      I'm trying to sign up but am stuck. Once I enter my occupation, etc I click continue and go to a page that indicates that I can choose up to 3 more but I click continue and that brings me to a page that has several boxes one of which indicates that I haven't put my address on there (because they haven't asked for it). When I click any of the options on that page the word “error” pops up at the bottom on the right. Did anyone else have this problem?

      • Shannon

        me too!

      • deb

        Same is happening to me

      • Michelle

        yep, exact same thing for me. :(

      • mceccofiglio

        I too am having this problem….

      • mariek

        I had the same problem. I'm assuming you will get an e-mail to enter this info??? If not maybe we can go to Mercury Mag. site and find a Contact us link??? That's what I'm going to try doing.

      • Jennifer

        got the same thing.

    • scoop2

      didnt work for me :(

    • Dionne

      I got the same thing. It says Thank You, but then it says I forgot something and to press continue, but when I press continue, nothing happens. :-(

    • michelle

      same here!

    • spencersseven

      I was able to enter “other industries” and “homemaker”, but it required a job function and although I chose an option, it wouldn't let me select the magazine subscription. What did you choose for the job function?

      • This is sad, but I can't truly remember, but I *think* I chose, other->homemaker, General manager -> Operations -> Partner. When you go to “check out” I put homemaker as my title and it requires a company name, so I put “[last name] household” Of course, filling in my last name.

        Hope this helps :)

        • Michelle

          Thanks for the tip! I tried a similar formula, and was able to get mine. :)

        • Jennifer

          Thanks Susan. That worked for me. :)

        • Amy

          Thanks! This worked.

        • Susie

          Perfect! It worked for me too.

        • Jess

          Thanks, Susan!!

        • Elizabeth

          Thanks Susan! :)

    • immrswilliams

      Not working for me either….hmm… Wonder if I did something wrong?

    • Amy

      Same here

    • Mandy

      Got mine!

    • Kristi

      I am a teacher and it let me subscribe, although it didn't give me any other free options.

    • Dionne

      Apparently you have to be a “something”. I went with General Manager, Manager, President, etc. until it quit asking me and then I finally got through to address. (Had to use a title and company name when filling out the address part.)

      • Aurelia

        I had already tried entering my job informaton but still got the errors described in my first message. What am I missing?

    • i was able to do this. As far as job functions i got as close to what I do as possible and had to just select something on one of them.

    • Mary

      Thanks, worked for me.

    • saveabuc

      Homemaker and general manager worked for me, at least I was able to put in an address. We will see. Thanks Jenny

    • christina

      I already have a subscription for this mag, will it add on or will I receive doubles?

    • Katie

      Does anyone know what the intention of this offer is? Is their goal to have these magazines sitting in waiting rooms? It looks to me like they truly want you to be a bona fide business, because they require a job title and company name, but if so, why do they list the option of homemaker? If they allow homemakers to do this, I'm all for it, but my conscience won't let me make up a bogus company name if they have no intention of allowing homemakers to do this…

    • Misty

      I tried, but it wouldn't let me click on continue.

    • gery220

      Done..thanks jenny

    • michelle

      I finally got it to work, I chose homemaker, then general management through the next series, finally let me put in an address, and I was honest as I put homemaker/teacher as my occupation, and for company I just put “home”

    • Alegra

      I used: Other, Homemaker, General manager, Operations, Partner
      then used Homemaker as my title, Household as company name…it gave me the subscription.

    • Silent E

      I used my husband’s info, but put the address as our house instead of his work address. It gave me a chance to select 3 additional subscriptions based on his job, so it may be worthwhile to do this!

    • jennywellman

      I signed up for it, but it never asked me for my address… It said at the end that I will receive my subscription within 6-8 weeks.. Wonder where its going??

      • Ashley

        Mine didnt ask for an address either

    • dgram41

      Thank you Jenny! I got my subscription. I don't feel like I'm ripping them off because I am in business …. the business of running a houshold and ALL that it entails!

    • debra

      I beacame a general manager and business adminstration for my family only way it would work

    • mceccofiglio

      If you play around with it for a few minutes you will eventually get a combination that does work…Took me about 4 tries…but I got it!!! thanks Bunches!

    • tracy99

      I had no problem with mine. I put in (my profession) Medical, Hospital, Medical, RN and it gave me offers of other mags too (which I had no interest in so did not choose). I just put in RN for title & company name and it went through without a problem. Thanks Jenny!!

    • tarabj

      Jenny, while you are doing magazines, you might want to check this one out, it is published by P&G and may have special coupons in it: http://www.rougemag.com/US/Subscribe.aspx

      • tracy99

        Thanks! I just ordered this.

    • lesliew

      mine worked, but at the end screen when it said my subscription would be arriving in 6-8 weeks, it said that it might “vary by title” – which has me thinking they might send me a different magazine?

    • Sharlene1947

      Thank you so much for the free magazine tips.

    • justincase1031

      Finally worked for me too! I also used homemaker, then went onto the series of other questions with general management or manager for the rest of the drop down boxes. In the business name field, just type Homemaker or whatever and then it will ask for your address.
      Worked like a charm. Can't wait!

      Thanks Jenny!

    • Joy S

      Worked for me! I used retail then clothes as Industry. For job function I put management, general management and then business management and it worked. Then I only checked the Family Circle and after a few pages it shows where to enter the address. Hope this helps.

    • janet5631


    • grannygrunt

      I was able to get it but I put my last name as company & was able to get this

    • Laurie Nation

      I'm now the Administrative Assistant of my family household.

    • TRACY

      just worked for me but took some trial and error

    • Peaches

      I just did the following and it worked!

      I chose, other->homemaker, General manager -> Operations -> Partner. When you go to “check out” I put homemaker as my title and it requires a company name, so I put “[last name] household” Of course, filling in my last name.

      • debbie

        Thank you, these worked for me also, after trying to figure it out on my own and not getting to add an address.

    • Sunnye

      It worked for me! Thanks!!

    • Jennifer

      Am I the only one that doesn't see a “homemaker” option???

      • Jennifer

        Nevermind, they just weren't all in abc order. Silly me! I waited too long though! Family Circle is out of stock now.

    • Laine
