Next To Free Magazine Subscriptions - Has Amazon Gone Crazy?

Incredible Subscription Offers - Not To Be Missed

Amazon, the mother of all online book sellers, has seemingly gone crazy. It has come up with unbelievable offers for magazine readers and lovers and is actually giving away magazine subscriptions for a fraction of their regular price. In the month of April 2010, Amazon is making an incredible offer - two year subscriptions for the price of one.

At first I didn’t believe it when I saw the blog post announcing this incredible offer, but then I decided to check it out for myself and found it to be quite true. And incredible, to say the very least.

What makes the offer even better is the massive variety of magazines available for subscription on Amazon, and the offer is available on most top magazine subscriptions! With the already phenomenally low rates offered by Amazon on the regular bookshelf prices, this offer is nothing but a steal. Whatever be the interest of any reader, it is there for the taking.

I checked out some of the top subscribed magazines to be seen on Amazon. In fact there are so many (over 47500 magazines at last count) that this list is woefully inadequate. Yet I just had to get this message across to my fellow hubbers. There is clearly something for every kind of reader.

Here’s the list of the top ten bestsellers on Amazon on which the deal is available, and a quick rundown on what they are all about.
