One Way to Get Too Many Magazines

four magazine covers

I just got this message in my e-mail. I'm not identifying the organization that sent it, because you might get something similar from any Cause You Care About.
The Cause-You-Care-About has launched a new fundraising campaign for the fall and we have found a fabulous way to provide you with your favorite magazines at a huge discount and raise money for the Cause-You-Care-About at the same time!

All you have to do is visit our new online magazine store to buy, renew or extend your favorite magazine subscription and 40% of each purchase is contributed to the Cause-You-Care-About!

Over 650 magazine titles at up to 85% off newsstand prices; Buy online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

You can also help by inviting your friends and family to purchase their favorite magazines online. They will also save up to 85% on more than 650 titles while the Cause-You-Care-About keeps 40% of each purchase amount!

What a piece of marketing - it plays on your sympathies and on your sense of getting a good deal. But magazines you don't need - that will just pile up unread - are not a good deal at any price. Want to support the cause? Just send them a check!

Great advice Jeri! Just write a check to your favorite charity. Don't get stuck with a pile of magazines that you don't have time for!
