5 Easy Ways to Get Free Baby Magazines

Getting free magazines is easy, if you know where to look. Check out these unique ways to get free magazine subscriptions … #5 is my favorite!

1. Free Baby Magazines at Doctor’s Offices

Your OB/Gyn and Pediatrician will have parenting magazines in their waiting room for you to pass the time. They might even have multiple copies to hand out to patients for free.

Many parenting magazines will have a card or leaflet inside with offers for free or cheap magazine subscriptions.

You can ask the receptionist if they have any back issues you can take home. Most of them throw out the old issues when the new ones come in. Who cares if you’re reading a magazine that’s a couple of months behind? It’s still FREE!

2. Check Your Local Libary

Your public library has the latest issues of popular baby and parenting magazines. You can read them there or check out older issues to take home.

If you want to keep the magazines, ask the librarian. Many times they have multiple copies and will be willing to let you have older issues for free.

3. Borrow or Swap with Friends

You could ask for a free gift subscription as a baby shower gift from friends or family.

If you have a friend who was a subscription, ask if you can have the magazine issue when she’s done reading it.

A fun way to score some free magazines is to host a Magazine Swap. Ask your friends to bring a stack of magazines (and maybe a snack too). Then you can trade magazines and enjoy some girl time with other Moms.

4. Free Magazine Websites

There are many online sites that offer free magazine subscriptions. Most of them require you to fill out a short survey to be eligible.

They usually ask for your email, mailing address and occasionally some basic demographic information.

Here are the top free magazine sites:

Free subscriptions have included Family Circle, People, Shape, Better Homes & Gardens, Woman’s Day, Us Weekly, Bridal Guide, Martha Stewart, Real Simple, Ladies Home Journal, and more.

Check these sites regularly because their free magazine offers change fairly often.

5. Use Rewards for Free Magazines

My favorite way to get free magazines is to rack up rewards points and redeem them for 1 year magazine subscriptions. I’ve received many free subscriptions this way.

All you have to do is fill out surveys, enter codes from specially marked packages, or use a special link when making an online purchase.

Even better, these rewards programs are FREE to join and even offer perks when you sign up!

Here are my favorite rewards programs that offer magazine subscriptions:

Cheap Magazines

With everything going digital these days, many magazines are now online. That means sales of printed magazines are declining.

The GOOD NEWS is that printed magazine subscriptions are MUCH cheaper than they used to be.

If you’re a magazine lover and drool over the glossy covers, beautiful photography, and helpful tips inside – you can still get your fix. And for cheap!

Here are some great deals I found for cheap magazine subscriptions:
