Bassmaster Magazine

How long does it take to receive my first magazine or introductory gifts?
Your first issue of Bassmaster Magazine or any gifts associated with your offer can take 4-6 weeks to arrive. If it has been longer than 6 weeks, please contact customer service to confirm your delivery address and check on your account.

When should my Bassmaster Magazine issues deliver?
Issues should reach all members no later than the 11th of each month. For double issue (like September/August) they should be received by the 11th of the first month listed.

Why do I receive renewal notices so early?
Bassmaster Magazine is printed several weeks before the actual issue is shipped, thus those members who renew close to their expiration date may miss an issue. Early renewal notices are delivered in order to prevent such interruptions.

I recently renewed my B.A.S.S. Membership but I received an additional notice in the mail; why?
Renewal payments can take a while to post to your account. In most cases, your payment and the additional renewal notices or have simply crossed in the mail.

I'm suddenly receiving two issues per month; how can I fix this?
This occurs when B.A.S.S. has two separate memberships on file for the same person/address. These memberships can be combined, and the one membership will result in a new expiration date. Please contact B.A.S.S. Membership Services at bassmaster@emailcustomerservice.com or toll-free 877-BASS-USA to resolve the issue.
