Weekend Magazine Sale: $5 per year Pop or Outdoor

Another weekend is here which means a new weekend sale at Discount Mags.

The aforementioned are printed glossy magazines. Also participating is a 1-year Zinio digital subscription of Shutterbug for $15 per year.

Prime Members: read Nov issue of Pop Photo for FREE

As far as I can tell, these digital magazine issues can only be read on iOS and Android, not Windows.

New Prime Benefit: borrow latest Shutterbug, Consumer Reports Magazine Issues and more, plus borrow 1000+ ebooks for FREE

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:


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

Weekend Magazine Sale: Multi-Year Discounts, 3-YRS Pop Photo or Outdoor Pho for $13 per Magazine

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]

40% off Digital Magazines with coupon (many photography options)

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.

$5 per printed magazine per year: Pop Photo, Outdoor Photographer

The weekend magazine sale at DiscountMags.com is a $5 per magazine per year sale on select titles, including Popular Photography and Outdoor Photographer. These are the only photography magazines participating this time around. These are printed magazines delivered to your doorstep for USA addresses. The usual terms apply, no autorenewals, up to three years per magazine, good for new-subscribers or renewals or gifts for other people. This sale ends Monday night.

The Digital Photo PRO is $8.54 per year. The usual terms apply, up to three years per magazine, renewals or new subscriptions or gifts. No auto-renewals. These are printed magazines delivered by mail to USA addresses.

Speaking of magazines, if you are a fan of international photography magazines but don’t want to pay high prices for them (cross-border shipping costs more and takes longer) and if you like to read magazines digitally, digital magazine service Zinio has a sale on select Art and Photography magazines. 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.

Digital Subscriptions of International Photo magazines for around $10 per year

If you like to read digital editions of international magazines (which are typically a lot more expansive as a printed subscription), digital magazine seller Zinio has an Art & Photography Magazine Sale for around $10 per magazine per year.

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 🙂

PS: there are magazines with very similar names that are published in different countries, so do pay attention to the detailed listings.

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

1-Year Digital Photo for $5 (Digital Subscription)

The DiscountMags Weekend Sale post got me looking for magazines, and sure enough, for a limited time, you can get 1-Year Digital Photo digital subscription through the Zinio service and apps for $5 for 1-year. This is part of their Limited Time Sale (no expiration date is mentioned). Zinio subscriptions can be read in a Web Browser along with their apps for iOS, Google Play, Windows Metro (Kindle Fire can sideload the Android apk).

DiscountMags adds Digital-Only Subscriptions: Shutterbug for $9/yr, Smart Photography for $6.68/yr; also some Printed Mags get Digital Content

The weekend is upon us and with it we have another Weekend Magazine Sale at DiscountMags, now with a new addition. In addition to printed magazines, they are also offering digital subscriptions (redeemed through the Zinio service/app). Digital subscriptions mention this in the listings (Digital) and have a “Powered by Zinio” with a “?” explainer. Here’s a screenshot of a digital one:


Of camera and photo interest:

+ Shutterbug for $9/year, 1 year only, DIGITAL
+ Smart Photography for $6.68/year, 1 year only, DIGITAL

Some Printed Magazines now include Digital content
Another new feature at DiscountMags is that a subset of the Printed magazines now include Digital content to go with it. The eligible magazines mention this with the “Digital Download Included” in their section. You can use your browser’s in-page search feature to search for that phrase. Pop Photo is not eligible for this, but other non-photography magazines are, here’s a screenshot for Wired:


Digital content varies by magazine. For example, Wired offers this using their own Wired app (iPad, Nook, Kindle Fire [not sure why they don’t have a Google Play option]). ESPN offers ESPN Insider access, and such. Check each magazine of interest to see what and how they offer this.

PS: I haven’t tried any of the digital options yet, so I don’t know how they work. If you have any existing subscription, it may also be eligible if the offer is available through the publisher’s website. Simply follow the instructions as given by the magazine’s website.
