If you love receiving mail that isn’t bills, if you adore magazines but don’t love one magazine enough to shell out for the yearlong subscription, Maghound is a fantastic source for you. Whether you want to learn more about history, world news, fashion, sports, or all of the above, this service is an ideal way to improve your knowledge, augment your light reading, or test the glossy waters.
Like Netflix, when users sign up they choose from a tier system:
- Tier 1 is $4.95 a month for three magazine titles.
- Tier 2 is $7.95 for five.
- Tier 3 is $9.95 for seven.
- Tier 3+ allows you to add additional magazine selections for $1 each.
Changing your magazine selections is as easy as logging into the website and removing the old subscriptions and picking out new ones.
One unfortunate shortcoming of the brand new service is that the bulk of its several hundred titles are magazines from the stable of its parent company Time Inc. However, there are still an incredible number of magazines from which to choose, and as time goes on and the company succeeds, this may change.
