WagJag Canada: Canadian Living One Year Subscription Only $9.60 With Coupon Code

WagJag is celebrating their 5th birthday! Five years is a pretty monumental birthday (just ask my soon to be 5-year-old!) as it means this company is hopefully sticking around. Today only they’ve got a coupon code for an additional 20% off any deal. Use coupon code 5BDAY I hand-picked this one year of Canadian Living magazine as that is one of my most favourite Canadian magazines and getting it for $12 was already good, but getting it for $9.60 is so much better. That’s 80 cents an issue!

If you haven’t read Canadian Living, you simply must. Read the rest of this entry »

$10 Kobo Credit with Visa Checkout

Posted by on June 7, 2015 at 7:55 PM

$10 Kobo Credit with Visa Checkout

Kobo Books has teamed up with Visa Checkout to offer you $10 Kobo Credit.

The offer is fairly simple: place an (1) order for an eBook or magazine. Use Visa Checkout as your payment method. The $10 will appear in your account as an account credit. it will be automatically applied within 48-hours of your purchase. There is a limit of one credit per Kobo user and, as per usual, Kobo reserves the right to cancel the promotion at any time.

If you are still not familiar with Visa Checkout, then let me refresh your memory on how to use it.

  • Choose Visa Checkout as your checkout option
  • Sign up via the ‘create account’ button if you have not already
  • Complete your purchase

There appears to be no exclusions from this offer. I assume, based on the fine print, that any order is eligible including orders that use coupons or purchase sale books and magazines. We have had some great deals from Kobo lately, and you can combine all of them with this offer as well!

As Anna mentioned, there is a free $5 credit for new members to Kobo Books. On top of it, you can find plenty of:

I also recently blogged a great magazine deal where an entire year’s subscription will only cost you $5. There are some popular magazine titles in there, thus I recommend checking it out. In fact, one of these yearly magazine subscriptions could be your qualifying order for the $10 credit.

Books and magazines are really a personal taste. I have never managed to get behind digital books the same way I have received digital music, but that is because books are a tactile experience as well. However, I relish the thought of no bookshelves: just a little device, less than half the width of a small softcover, sitting on my bedside table. The minimalist in me loves this idea while nostalgia keeps me from parting from all my books.

Magazines are different. I far prefer the digital copies as it saves so much money and wasted paper. They also are more ‘consumable’ than books. Few people I know read magazines more than once or twice.

This is a fantastic offer from Kobo and I hope many of our lovely Moosers can take advantage of it.

Kobo Books Canada: Magazine Subscriptions from $5

Posted by on June 5, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Kobo Books Canada: Magazine Subscriptions from $5

Kobo Books Canada is selling magazine subscriptions from just $5! This is part of their summer blowout sale on now.

Some of these $5 subscriptions cost more for a single issue than for a yearly subscription with this deal! For example, this subscription of Cooking Light for an entire year costs just $5 whereas a single issue would cost you $6.33! You are saving 93% on the cover price with an annual subscription.

I really like fashion, but I never have time to keep track of all the great fashion magazines. In fact, I rarely read magazines unless I am at the doctor’s office or dentist. I see them as a bit of a waist of paper, so I am a huge fan of digital copies. sure, it is not the same as a physical copy but it saves many trees and tons of ink. People StyleWatch, InStyle, and Real Simple are all great magazines with articles on fashion (and managing your fashion). Better yet, a year’s subscription is just $5.

When i think of Sports Illustrated, I think of the swimsuit edition: who doesn’t? Therefore, it surprised me that Sports Illustrated has a kid’s magazine. If your child is into soccer, football, swimming, hockey, and more, then why not pick up a subscription to Sports Illustrated Kids for $5. The magazine includes sports trivia, games, contests, and profiles of the greatest names in sports today.

There are many other subscriptions to choose from in this sale. If I were picking up a subscription, then I would purchase either Real Simple (linked above) or Health. It is about this time that I lose all hope in my exercise and eating better regime. A magazine like this gives new ideas for getting healthy. At this point in the year, anything would be helpful!

Now, you could get one of these subscriptions for free. As Anna mentioned yesterday, new Kobo customers will receive a $5 credit when they sign up for an account. Your credit should appear within 30 minutes of signing up for your new account. Then, you can redeem that $5 discount for a yearly magazine subscription of your choice. As the free credit is $5 and you can pick up a yearly magazine subscription for only $5 – you could technically get your subscription for free.

House and Home Magazine Subscription Was $33 | Now $16 @ Wagjag

Posted by on May 18, 2015 at 12:00 PM

House and Home Magazine Subscription Was $33 | Now $16 @ Wagjag

Wagjag is having a promotion that can save you a bundle on a two-year or one-year subscription to House and Home Magazine. A two-year (24 issues) subscription was $65.90 but is now only $25.  You can also purchase a one-year (12 issues) subscription originally priced $32.95 but now is only $16. Shipping is fully included with this deal.

Many of us have dreams of decorating and redecorating our homes in the same beautiful fashion that home designers do. House and Home magazine will provide you with lots of inspiration, tips and tricks from some of the top designers and renovators. Use the tips in this magazine to keep your home’s look fresh and chic throughout the year or to overhaul a room in your home from top to bottom. Between the glossy pages, you will find ideas to decorate your home, full home makeover features, entertaining tips and even a few recipes.

If you head over to House and Home’s website, you are able to subscribe directly from them to receive your copy. House and Home is currently charging $26.95 for a one-year subscription or $46.95 for a two-year subscription. Rogers Magazine Service is also offering yearly subscriptions of House & Home Magazine for $26.50 per year and only offers a one-year subscription. If you were to purchase this magazine from your local pharmacy or newsstand, it would cost you $5.99 per issue or $71.99 for a year’s worth of editions of this magazine. Over the course of two years, you would spend $143.98. If you are considering picking this magazine up more than once or twice from the newsstand, you may want to consider having it delivered to your door for much less.

While Wagjag does not have reviews available on their site, Roger’s Magazine Service does allow reviews. Over 417 people have reviewed this magazine and it still has a high rating of four and a half stars out of five. Here is one reviewer who feels that this magazine is a great value.

Great inspiration. Love the Source Guide so I can buy what I see here in Canada.

A second reviewer is anxiously awaiting their edition every month.

House and Home is a beautiful magazine with tons of photos and info every month. When it arrives I love to curl up and spend the day with it! There is always something that I can apply to my own home. A great read.

This deal does still have a little bit of time left before it expires. Right now, over 147 people have purchased the deal and it does state there are a limited number of subscriptions available. If you want to snag this deal, you may want to grab it before they sell out of subscriptions. I noticed those two-year subscriptions seem to be going much faster, which may end this deal soon.

Free ‘All You Need Is Cheese’ Magazine @ Dairy Goodness Canada

Posted by on May 17, 2015 at 9:00 AM

Free All You Need Is Cheese Magazine @ Dairy Goodness Canada

Love cheese? Then sign up to Dairy Goodness’ newsletter to receive a free issue of “All You Need Is Cheese”.

I have to admit that I find the wording of this freebie ever so slightly confusing. Once you click over to Dairy Goodness’ page, you will see the following in big bold letters: “subscribe to the all you need is cheese magazine”.

Underneath, however, it says that by signing up, you will receive “your free copy of the next all you need is cheese issue in the mail”, which as you can see, doesn’t specify it as “issues” in the plural form but rather just one “issue”.

It would appear that after you receive your first copy in the mail, that you will then continue to be subscribed to the Dairy Goodness monthly e-mail newsletter, which will hopefully provide you with all of the same content and recipes as the magazine hard copy would have. Of course, there is nothing obligating you from subscribing to this newsletter either. Just avoid ticking off the “Yes!” check box in the registration form.

If you don’t want to wait for your copy of the magazine in the mail or would like to grab subsequent issues for free, then there is also a list of locations from which you can pick up the “All You Need Is Cheese” magazine for free.

Although this offer isn’t available to residents of Quebec or the Northwest Territories, it is open to the following provinces: Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia.

While you wait for your issue or newsletters, you can also check out a list of cheesy recipes on Dairy Goodness’ website. They have loads of very tasty-sounding options like: cheesy chicken quesadillas, mac & cheese pizza, four-cheese zucchini lasagna, pigs in blankets etc. The one I’m most curious about trying is definitely the mozzarella tortilla stack as it looks super easy to make!

20 Issues Of HELLO! Canada Magazine + Royal Baby Edition Was $45 | Now $29 @ Wagjag

Posted by on May 4, 2015 at 4:06 PM

20 Issues Of HELLO! Canada Magazine + Royal Baby Edition Was $45 | Now $29 @ Wagjag

A royal baby has been born and the world is celebrating! HELLO! Canada magazine teamed up with Wagjag to offer you an amazing deal. Receive 20 issues of HELLO! Canada magazine plus receive a special Royal Baby Commemorative Edition. This bundle is valued at $45 but is selling right now for just $29 @ Wagjag. That puts your cost at only $1.45 per issue.

If you are not familiar with HELLO! Canada magazine already, now is the time to become friends. This magazine is full of celebrity news and tidbits. You will also get all the scoop on the new royal princess. The Globe and Mail officially announced her name:

Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge.

Princess Charlotte, such a dreamy name! With this subscription, you will get a special royal baby commemorative edition of HELLO! Canada featuring all the latest details and photos. How did Kate come out of that hospital ten hours after giving birth looking as if she stepped away from a spa vacation? I hope someone handed her an ice pack the second she was out of the public eye. When I was ten hours after giving birth, I was begging my husband to tell our friends not to visit us in the hospital because my lady bits were still on ice.

This is the perfect magazine to take with you when you lounge by the pool, hang in your backyard or on your beach vacation. I always prefer lighter reading for summertime lounging. Twenty issues should take you most of the way through the summer with plenty of good browsing material.

Price Comparison

If you go straight to the source, HELLO! Canada is selling their magazine for $1.99 per issue according to their website. If you buy straight from the magazine, you are forced to purchase a full year subscription of 53 issues. From reading the fine print, the cost actually varies by region. That puts the total cost at $105.47 for Ontario, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Labrador and Manitoba. If you are in Quebec or Nova Scotia, the cost is $121.26. Those in Prince Edward Island will pay $120.24. Any areas of Canada not specifically mentioned will be charged $110.74. Rogers Magazine Service will charge you $99.95 for a full year subscription to HELLO! Canada. Though they do not specify how many issues a year’s subscription is, I would suspect it is 53 issues also. That breaks down to costing you $1.89 per issue.

Reviews

Over at Rogers Magazine Service, you will find plenty of positive reviews on this magazine. The number is over 600 and counting! Here is a review from one reader who has been happy with the coverage of the new princess so far.

Love being able to keep up with the Royals. HELLO!  Canada has the most comprehensive coverage. Love all the photos. They are tastefully done and help me keep up with what’s happening in entertainment biz.

Order your copy of this magazine now! This deal very well may sell out long before the expiry folks, I see there have already been many purchases. Grab yours now and one for your mom for Mother’s Day too. Print out a picture of a HELLO! Canada magazine cover and slip it in your Mother’s Day card so mom knows that the surprise is on the way!

Kobo Books: People Magazine Royal Issues Only 99¢ Each ($5.20 Value)

Posted by on May 3, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Kobo Books: People Magazine Royal Issues Only 99¢ Each ($5.20 Value)

Kobo Books has discounted digital back issues of Royal Family issues in People Magazine. Usually, a single issue of People Magazine retails for $5.20. However, you can now purchase a selection of six royal family issues for just 99¢ each.

This is a great deal for several reasons. First, you are saving 81% off the regular retail price of single issues. As you can see here, single issues retail for $5.20 each. Even if you bought the annual subscription, $114.69 for approximately 52 issues, you are still paying over $2 per issue. This deal for the royal issues is less than half the annual subscription rate per issue.

The second reason I love this deal can be summed up in two words: royal baby. As some of you may know, Princess Kate (the Duchess of Cambridge) just had another baby! On Saturday, she gave birth to a baby girl. There is plenty of speculation as to what this child will be named… I have seen suggestions for Alice, Charlotte, and my personal favourite: Victoria.

If you have not kept up on the Royal Family’s baby news… now is the time to be caught up. Most of the back issues you can purchase cover the birth of this new baby’s big brother: Prince George. There is also a more recent issue from this January about getting ready for baby number two!

Overall, you can purchase six issues for 99¢ each:

  • January 12, 2015
  • November 3, 2014
  • July 28, 2014
  • April 21, 2014
  • September 2, 2013
  • August 12, 2013

I am not terribly interested in the Royals, but one of my best friends was born in England (and lives in Canada). I also have a friend who still lives in England so it is nice to keep up on this stuff as a conversation piece. It avoids those awkward moments when someone starts talking about the new royal baby and you go “wait… she is pregnant again?” That is sort of what I did last week… whoops!

Drop a comment below to let us know what you think the new princess’s name will be. I am voting Victoria – I think it is a safe bet and a strong female name in the royal family.

(Save 50%) Canadian Gardening Magazine One Year Subscription Now Only $10 @ Wagjag

Gardening season is coming soon and I cannot wait to get mine started. Get a jump-start on your garden with a subscription to Canadian Gardening magazine. Right now on Wagjag you can get a one year subscription for only $10 which is 50% off of what you would pay elsewhere. Shipping is included with this deal.

Ripe tomatoes, fresh herbs, crispy green beans and peas all sound delicious right now. I can hardly wait to be crunching them sitting in my backyard on a warm summer night. I never make a large garden, but I always plant some of my favourites.

Get some inspiration for your garden too and subscribe to Canadian Gardening magazine through this awesome deal through Wagjag. You will get a full year’s subscription, which includes six issues. With the subscription priced at only $10, you will pay only $1.67 per issue.

Between the pages you will find all kinds of helpful tips and tricks to start your garden and keep it going. Find out about the latest garden gear, learn how to grow your flowers and shrubs bigger, or consult the pages when you run into issues. I could have used a copy myself when squash bugs took over my zucchini last year. This would also make a great gift for Mother’s Day. A magazine subscription is a gift I always appreciate, and there is just something exciting about getting mail you are looking forward to.

I price compared this subscription around the web and here is what I found. Over on Canadian Garden’s website, you can subscribe for one-year for $19.95, which includes a free small tote. You could also subscribe through Rogers Magazine Service  where you will pay $19.95 for a one-year subscription. I am not sure exactly how much newsstand prices are, but according to Canadian Garden’s noted savings, issues would run you about $6.50 each on the newsstand or about $40 per year.

Over on Rogers Magazine Service many people are talking about this magazine. The magazine has 92 reviews and a four out of five star rating. Here is one reviewer who keeps coming back to this magazine:

This is a magazine you can keep to refer to for advice and suggestions time and again.

A second reviewer likes that the magazine has practical advice.

I really enjoy reading this magazine, not one of those “dream garden” references but actually includes tips and info for the “regular” gardener.

This deal will not last long, and they may run out of subscriptions before the expiry date. Right now over 250 people have picked up this sweet little deal. Grab your copy or a gift subscription before these magazines are gone.

Bargainmoosers, what do you grow in your garden?

Zinio Canada: 2-Yr Magazine Subscription For The Price Of 1-Yr (Cosmopolitan, O, PC World & More!)

Posted by on February 3, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Zinio Canada: 2 Yr Magazine Subscription For The Price Of 1 Yr (Cosmopolitan, O, PC World & More!)

Here’s a Valentine’s Day gift idea that keep on giving: get a 2-year subscription to select magazines at Zinio for the price of 1 year!

With a total of 78 different magazines to choose from, here are just some of the ones that stood out to me:

  • Cosmopolitan
  • Harper’s Bazaar
  • Food Network Magazine
  • Macworld
  • O: The Oprah Magazine
  • Good Housekeeping
  • Elle
  • Photography Week
  • Women’s Health
  • Cooking Light
  • Men’s Health
  • Parenting

There are also a couple of travel, geeky, commercial, home and other magazines that I would say are more niche-specific. For instance, Scootering is in there, covering all things related to scooters but this one definitely wouldn’t apply to everyone.

Prices vary per magazine but to give you an idea, Cosmopolitan is $22.92 for a two-year subscription with 26 issues, which comes down to just $0.88 per issue. These are digital copies, of course, but considering a print edition of this popular magazine typically runs for close to $6, then paying less a dollar is definitely a steal of a deal.

If you are unfamiliar with how to read the magazines, it’s super easy. You can either browse the magazine from an iOS or Android device (this includes both smart phones and tablets) or you can use the desktop reader to view it from the comfort of your desktop or laptop.

This is definitely a great Valentine’s Day gift idea, especially since the subscription will be good for two years and your loved one won’t have to worry about resubscribing for a while. Plus, there are plenty of diverse magazines to choose from to cater to most interests.

Another magazine that I didn’t mention above but that could be an interesting choice is Geek. It covers a wide array of trending topics pertaining to lifestyle, film, music, comic books and more. To give you an idea, the current May-June 2015 cover is that of Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s priced at $16.29 for 12 issues.

There is absolutely no mention as to when this promotion might expire, so if I were you, I wouldn’t wait to take advantage of it if there is a magazine that you particularly want to subscribe to.

Free Stickers, Magazine & Comic Books @ PETA Kids Canada

Posted by on December 31, 2014 at 7:01 PM

Free Stickers, Magazine & Comic Books @ PETA Kids Canada

PETA wants to put a spotlight on kids with some free items. If your little one loves stickers, comic books or magazines, then complete the quick form to have some freebies sent to you from PETA Canada. These free items are a great way to educate your child about animal rights.

The PETA stickers for kids are so cute. These are a cool way to spread the word about animal rights. I really like the sticker with the baby chick on it that says, “I am not a nugget”. While I do enjoy my bacon, I totally dig these stickers too.

You can also get four free comics from PETA Kids’ Canada. These comics include: A Dog’s Life, A Cow’s Life, A Rat’s Life and A Chicken’s Life. The description says that these books will teach children about testing labs, where leather comes from and more. If I were you, I would take a good look at these books before handing them over to your child. Just to make sure they are not depressing.

Last but not least, there is a free Kids’ Guide to Helping Animals magazine. This PETA magazine will help your child learn how to be a hero for animals. Inside the magazine you will find tips on topics like protecting wildlife as well as cruelty free products. There is also an inside scoop on which Hollywood celebrities are helping animals and why. You will even find puzzles, stickers and quizzes inside this guide.

I also found a lot of other interested features on the PETA Kids website. They have an easy vegan cupcake recipe, an article about why indoor cats are the happiest cats, sweet vegan treats and more. While I personally do not wish to become a vegan, these articles and recipes still appeal to me.

I ordered this freebie for myself anyway, the stickers are so cute I couldn’t resist. We will have to wait and see what the books and guide are like before I read them to my son. What about you, did you order this freebie?

Zinio Canada: 5 Issues Of Amateur Photographer For $7.45

Posted by on December 27, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Zinio Canada: 5 Issues Of Amateur Photographer For $7.45

Amateur Photographer is a specialist magazine containing photography news, events, tips & techniques, darkroom advice, equipment tests, and more. And just now, there’s a special offer on a digital subscription, via the magazine service, Zinio.com. You can subscribe to five issues of this magazine for only $7.45 – that’s $1.49 per issue.

If you are buying one issue alone through Zinio, the cover price is $5.95, so $7.45 for 5 issues is really excellent. It’s hard for me to properly price compare this deal as I am not out at the store looking at a newsstand right now. But I had a look online and I can see that on the iTunes app store, each issue of this magazine would be $2.99 to buy, standalone. And Margarita found a site online showing that the magazine is £3.75 in the UK to buy in-store, which translates to about $6.80 per issue!

If you’re not sure what the technical specification of your device needs to be, or what devices you can use Zinio on, please have a read of their help pages. We want to make sure that you don’t buy something you cannot use. But you should be able to use this Zinio subscription on various iPads and Android tablets.

If anyone got a new digital SLR camera for Christmas, this magazine would be a great read. I got my first DSLR about 3 years ago, for a Christmas gift. I will admit that I did not know much about photography at all… basically I just pointed and clicked. Shortly after, I subscribed to a photography magazine… it wasn’t Amateur Photographer, but I cannot remember exactly which one it was.

Anyway, I found that much of the magazine’s content was quite technical and a little out of my potentiality. But, I did find that the magazine taught me quite a lot of basic photography principles which I still use to this very day. For example: the rule of thirds. I hadn’t heard of that before. When composing a photograph (particularly in landscape photography), it’s a guideline about breaking up your photo with the horizon, so your landscape shows in thirds. I’ve used this rule many times in taking excellent landscape shots.

I’ve picked up many more tips from the subscription that I had… I recommend you do the same. Zinio Canada: 5 Issues Of Amateur Photographer For $7.45

WagJag Canada: $26 For One-Year OwlKids Subscription

Posted by on November 30, 2014 at 9:30 AM

WagJag Canada: $26 For One Year OwlKids Subscription

This Cyber Weekend, WagJag has a great deal on an OwlKids subscription. While it says the regular price is $59, that would be the cost if you bought each magazine individually from the newsstand. The one-year subscription rate for these magazines is actually $34.95 plus tax. WagJag has it on for $29, but if you also use the our exclusive promo code, you’ll get another 15% off, making your total for a one-year subscription only $26.10.

You have your choice of magazines and you can get all three. I’ve actually subscribed to all three of these magazines at one time, and I’m going to get each as a gift for my kids, as they all love to read and they love to get their own mail. At this low price, why not?

The first is Chirp, which is aimed at kids aged 3-6. It has lots of fun things to do, stories, craft ideas and my kids loved this when they were younger. I saved all of my copies for reference so we can do the crafts or recipes we didn’t have time to do.

The second is chickaDee, which is for children aged 6-9. It is similar to Chirp, but for an older audience who might read it themselves.

Owl is aimed at kids aged 9-13 and has the stuff that tweens love like technology, pop culture, hard puzzles in a lively format. Writing this, I realized I now have a tween. A little frightened, I must admit.

All subscriptions include shipping and taxes and there are no additional fees. You can buy as many subscriptions as you want, so if you have special kids that live away from you and you can’t get to them to get them a gift, this is an amazing idea. My mother-in-law actually did this one year for the kids and every month (well there are 10 issues), when the magazine came, they remembered who had gotten them the subscription.

Before you shop this weekend/week, be sure to check out our Cyber Monday dashboards for all the hottest deals. You’ll also want to check out WagJag‘s coupon page, with some hot coupon codes to add to your already hot deals.

I scored an exclusive so hot, it sizzles! This is actually one of the first coupons that has come from Next Issue, so I find this very exciting. Get 20% off your first three months subscription with Next Issue with exclusive promo code. You can also take advantage of your first 30 days free, so you’ll basically be getting four months for a low price.

Click here to get reading @ Nextissue.ca now

  • Coupon Code: MOOSE
  • Discount: 20% off three months
  • Expiry: 31st October 2014

I think I’m going to bite this time. I’ve been wanting to get Next Issue for quite a while as I’m an avid magazine reader. I’ve been known to have over ten subscriptions at any one time, but I’ve let most of those lapse. I do love the feel of paper and the ability to rip out articles and recipes that interest me (although my husband does not love this ability as paper is scattered all over my house). But, it really isn’t cost-effective. I spend many evenings on my tablet, so why not read my magazines on the tablet? This way as well, I’ll have access to way more magazines than I could ever dream of subscribing to. It also doesn’t mean I can’t subscribe to my favourites, it just means I have more choice electronically.

There are two plans available with Next Issue. The first is the basic magazines, which are monthlies and there are 130 magazines you can read. The second is the premium package with 141 magazines, but they include weeklies, so you’ll be getting them more often. The first package is $9.99 a month and the second is $14.99 a month. With our coupon code, you’ll save $2 a month on the basic and $3 a month on the premium. The best deal for me is the premium as I enjoy reading weeklies, especially Macleans, which I use to keep up to date on the news. I think I’d also enjoy reading People. But, my favourite magazine that is on the basic list is Bon Appetit. The recipes are just stunning.

A recent discovery of a magazine that I found is HGTV magazine, which has so many great ideas for the home and is quite a large magazine. The cover price is a little expensive, so getting it for almost the cover price along with a number of other magazines is really a steal.

Keep checking back for new Next Issue coupon codes in the forum, and remember that this one doesn’t expire until Halloween. It would make a great gift for someone you love as well.

National Geographic Traveler Digital Only $10 Per Year

Posted by on August 10, 2014 at 8:30 AM

National Geographic Traveler Digital Only $10 Per Year

National Geographic is offering a digital subscription to their National Geographic Traveler Magazine for only $10 per year.

The digital package is the same price for Canadians, in our own currency, as it is for Americans in their currency.

This subscription includes the iPad version. I price compared this offer with Zinio as they are the leading magazine subscription service that I know about. They offer the National Geographic Traveler yearly subscription for $17.95 a year plus taxes. You will have to pay taxes going directly through National Geographic as well, but their subscription is approximately $8 cheaper. A cheaper subscription also means fewer taxes.

There are two other options when you click through the link, and though they look provocative, the subscriptions cost more for Canadians. You can pick up a yearly subscription in print for $17.95, which is the same price of the digital subscription from Zinio. There is also a Print Plus edition that comes with the iPad digital version and a printed copy of the National Geographic Traveler delivered to your door eight times a year. The Print Plus option costs $24.95 a year for us lovely people north of the border.

There are eight issues per year. If you purchase the digital subscription, that is just $1.25 per issue. You could never pick up a National Geographic magazine on a shelf at Chapters for that price.

This deal has a lot of personal appeal to me. I love to travel and am always looking for amazing architectural and archeological places to visit. Searching the internet for this kind of thing is like trying to find a needle in a hay stack. However, National Geographic has years of experience traveling around the planet. I would love to see the planet through their eyes and use their experience and amazing photos to guide my next vacation. Daniel’s and my first major vacation together was guided by the BBC’s documentary Earth: A Biography, specifically the volcanoes episode. We went to Rotorua in New Zealand, which is one of the most volcanically active areas on the surface of the planet. Our trip to Iceland was also guided by the same documentary, as it is the one place on earth you can see the split in the earth’s crust rise above the ocean. I think that vacations guided by geographical knowledge are the best.

Where are you heading for your next vacation?

Zinio.com: STAR Electronic Magazine Subscription 25% off!

Zinio.com:  STAR Electronic Magazine Subscription 25% off!

Is there anything better than curling up under a tree, watching the kids play, with a nice magazine?  How about if you don’t even have to carry a magazine around, and can access it on your favourite electronic device?  Here’s a deal to help you kick back and relax: Get STAR magazine at 25% off as part of Zinio.com’s sale of over 150 titles at up to 50% off!

Is there anything better than a weekly dose of celebrity gossip?  It is the perfect diversion for me while the kids are running around the yard or the park.  I find magazines really nice because as much as I love a good book, they are hard to put down and pick up over and over.  Magazines offer such short articles that I can drop it in an instant to join the kids in the sandbox and pick it up no problem again afterwards.  I really enjoy the world of electronic magazines, meaning I don’t actually have to remember to bring the magazine with me while I’m rushing out of the house.  Just download the free app on your Apple, Android, or WIN8 device and you’re ready to read.  Another HUGE benefit for me is that there is no physical magazine to discard when I’m done reading.  I tend to be a bit of a magazine hoarder and that gets out of control pretty quickly.  Thank goodness to Zinio for saving me from myself.

STAR was my top pick from this sale because it comes weekly meaning I am less likely to run out of reading material, and covers all aspects of entertainment.  Zinio is currently offering 52 issues of STAR for $16.40 (reg. $21.87), which works out to only $0.32 per issue!  That is a totally unbeatable price.

Just for comparison’s sake, to get a paper copy of this magazine delivered to you through onestopsubscriptions.com you’re looking at $90.49 for the year.  Subscribing directly through Starmagazine.com will cost you $34.84.

Zinio offers continuous service so you will never miss an issue, and will be notified and billed automatically at the end of your subscription, although you can cancel the continuous service at any time.

Some other great titles available at up to 50% off from Zinio right now are OK! Magazine, O, The Oprah Magazine, and Cosmopolitan.

This deal is on until the end of the month.  Happy reading!
