Want a Magazine to Read?


How about 44 of them??




Don’t know when it started but I do remember how. I received an email asking if I would be interested in receiving a free magazine for filling out a 2-3 minute survey and I just deleted it. Then it came again but this time it mentioned a magazine I was interested in so I decided to do it and before I knew it I was doing a quick survey a month and, obviously, I did more than 44 surveys over the past couple of years.


Not only do I get 44 magazines a month (some every week) I have $357 in credit!!


Some of the magazines I get are Forbes, Fortune, Time, New York, The New Yorker, Golf, Auto Monthly, Bon Appétit, O, W, Sunset, Men’s Journal, Esquire, Gentleman’s Quarterly, This Old House, Glamour, AARP, Rolling Stone, Wired, Elle, US, People, Sports Illustrated, etc. Most I give to neighbors who are interested in the magazine’s subjects but I still find myself with a bunch of magazines piled up that I have to catch up with.


They have print magazines, digital magazines and even recorded magazines along with some books and you don’t pay a penny nor do you get tons of emails.


 


With all this the books I want to read are also piling up!

Now why don't doctor's offices subscribe to such services so they'd have some other old issues of skiing, People, Us, Time, and a lot of medical magazines. Mosquito News,anybody?

Because they aren't as smart as their patients!! Remember it is THE PRACTICE of medicine and they practice on us!!

That sounds like a good program for you. Do you share them with your neighbors?

I usually give a batch to the community room for the Meal on Wheels crowd to read or will give some magazines to those with special interests like the golf magazine or auto week, etc.
