The Tech-pert: Killer Deals on Magazine Subscriptions
Print may be dead, or at least on life support, but I still harbor a deep love for magazines. I subscribe to around a dozen of them, and few things make me as happy as plowing through a stack on a Saturday afternoon.
Although magazine subscriptions tend to run cheap, they can definitely add up. That's why I'm always on the lookout for discount deals--like the one DiscountMags.com
is having right now on some great titles:
- Get a year of Family Handyman (10 issues) for $4. Apply coupon code 3045 at checkout.
- Get a year of Wired (12 issues) for $4. Apply coupon code 5860 at checkout. (Nepotism alert: I'm an occasional contributor. But believe me when I say there's no better science/technology/geek-lifestyle magazine on the planet.)
- Get a year of Women's Health (10 issues) for $3.50. Apply coupon code 4070 at checkout.
As for the rest of DiscountMags already-discounted selection, you can get 20 percent off all other titles by using coupon code J20. Thankfully, all these codes are stackable, meaning you can use more than one if you want to order multiple magazines.
However, I'm not sure when the codes expire, so if you're interested in scoring some serious subscription deals, act fast.
