By taking out a magazine subscription, the reader benefits from many advantages such as having their magazine arrive on their doorstep before it’s available in the shops.

With the advent of the Apple iPad, eBook readers and the promise of even more information in the palm of your hand, it may come as some surprise to see that good old fashioned printed media is fighting back, particularly in the realm of the weekly or monthly magazine subscription.
It appears that magazine subscriptions are attracting a growing following, with the number of subscriptions being taken out on the rise, according to magazine subscription comparison web site BuyMagazinesOnline.co.uk. They told us that, contrary to what you may think, there is still a strong demand for the traditional glossy amongst all demographics and spanning most interests.
“It’s great to see people still buying magazines online, especially as a subscription, where huge savings can be had over the standard cover price.”, said Howard of the comparison site. “By taking out a magazine subscription, the reader benefits from many advantages such as having their magazine arrive on their doorstep before it’s available in the shops, making a good saving over the normal magazine price, and they’re also often entitled to a free gift when ordering the subscription.”
It would imply that if you’re an avid reader of a particular publication, it pays to subscribe and it also seems to make sense to compare subscription costs. We found the subscription costs, and hence the cost per issue, varied considerably between the various companies that were selling the subscriptions, which would not have been apparent had we not been able to compare the prices side by side on a site such as BuyMagazinesOnline.co.uk.
“It always makes sense to compare subscription prices”, continued Howard, “as you would with any other product or service. There are also further savings to be made depending on the method of payment, for instance, direct debit or annual credit card.”
“There are often magazines with free gifts available when taking out a subscription and other subscription offers such as getting three issues for a pound.”
So it seems that technology in the form of eBook readers, tablet PCs and netbooks, is not quite mature or adept enough to take over the task of providing us with our regular magazine fix. Plus, we can’t quite see the tables in doctor’s and dentist’s waiting rooms across the land, covered in five year old Kindles!
