Recently, I received an invitation to try out Maghound. For those of you who don’t know (like me last week), Maghound is a new magazine membership service for dads, moms, and other life forms. With Maghound, you can manage your subscriptions online, change your magazine selection as often as you like (you could get different magazines each month), and you can have each magazine delivered to a different name in your house (like your spouse, kids, pets, and imaginary friends).
Currently, there are over 300 magazines to choose from (such as American Baby, Family Fun, Parents, Sports Illustrated, Time). Now you too can try out Maghound magazine subscriptions service for free. Read on to find out how (and about an upcoming giveaway trip to New York).
Dads and moms can try out Maghound magazine membership service for free for one month. In addition, parents can receive a 20% discount off the first six months. All you have to do is sign up for an account. The sign-up process takes less than five minutes. They’ll ask you for basic info like name, address, email address, etc. Note: they’ll ask you for billing information too, but they won’t charge you for the first month. And if you’re not happy with the service, you can cancel at anytime (you can even cancel during the free trial period to avoid charges). BTW, in order to get the 20% discount, you have to sign up by November 30, 2009.
By now you are probably wondering how much does the Maghound magazines subscription service cost. Obviously, that will depend on how many magazines you subscribe to: 3 magazine titles for $4.95 per month, 5 magazine titles for $7.95, or 7 magazine titles for $9.95. Each additional magazine above 7 is only $1.00 extra per month. There is a small additional charge for premium magazines (about 10% of the titles listed on Maghound).
Here’s another cool Maghound feature: if one of your magazine selections is not published in a given month (like magazines that are published bimonthly), you have the option to select a substitute magazine to receive in it’s place for that specific month. What a great way to try out a magazine you normally wouldn’t consider subscribing to. Cool, right?
I don’t have the details yet, but in the near future I will be giving away two memberships to Maghound. In addition, one winner will receive a trip to NYC. More details coming soon.
[Disclosure: I received a one-year Maghound membership to tryout the service. However, I am not required to write good things about them. In addition, I had to provide billing information for my free trial. If I don’t cancel my membership after my free trial, I am on the hook like everyone else that signs up.]
