Prime Reading FREE to Read Latest Issues include Shutterbug

If you are a Prime member, one of the many Prime Benefits is the “Prime Reading” feature that allows you to read a number of items for FREE. This includes e-books (around 1000 options), along with some comic books and single magazine issues (typically the latest issue).

Among the latest Free to Read Magazines is the September 2017 issue of Shutterbug, along with the August 2017 issue of Consumer Reports and the August 2017 issue of WIRED.

You can read as many eligible items as you want with Prime Reading, however, you can only have ten items checked out at a time. So if you are interested in a lot of things, get a mix of things you will read quickly and things you’ll read slowly, so your ten spots won’t be taken over by slow-reading material. Of course you can still return and re-pick them at any time.

Once you borrow an item, you can keep it as long as you want. While you keep it, it will take one of your ten slots.

Photographer Freebies on Tuesday July 18 T-Mobile Tuesdays: Free Prints and N.Geo N.Parks e.Book

If you are a T-Mobile customer, rejoice! They finally have some photography-themed freebies for their July 18 (2017) “T-Mobile Tuesdays” freebies. Anyone who is a paying T-Mobile customer qualifies for these offers, and better yet, you get one set of freebies per line, not per customer or main account holder.

If you are not familiar, you can get the freebies at the T-Mobile Tuesdays website or by downloading their Tuesdays app (this is a separate app, not the regular T-Mobile app). Prepare for your screen to be taken over by magenta overload 🙂 You login using your T-Mobile account number and password. If you have multiple accounts, login with each phone number if you want to claim more than one set of freebies.

For Tuesday July 18, 2017, the two photographer freebies are:

  • free digital prints with free shipping from the Freeprints service: ten 4×6″ and two 5×7″
  • free e-book version of National Geographic’s National Parks. This comes from the BookShout service, not the popular ebook reading services. You can read it on the web or using the Bookshout app. No DRM-free downloads as far as I know

Also, some of the prizes to be won (if you play the “games” on their app or website include National Geographic prizes.
