A while back I got a magazine subscription for my wife for a gift. After shopping around I got the subscription at Amazon. They had the best price I could find at the time. However I had to use their magazine subscription service to qualify for the rate.
They have several popular titles for cheap : Magazines under $12 including $5 off select magazines until July 6th.
Some examples :
Popular Science (1-year auto-renewal) for $7
Marie Claire (1-year auto-renewal) for $5
Country Living (1-year auto-renewal) for $7
Good Housekeeping (1-year auto-renewal) for $7.97
I would also try checking the prices using Ebates to get a 26% cash back at Magazines.com. Some magazines will be cheaper going that route.
I usually have 1-2 magazine subscriptions on and off. I get the subscriptions because I like to have a magazine to read on the plane when I'm traveling and in other such situations. Generally I've found that I spend a lot less with a discounted subscription than I would spend buying 1-2 magazines at the newsstand at full price. For this reason magazine subscriptions are a good buy for me.
