07/30/2012 UPDATE - The deal is still alive with a new list. There are "only" 17 magazines in the list this time, but most of them are new to the list.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Amazon is offering Current Issues of many magazine Kindle Editions for $0.00. Look for a "Buy Now with 1-Click" button and a "Buy Current Issue $0.00" box. No subscription is required. Unfortunately, they are not available for non-color Kindles and are mostly available for iPad/iPhone only.

The full list is located here [amazon.com]. As of right now, the list includes the following magazines:
  • Elle
  • House Beautiful
  • Taste of Home
  • Redbook
  • Teen Vogue
  • The Family Handyman
  • Cosmopolitan
  • Vegetarian Times
  • Arts & Crafts Homes
  • FamilyFun
  • Yoga Journal
  • Car and Driver
  • Old House Interiors
  • Birds and Blooms
  • Reminisce
  • Farm & Ranch Living
  • Golf World

From the link "How current issues work" just under the Buy Current Issue.

"After you place your order, we will share your name, billing address, and order information with the publisher. See Kindle Subscriptions for more information."

Look for the second box on the right, it says Buy Current Issue $0.00.

I added a screenshot to the OP. I had checked it in a private browsing session, so it should not be account-specific.

This is a great deal! I'm surprised it hasn't gotten more love. You should post it in the Hot Deals section IMO.

+1 and rep.

Thanks for the reps and thumbs up. I am a relative newbee on SD, so I was wary of posting a digital-only deal in Hot Deals. I'll wait a bit longer to see if the interest picks up and maybe will then ask a mod to move it there.

I am not sure. Normally, you could read Kindle books using Kindle for PC, as love_guru pointed out, but it seems that most of these magazines are only for iPad/iPhone and, less often, for Fire or Android.

Finally!!! I do not have a kindle but I do have it on my iphone.This will make my life so much easier.Now if I could only copy and paste the parts of the mag I want to keep somewhere on my phone,this would be perfect! Instead of carrying around my mags physically,I can do it digitally.

Thanks Smilie
