I find this interesting as I have a subscription to F & P (about to expire) and I never got anything like that (not that I want a DVD). Also, over the years had subscriptions to other quilting magazines and never had anything like that happen. But, I would never pay for something I did not order.

This happened to me. It did come with a letter stating that I could either pay for it or since it wasn't ordered I could keep it without paying. I kept it and didn't pay because that was my choice of their options. I was billed more than once for it. I called Fons and Porter and I still got another bill. I finially e-mailed them and put it all in writing and I finally stopped getting bills. I also received an answer email stating they wouldn't send me such items in the future.

You might want to e-mail them that you won't be paying for the DVD since you didn't order it. If you don't wish to keep it you could return it with a letter telling them not to send anymore. Good luck.

Dd they try to collect payment? If not, i would not worry about it. DVDs cost a dime to produce . I this came in the mil and you did not order it, i would not waste a minute worrying about it. It was probably a marketing piece.

This has probably been said by now, but it states ON THE BILL, that you are in no way liable for the amount because they sent it to you unsolicited. They go away after a couple of bill cycles. I also hate that they ask me to order their magazines even after I've subscribed, and ask for renewal in the next letter. Sadly, they are not alone in that practice.
