Today only, Ebates is offering 51% off for Magazines.com.  They run this every few months, and every time they do it makes for awesome deals on tons of magazine titles.  Even though it won’t arrive in time for Father’s day you could always get one of these and make Dad a fun little card to say what’s coming soon!

Here are a few ideas:

Field & Stream – $2.45 a year
Bassmaster – $4.90 a year
Cooks Illustrated – $13.20 a year (this is my all time favorite magazine!)
Cooking Light –  $11.76 for two years!
Entertainment Weekly – $7.35 for 52 issues!
Southern Living – $9.77 a year
Consumer Reports – $14.21 a year

If you are new to Ebates you’ll also get a $5 bonus for signing up. Remember with cashback deals you will pay the full price at checkout and then see your cash back in your Ebates account within 2-4 days.

Heads up in the past you could use this to get All You, it appears that today that title is not available on their site.  Remember you can get it for 83¢ an issue everyday (plus help out food banks!).

      I’ve done these e-bates 51% back deals in the past and it’s truly a great deal!!  To those asking questions – yes, you pay whatever the price is at magazines.com. 

      1. go to e-bates and sign up or sign in. 
      2. find magazines.com on ebates and click the link so they’ll track your purchase in order to get your 51% back
      3. shop on magazines.com – you pay the normal price up front
      4. after, go back to e-bates and you’ll see the info in your “tracking tickets” and I think the pending cash back (but I don’t remember how long it takes to show up.

      I got Martha Stewart Living last time for $20 so I have $10.20 pending now.  Off to see if there’s anything else that I need! 

      Thanks, Jenny!  :)

      If you’ve ordered from magazines.com before, check your email first!  They sent me a $5 gift card this morning as a Father’s Day promo.  So I ended up getting both Field & Stream and Bassmaster for $5 after cash back!!! 

    • Littleleagues3

      Thanks so much for this!  I just got Field and Stream (can print a certificate for father's day gift) and the book What's New Cupcake – after cash back for 7.50!

      Thanks!

      how does this work…just want to make sure.  Do you pay the regular price and then the difference will show up on your statement?

      • Abellx4

        You pay the price listed.  The 51% rebate will be placed in your ebates account.

    • Pakata5

      I wanted to buy the Cooks Illustrated magazine, but it is listed for sale at 6 issues for $26.95, a savings of 25%. Rats.  Did I not respond quick enought?
      My all time favorite magazine as well!

      • That is the correct price.  Remember your 51% cash back comes after you purchase it into your Ebates account.

      When I go to magazines.com (via Ebates) I also see an offer for a $5.00 coupon at checkout off select titles. It also says:

      “Enter coupon code DADSDAY during checkout to get your $5 discount. Coupon applies only to magazine offers shown below.

      Please note:
      Magazine selection and offers will change often, so take advantage of the offer soon.
      You must enter a valid coupon code at check-out (and click “Apply”) in order to receive the discount.
      Coupons may not be used in association with any other offers” That last sentence seems to indicate this wouldn’t work with the ebates 51% cash back? If we could use BOTH the $5 code AND get 51% back, that’d be super-fantastic. Anyone have any idea or has tried this in the past? Thanks!

    • I was going to get my MIL a gift subscription to All You, but I can't find it. I know they used to have it b/c it still appears under my magazines under my account details. Anyone else have any luck finding it?

    • Denise

      Is it 51% on all magazines or is there a list of certain magazines?

    • Gatortate

      Awesome!  My husband will love Field & Stream… and I will love Cooking Light Fresh Food Superfast!  :-D  Also, enter code: DADSDAY at checkout… only some (200) magazines qualify for this discount but it'll get you $5 off if it's one of them!

    • Mamaberry

      I found All You and added it to my cart, and it says “we're sorry, that item is currently not available”… they know we'd get 50% back :) (plus I have a $5 'certificate' from them so it would cost me $5 for a year.  Not happening in their book!  Not fair to me!

      • MK

        The extra $5 coupon they e-mailed you only works on certain ones.Try w/ a different title. It worked for me. They e-mailed me the code DADSDAY. Hope it works out for ya! : )

    • Gamblesonsfarms

      Why did I order yesterday!!! :(:(

    • Jessmender

      Jenny – Do you have “The Best Recipe” cookbook?  It is my favorite cookbook and is published by Cooks Illustrated.  I highly recommend!

    • MK

      You can still get $5 off other magazines not on the list that pops up. Those are with an instant $5 coupon but if there is one you want not on that list use code DADSDAY and you can still get the $5 off.
      I got 1yr of Smithsonian $19 on sale -$5 and will get $7 back with ebates so only $7 OOP for a mag that is usually $25. YAY!!!

    • kelley d

      If it is a magazine you are already getting, and this is a better deal.. can you just buy a year and they will add it on to the end of the the current subscription you are in???

    • kj

      just a warning, I did this last time and never recieved the cash back! I contacted ebates and was told “another company recieved credit for your purchase” not sure what that meant, Of numerous purchases through Ebates this is my only one to never recieve credit on

    • Erkelly

      Yay! My hubby has been dying to get Astronomy magazine and with this it'll be $18.60 for a year! That's the cheapest I've ever seen it! (full price it's $71.60 a year)

    • just m
