For Christmas 2008 I ordered and paid for gift subscriptions to Reader's Digest for my son and my brother. I just checked and their subscriptions are not up for renewal until April of 2010. However, on July 14 of this year I received renewal offers urging me to renew them right now. While I'm pretty sure what they're doing is not illegal, as far as I'm concerned it's inexcusable, unacceptable and downright despicable. I'm tempted to send the renewal in asking them to "bill me", then not pay it until February or March of next year. In the meantime I'm sure they'll generate a lot of paper pleading wih me to pay the bill.
