Default Would your LO like a magazine subscription?

A while back I was told about a way to get free magazine subscriptions. The website www.rewardsurvey.com conducts online surveys and rewards you with "points" that can be redeemed for magazine subscriptions.

I started doing this a while back and using the points to give my penpals magazines. Since then, I have reduced the number of penpals I have and thus I have been accumulating points that are going unused.

The selection of magazines is very limited and there are frequently other restrictions, but many inmates are grateful to get anything in the mail so it can be a good thing.

If you have a loved one / penpal that would like to get a magazine PM with the contact information and I can select something and sign them up!

R. Mc.

I use this site often and have sent subscriptions out. This is a good site and I would recommend it. They offer a wide variety selection of magazine subscriptions.

I actually enjoy doing the surveys!

I still have enough points for a few more magazines, if anyone else wants to take advantage

If you are referring to the rewardsurvey.com website, yes! I have a number of different penpals and I have had to problems with the name/address being different for every subscription.


I am now out of points and have a short "wait list". I'll post again if/when I accumulate points.

I saw this thread awhile back and I didn't want to use up the OP's points, but I went to the site and signed up myself. It could not have been easier and I am already getting the magazines that I ordered. Thanks for the tip!

I also signed up for myself and I am earning points for other pen pals now. I just ordered a Time magazine subscription for another friend and I will keep going.

Thank you!

Oh wow... people were talking about Time Magazine and I hadn't seen that so I just clicked on the OP's link and realized that what I signed up for was a different site. Rewardsgold.com. I got Sports Illustrated there for free for me and my LO and still have 3500 points. SI is only 1000 points on that site but it doesn't have nearly the selection that the OP's site does so I just signed up for that one too and got Time. Awesome!

If anyone wants SI for their LO I have enough points for 3 more.

Okay, he has been signed up to Time Magazine. They say to allow up to 12 weeks for it to start to arrive, but I have typically seen them start in 3 to 4 weeks.
