$5 magazine subscriptions – Real Simple, Southern Living, Cosmo and more November 28, 2009

Tis the season for killer deals on magazine subscriptions! Amazon has tons of popular magazines on sale right now for just $5/year — lower than the newsstand cost of one issue for some! Even better? These magazines qualify for FREE Super Saver Shipping, so that means when you just need to spend a few bucks more on something else on Amazon to get free shipping, you can add in one of these magazines to seal the deal. (Magazines aren’t actually charged shipping, they just help you get free shipping on other purchases.)

Here ya go!

$10 gets you TWO magazines for a YEAR: Everyday Food AND body+soul October 14, 2009

Yep, that’s right! You can get a full year (10 issues) of body+soul magazine PLUS a full year (10 issues) of everyday FOOD magazine for just $10 total for BOTH subscriptions! This would make a fabulous gift for a friend… or for YOU!

Folks, if you bought these on the newsstand, it would cost you $84.90, so this is a savings of nearly $75!

The only kicker to this deal is that both magazines go to the same recipient (at one single address).
