How to get free US magazine subscriptions - in Canada!
As Ive seen from many posts here, most are aware of the free subscriptions to many popular magazines you can get if you live in the States. Checking sites like fatwallet.com is one of the places I keep my eyes open for these free subscriptions. **Please note Im telling you the method of how to take advantage of these offers you may find if you live in Canada.
All I do is sign up with an American address. I use a hotel I stayed at in Dallas a few years ago. I use my real name with their address. Better to use an address of a real company or location, as if the address doesnt exist the order may not go through.
Depending on the magazine, you sign in to the site 4-8 weeks later and change your sign-up address to your Canadian one. I have recieved, for free, Maxim, FHM, Stuff, Mens Health, Sporting News and some outdoor magazine (I think its called outdoor life) for a couple of years now delivered right to my door in Ontario.
You have to keep your eyes open for the free offers, but dont be discouraged if they say USA only. Here is a site with most magazine's "change of address page": http://www.sjev.net/magazineaddress.html **Note - this is not a page with free subscription offers, but is a site you can use to change your address when you sign up elsewhere for a free subscription. In my experience it takes 6-10 weeks before you can sign in and change your address.
Make sure you record the exact name and address you sign up with, as you will need this info to change the address. This hasnt worked for me with all magazines, but I can vouch that it works for the 6 I mentioned above.
Hope this helps some out.
One more tip - I use an email address I created just for this purpose. It gets a lot of spam, so dont sign up for these offers with your regular address.
