Free magazines and magazine subscriptions are one of my favorite types of freebies, because it's like getting a little present in the mail month after month. I can proudly say that I haven't paid for a magazine subscription in more than ten years. I get more than a dozen free subscriptions every month.

Some of the free magazines I'm getting right now are O Magazine, Family Circle, Better Homes & Gardens, Ladies' Home Journal, Woman's Day, Saveur, Everyday with Rachael Ray, Rolling Stone, Cosmo, US Weekly, Working Mother, Marie Claire, and Harper's Bazaar.

Below you'll find a list of free magazines you can request right now, other ways to get free magazine subscriptions, and some tips on requesting them.

What You Need to Know About Requesting Free Magazines

All the free magazines and subscriptions I've listed below are indeed free. There are no strings attached, and you'll never receive a bill. They will not automatically renew.

When you sign-up for these free magazines, you'll have to jump through some hoops. These companies make money getting people to sign up for the offers you see during the sign-up process. You do NOT need to sign up for these offers to get the free magazines.

When you come to a place where they want you to select special offers or choose other publications, you'll need to look for a place where you can click "Skip," "No Thanks," "No," or something similar.

This option will always be available, it may just be small and at the very bottom of the form.

It does take a few minutes to say no to all these offers, so keep going through the pages until you get confirmation of your free magazine subscriptions.

Never, ever give your credit card number when you signing up for a free magazine subscription. If you do, I guarantee it will no longer be free.

Other Places to Check for Free Magazines

Every freebie I find is first posted on my main free sample page. Check there for new free magazines as they first become available as well as a ton of other free samples you can get in the mail.

You can also go directly to the companies that give out free magazines to check and see if they have anything new or something very specific to your likes. Here are the most popular ones:

If you're only interested in reading the magazines, and not keeping them, here are some other ideas on how you can get them for free:

  • Check them out from the library
  • Borrow them from a friend
  • Check their website for a digital version

Good luck on getting all the free magazines you want and remember, if you don't see your favorite magazine now, it will come up for free eventually.
