Maybe you did a double-take when you read that title.
Because we are the no-freebie bloggers. We don't do sponsorship link-ups, or write reviews of amazing kitchen gadgets that we've been gifted, or tout hotels and rental apartments in exchange for a free night or two or talk up a restaurant that's given us a free meal. (We do accept advertising but potential advertisers seem more interested in giving us something in exchange for a write-up on the blog than in buying advertising outright. Make of that what you will.)
But, but .... 'tis the season of giving. We owe alot to you, our readers, and we know that. This offer comes with no strings attached, for you or for us. So, why not?
Zinio, web home to thousands of great magazines from around the world (including Travel+Leisure Southeast Asia, where Dave and I are both on the masthead and Saveur and SBS Feast, which we've been contributing to lately) is giving away 10 magazine subscriptions. You can browse and purchase subscriptions or single issues instantly from your computer or mobile device.
What you need to do to win a subscription: browse Zinio and select a magazine, then let us know your chosen magazine's title in the comments. You'll need to give us your full (and real) given and surnames, as well as your real email, to claim your prize.
(If you don't want to use your real name when you comment let us know and we'll contact you by email for it. And rest assured -- we will not use your email for any purpose other than this promotion, nor will we share it with others.)
The first ten readers to respond get the subscriptions. I need to submit the list of winners to Zinio by December 24, so hop to it and, again -- but be sure to use your real email in the comments!
From Dave and I, Happy Holidays! And thanks to the folks at Zinio for making this giveaway possible.
PS -- I moderate comments to keep out spam. I'll try to make them public as they come in so you know when the subscriptions have been given out.
UPDATE: The subscriptions have been spoken for! Thanks to all who participated and to everyone, thanks for reading this year. As a consolation prize, Zinio is offering 50% off through December.
