$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
Car and Driver
Cigar Aficionado
Cooking Light
Dwell
Ebony
Elle
Entertainment Weekly
Entrepreneur
Essence
Fast Company
Fortune
Golf Digest
Golf Magazine
Good Housekeeping

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.

I would give it 24 hours to get into their system (if you haven't already).

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! :-)
They're website can be tricky (probably on purpose). But what works for me is to get to the screen where it shows you your account status (I think it's called Order Status, it will show all your mags listed).

Then using the tabs at the top of the page, under Service Options, select "Other Service Inquiries" (not "Cancel A Subscription").

On the next page select "Cancelling a Subscription".

Then you'll get a page that gives you two options on the left hand side of the screen:

I want to cancel the renewal of my subscription

or

I want to cancel my subscription

On the other part of the page, you can can list the magazines where you want to cancel the renewals. Submit the form. Within a short period of time, you'll see on your status page that your subs are "Active, No Renewals".

I cancel the auto-renew and then I also make sure the cc # I use can't be used for renewals too...just in case.

HTH

What page takes you to all the mags listed under account status? Mine requires me to input a magazine since it says multiple found.

Awesome. I have bought many magazines in the past from B1zrate, almost always offered to purchase them after a Footlocker purchase. Recently made a couple of purchases from other retailers and completed the B1zrate survey, but was not offered the mag purchase option(not sure what triggers it). My son's Sports Illustrated mag recently expired after 4 years of getting for $2/yr, so finally renewed it. Also bought Runner's World in another thread SD thread.

Well, if you got your $$ credited back, why would you call your cc company?

You can try emailing them via their contact form at mybonuscenter - I've always gotten a response to emails.

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.

YEAH but it's 2 dollars for each magazine so if you pick multiple it can really add up.

A few dollars, $10, it's no biggie. You can just use a card with a bit more on it, or a few different cards. My credit union lets you get prepaid visas with no activation fee, so I get ones for $15 and $20 for various slickdeals where they seem useful. It's enough to pay a few small fees, not enough for the mags to charge a full subscription price. It may not matter anyhow, as though they've sent confirmation emails, they haven't charged my cards yet, so it may be a no-go anyway.
