Everyone needs a hand to kick start their New Year’s resolutions. The Magazines Canada Buy 2 Get 1 FREE magazine subscription campaign can help, with over 200 great titles available (in both print and digital formats) to offer advice, current events and inspiration all year long.

Customers can order online, by mail or by phone. Buy two subscriptions and the third is totally free – a welcome savings post-holiday season. Canadian titles on offer include a broad range of national, regional-interest and niche publications covering a wide array of topics, including; family, fashion, business, arts & literature, recreation, lifestyle and more.

“This program is another example of how the industry continues to present Canadians with more ways to experience the great work of hundreds of publications,” said Deborah Morrison; Chair of the Magazines Canada Board. “Even though the industry is changing, we remain committed to giving Canadian readers the most for their money.”

Canadians who received an e-reader or tablet over the holidays will find the Buy 2, Get 1 FREE offer especially hard to resist. Digital subscriptions provide the same material as the print publication, plus exclusive features like video, audio and live links.

“E-readers are really providing an exciting and affordable new way to experience magazines, whether they’re your old favourites or new indie titles,” said Barbara Bates, Executive Director of Circulation Marketing at Magazines Canada. “This technology also makes sharing your favourites or new discoveries with techie friends amazingly easy.”

The Buy 2 Get 1 FREE campaign is a national, cooperative subscription-selling effort promoted by brochures sent via Canada Post and in participating magazine polybags. It is supported by print and online advertising, search engine marketing and social media promotions. The campaign works to particularly extend awareness of and promote sales for over 100 smaller-circulation, independent magazines, full of the work of Canadian creators (writers, editors, photographers, illustrators).
