There is nothing better than a good magazine. Well, that is not exactly true. Finding your favorite magazines for great deals is definitely the best of all. We used to get 5 magazines each month, but found that we were spending too much for them, so we had to let some of our favorite magazines go. Fortunately, after doing some research, I was able to get new subscriptions at a much better deal and add 3 more inexpensive magazines to our monthly reading lineup, all for less than I had been paying for the original 5 magazines.
One of the things that helped in the beginning was that we had a family member that worked for the school district and she got a break on magazine prices, making almost all of the magazines we loved cheap magazines. However, when she retired, we had to find another way to buy cheap magazines. I started out researching low priced magazines on the internet, which is my usual starting point on deals. When researching lower priced magazines online, don’t automatically buy from the first site you come to. Often sites down on the list can save you another 5-10% depending on the magazine.
Go to the store and look through the magazines on the rack. Some will have special offers inside on magazine subscriptions. Low cost magazines might even become free magazines depending on the deals you find. Some magazines will offer one year free and another at a discount. Others will allow you to get your first issue free so that you can try it and cancel it if you don’t like it. Also watch out for specials on cheap magazines through other product specials. For instance, we collect Coke points and have gotten 2 magazines for free. You can’t get much cheaper than free! If you are willing to do just a little research, you can find cheap magazines and even free magazines.
