Can you take it to small claims court? Enforcement isn't easy, but it
might be fun. And get their attention. The law may have changed, but it
used to be that you could only sue (assuming less than $5000, unless
that's been upped) in a state where they do business. However, since they
sell in every state, that might count. AFAIK if they used the material
they're liable to pay for it. Or they would have to prove you said they
could have it free... which even if they could fake it, would be more
trouble than coughing up the miniscule amounts those magazines pay. (And
then maybe you could write an article for Publishers Weekly about the
experience ?)
