How To Get Free Fashion Magazines!

GE

 

So, I’m finally writing about how I got all of these awesome fashion magazines for free. There is this site called RecycleBank (I can refer you here!), which allows you to do small actions to learn more about the environment, and make “greener choices”. You can also pay to earn points, although I’m not a big fan of that. Over the past year, I have logged in, taken little quizzes and watched presentations. This added up to over 1400 points, with which I chose 12 one-year subscriptions to various magazines. (Here are the subscriptions I ordered: Town & Country, Marie Claire, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Ladies’ Home Journal, Woman’s Day, Redbook, Seventeen, Essence, Instyle, Martha Stewart Weddings, and Good House Keeping.) Since the typical magazine subscription costs $20 annually, I managed to snag $240 worth of magazines for a total of zero dollars. How cool is that?

I love the quizzes and different pledges. Every time I get on, I learn about something new I can do to help better manage my resources and be a more eco-conscious consumer.

 

While there are other prizes available, including coupons to places like Bed, Bath and Beyond and gift cards, I prefer the magazines. Personally, I think it’s the better deal anyway –it takes about 150-400 points per magazine, and you can easily get 150 points every week. There are 36 magazine options to choose from (and there are some electronic subscriptions available as well.) In case you’re interested, I decided to list them all:

Redbook
Seventeen
Cosmopolitan
Family Fun magazine
Parents Magazine
Fast Company
Inc. Magazine

Outside Magazine
Sports Illustrated Kids

Afar Magazine

Well, I hope this helps! I personally love getting magazines in the mail, and so it works perfectly for me. Has anyone else used Recyclebank? What do you think?
