National Geographic Traveler Digital Only $10 Per Year

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?

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.

Amazon Canada: 64% Off National Geographic Daypack – Now $71

Amazon Canada: 64% Off National Geographic Daypack   Now $71

Amazon Canada is offering 64% off the National Geographic Kontiki Daypack in Khaki. Originally $200, the pack is on sale for $71.28.

Amazon Canada really doesn’t give much information on this backpack, so I had to look it up on other websites. First off, I found that this backpack was only on sale at Amazon in Canada, and the couple other places I found it both had it listed for full price. I did find it on sale at a couple places in the US, but the prices were still higher than Amazon Canada’s price. Here are some of the bag’s features:

  • 18″H x 13″W x 7″D
  • Laptop compartment holds most laptops up to a 15.6-in. screen
  • Adjustable shoulder straps
  • Exterior: one office organizer & two side zip pockets
  • Interior: three divided sections & one computer sleeve
  • Antique brass hardware finish

The daypack comes with a manufacturer’s five year limited warranty. The bag is made from recycled polyester fabric (eco-friendly) and looks like a distressed cotton canvas. This is a great everyday pack by the well known National Geographic.

Get free shipping on all orders of $25 or more at Amazon Canada. That means the daypack ships for free.
