$4/yr Wired or Women’s Health magazine (up to 3 yrs) November 7, 2010

What can you buy for $4 these days? How about spending $4 for a gift that lasts the WHOLE year? I currently subscribe to Women’s Health magazine (love it!) and have subscribed to Wired in the past (awesome articles!), and I have to say these prices are simply amazing!

Head over to DiscountMags to score a 1-year subscription to Wired for just $3.99 (when you use code 3800) or Women’s Health for just $3.99 (when you use code 1170). Subscribe yourself or give it as a gift!

I just tested these codes (6am CST 11/7/10) and they both work. However, these deals always have limited availability, so hurry up and place your order asap before they’re gone! When the codes no longer work, the deal is over!

33% OFF at Borders or Waldenbooks September 13, 2010

BordersIt seems “birthday season” is upon my household. Our refrigerator is getting plastered with birthday party invitations and my 4.5yo is starting his cake obsession again… It happens every fall. So, in anticipation of all these gifts, I’ve started really paying attention to when the bookstores offer coupons. I think books make the PERFECT gift (no batteries needed!), and you can give them with a gift receipt if there’s any question.

Here’s a coupon for 33% OFF the list price of any one item at Borders or Waldenbooks. Print a coupon and take it with you to the store, or use code BAE8295M online at Borders.com (and get FREE SHIPPING on orders of $25 or more). You’ll need to be a Borders Rewards member to use the deal, but it is free and easy to sign up.

Find a Borders or Waldenbooks near you.
