This was discussed a while back but you can get free premium access to Encyclopedia Britannica online if you regularly write on the Internet. You can apply here. I've been using it for 2 years now. I applied just using my HubPages profile URL.
I just tried. It didn't recognize the HubPages profile URL, so I used my blog URL and added the HP one in the comments box. Whether they accept it or not remains to be seen, but the application is in the works anyway.

Thank you UW. I had to submit a single hub for the URL, then added I published on hubpages and linked to my profile page, in the comments section. Not sure that last link was necessary, but just received me e-mail approval.
