$5 Magazine Subscriptions


Hearst Magazines is offering a sale right now on some magazines subscriptions. You can get one year (12 issues) for $5 for titles such as Redbook, Popular Mechanics, SmartMoney, O Magazine – just to name a few.

I’m tempted to get a subscription to Popular Mechanics for our son. His gift subscription to Highlights magazine recently expired and he enjoyed getting mail like that. He didn’t enjoy the content that much, except for Goofus and Gallant and anything science related. He may be too young for Popular Mechanics, though. I’ll have to think about it some more.

If you are interested in checking out the deal, here is a link. I’m not sure how long this sale lasts – they are promoting it as a Valentine’s Day Sale so it probably won’t last long.

Thanks Beverly for the tip!

    Thanks for the tip Tricia! I remember getting Highlights as a child, what great magazines. I think your son would enjoy Popular Mechanics, you’re never too young to start learning.

    For $5 and it will benefit him for the year, I think it’s worth it. I remember Popular Mechanics when I was kid, I think around the age of 10, and I loved looking through it.

    If he is too young you could always put them away for a couple of years and then bring them back out.

    Awesome link, thanks! My kids love National Geographic Kids and we have been considering Ranger Rick or Your Big Backyard πŸ™‚

    He might not understand all of it, but he will grow into it. I had a magazine for woodworking that was beyond me, however I feel after 2 years I have grown into it and its at my level now.

    Hey Tricia,
    I love ur site and I know you are going to leave soon but I feel that in the last month or so it has gotten less personal and more linky/ady. It’s good info. for people that need it but nothing a google search won’t find. I think there are others that might agree with me when I say I started following this blog because it was a story. A story that I could learn from and enjoyed reading.
    Anyway, that’s just my 22 cents
