So I hate paper.
Or rather, I hate wasted paper.
So much of the paper that comes into this house goes straight into our recycle bin - without so much as even a glance.
I hate it.
I rarely buy magazines because I hate the wasted paper.
I don't even buy birthday cards.
(Does that make me a horrible person?)
When the good folks at Zinio contacted me a few weeks ago, I was surprised I had never heard of them, being the paper-hater that I am.
People, Zinio is paperless magazines.
And they've offered me 10 online subscriptions to give away!
Because I was unfamiliar with Zinio's services, I asked to keep one of the subscription offers for myself.
Zinio offers thousands of magazines to choose from in all different categories: Art, Photography, Cars, Lifestyle, Fashion, Sports.... honestly, it's kind of ridiculous just how many magazines there are to choose from - and it was freaking hard to choose just one.
I chose Martha Stewart as my free subscription (because I didn't want to be judged for choosing Us Weekly.)
I checked out my subscription on my Mac and my iPad. I wasn't a fan of reading it on my laptop, just didn't work for me. But I love the iPad app - especially the ability to read magazines offline once they are downloaded. (The Zinio app is free to download.)
Text and images are crisp and clear - even when you zoom in - and links to websites and such are clickable right in the article. Love that.
AND NO MORE PAPER CLUTTERING UP MY HOUSE!!
The other cool thing Zinio offers is the Z-Pass.
Z-Pass offers 3 new magazines every month for just $5. And you have the freedom to stick with the same three titles or switch it up every month. No year long subscription required!
I'm very happy with what I've seen so far and am stoked to offer you a chance to win one of nine free subscriptions to any online magazine Zinio offers.
