Use your airline miles to get free magazine subscriptions
If you’re like me, you have a few airline miles in a lot of frequent flyer programs — most of the time, not enough to get a free flight or even an upgrade. Some FF programs — Delta definitely and maybe some others — allow you to redeem these miles for magazine subscriptions. For the sake of variety, I pick magazines my publicity department doesn’t get. Unless I fall in love with a magazine, I usually won’t renew my subscription after a year, but that still gives me plenty of time to familiarize myself with the publication (and at least I don’t lose my miles).
