I have another code, this time for $5. Please PM me. Last time it worked for the person who (first) PM'd me, so this one must be generic as well. Expires 9/30/2013 at 12 pm PST.

for those who get zinio codes, have you ever paid money for subscriptions or issues? or are you like me, you've never paid a cent for the issues and subs you have.

I've paid a lot for mags.

Most of the time I try to keep it free or at least as low as possible. Have been using coupons to fill up on back issues too.

But sometimes I do use coupons as they're intended to: to get a discount on a subscription.
When a subscription is like 16 dollars, I don't mind paying 6 dollar after deducting a 10 dollar coupon.

Sometimes you have to show support to a platform. If no one's paying, Zinio wouldn't be succesful. And really... a few bucks won't hurt you that much. A lot of subscriptions are like 11 dollar. After deducting 10 dollars, it's only 1 dollar for 12 magazines.

Agreed. I've been sent about $250 in coupons, plus got another couple of $25 GCs for referrals, in addition to the various $25 deals that they've had. I've also spent a fair amount as well. I love using the GCs to get mags that I probably wouldn't have gotten otherwise, like All About History & some cooking mags (AllRecipes just launched a magazine, which is a site that I often use for recipes). It's a great way to get more people the site/app, and given how cheap you can get some of the printed subs (as can be seen in the other mag thread), it often is fairly close in price once you factor GCs in.

It should be there... Don't view by subscriptions...

Try this method, as it didn't show up in my account either...

When you log into your account, change the magazine viewing to "list view" (the icon with the horizontal lines)

Then change the "view all titles" to PC World, and they should appear.

After I switched back to "grid view" they were still there, so maybe all I had to do was change view all, to PC World.

I supposedly have a subscription to PC World already, because they cancelled the print edition, yet it doesn't show up in my account unless I view them as posted above!

Thx IDStorms but it still didn't show up. My zinio account has always been a little screwy - I had to call them in the past to fix subs that weren't appearing, such as Hollywood Reporter.

Got one $5 coupon a few days ago, and got another 3 $5 off ones last night. Would love to get a $10 one.

I got 3 x $5 as well...

By the way, can you stack or use all the credits in one purchase? or do i have to use $5 off each purchase?

i.e. If I want to buy a $12 magazine, can I use more than one $5 credit?

Sadly for these promotional codes, you can only use one per transaction. If you don't use it up, you can use the remaining balance for another transaction, but you cannot apply two promotional codes for one transaction.

anyone know some 1 dollar back issues you can buy at zinio? It'd be a waste not to use all the remaining amount..
I've already bought all the pre-09 popular science back issues for 1 dollar each.

Mississauga library apparently has it too; I just checked out a few magazines.

Since these mags are not for Zinio, I posted them in the main freebies forum...

Free "Game Developer Magazine" - EVERY ISSUE 1994-2013 (PDF format)

Game Developer, an in-depth monthly magazine for exposing 'the art and business of video games',
was published by UBM Tech (which also runs Game Developers Conference and Gamasutra.com) from 1994 to 2013.

Following the magazine's closure in July 2013, we've compiled an archive and made them freely available here for all to enjoy.
(Also check out the Game Developer section on Gamasutra for some of the best reprinted articles from these issues.)
