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).

    • Where can I get the airline miles for free magazine subscriptions. I found one site but was very limited as to the choices. I clicket on the pingback link that is with YEN’s comment. but it would not take me anywhere.

      • Once you’ve signed up for an airline’s frequent flyer program, they’ll send you information about various ways to redeem your miles. (I’ve never actually looked this up online — I’ve only ever responded to snail mail they’ve sent me with these types of offers.)

  2. I envy anyone who has the time to read magazines! Give me more free trips and I might be able to read a mag during flight.

  3. Heads up – the Wine Spectator stopped accepting miles for a subscription: http://kosherwinemusings.com/2009/03/08/wine-spectator-stops-miles-redemption. The deal was great while it lasted – major bummer.
