Did you know that you can receive free magazines by mail absolutely for free, with no strings attached? It’s one of my favorite types of freebies.
It’s also another way I’ve found to save me some money. I haven’t paid for any of my magazine subscriptions in years.
Continue reading to learn how I scored 6 FREE magazines saving me over $50 a year!
You can typically find a lot of one year subscriptions for free right online. My favorite find that I’ve been able to snag every year is for Shape magazine.
I once was even able to score a free year of a Barron’s newspaper subscription for my stepdad. Though, it seems like newspaper finds are rarer these days.
Current List of Free Magazine Subscriptions by Mail
Here’s a current list of free subscription magazines that I was able to find. Some places may offer more, or even change offers due to popularity.
They may ask you some questions and even offer you other items. Just keep in mind you do not need to buy anything, or provide your credit card.
Just look for a place to skip ahead on the page. These all take less than 3-5 minutes to complete or less, with some links directing to the exact offer page.
Also, keep in mind that you may only be able to take advantage of one offer per website. Some places may allow more.

Other Places To Find Free Magazine Offers
The links above are just some of the current freebies I was able to find. However, sometimes it’s just as good to go to the source of the free magazines to see what other offers they may have.
Here are some of my favorite places to check out:
Although not a place for free magazine offers, you can still earn your way to free magazine offers by signing up to RecycleBank. Basically, you can earn points by watching videos, redeeming mobile coupons, and more.
Then, you can redeem your earned points towards magazine offers. They have an offer right now where you can use 240 points towards a two year subscription good towards Good Housekeeping and Woman’s Day magazine.
To put that in perspective, you can watch 2-3 videos that are high in points and earn enough points to get those two subscriptions. Or, you can choose to redeem for other magazine offers as well.
How I Scored Three SIX Free Magazine Subscriptions
Today, I realized I have not been receiving my Shape or Women’s Health Magazine in a couple months. Using the above list, I was able to find a free subscription for Shape magazine.
Then, I signed up for a new account at RewardSurvey. They use a points based system that you can use towards magazine rewards.
They gave me $30 Rewards Points for completing a short survey during signup. With that, I was able to redeem a subscription to Women’s Health Magazine and StyleWatch.
So in all, I saved myself around $35 for three free magazine subscriptions. Sweet!
Depending on the company, it can take 8-12 weeks to start seeing the free magazine subscriptions by mail. But, they do eventually start coming in the mail.
Two days after signing up at RewardSurvey, I noticed an e-mail in my spam folder welcoming me to take another survey to earn a free $20 in Rewards Points. I figured, why not? More free magazines!
For some reason, it didn’t recognize my e-mail address at the website that I previously used. So, I wonder if they do not store that information on the website? Either way, after I took the short survey expecting to receive $20 in Rewards Points, they actually gave me $30 Rewards Points!
So, I was able to chose two more free magazines for a survey that took me less than 3-5 minutes to complete. I chose 12 issues of Allure magazine and 10 issues of W magazine which left me with $3 in Rewards Points. After filling out my mailing address, I noticed this little information at the bottom of the page:
I went ahead and took the survey, except they again offered me $30 in Rewards Points. Awesome! I can’t say that I’m complaining any. This time, I choose 15 issues of People magazine. It’s a more expensive offer at $20 Rewards Points, and is only being offered to new subscribers.
For less than 10 minutes of surveys, I am getting three more magazines. Without looking up the current prices, I’m going to say I saved well more than $50 dollars or more in magazine subscriptions.
