.

Wouldn't that require me to have a lot of money to begin with?

I've made some nice bank on old out of print games since I always seemed to end up owning that kind of stuff, but it takes way too much luck to be a business.
