I'm surprised Im even seeing this ethical discussion after all the questionable deals posted on this site. How many used the GSA link at bn.com that was supposed to be for government employees, for example.

Considering most magazine publishers would sacrifice their first born in order to increase their circulation numbers this is about as big of a non-issue as you can get.

I think you're wrong on that.

If it was that simple, they'd be giving subscriptions away a lot more frequently and easily, without having to jump through these selection criteria hoops.

Yes, advertising revenue is more important than subscribtions, but it is targeted advertising with advertisers getting responses to those ads that keep magazines in business.

The publishers want these free subscriptions to go to certain demographics, and we should respect that.

Yeah, you're right. People who actually answer questions honestly and in good faith with the offers are so annoying. Nothing more obnoxious than a person with a shred of self-respect.

Pfff. Wrong, the magazines are clearly dying to give their magazines out to everyone. And their advertisers are excited about hitting all the wrong demographics. They should clearly be thanking all the people who lie.

And ... I want free stuff! Mine mine mine!

On the off chance that you're not being totally sarcastic, it is true that some publishers will seek out the zipcodes that they're targeting and send out any free subscriptions to those areas first.
...and someone here once posted that they always get their subs by selecting other, other, none or such generic answers.

That was probably me. That's what I do for every sub that I sign up for. It almost always works as long as I try shortly after the offer is posted.

Who else but Looney Tunes could put these moral issues in their proper perspective?

Thanks for the laugh and the classic movie memory.

Anybody else having trouble getting Maxim renewals? They seemed to have stopped giving me renewals beyond 2025. I don't know if I should sign up anymore. Maybe I'll and check my status online to see if any were added.

I thought someone had mentioned Maxim's new policy wouldn't allow add on subscriptions extending beyond 7 years or something like that. I could be wrong, but I remember reading it in one of these threads. I want to say it was around the time Stuff folded.

^There was a five-year subscription term limitation that went into effect around '07. At the time it was for Maxim, Blender and Stuff.

EDIT. Copy & paste from an old post:

Dear Chad,

We recently received a subscription order from Publications Unlimited extending your subscription to BLENDER for another 11 issues. Since your current subscription to BLENDER is active through the year 2089, we have rejected this order as it extends your subscription beyond the new five-year subscription term limitation that we have in place.

I hope I get it, but don't think I've ever gotten one of these first 500 offers.
