I'm mentioning the following service with the caveat that I've never tried it so can't really recommend it or discourage you from working. It intrigues me, though, and I am curious if anyone else has tried it.
Maghound is a magazine subscription service that allows you to get your favorite magazines for cheaper than the newsstand but without having to be as committed as you would with a subscription.
The way it works is you sign up to receive three, five, seven or more magazines a month for a monthly rate. Then you choose which magazines you'll take, but you can switch out magazines every single month if you'd like.
It sounds like it could be especially useful if you want to try out a new magazine for a few months without paying the newsstand price. Or, if you know a magazine will be having a particular cover story that you're interested in one month, you could always switch to that magazine for a month and then switch back to something else.
It appears they have 299 titles available. I did a cursory search based on my own current magazine subscriptions (see magazine pile on left sidebar), and they had all except Newsweek, which I'm probably about to drop anyway after learning that they're about to go all snotty on me. Screw you, Newsweek, I've been a loyal subscriber for years.
I guess the only thing that would keep me from trying this out is that I'd want to first let all my current subscriptions expire so as not to be paying twice, and that might take a while.
Anyway, what do you think? Does anyone use Maghound already?
