    I check out the .Mac page about as often as I go to the dentist. Therefore, I don't know how old the offer on the .Mac page is (hours? days? months?), but I haven't seen it posted here, so, for fellow .Mac members who also never visit the page:

    You can get MacAddict for US$20/year, including the CDs. More for Canada/non-US subscribers. For us in the states, that's ~US$1.67/month. Not bad. I tend to buy it whenever I see it, but keep forgetting to subscribe. Just did.

    Now, after saving $10 off the subscription, I just need to find $90 more worth of reasons to renew .Mac next year....

    Sorry if this is common knowledge.

    For those who don't read MacAddict, it's a great mag.

    Thank you for the information jsw. I subscribe to MacAddict and it's also time to renew. Going to look in to that discount.

    Intersting, I just opened my July issue and this popped out. I have no use for .Mac and $24 isn't that much different. :rolleyes:

    i don't know if i am going to renew my macaddict. not to sound cocky but i already know all the help or hints they throw out there. most pages are full of ads now. they even have their sample pc magizine which will be in production soon in there. they do some cool things, but i don't think it is worth the money anymore. i've bene getting more joy out of reading the long tech articles in wired (bought an issue on pixar in london coming home). I'm even enjoying my maxim magizine more, has better stories lately.

    Darn it. Now I have to find $96 of other stuff to justify renewing .Mac. ;)

    Humm, that discount is $5 more than amazon though it does have a CD, but I would save on garbage cost since they never put anything good on them.

    That's a good one. I like National Geographic. I just read it for the pictures though.

    Anybody actually used this site to get magazines?
    Seems a little fishy. I know my e-mail address is going to be spammed into submission... and I assume my mailing address as well. But I can take care of both of those issues. Anything else to worry about?

    Yup SA is great, and I've been a continuous subscriber to Discover since they were Science 86 :)

    They put a lot of demo software, some free (freeware) software, and sometimes they give you free software that would normally cost you cash. They also have a movie every month and a searchable archive of the "Discs."
