How to save $12.99 a year…

February 29, 2012 2 Comments

At Wifeable, we like to give back to our readers. We really appreciate you’re emails and thank you for sharing our articles and links.

As a token of our appreciation we’re going to share with you an easy way you can save $12.99 to $60.00 or more this year… starting TODAY!

How you ask?

By cancelling your magazine subscriptions to Cosmo, Vogue, Lucky, and the like.

“But wait,” you say… “I’m going to miss out on so much.”

Well, don’t you fret. In the next 400 words, Wifeable will fill you in on everything coming your way in the next twelve issues and make it easy for you to pocket that subscription money instead. You see, these magazines follow a formula. Go ahead and scan the covers the next time you’re in the grocery store check-out line.

You will find that every issue contains the following:

1. The Celebrity Cover Piece

Ok, every issue has to have a celebrity photo on the cover to get your attention. You can bank on that. And, usually this photo is paired with a half ass story about the celebrity’s new diet, or their secrets for happiness, or their fashion tips. The story feels like it was stretched from a five minute interview, and chances are… it was. What you need to understand is… These articles are really just three pictures (perhaps even old pictures re-used) and a handful of asinine quotes like “sometimes I match colors like orange with red, whatever feels right” that are blown up in bold and treated like some kind of gospel. So basically, it’s heavily airbrushed pictures of a celebrity (more on that later) and some random babble. You can get that on the internet for free.

Savings!

Ok what’s next….hmm “459 New looks for Fall?” … oh of course…

2. The Arbitrary Number List

There’s always an article with some huge random number attached to it. It doesn’t matter what the article is about, and chances are it’s something worthless. If the celebrity cover piece doesn’t get your attention, the random number list totally will. I mean who can resist “361 Lipgloss Tips”, “78 Ways To Get Happy Now”, or “16 Sex Moves You Have To Try Tonight”

Have any of these articles really offered you anything? Ever?

3. The Survery/Quiz

You can count on there being a survey or quiz inside each issue because everyone needs to know if they are a good lover, and naturally, the only true way to gauge this is through a multiple choice exam. If you answered D, then that means you just voluntarily took a stupid test. You lose.

4. Secrets, Secrets, Secrets!

Another mainstay of your favorite magazines… Unfortunately, labeling ordinary information as “Secrets” or “New” doesn’t change the fact that it’s really just ordinary information presented as something much more exciting than it really is.

Oh and… speaking of advertising…


5. You “Read” It For The Fashion Ads?

Most of the remaining pages, AT LEAST 50% of your magazine, will be fashion/designer advertisements. The sad part is, sometimes these are the most valuable and educational pages in each issue.

6. Those Back Pages Always Have The Classified Type Ads.

It seems the final pages of magazines never change. Somebody’s always selling you love potions, hair tonics, worthless trinkets, love making videos, and liberator pillows. If you really wanted any of this stuff (and why wouldn’t you?), a Google search would probably suffice.

So there you have it. A few bucks an issue doesn’t seem like much… until you realize what you’re actually buying. You don’t need any of that content, and if you really want it, there are ways to get it for free (try the internet or visit your dentist’s office waiting room). Don’t be victimized by newsstand-nonsense…Keep that magazine money in your wallet.

Well, here’s a tip…
