Magazine subscriptions for $5 each…for a year!
Walk into a bookstore to buy a magazine, and you’ll be luck to find one where an individual issue is under $5.
There is a limited time offer right now at Amazon for Kindle store magazines for $5…for an entire year!
I do read magazines on my
I read Entertainment Weekly every week, which I get through Amazon.
I read Fortean Times, which I get through Zinio (you can get the app for the Fire tablets at the Zinio site). I’d say I’m more than a year behind on that, but I get to it eventually.
That’s one of those magazines where you get a lot of content…unlike some really popular magazines, it doesn’t seem like it is mostly ads.
We subscribe to National Geographic…and I read it from time to time. It depends on whether an article catches my eye, and I do tend to read it when I’m at the dentist because, you know, tradition. 😉
My sense is that magazines are not a big money maker for Amazon for the Kindle, but I do think they are here to stay, and they can be a nice part of your reading mix. Some of them even do text-to-speech now on individual articles, although I haven’t had one that will just keep reading into the next article.
If you don’t have a Fire, check to see if the magazine will work with your device (some do, some don’t). Two other notes: you can’t give digital subscription to magazines at this point (although you can do that with paper magazines), and you can’t use a gift card balance to pay for subscription items.
You can do a free sample of magazines, but if you do want to buy a subscription, here are sixteen you can get right now for $5 each for a year:
