Contest: Win a free Zinio digital magazine subscription!
Are you a travel magazine fanatic, but you hate lugging around piles of dead trees? Zinio may be the answer–and you could win one of 10 free Zinio digital magazine subscriptions right here at Facing the Street.
How does Zinio work? In a nutshell, once you subscribe (or win a subscription!), you’ll receive each complete issue as a digital file you can read on your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Some Zinio editions are interactive, with links, video and other perks not available in the print version.
Zinio is full of temptations for armchair travellers, including digital versions of Afar, National Geographic Traveler, Islands, Lonely Planet Traveller, Condé Nast Traveler/Traveller (U.S. and British editions), Travel + Leisure and Wanderlust. (To see everything available, go to Zinio, click on “Shop Magazines,” then “Shop by Category,” then “Travel.”)
The length of the subscription varies based on the publication you choose.
So, I hear you asking, how do I enter to win?
1. Answer the following question in a comment on this post: “Have you ever travelled somewhere because a magazine article inspired you–and, if so, where did you go?”
2. Include your first and last name, and the name of the travel magazine you’d like to win a subscription to. (Make sure it is one that Zinio offers!)
Post your comment by 11:59pm Eastern time on Monday, August 5, 2013. I’ll choose 10 lucky winners randomly based on all entries received.
P.S.: If you don’t win–or even if you do!–here’s some other news that may be of interest. With the Zinio Z-Pass, you can receive three digital mags for $5 a month. Try new ones every month, if you like. It sounds like a good way to “test drive” a new-to-you magazine before ponying up for a full subscription.
Disclosure: Zinio is providing the 10 subscriptions for winners free of charge.
