Well, okay, they’re not all just $3, but a lot of them are.
Right now at Amazon they’re offering an instant $5 off on magazine subscriptions, and many of them start at just $8. So you end up with a year of Redbook for $3 or whatever. (Family Fun, which is probably my favorite magazine ever, ends up being under $5.)
Magazines are a great holiday gift for people who don’t need more stuff, too. Just sayin’.
