30 Presents under $30 #18

#18 Magazine Subscriptions {$8}

I did that monster post about buying magazine subscriptions on Ebay last year. This makes an excellent present. If you are going to buy them off ebay you should do it now. That way the subscription will arrive by January. When I give magazine subscriptions as a gift I buy the current copy at the supermarket and wrap that up with a note. Then they have something tangible to open.

    This is, perhaps, the jolly-est news of the season. I had no idea you could buy subscriptions on ebay. I am so excited to do a little Christmas shopping!

    I love love love magazines too. There is always a stack of them by my bed because I’m always picking them up in the stores when I see them.

    Right now Amazon is having a magazine subscription sale where the subscriptions are $5 off which puts me at paying about $7 for the mags that I really like. But they don’t have some others I want. Do you have a certain seller that you buy your magazines from on eBay?

    I bought my husband a magazine subscription off e-bay last year. The magazines never came, and the seller dissapeared. :Z

    That’s what happened to me. I bought four subscriptions but never saw one issue of any of them and the seller was no around anymore. So I am hoping I can get a recommendation for a reputable magazine seller.

    I’d also love to know who you order from. I ordered Domino from Ebay and never received it. By that time it was too late to leave feedback or receive any help from Ebay. Bummer.

    I haven’t ever had a problem besides a few taking 12 weeks to arrive. I don’t have a specific seller I use. But I look up a magazine I want and I make sure they have a huge amount of feedback and I make sure that it is all positive.

    Great tip. I have been told I have a magazine “problem”….so its good to see others also enjoy the same magazines I subscribe too. I would be interested to hear more about your inspiration binders that were posted about in the blog from last year. Thanks!!

    I don’t understand how you can buy a subscription on Ebay. Can someone explain to me? It sounds cool.
