Found SKI Magazine for free...does anyone subscribe to this?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
 Hi all...I'm new, so be kind.  =-)


I just found a free year subscription to SKI magazine and I was curious if it's worth having it sent...I know it's free, but still.

Here's the link if anyone else is interested.

They send Ski magazine to ski instructors for free. I wrote them a nasty note and asked them to stop sending it. Ski magazine is owned by Bonnier, the corporation that is suing Warren Miller to stop him from appearing in ski movies, as they own the rights to his name. On top of that, Ski magazine is the very worst of the magazines, being devoted to selling SUV's, luxury condos and overpriced crap. The free magazine is even overpriced, as it is worth less than nothing.

I get Ski magazine for free, read it and enjoy it.

Thanks.  My free subscription courtesy of NASTAR ended about a month ago.  My son likes to look at it too.  I've filled out the form hoping for another year of free cheese.

They have a free12 issues of American Cheerleader too!!  I was going to get it but it was too much typing and I figured it wouldn't be as cool as what I would fantasize it being like.

I got a free subscription out of nowhere a few years ago. Totally worth reading if you could care less about whatever corporate political bs others are talking about.

It's a free magazine filled with ski stories, gear reviews and pretty pictures of big mountains--how can you go wrong?

I get a free subscription for "Skiing" compliments of NSP membership. I glance thru it before tossing it - alot of ads and articles. Is it really free? NSP dues ain't free, and I pay those. Kind of like political accounting I think. You pay and we take your money LOL. But then who said skiing was cheap?

I picked up a copy of some really overpriced  skiing mag that sold nothing but condos, SUVs,  and gaper clothing at Barnes and Noble the other day-let's say it made Ski mag look like a Walmart equivalent....

Update, March/April issue arrived today. I stand corrected.

I subscribed using the link provided and today I received my first piece of JUNK MAIL.

Probably lots more to follow.

 

If I subscribe to something I put a code in my name, i.e.  'Bill SKIMAG' to let me know who has sold my address.

Sure enough, they did.

 

Of course, now I see that Skiman81 was a first time poster. I should have known. It'll take me months to get off this list.

 

fck!

That was the first clue.  Second was the name and signature; Skiman81 and Julie.  Most Julies aren't men.

They, like the newspapers, make money from the advertisers and the cost is based on the papers or mags delivered.  They make nothing from the paid subscriptions.

 

The Trenton Times was on the ropes so they were tossing papers in my driveway .. unwanted ...constantly, and a few times they jammed my snow blower.  I called and was begging them to stop and to no avail .. all done early in the a.m. so I never saw the person to holler.

The last time .. I called the paper and told them I was going to sue them ... the editor, publisher and personally, the new owner, Linda Bryce Cunningham.  IMHO, she was a rich brat and daddy bought her her very own paper as a graduation present (kinda' true cause she was very, very young) ... so they stopped.  It took me hours and the chain drive came off and ruined a guide.

 

Glad they stopped.  We used to get Ski free .. my wife's business .. but it only lasted two years.

I get Ski magazine free as well, and I always love reading it.
