well i just submitted a joke online. they say they will pay you if they will publish it on a the magazine. but then again i am not sure if they will pay me, but i have a 60% chance that they will publish it. well i know that the story is very funny everybody laughs about it. it's our winning piece. but i just want to know if anybody here had submitted something at reader's digest and got paid?

I have submitted a few jokes there already but, so far, have not received any payment that would indicate that my joke got published.. we don't often get to buy Reader's Digest very so often.. (^_^")

All we could do is actually wait if it does get publish or just keep on sending them a lot perhaps? More chances of getting published and getting payed?

I wonce met someone that did get paid, I haven't but they are a very reliable magazine and they wouldn't be allowed to say they pay if they don't. Now, if you aren't the first submitter, I don't think you'll get paid, but otherwise! Best of luck!

in what way do they pay you. do they pay you through paypal, bank or mail it to you?

Back in those days, the ONLY option was a check in the mail....

I dunno about that.. So far, i have only paid reader digest because i subscribe to it, but never ever know that we can submit things to them and get paid instead.. lol =D Well, i guess there's no harm in submitting the joke to them, if it does not publish, that means it's not up to their standard just yet.. ANd if it's published but u are not paid, then lodge a complain against them.. But then again, thye can say the idea comes from the other party, and they have paid them.. So in any way, u are bound to lose out too..
