Amazon this weekend only: Great $5 magazine subscriptions

Amazon: Popular Science Magazine (1 year subscription) I'm always watching Amazon for good deals, and $5 magazine subscriptions are one of my favorites. Five to ten minutes with a good mag perks me up on days when I don't have a longer snatch of time to relax.

Today and tomorrow, Amazon's put a bunch of good ones on sale, including Popular Science, Science Illustrated, Parenting (both the Early Years and School Years versions), Working Mother, and several hobby-related titles.

On Amazon: $5 Magazines

Prices good until 3/6/11. Thank you to @kathyell for this on Twitter: "Several of the $5 mag subscriptions are auto-renew. I set a calendar reminder to see later if I want to cancel."

    I noticed for Popular Science, that it’s $5 for the 1-year Auto-renewal price. Other magazines like Popular Mechanics are $7/year with auto-renewal, without it they are both $12.

    Just so people are aware they will be renewed and charged every year, still a good deal :)

    Great deal! I purchased a few. Just remember that even though it says 1 year auto renewal, my experience has been that magazines tend to try to renew earlier so if you don’t like the magazine, mark your calendar about 2 months before it it set to auto renew and contact the company.
