I've mentioned before that buying home magazines is my guilty pleasure; they just seem like a lot of money for some pretty bits of paper. Then my tip-top top-tip boyfriend told me about Zinio; a website where you can subscribe to magazines electronically for less monies.
The idea didn't really appeal to me at first- I like having a physical magazine to flip through/fold down the corners of/rip pages out of to stick on my cork board and drool over when I'm eating my breakfast at the weekend (not ACTUALLY drooling on them, you understand; I mastered eating cereal without dribbling the milk everywhere
But THEN Tom told me that if one signs up for an account with Zinio (get me, using "one"- it's like I'm the Queen!!) for free, a few days later they send you a $10 code, with no minimum spend! :) You can grab $10 worth of magazines for absolutely zilch. The issues I chose came to a little over $10, but two electronic magazines still only cost me 40p. I'm a little sad I can't hold them in my hands properly, but given that the off-the-shelf price would've been closer to £7 for both of them, I'm not going to start getting fussy.
|Price? Freeeee.... ish. Ok, 40p.|
P.S. This post wasn't sponsored by Zinio- I just like helping people get stuff for free :)
