ValueMags is giving away five free issues of Cosmo magazine. I can't wait to read what 17 traits I'm really looking for in a women or to take a quiz to find out if she's really that into me! For all the complaining guys do about women being so hard to figure out and understand, it seems like they have all the magazines deciphering the opposite sex. Shouldn't it be the other way around? We're really not all that complicated, I promise!16
Unfortunately this free Nylon magazine subscription looks like it's aimed at a teenage female demographic, but who am I kidding, I'll read anything in the morning while I'm eating my cereal. I've already read the box about a million times and then got so bored that I started looking up what all the weird vitamins were. Right around the time I googled “riboflavin” was when I spilled milk all over the laptop, so fingers crossed this magazine gets here soon.
(I'm home from my Thanksgiving holiday now, so back to the regular schedule. I've also gone through most of the applications for another writer and will be contacting people shortly!)

Can anybody explain the header image of this free Flying magazine from RewardsGold to me? Why are there so many bottle of water next to the magazine? I'm…I'm really baffled over here. Let's see, do any of the survey questions pertain to water? No. Does it mention getting a free sample of water with your magazine? I don't see that anywhere. Maybe they're warning against the danger of reading the magazine while dehydrated?
Oh well, I signed up for this freebie anyway. I used to love airplanes as a kid and for a while was hellbent on becoming a pilot. Then I was introduced to Mr. Algebra and realized I should probably select a career that involved writing. So what was my first freelance gig in college? Editing a math textbook. I swear, Irony is my most faithful friend.3
How does this(with $25 worth of coupons) even exist? Somebody explain to me how a condom company has a magazine without A) only publishing one issue before running out of fresh stories or B) having it quickly turn into a full fledged adult magazine. In fact, I almost wish I was in charge of that little operation. I'd have a blast coming up with new stories and articles month in and out. Ryan Goob – Editor of Durex Condom Magazine
Oh man, would that not look amazing on a resume or what? I'm telling you, I was born for that job!2
EDIT: Hope you got this when I posted it, because it's dead now!
This free Family Fun magazine subscription should come in handy the next time you're looking for something to do on Family Fun Night. There's only so many times you can play Scrabble and argue with your folks that “kwyjibo” is most certainly a word!2
Rewards Gold, the folks who were giving away the free Maxim subscription earlier this week, are now giving away free U.S. News And World Report magazine subscriptions. That sound you just heard was me jumping up and down, as I'm a news freak. Actual news that is, not that cable news crap. I've always enjoyed “articles” longer than a few paragraphs where “reporters” did something called “reporting,” instead of just reading a press release and then letting three talking heads yell at each other.
I guess I'm old school that way.4
I just realized I never mentioned the newest part of HIF – our revamped free magazines page! I've teamed up with Trade Pub (the company that offers pretty much every legit free magazine offer out there) to put together a pretty awesome list of magazine freebies.
I added a free magazine tab at the top of the page and Trade Pub updates the list of free magazines frequently. So whenever you're in the mood to see what's out there, just click the tab and have a look. I've already signed up for a free webmaster magazine subscription and there are something like two dozen plus different categories to pick from. You won't find many magazines like People, Time, or Newsweek but I promise you're bound to find an obscure free magazine or two that will peak your interest.
Heck, at the very least, you can sign up for a few random magazines and make some wicked collages. Nobody makes those anymore. It's a dieing art form if you ask me. And by “art form,” I of course mean “way to make chicks think your artistic.” They're just as random as a Rorschach Test and yet people view them as a window into somebody's soul. I'll let you in on a little secret, the only thing you can tell from looking at a collage I made is that I probably ate some glue in the process.
Let me know what you think about the new magazine section though.0
Would you believe I'm back already?! And to think, I was only kidnapped by rebel drug lords twice! I thought for certain I'd reach double digits in that category, but alas, even they could not manage to contain the elusive Goob. It looks like Adam did an awesome job of keeping things running here while I was gone, and for that, I think we all owe him a round of applause. Either that or just buy him a beer if you ever meet him in real life 🙂
I'll be honest, I worried that I might have forgotten how this whole freebie world worked while I was gone. But luckily, I quickly remembered as soon as I got home a few nights ago, as there was a giant pile of freebies sitting on my desk! And this morning, I decided to enjoy them. I drank my free Dunkin Donuts coffee, ate my free Crunch Crisp bar, and then went to read something. Turns out though, I hadn't signed up for this free TV Guide Subscription yet, so I was a little out of luck. I'm pretty sure this is for a full years subscription, so if you enjoy knowing what the heck is on TV, you might want to sign up for this.
Oh, and it's great to be back! I missed this little corner of the Internet of ours 🙂3
While the Playstation magazine no longer exists, (1997-2012 RIP) you can find a few free back issues on Archive.org.
free Playstation magazine subscription for six month might have been a bit more valuable before the PS3 came out! Man, did Sony botch that or what? I'll still probably sign up for it just because I like getting stuff in the mail besides bills 🙂
When I was about 10, my mom suddenly became a vegetarian. Oh what I would have given for something like thisbecause I had no idea what was going on. Suddenly we were eating soy burgers that tasted like cardboard instead of food. Hotdogs went out the window and in their place were some sort of strange item that tasted like wood. Luckily, my dad quickly learned how to cook non-meat items to make them taste well, but it took forever before I finally tried one of those darn Veggie Burgers again… 0
