Free Magazines! And a Free Book! And Karma!

From time to time magazines offer free subscriptions in a blatant attempt to increase their readership.  Which is a blatant attempt to be able to charge more for advertising.  Which is blatantly fine, as long as it’s blatantly free to me. And you.

My nephew will be excited that he can get a free one-year subscription to Maxim.

If you have different interests perhaps you’d prefer  free subscriptions to Forbes, Dog’s Life , Interview and/or Woman’s Day.  And if you’re interested in all five then I think you’re a really interesting person.  If, however, they will sit untouched on your coffee table until you toss them into the recycling bin nine months later, please save some trees and don’t  bother.  Just sayin’.

And for those of you who haven’t  yet heard, Suze Orman’s latest book Suze Orman’s 2009 Action Plan is available for free at through today. Go to Oprah’s site to find out more.  Thanks Suze, for being smart enough to know that the goodwill you’re generating by offering this for free (and saving so many of our lovely trees at the same time) will pay off in the end.  Of course with the recession no one will have the money to buy your future books, but you’ll be rich in karma, baby.  Karma!

Deal of the Day July 1, 2008

This Deal of the Day comes to you from a great blog I read called My Money Blog, which I found out about via I’ve Paid For This Twice Already…‘s post Writing A Will, Online Style. Check both blogs out for great info!

On a recent episode of the Suze Orman TV show, she announced that you can go to her website and get her Online Will & Trust kit for free for a limited time. Via Slickdeals. Here’s how to get it:

  • Go to
  • Click on Will & Trust Kit link on upper left menu.
  • Click the orange Gift Code button.
  • Type in the code “people first”.

The software includes the ability to create a will, a revocable trust, Financial Power of Attorney, and an Advanced Directive / Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare. One less reason for putting off doing one of these if it’s free! )

I don’t think these are for people with large or complex estates, but check it out if you think it might work for you. And I’m going to recommend having an attorney look over the documents when you’re done. It will be less than them compiling them from start to finish, but you can make sure you’ve done it rightm abd that any unusual things in your situation are handled correctly.

Check back tomorrow for another great deal!
