I like magazines. Do you like magazines?
I like to stack them up in my bathroom, and then when I run in there to hide from the bickering, I can read all about Valentine’s Day crafts I could’ve made with my kids back in February if only I’d had time to read my magazine back then.
Very few magazines actually make a profit on subscriptions. Most make their money off of advertising alone. In fact, magazines are able to charge more for advertising the greater their subscribership… and that means they will often give away free subscriptions because it boosts their profits in the long run.
Get a free year-long subscription to Alternative Medicine and know that your other favorites will probably show up on free offers, too. And then? Never pay for a magazine again.
If you have kids, you’ll probably never have time to read them, anyway. Less guilt, this way.
