EDIT: January didn't bring a ton of new options, but the super-rare ESPN the Magazine AND Sports Illustrated offers are back for February!
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 Rolling Stones magazine subscription. 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. My favorite is the free ESPN magazine offer because it also brings with it free access to all the ESPN Insider articles and guides on ESPN.com.
After signing up and completing a survey around 20 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. All in all it takes me under 5 minutes (usually broken up during commercial breaks while watching comedies!) to get enough credit for the most expensive magazine offers.
If you're a new member and want one of the more expensive offers, like a free Sports Illustrated magazine subscription, fret not! Simply refer a few friends and you're account will instantly be credited with $3 each.
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 🙂
