If you send your mail to a PO Box or at the office or don’t check mail regularly at the destination address, we have an alert for you! The Summer 2017 colorful printed B&H Photo catalog has been mailed and should be in your mailbox or very close to getting there! This is not your older cousin’s catalog. B&H also includes articles in-between the usual product categories and pages. This is over 300 pages long. You can sign-up for a catalog or view the catalog online or download it in PDF either as a whole or in parts at the B&H Catalog page.
The weekend magazine sale is back at DiscountMags with a $5 per magazine per year theme, which is good news if you are interested in “Digital Photo PRO” or “Videomaker” because they too are discounted to $5 per magazine per year. The other two photography magazines go for $5 per year as well (Outdoor Photographer, Digital Photo non-PRO) but that’s their “default” weekend sale price. These four are printed magazines delivered by mail to US addresses. You can sign-up as a new subscriber or renew or send them as gifts to others. They do not auto-renew. Offer ends Monday night.
UPDATE: I forgot to mention, all the magazines in this weekend’s sale are $5 per year, so it’s a good opportunity to get magazines that don’t typically drop down to $5.
The Zinio digital magazine subscription service has a new flash sale, coupon code FLASH40 gets you 40% off the prices of these eligible subscriptions. The coupon only works on subscriptions, not individual issues.

After Friday March 10 in 2017, the Popular Photography print magazine will stop getting published, and the websites of both Pop Photo and American Photo will no longer be updated with new content per dpreview. OUCH for photography magazines 🙁
Thanks to S. W. Anderson for the alert!
If you are a Prime member, one of the many Prime Benefits is Prime Reading. One of the Prime Reading benefits is that every month, you can borrow digital issues from a changing selection of magazines and read them.

The Magazine Selections for March include the latest issues from Shutterbug and Popular Photography and National Geographic among others.
The weekend is here and so is a new Weekend Sale at DiscountMags. The theme this time around is an Employee Discount sale of sorts. Four photography magazines are participating, three of them are under $5/year (Pop Photo for $4.60, Digital Photo or Outdoor Photo for $4.80). Digital Photo PRO is $7.85 per year. These are printed magazines delivered physically to US addresses. The usual terms apply. Offer expires Monday PM.

This weekend sale ended, but new sales are coming every weekend 🙂
The weekend is over and so is this promotion…
It is a “default sale” at the DiscountMags weekend sale, offering 1-year of printed Pop Photo or Outdoor Photographer or Digital Photo for $5 per magazine per year, while VideoMaker and Digital Photo PRO go for $8 per magazine per eyar. Meanwhile Shutterbug is offered as a 1-year Zinio digital subscription for $10.
UPDATE 1/26/17: the daily deal expired, but some of the featured magazines, including Pop Photo are $5 for the first year with an auto-renewing subscription.
ORIGINAL POST: One of the day-long Gold Box deals du jour at Amazon is a 1-year auto-renewal Magazine Sale featuring a soccer team of titles (11) with prices ranging from $4 to $5 per magazine, including 1-year for Popular Photography for $4 for the first year. The sale prices are only for the first year. After the first year (if not cancelled or manually renewed), these will auto-renew at the “future current” renewal rate.
PS: if you don’t like auto-renewals, there are offers every weekend at DiscountMags that don’t auto-renew.
This weekend sale ended…
The Weekend Magazine Sale at DiscountMags ending on Monday night is a “Top 100 sale”, featuring two print photography magazines going for $5 per magazine per year, with the usual terms. The two are Pop Photo and Outdoor Photoographer.
This weekend sale expired, but another one will come the next weekend…
If you are a Prime member, you automatically have the new “Prime Reading” benefit where you can borrow e-books or digital magazines from a preset selection. Among the magazines, the January 2017 selection includes the February 2017 edition of Shutterbug, along with the February 2017 issue of Consumer Reports, and a handful of other degrees-of-separation magazines (sports, fashion, nature, etc). You are borrowing these, you do not digitally-own them, but you can keep them as long as you like. Each one counts as one of your “ten out”. It’s like a library where you can have up to ten items out at any time, but you can return them and get new ones as many times as you want. You cannot read these on a desktop PC, either the Kindle apps (iOS, Android) or Amazon’s own hardware devices (Fire tablets or The Fire Phone).
UPDATE: Offer ends Monday night…

This weekend’s sale at Discount Mags is a Top 100 Best Prices of the Year type of a promotion, featuring two photography magazines among the many others. Both are printed glossy magazines delivered to US addresses, without auto-renewal. You pay $4 per magazine per year for Outdoor Photographer or Popular Photography. You can sign-up for up to three years per individual magazine, and individually select whether it’s a gift or new-subscription or a renewal. Offer ends Monday night.
This weekend sale ended as expected…
Magazines too are having a black friday sale, Discount Mags is offering 1-year delivered-by-mail print subscriptions to “Popular Photography” or “Outdoor Photographer” for $4 per magazine per year, “Digital Photo” for $4.25 per year, and “Digital Photo PRO” for $5.25 per year. These are some of their lowest prices. The usual terms apply, up to three years, good for new subs, renewals or gifts. These printed magazines delivered to your doorstep (USA addresses only) and they won’t renew automatically. The sale should be good until Sunday night.
Another weekend is here which means a new weekend sale at Discount Mags. This is the “default safe”, with 1-year subscriptions of glossy-printed-by-mail Popular Photography or Digital Photo or Outdoor Photographer going for $5 per magazine per year. “Digital Photo PRO” goes for its “default sale price” of $8 per year. The aforementioned are printed glossy magazines. Also participating is a 1-year Zinio digital subscription of Shutterbug for $15 per year. It is interesting to see such a price delta when you consider a print-magazine is more expensive to deliver. Offer ends Monday night as usual, with the usual terms (no auto-renewals, new subs or gift subs or renewals, adjust duration per magazine from 1 to 3 years, etc).
If you are a Prime member, one of your benefits is Prime Reading. For the month of November 2016, you can borrow a selection of single Magazine issues, including the November 2016 issue of Popular Photography and Imaging. Magazines count as one of your “ten out” selections but you can return them at any time to free up the slot. You don’t own these, they are digitally borrowed. As far as I can tell, these digital magazine issues can only be read on iOS and Android, not Windows.
The weekend sale is here at Discount Mags and this round, good until Monday night, includes two photography magazines, each offered for $5 per magazine per year, with the usual terms (up to three years, renewals or new subscribers or gifts; no auto-renewals; you have to manually renew IF you want to do so; printed magazines delivered by snail mail to physical addresses).
It’s the weekend and the Weekend Sale at DiscountMags is back offering lower than usual discount prices for printed magazines delivered to USA addresses as follows:
- Outdoor Photographer for $4.71 per year
- Digital Photo for $4.73 per year
- Popular Photography for $4.79 per year
- Digital Photo PRO for $7.83
The usual terms apply, up to three years, individually adjustable per magazine, good for gifts, renewals or new subscriptions. Their subscription are not auto-renewal; they won’t renew unless you manually do so.
The weekend is over, and so it this sale…
This offer expired but they seem to have similar type of things every few weeks/months…
This weekend sale expired…
This weekend’s magazine sale at Discount Mags has a slightly different set of featured magazines with a fall theme of sorts. None of the usual printed photo magazines are participating, but they offer a 1-year digital subscription (Zinio) of Shutterbug for $9 for new subscribers or renewals. Their weekend sales now feature a mix of print or digital or “print + digital”, so be sure to check the box of each magazine there. The sales are good until Monday night.
This weekend sale ended but another one will come next weekend…
A few days after adding free Audible content to Prime memberships, Amazon is back with a new feature for Prime members, Prime Reading. This feature has two components:
- you can read over 1000 e-books for FREE. You do not own the books, but you can read them for free and take as long as you like to finish them
- monthly selection of Magazine Issues you can borrow and read for FREE, the current selection includes the latest issues from Shutterbug and Consumer Reports, N-Geo Traveler, Pop Mechanics, among others
This is essentially a “Kindle Unlimited Lite” membership, it contains a subset of the ebooks available through that for-pay membership.
You can read as many of them as you like but there is a checkout limit of ten at a time. This of this as your local library, you can only have ten items out at any time, but you can return them and borrow new ones as many times as you like. The magazines count towards the ten item limit.
The magazine selections will change monthly, so there’s no guarantee the same magazine will be available next month. Magazines can only be read using the iOS and Android Kindle apps. You cannot read them with the Cloud Reader, nor the Windows Kindle app, nor using e-readers. eBooks can be read with all options including Cloud Reader and e-readers.
Of the 1000+ books, only one is photography-related (as far as my searches can tell), “How to Archive Family Photos: A Step-by-Step Guide to Organize and Share Your Photos Digitally” by Denise May Levenick.
As usual with the Netflix-style membership, you don’t get to keep any of them, but you can keep reading them as long as you are a paying member.
UPDATE: indeed this is single issues, which you can download to your Kindle app for later reading (eg if without internet connection). Here’s a screenshot of the app with Shutterbug, the October 2016 issue:
Co-Promotion: KINDLE E-BOOK READERS Get DISCOUNTED
To celebrate (okay, sale-a-brate) this new Prime benefit, Amazon is also discounting some of their Kindle e-book readers for Prime members (so they can read all these 1000+ e-books) as follows:
+ Kindle Voyage e-reader for $150
+ Kindle Paperwhite e-reader for $90
+ Entry-Level Kindle e-reader for $50
+ for all the Kindles, you see the discount after you add it to the shopping cart and proceed to the Checkout page
This weekend sale ended…
This weekend special ended, but they typically have new offers every weekend…
The weekend is here and so is a new Weekend Sale at Discount Mags. Their weekend sales now end on Monday night instead of Sunday night. The theme of this sale is multi-year discounts, the more years you sign-up, the bigger the discount. For example, 3-years of Pop Photo are $13, 2-years are $9, 1-year is $5. So you get the better price per year if you sign up for three years. Digital Photo and Outdoor Photographer have similar prices, while Digital Photo PRO is 3-years for $25. These are printed magazines delivered to your front door. You can sign-up as a new subscriber, or renew an existing subscription or buy it as a gift for someone else. These options are individually adjustable per magazine.
If you prefer digital magazines, the Zinio coupon promotion of 40% off with coupon FRESH40 expires Monday night as well. They have a lot more Photography Magazines including many international titles [see earlier post for more on this]
Digital magazine seller Zinio has a new coupon promotion, coupon code FRESH40 gets you 40% off almost all the magazines they carry. The sale is good until 9/19/16. Use the search bar to look for magazines of interest, the ones shown on the aforelinked page are just a subset of what’s eligible. This is a link the Photography Category.
These are digital magazines that you can read using the Zinio website (eg desktops/laptops) along with their iOS and Android and Windows Metro app. This type of a sale is great for international photography magazines whose shipping fees make them too expensive for a physical subscription. The mainstream US photo magazines (Pop, Outdoor, etc) are more expensive at Zinio (even with the coupon) than the weekend DicsountMags physical magazine sales.
To test the coupons, you need a Zinio account and a credit card on file. Here’s an example of 1-Year Amateur Photographer UK subscription (51 digital issues), the price drops from $88~ to $53~ after you enter the coupon (screenshot below):
If there are any magazines you want me to “coupon test”, please leave a comment or use the online contact form.

Their US-based magazine prices are not as competitive as DiscountMags above, but their international subscriptions beat the prices of physical subscriptions. These can be read in the Zinio apps or the Zinio website with a browser.

Their big publisher US-based magazines (Pop Photo, Outdoor, Digital Pho) prices are not competitive with the weekly printed offers from DiscountMags (eg this weekend’s sale), but they offer Australia’s “Photo Review” for $10.62 for 1-year (four issues), Professional Photography for $10 for 1-year (three issues), Digital Camera World for $10 for 1-year (three issues). You may recognize many of them from back when there were bookstores will fully stocked newsstands on almost every street corner 🙂

PS2: Zinio magazines can be read with a web browser on a computer or using their mobile apps (iTunes, Google Play, Windows).
