Some magazine have a $0.99 processing fee. While note bad, I did not include them on this list since they're not 100% free. I've only listed 100% free subscriptions below!
Free magazine subscriptions in exchange for random surveys have been a staple in the freebie scene for as long as I can remember. RewardsGold is obviously #1 in that department, but RewardSurvey is another I've talked about a few times on here and right now they're offering a rare free ESPN the Magazine and New York Magazine subscriptions. One of the main reasons I keep coming back to RewardSurvey is they tend to always have at least one rare, exclusive free magazine offer.
After signing up and completing a short survey (usually around 20 basic questions), you'll get $20 credited to your account that allows you to request most of the free magazines they offer. You can then log back in once a week, take the new survey, and add more free money to your account that can be redeemed for more free magazines or refer a few friends. All in all it takes me under 5 minutes (usually broken up during commercial breaks while watching TV) to get enough credit for the most expensive magazine offers.
Finally, if you want a magazine that's only marked as available for “new subscribers,” try signing up a different member in your household! Live alone? Use your middle name 🙂
