It’s been a busy month at my ‘day job’ so I have been slow in postings.
To make up for the slack, here’s a giveaway for my readers.
I have 10 free magazine subscriptions to give-away from Zinio.com
Not familiar with Zinio.com?
Zinio has thousands of top magazines from around the world and you can browse and purchase subscriptions or single issues instantly from your computer or mobile device to read wherever and whenever you like.
Their explore section lets you read – even without a subscription – thousands of articles from your favorite magazines and share them with friends.
If you go to http://www.zinio-deals.com/december12/ you can see a lot of magazines that are going for 50% off at the moment. The offer ends Jan 7!
If you are looking for Christmas Baking, Christmas Gifts, Christmas Party and other Christmas ideas, they have a special offer too at http://www.zinio.com/holiday2012
I used to borrow the magazines like MacUser and MacWorld from the National Library. I could guess when the magazines will arrive and will be the first to borrow them when they were ‘brand-new’. At times, I don’t get it because it was such hot items.
I wanted to find a way that I can get the magazines and keep it as well. I got my very first iPad in 2010 and I also discovered Zinio! At that time, the prices were in £ and USD. It was still cheap though. I paid £12.72 for Macworld for example.
You know how much it costs when Borders (when it was still around) and Kinokuniya. (even after the member’s discount that I still have).
Here’s a screenshot of my account that I can see when I log in.
It’s also available for Android devices. Search for Zinio in the Apple App Store or Google Play.
I recommend that you download it. You can read samples of magazines too if you are not ready to buy them. Some articles are quite interesting.
After I got married, the wife and I are buying even more magazines and started to share magazines as well. We each have an iPads and each of us read ‘our’ magazines on our iPads. We use a single account so that both of us can read other magazines that the other person buys.
My magazines are: Esquire, MacLife, Mental_floss, Dwell, Maxim, Nylon Guys.
Her magazines are: Whole Living, Woman’s Day, Good Housekeeping, Eating Well, Home & Decor.
Our shared magazines are: Appetite Asia, Delicious (Australia), Epicure, Food Network, Saveur.
We used to buy the physical copies, but it costs us quite a bit and we had to be selective so that it’s within our budget. Now, with so many, it costs less than the 4-5 magazines we used to buy!
If you would like a subscription to your favourite magazine, here’s what you do:
Leave a comment below, stating your title you want.
The first 10 who leave a comment and tell me what magazine you would like will get it.
Email me at keropokman @ gmail.com your name and email address and title you want. Zinio needs this info to let you redeem the electronic magazines.
You need to complete BOTH Step 1 and Step 2.
(Step 2 is to prevent your email address from being exposed to the world.)
Enjoy this giveaway and Merry Christmas!
