Your favourite magazines go digital

If you don’t like to go without your monthly magazine fix, but you hesitate to subscribe because you don’t always get all the issues, or they arrive late and in shoddy condition, this tip’s for you.

Certain magazines are now advertising the fact that they’ve gone digital, and you can read the current issue or subscribe for a year online.

Take Women’s Health. You can now get 12 digital issues for R210.17 — that’s a saving, considering you can subscribe to the print version for R264 for 11 issues (and that’s 25% off cover price).

A year’s subscription to House & Leisure will cost you R188 (that’s a 35% saving on the cover price of R288) while Getaway is going for a song at just R88 (a whopping 50% off the cover price of R175.13).

You can read your magazine on your iPad, Mac or PC. To see whether your favourite magazine is available for online subscription, visit http://za.zinio.com.

While we’re on the subject of digital subscriptions, don’t forget that the Mail & Guardian offers digital subscriptions, including the only Kindle edition in Africa. A single issue costs $2.99 (about R21 at current exchange rates) and a monthly subscription is $5.99 (about R42). Click here to make your purchase on Amazon.

Don’t forget that, if you’re a member of Discovery Vitality, you can subscribe to your favourite magazines at extremely good rates — 10 issues of Women’s Health will cost you just R105.01 and 12 issues of Shape will cost you R108. And that’s if you’re on Blue Status. The higher your status, the more magazines you can subscribe to at reduced rates.

Magazine subscriptions make great gifts as some people take those “nice to have” items out of their baskets at month-end, when times are tough. So consider a gift subscription for friends and family. Prices are pretty good.
