National Geographic: Digital Subscription – Just $15

Posted by on July 23, 2014 at 10:30 PM

National Geographic: Digital Subscription   Just $15

National Geographic is offering Digital Subscriptions to their monthly magazine for just $15 CAN a year.

The subscription includes Digital editions for iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire and the Online Archive. This offer is available for new orders only, not for renewals. A one-year subscription includes twelve monthly issues, which works out to $1.25 an issue. Not only do you get twelve months worth of new material, you also have access to over 125 years worth of National Geographic archives. I cannot even fathom how much time I could spend going through those archives reading articles, looking at pictures, and learning so much about our planet and its history. With your subscription, you also receive a one-year membership to the National Geographic Society.

Through the link above, you can also receive deals on the print and print plus digital subscriptions. For Canadians, you can get a twelve-month National Geographic print subscription for $26. That works out to $2.17 a month, which is far below newsstand prices. The print only addition does not come with online access to the archives or to the digital versions, which have pictures that never appear in the print versions.

If you like to have access to both the Print and the Digital version so you can take full advantage of that archive, then the subscription rate is $32. That works out to $2.67 a month. For both the Print Only and the Print Plus subscriptions, allow 4-6 weeks for delivery of the first print edition issue.

I price compared the digital version with Zinio who had the subscription for $24. I tried price comparing with Kobo, but they do not have National Geographic as a magazine option.

There is only one magazine I want to subscribe to, and that is National Geographic. I absolutely love nature (as you can see by my budding BBC Earth collection), and their magazine has the best pictures and most informative articles. My father has a whole stack of National Geographic Magazines, from before I was born, sitting in his basement gathering dust. I plan to make pilgrimage back to my parents someday just to dig them up and read some of the old articles. I will never forget the yellow borders and the beautiful pictures I stared at as a child. i can’t wait to get my hands on the digital version for a year. Good-bye spare time.

Canadian taxes are calculated per provincial rate.

Kobo Books Canada: $0.99 Magazine Issues

Posted by on July 5, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Kobo Books Canada: $0.99 Magazine Issues

Kobo has a hot (sizzling even) deal on right now, where you can get one issue of a number of magazines for only $0.99. I love this deal because sometimes you just want some summer reading on the easy, and one issue is all you need. Paying less than $1 for an issue of a magazine is very sweet.

There are a number of magazines available for this promotion, and I’d like to pick up a few of them. I’m an avid magazine reader, although I still go the print way, but really I don’t know why. I can save so much money getting it on my tablet, plus save the environmental costs of printing it. Plus, I don’t have that extra clutter of the magazine lying around. I can also take my tablet with me and choose what I want to read, rather than a bulky magazine that I might forget (and always do). I don’t know how many times I’ve been at the park with my kids while they play wishing I had something to read instead of staring into nothingness.

Some of the ones I’d like to sink my teeth into include:

  • Cosmopolitan – you can’t beat this magazine for all the latest in sex and beauty
  • Oprah – pretty much my favourite mag
  • Real Simple – I love the recipes and organization tips
  • Self – great fitness and health and well-being articles
  • Esquire – while I wouldn’t need a subscription for this one for myself, I’d buy this issue just to hear Mark Wahlberg’s take on fatherhood

Bargainmoosers, what is your favourite magazine? Give me some ideas on what issues I need to get for $0.99, just in case the ones I’ve chosen aren’t enough!

Wagjag Canada: 1-Year GQ or Maxim Magazine Subscriptions Just $19

Posted by on June 24, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Wagjag Canada: 1 Year GQ or Maxim Magazine Subscriptions Just $19

There is an awesome new deal of for all of our male Bargainmoose readers.  You can get either a 1 year subscription to Maxim or GQ magazine for just $19.

You will be able to choose from two different deals but both of them are the same price.

GQ Magazine:

If you were to buy each issue, you would be spending $72 a year instead of the low Wagjag offer of just $19.  That is a total savings of 74%, which is a great deal. They offer 12 issue a year and they are geared for men and they focus on everything from your clothing and hair styles, to fitness, gadgets and sex life.  It is a well rounded magazine for men that is both entertaining and useful. The actual name of it is Gentleman’s Quarterly and it has actually been around for over 50 years now.

Maxim Magazine:

This is a magazine that is the ultimate guy’s guide to women.  It focuses on entertainment, beautiful women, sports, style, beautiful women, cars, beautiful women, sex and more beautiful women. I can’t think of a man that would not love to get this as a gift just for the pictures in it alone! It has 10 issues per year and if you were to buy each issue without this deal, you would be spending a whopping $70 instead of just $19 with Wagjag.

Both deals will come in a voucher form and there will be no additional charges, such as shipping or taxes. You will be able to purchase one voucher per household and up to 5 vouchers for gifts. I know my husband would love to get either of these subscriptions as a gift so I may get him the GQ one.  I actually like to read it as well sometimes so it would get a lot of use out of it.

Zinio Canada: 2 Years For the Price of 1 On Bestselling Magazines

Posted by on April 26, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Zinio Canada: 2 Years For the Price of 1 On Bestselling Magazines

If your Mom likes to read, a super Mother’s Day gift for her would be a new magazine subscription. Get two years of some top magazines for the price of one year. Also, Zinio is offering $5 magazine subscriptions just for moms.

One of my favourite indulgences is sitting on my porch and reading a magazine from cover to cover. I love getting magazines right into my mailbox and get giddy on the days they come. I have a number of subscriptions, but there are more that I’d love to get. I love that I can get two years for the price of one as it saves me the trouble of renewing next year.

Saveur is one of my most favourite magazines with delicious recipes and stories of food from all around the world. Reading this magazine my mouth actually salivates and makes me want to cook or travel. It is so well-written too that it makes me wish I was a food writer. You’ll get two years (18 issues) for only $22.10, which is pretty amazing as the newsstand price is about $6 an issue.

If you are looking for some great ideas for mom and don’t have a lot to spend, how about spending $5.53 for 10 issues of More, which is a magazine for women 40+. I actually get this magazine even though I’m in my 30s and I find it very informative. 12 issues of Today’s Parent for $5.53 is also quite the steal! This Canadian magazine has all the information you need to be a Canadian parent including advice, craft ideas and uniquely Canadian events.

Shipping is always included in your subscription price.

I always love a good magazine deal at WagJag but this one is a really great one. You can get a one year Chatelaine subscription, a free spring tote and a free $10 gift card to Chapters Indigo for just $25.

If you are unfamiliar with Chatelaine, you will get 12 issues in total over the year.  It offers fresh & modern recipes, entertaining ideas and menu planning tips, fun home projects and simple cluster-busting solutions and has a ton of fashion advice for women. It is a well rounded woman magazine.

You will have until May 17th 2014 to use this voucher and you buy one for yourself or as many as you would like for gifts. Something like this would make a perfect Mother’s Day gift. It looks like you spent so much money but it was just $25.

Additionally, you will also get free shipping and the taxes are included so there will be no hidden fees or costs added on.

It doesn’t say how long it will take for your first issue to be delivered but it is usually 4-8 weeks after you redeem your voucher and the deal expires.

Zinio Canada Coupon Code: 40% Off Any Magazine Subscription

Get 40% off any magazine subscription at Zinio with promo code for only 48 hours!

Click here to choose your newly loved magazine @ ca.zinio.com now

  • Coupon Code: NOFOOLING
  • Discount: 40% off
  • Expiry: 2nd April 2014

Zinio has a wide selection of magazines available, so there really is something for everyone. I used to get about 10 subscriptions a month, but was finding no time to read them all, so I basically didn’t renew any of my subscriptions. Now, I have nothing to read and I really would love a new subscription to something. There is just something about sitting back on the couch and devouring a magazine from cover to cover. That is probably one of my favourite me time activities.

This offer can’t be used with PayPal orders or combined with any other offer either. One frustrating aspect about this site is that you can’t see how much your actual subscription will be until you’ve entered in your credit card information. That is very off-putting for me.

One magazine I’d love to start getting is Shape magazine. I love reading the articles about weight loss and discovering new exercises. It is $19.87 for 12 issues, but with the promo code, it would be $11.92.

I absolutely love Clean Eating magazine and I’m actually following their meal plan right now, which is great because it gives you simple ideas for snacks and you want to follow it simply because it is so easy. It is normally $27.63 for 8 issues, but you’ll pay only $16.58! That’s only $2 an issue. I usually buy in-store because I haven’t gotten around to getting a subscription and pay about $7 an issue I think.

Shipping is included. Don’t forget to check out Zinio in the Bargainmoose forum and find more coupons as they pop up.

WagJag Canada: Style and Home or Canadian Gardening Magazine Subscription Up To 52% Off

WagJag Canada: Style and Home or Canadian Gardening Magazine Subscription Up To 52% Off

WagJag has done it again.  Yet another awesome magazine deal to take advantage of.  You will be able to save up to 52% on a one year subscription to either Style at Home or Canadian Gardening magaine.

There are 2 options to choose from:

  • $12 for a one year subscription to Style at Home (a $24.95 value)
  • $11 for a one year subscription to Canadian Gardening (a $22.95 value)

Both of these deals have free shipping with them and you will get your first issue within 6-8 weeks of activation.

I currently get the Style at Home magazine from the last time WagJag had a deal and I love it. It offers tips on home decor ideas, interior design trends, kitchen and bath designs, bedroom makeovers, food and entertaining recipes and more.

The Canadian Gardening magazine subscription is something that interests me.  Most gardening magazines are geared towards the US so they have tips for their weather.  They also are geared towards their seasons and it is so different in Canada with our weather.  In fact, even different provinces have different weather so they focus on that, which is great.  You will find all sort of tips including tips on garden design (inside and out), vegetable gardens, healthy recipes and more.

Zinio Canada: 2 Yr Magazine Subscription For The Price Of 1

Don’t miss your chance to get a 2 year subscription to select popular magazines at Zinio for the price of just one year!

Honesty is the best policy, right? When it comes to books, magazines and reading in general, I much prefer doing so in paper format. Whether it’s the smell of the books or the feel of flipping those plastic-like magazine pages, there is just something about it that I love. But this is the year 2014 and in this day and age, everything has become digitized and rightfully so too.

With this being said, when I’m on the go, then my eReader comes with me everywhere I go. It’s just so much easier than trying to bring a million and one books in my already overstuffed purse but when it comes to magazines, then I like to use my iPhone to catch up on the latest scoop, discover new recipes and get new romance ideas with the help of Zinio’s app.

With an ever expanding library of magazines, their newsstand, as they call it, features plenty of the most popular magazine and in fact, with the 2-for-1 special, here are just some of the ones that you can use this promotion on:

And those are all the ones that I would personally like to subscribe to as well! What about you? Which ones are your top picks?
