This is real, it is linked off the Windows 8 app page for Zinio, but it is not really $50 in credit that can be used on anything, only from a select page of magazines. Most of which are already free from my libraries Zinio account.
What would interest me is when these credits are used if they count as purchases for the refer a friend program. Get 20 codes, refer 20 friends and give them a code a piece, and possibly get $100 in full use Zinio credits.
May not be available to everyone but thought I'd give a heads up - my local library has many magazine subscriptions available for free on zinio. I just logged in to the library's website from home, connected it to my zinio acccount and chose as many as I wanted. Might want to check out if your local library has the same.
Not really $50 in credit, you get to choose a few "mini subscriptions" or single issues. It's more like an extended trial. Zinio sucks, even if a magazine is on there there's no guarantee it will be usable on your device (Nat Geo isn't usable on Android tablets, for example).
Zinio on the ipad is much much better than the built in newspaper thingy in iOS. I actually get an email notifying me a magazine is available, I click on the link inside the email and start reading it. Boom, that's it. I tap the screen the menu comes up. No logging in BS like the newspaper app in iOS requires. Every magazine in iOS newspaper app has its own username and password and constantly FORGETs the password, most of the time the Hearst magazines don't recognize the password, it's very frustrating.
Plus unlike iOS password forgetting app, I can put down the ipad and continue reading on my android phone.
