$2 is the lowest I've seen for All You. Usually its around $15 or so. There are also quite a few other magazines listed, most of which I've seen elsewhere for $0-$5.

All You is a popular couponing magazine (it contains several higher value ones each issue)

https://www.mybonuscenter.com/10027446

The link is from completing the BizRate survey after a purchase I made earlier. No idea how long it'll be good for.

Here's the full list of magazines (as of this writing) A few seem to be only for 3 months. See the web site for the current list and all details.


Afar
All You
Autoweek
Better Homes and Gardens
Bloomberg Businessweek
Bowhunt America

The catch (yes, there is one) is that after the first year, it's auto-renewed at the full rate unless you cancel. They send you a postcard with an 800 number and a code to enter to cancel. You have to listen carefully to the questions when you call, as several are designed to be confusing along the lines of "Are you sure you want to cancel and also get this other magazine?" The correct answer being, "No".

That said, I've gotten magazines this way before, and never had a problem cancelling once the post card arrives. This is one of those scenarios where having a prepaid debit card to use instead of a regular credit card is good. Then they can't charge you to renew even if they want to.

Could someone please tell me how to get a Virtual CC?? I never can seem to find a post that gives you exact directions on how to get one.

Thank You Smilie

Just got an email confirming order of one of the two magazines. I never got an email for the order I placed a day before.

does this add on to existing subscriptions, of course with the same address and name?TIA
Quote from KPS View Post :
It should. If you end up with duplicates, contact the magazine directly via phone/email and tell them you're getting duplicates and they'll merge the two accounts.
Yes, they've always just added on to existing ones for me, and cancelling when the post card comes hasn't cancelled anything more than them charging full price for another year.

Deals like this on paper magazines are one reason I haven't switched over to digital delivery. Time being an exception, you can get free digital delivery in addition to your paper subscription from NextIssue, the Time app itself, and via Google Play magazines.

In fact, you should check all your magazines on Google Play to see if there are free digital versions for paper subscribers. You HAVE to check using your device (tablet/phone), you can NOT check using the Play web page.

Unfortunately the process varies by bank. Just sign in to your credit card account online, and look for a virtual credit card option. Not every bank (or even most?) offers the capability. A call to customer service might be useful too.

It might not be obvious from posts mentioning virtual credit cards, but they are alternate, temporary, credit card numbers tied to an actual normal have in your wallet credit card account.

I didn't order this time but I have ordered before from MyBonusCenter and I got my email confirmation shortly after ordering.

You might want to contact them about your order. Go to OP's link, and at the bottom click on 'Help'.

Thanks so much for the reply - I'll try the "Help" section.

Update: "Help" section was helpful! I'm in the system with Subscription ID number and correct magazines are listed - Hooray! Thanks again KPS for the advice!

Oh I'm glad it worked out! You can also cancel your auto-renew via their website. FYI

I've used this to get free magazines for years, and did once forget to call and cancel. I called afterwards, though, and was refunded for the un-mailed remaining issues. You can order magazines you like that you are already receiving, and when you start receiving duplicate issues, go to their website and request they consolidate your subscriptions.

Between this method and Mercury Magazines, I have Money magazine for several years and Entertainment Weekly free until the next decade!

Thanks for the post--I thought these BizRate offers timed out and didn't realize the link could be re-used.

PS: I went a bit overboard and was drowning in magazines, so transferred some I didn't want to receive anymore to my local hospital. Many institutions, doctor's offices, etc. love to get magazine donations for their patients and waiting rooms.

Wow, thanks for this--I HATE calling and listening to the endless convoluted prompts to cancel. Didn't realize they'd moved into this century and you can cancel via their website! :-)

I never received a confirmation email but the website shows a Subscription ID number and lists the 4 magazines I ordered with order status as Active. HOWEVER, I was only charged $2 so-o-o-o looks like we're in the same type of situation. Any advice from those familiar with this seller?

They don't charge for all magazines at the same time. Go into your account and choose "Billing Inquiry" and then "Future Billing".

Tip: If your credit card has a feature that creates "one time use" credit card numbers .. use it for this.

I always generate a new CC for this kind of thing, set the expiration date about 4 months in advance (just in case it takes a while for the subs to get charged.) .. If I forget to cancel when it auto-renews, the CC# should be non-existent and get declined.
