Sunset Magazine 1 yr $5

I have always only recommend All You Magazine, but more and more I started typing in “Sunset Magazine” on the deal lists.  So I decided to subscribe and see what it was.  It does have coupons each month, not nearly as many as All You, but still good coupons.  Most of them tend to be for Kraft products each month.  This past month there were about $10 worth of coupons.

Long story short, 1 year of Sunset Magazine (12 issues) is $5 on Amazon through tomorrow (10/24).  If every month had $10 in coupons you would save $120 in coupons for the year for $5 up front.  That might justify it for some of you.

Here are the coupons from my October issue if you are wondering:

$3/2 California Pizza Kitchen Frozen Pizzas, Any 11 oz. or larger
$1 off Jell-O Pudding or Gelatin Snacks, Any 6 pack,
$1 off Kraft Salad Dressing, Any 8 oz. or larger,
$1/2 Nabisco Crackers, Any 6 oz. or larger,
$1/2 Oscar Mayer Deli Shaved Meats (Deli Fresh)
$1 off Philadelphia Cream Cheese, Any 8+ Oz.
$1/2 Planters Cocktail Peanuts (12 oz or larger)
$1 off Velveeta Shells & Cheese Dinner, 12 oz

(if anything I have noticed that they tend to be high dollar, so there might not be many but they are good…)

(thanks MW for commenting with the deal!)

      Thanks for the info! I got it for free with a $5 Amazon GC from Swagbucks. If I don’t like it, I didn’t spend anything OOP! :-) Just the California Pizza Kitchen coupons are enough for me! We love those. Kraft coupons are always good!

        It did tell me my issue won’t arrive til mid Dec-Jan though. We’ll see.

        • Jenny

          For most magazines it takes 6-8 weeks so I would look for it in December probably.

    • Emily

      What is the magazine itself about?

      • Freedom

        Looks like vacation spots, travel, etc. Great magazine to donate to schools when done!

    • Anna

      Just subscribed. Thanks a bunch for the tip!

    • Jello and Cali Pizza Kitchen- 2 items we love!

    • Brenda

      If anyone receives the free Shape magazine that was advertised several months back on Southern Savers, it included an insert of approximately a dozen coupons in the November issue. I believe it may have been SC Johnson brand items.

      Hi ladies
      I subscribed to this magazine when I lived in Albuquerque, NM. I LOVED this magazine! It is geared to the SW though. It has features every month of various activities (hiking spots, spas, restaurants, etc.) in states like NM, AZ, CA, NV, TX, etc.
      This would make a really good gift to anyone that lives in the SW.

      Thank you so much for posting! I love this magazine and at $5 plus coupons–terrific.

      It’s also a great magazine. It’s sort of like Southern Living (food, home, regional travel, garden) but geared toward the West. There are five regional editions within the area they cover: NorCal, SoCal+Hawaii, PAcific NW (AK+OR+WA+BC), Southwest (AZ+NM+TX+NV), and Mountain (CO+ID+MT+UT+WY). I’ve subscribed to the Pacific NW edition for years, even though I live in the South.
