Zinio is doing a holiday sweepstakes and I was asked to spread the word. To give you a background on what Zinio is, it is a place that has every magazine subscription imaginable online. It has magazines from all over the world, many of them I haven’t even heard of. I discovered Zinio through Macleans which offers a digital version of the magazine with the paper version. They use Zinio to manage it so now I can catch up on the news at work…er..I mean on the go.
Today – Young and Thrifty is giving away 10 magazine subscriptions! First, Go to the sweepstakes to try to enter the following prizes:
Everything you love about iPad — the beautiful screen, fast and fluid performance, FaceTime and iSight cameras, thousands of amazing apps, 10-hour battery life — is everything you’ll love about iPad mini, too. And you can hold it in one hand. (Delivery time based on availability, which is currently 2 weeks)
To spread some holiday joy, everyone that enters will receive $5 in Zinio Bucks, which can be used to buy any of our 5500+ magazines. After submitting the sweepstakes, you will be brought to a page to sign up for your $5 voucher.
Either way, if you enter you get $5 to spend on a magazine. You can enter for the contest here. The $5 is only good for today, I just entered and bought a single magazine so you don’t have to get a magazine subscription to use the coupon. When you enter you’ll be asked to invite people, you can do this or skip it. Then you’ll see a screen to get your $5 coupon.
To be selected to get one of the free magazine subscriptions, all you have to do is sign up for Young and Thrifty updates. You can sign up for daily updates here or use the form in the sidebar to sign up for weekly updates. For anyone who signs up today we will be picking 10 names at random to pick from. You will be notified this weekend if you are selected.
[highlight]Please use your full name and your preferred email address when you sign up because that will be the one where we send the free subscription.[/highlight]
