Free subscriptions: Elle and more


I’ve got more magazines for you!  Elle and Elle Decor, and Woman’s Day are offered through Mercury Magazines.  Finally, RewardsGold is giving a free sub to Body + Soul.  As always, comments on these magazines or their offering sites are welcome and encouraged.  Since I already get a ton of free magazines, I can’t take part in every offer, so feedback from others is helpful.  To explore these magazines’ websites before you decide to get your free subscription, click any of the titles below.

Another magazine offer!

I have been able to keep my word when it comes to magazines.  I won’t pay for them!  Why should I when I can get them for FREE?

The latest offer I found was for Smithsonian.  This one is from RewardsGold, so you will have to fill out a review/survey before you are taken to the offer page.

If museums aren’t your thing, go here for another RewardsGold offer for Prevention magazine.

I’ve successfully gotten mags from them before, so the offers shouldn’t give you any problems.  As always, enjoy!

Read free and help others

I’ve posted freebies for readers before, but this time you can help a charity while enjoying your freebie.  Avon books is sharing excerpts of some upcoming romance novels and fully browsable copies of already-released books online.  Check out the new releases to help their Love Gives Back campaign!  According to the site,

For every 100,000 pages browsed from these new titles, Avon will donate 100 books to ProLiteracy Worldwide, an organization that promotes literacy around the world. Each month, from August 13, 2008, through December 23, 2008, we’ll donate up to 1,000 books, so start reading and share the love!

All you lovers of the love stories, get browsin’!

FYI: If you like this this ‘reading for free’ thing (aside from your library, of course!), check out the publisher’s other free-to-read online books here.

Magazines galore!

I have seen so many magazine offers lately that I had to share them with you. Feel free to click on the magazine’s name to check out that magazine’s homepage before responding to the free offer, if you wish.

Free magazine issue

Want a little luxury for free?  Get a no-committment issue of Robb Report Magazine here from Start Sampling.  (The offer was sponsored by  If you’re not yet signed up on Start Sampling’s website, I encourage you to join and get the September issue, with no need to cancel!

I’ve never read this magazine before, but I ordered the issue because it looked intriguing.  If it were a whole year, I admit, I wouldn’t have signed up for it because I wouldn’t want to waste the paper and energy getting unwanted issues of an unfamiliar magazine that I end up not liking.  Has anyone out there in Readerworld ever picked up an issue of this mag?
