WIKI HAS BEEN EDITED & OVER-HAULED 8/26/09 IN ORDER TO UPDATE ACTIVE LINKS, REMOVE DEAD LINKS, AND SEPARATE ACTIVE OFFERS FROM DEAD OFFERS.

In order to make this Wiki document a living & useful document, we need everyone's help in keeping it updated, or at least in posting any necessary updates so the Wiki can be revised accordingly. So when you add a new Mercury offer or take advantage of an existing offer:

1) If you add a new offer, please provide the Mercury link followed by the name of the magazine, and then "Link Valid as of MM/DD/YEAR"
2) If you take advantage of an existing offer that still works, please update the "Link Valid" date to the most recent date that the link worked for you.
3) If you take advantage of an existing offer that no longer works, please remove the link and add the magazine title to the "Dead", keeping the most recent date offered.

When you seek a subscription on Mercury.com, if the check box for a magazine is empty and you can't check it, it means that offer is DEAD. See the picture below for what a good offer looks like. When you discover a dead link, please edit the wiki or post in this thread to let everyone know!

Why keep the the expired offers & the dates?-
1) To see if ___ magazine is ever offered from Mercury - not every magazine is offered.
2) to see how long ago ___ magazine was offered - if it was just last week, then no point in looking for it to return any time soon.
3) if all the dates are left intact, you could see if ___ magazine is offered every 3 months, or 1x a year...or what the pattern is.
If you are looking for a specific magazines, each of these might be important to know....depending on the answer, you may decide to buy a subscription instead of waiting.

Make sure to check back often for new offers, both here and in the magazines forum.

Big Thanks DokTor for putting this information into a new, more useful format.

Not only is mercury LIKE Freebizmags, it was started by defectors FROM freebizmags! Frankly, In think freebizmags has grounds for a lawsuit consider how closely their form and function resembles their own but who am I to look a free gift magazine in the mouth?? hehehe.

The big difference with Mercury though is there is no option to oput in a Home address, so if you want it sent to your home, you need to use a business name that won't freak out your postal carrier. Since I belong to and run a community garden, I use "XXX Community garden project" as my business title since I often get mail addressed to me that way.

Yes, in fact I think that on FBM's website they say that their unique trade magazine questionairre system has a patent pending, so they may have a chance. nod

I have to say both have there pluses and minus of the way they do things for the magazines. I like that AFM gives you other options etc.. while they are similar they are not exactly the same. Mecury has had more offers lately.
