Prime Members: Free 4-Month Magazine subscriptions (includes Popular Photography)

If you are an Amazon Prime member, for a limited time (until 10/14/15), Amazon offers you free four month subscriptions on up to three magazines, from a choice of 22 options. Options include Popular Photography, Wired, Popular Science, and such.

THE CATCH is that after the first four months, the subscription converts to an auto-renewing subscription at $12 per magazine per year. So if you want to get those four free months but don’t want to pay later, make sure you cancel before it converts to a paying subscription. Existing subscribers are not eligible. More details at the Terms/Conditions over there.

Experimental Amazon Feature: 7-Day Free Full e-Book Trials

If you like to check out photography, camera or any other e-books in the full before buying, there is a welcome new experimental feature at Amazon, 7-day free full e-book trials. This is not the old “receive a sample”. You get the whole e-book for seven days to read. I don’t know what the scale of this experiment is, I just discovered this on the individual product page for the “How to Diagnose and Fix Everything Electronic” e-book.

PS: this post serves as an alert until I finish writing a more reference-y post and move that to the main blog…

Pop Photo for $5 for one year (with auto-renewal)

If you are a fan of printed magazines with automatic renewal, Amazon has a $5 Magazine Sale that includes a 1yr Popular Photography Magazine subscription (printed edition, 12 issues in 12 months, for $5, with auto-renewal). Other magazines are also participating but the duration and offers vary. The only constant is the $5 price. For example, there is a Wired All Access + Hat offer for $5 that gets you six months of Print + Digital issues (= All Access) of Wired, and a Wired …baseball hat.

NOTE #1: for auto-renewal subscriptions, when it is time for renewal, they will automatically charge you the future-current price (at renewal time), not the initial price you paid. I may have to do one of these just to see how they work.

NOTE #2: if you don’t like auto-renewals, fear not, DiscountMags has recurring photography magazine offers that are NOT auto-renewal.

(ENDED) Pop Photo or Outdoor Pho for $4.80/yr, Digital Photo Pro for $7/yr & more

This weekend promotion expired… If you missed it, fear not, magazine specials are recurring every few days/weeks…

Auto-renewal photo magazines for $5 per year: American or Pop Photo

If you are a fan of magazines with auto-renewal (they renew automatically unless you manually change it or cancel them), Amazon has a couple of photography magazines for $5 per year, American Photo and Pop Photo. Only the auto-renewal options are discounted at Amazon.

If you are not fond of auto-renewals, fear not. DiscountMags has recurring photography and other magazine specials without auto-renewals.

Speaking of Amazon, if you are fond of astrophotography, the Blu-Ray of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey with Neil deGrasse Tyson is on sale for $22 per set, with a limit of three sets per customer. A great combination of learnings and entertainment, and a way to get younger people interested in the sciences.

Speaking of speaking of Amazon, if you are interested in the new Kindle Voyage, the wait is finally over for the Wifi without Special Offers. It is in-stock and ready to ship for $220 as of the time of writing. Also in-stock is the Wifi plus 3G with Special Offers for $270. The other two combinations have a February 6 in-stock estimate.
