Yester­day we received an issue of Time Mag­a­zine. I can only assume it’s relat­ed to, although I don’t recall any offers for it. 

We’ve got­ten free sub­scrip­tions to Nation­al Geo­graph­ic there before, so I’m a fan. We’ve also ran­dom­ly received every­thing from Car & Dri­ver to Elle Decor to Biog­ra­phy, and I recall recent offers for Black Enter­pise, Elec­tron­ic Home, Mac Addict, and The Amer­i­can Prospect. This morn­ing I received an offer for The Amer­i­can Cow­boy. I’ve nev­er heard of some of these mag­a­zines before, but some of them do sound interesting.

I’ve decid­ed to sim­ply be zen about it, and regard what­ev­er comes in the mail as a gift. It does make check­ing the box more interesting!

I fig­ured I’d give the site a plug, though. You do fill out mar­ket­ing sur­veys for most of the sub­scrip­tions. The only ones that I find oner­ous are those for com­put­er indus­try pub­li­ca­tions, and I gen­er­al­ly just pass on those-I know per­fect­ly well that I won’t read them anyway.

I was cau­tious of any “some­thing for noth­ing” offers, so I used a spe­cial sneake­mail address the first time I signed up there and left them with just that for about six months. I nev­er got one piece of mail from any­one but them dur­ing that time, so now I’ve switched over to using one of my nor­mal email addresses.
