Thread Details

$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)

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.

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.

Actually, I don't think I've ever seen many of those for $2 for a whole year (some of the cheaper one's are far off, but Oprah and Entertainment Weekly are typically much more). Tempting, but having to call to cancel is a pain... That said, I could use a prepaid debit card with just a few dollars left on it.

you need to step away from your browser for a few hours and drink a glass of water, maybe get some sunshine.

Thank you!

I've been anxious to see what kind of coupons they have, and didn't want to spend a lot to find out!

Whoa now folks! I must disabuse you of any of the ancient hype about the coupons in All You. Do not subscribe for the coupons. They are near-worthless now. Gone are the days of free-item coupons and anything exciting.

I think I must have ordered Time last year through a similar offer, maybe the same company as it was $2. It just came up for renewal. I was notified by email and I called and was able to cancel without speaking to a human. I checked online because I honestly didn't remember the offer and it appears I could have just gone online to cancel also.

Most of the time, super-cheap magazine deals will only take credit cards as payment because they want a method where they can automatically charge you if you fail to cancel at the end of the year.

Get yourself a prepaid credit card (I got one with no fee through my credit union, and then I got a couple through rebates) and save it to use for things like this and any free or cheap trials where you don't want them to auto-renew, or where you need a different form of payment to get a second free trial, etc (in which case you would need more than one prepaid card). You can also just buy a prepaid card in a store; I think they charge up to a $5 activation fee, but that actually would still be worth it to take advantage of some freebies and deals for which you don't want to use your regular credit cards (or in your case, because you dont have a CC at all).

Holy cow, just noticed this includes Vanity Fair -- you *never* get that for $2! Lots of good magazines in there besides All You. Now I've got to decide whether to get it -- I really like Vanity Fair, but I have too many subscriptions already that I don't keep up with reading. Very tempted though.
