Default Free Magazine Subscriptions

If you haven't tried this, I really recommend it. Basically, places will reward you for completing surveys and do this by giving you free magazine subscriptions--no credit card numbers, or anything like that.

I have done this at least half a dozen times, each time putting my man's name and inmate number and his DOC address, then filling out the survey as though I am him. I have sent him Maxim, Wired, The New Yorker...and others I can't remember! Actually, I sent him Glamour or Cosmo, which definitely gets a chuckle when its delivered, but he finds it interesting to see the 'female perspective'.

I keep this on my internet start-up, as it can be a good tool to let me know about free samples. They will then post the current survey or promotion from various companies. Here is a direct link to one of the companies.

Try it & save money! Or, like me, do it and be able to send things that you would not otherwise afford.

Oh, wow! What a wonderful tip. Thanks for sharing this. My ex loves to read and keep himself current on a variety of issues. This would be a great way to keep him loaded with lots of reading material without breaking the bank.

This is awesome....thanks so much for posting!! I just did a soup survey and got him 12 issues of Self magazine as the reward. He will be completely thrilled, not to mention thrilled it was free. Anything that saves me money he is all about.

Great tip, thanks. I just got 3 free mag and ordered 3 more for $6. That is terrific. As a mom; I couldn't bring myself to order him Maxim; but he did get weird, sports illustrated, 2 Engineering Mag. , Rolling Store, and Nylon Men that should keep him entertained.
