magazine subscriptions


Amazon.com
Hands down, Amazon has the best selection of titles around. Their prices are also very competitive.

If you're a magazine junky, check out this deal -- 5 one-year subscriptions for a total of $30. You get to choose from 160 titles, including Spin, Vibe, Los Angeles Magazine, Parents, Car & Driver, Entrepreneur, Seed & Fitness. Plus you get free one-year subscriptions to Black Enterprise and Latina Magazine, each of which can be sent to yourself or to friends (or you can opt out of this additional offer).

Magazines.com, Inc. Magazines.com
Subscriptions to some magazine titles will cost the same no matter where you shop. But prices for some titles can vary significantly from site to site -- with some sites charging almost three times as much as others for the exact same subscription. When I compared the prices of 25 subscriptions at 11 different stores, Magazines.com and BAMM (see next entry) performed the best. So if you're comparison shopping, this is a good place to start. One heads up -- Subscriptions purchased at Magazines.com renew each year automatically, but you can cancel any time for a full refund on undelivered issues. Gift subscriptions don't renew automatically (though you do have the option of selecting automatic renewal for gift subscriptions as well).

BAMM subscriptions do not renew automatically - you will be notified when your subscription is about to expire and given the option to renew.

A real mixed bag.... This site offered some of the very worst and very best prices (if you use their coupons). It all depends on the magazine title.

Buy.com - In my price comparison of 25 magazine titles, this store consistently offered the worst prices of all.

Magazine City - Subscription rates are very good, but beware of the site's hidden fees: $1 processing fee charged with each order and their "free" gift cards actually cost $.89. Plus no cancellations after 48 hours.
