Recession Mama Michele Ashamalla: A lot of kids enjoy receiving books as a present, and pretty much all kids like magazines. Getting something in the mail is still exciting for them, and magazines can be educational, too.

Ranger Rick Magazine
Magazine subscriptions can be a fantastic bargain. Many subscriptions are available on eBay for unbelievably low prices. Magazine subscription sites often have online coupons, and their corresponding cashback can be as high as 30 percent. A couple of the sites that compare magazine subscription rates are and

I priced a magazine I liked as a kid: Ranger Rick, which is put out by the National Wildlife Federation. I found a deal for $20 for two years at I didn't find any coupons, but offers 15 percent back on that site, which brings the price down to $17. The National Wildlife Federation's website sells the subscription for $19.95 for just one year! The two-year subscription above saves about $23 off the official subscription price. 

A favorite for older kids might be Popular Science or (for kids with learning permits) Car and Driver. I've seen Popular Science subscriptions occasionally come up for as little as a few dollars a year. Search "magazines" on to check out some interesting recent offers. 

Give the gift of reading ... every month!

Persons out of every area of life are using the credit card and people who not using the credit card have arranged to apply for even one. Thanks for revealing your ideas on credit cards.
