Three Tips for Ordering Free Trade Magazines

This isn’t the first time I’ve mentioned a deal for free trade magazines. See some old posts on trade magazines here. But every time I do, I get some questions about what you can do with trade magazines, and why they can be worth ordering? Here are my top three tips for ordering free trade publications:

  1. First things first: if you are not going to use the magazine (as with any freebie) DON’T order it!
  2. However, check out my list here of what you can use those free trade magazines for.
  3. Pick up some new trade magazines (they’re free) here.

Great 16-Piece Dishes Set

I love love love this deal that The Thrifty Mama pointed out. For a limited time you can get a 16-piece Corelle dinner set for $25 shipped! I so wish I had an excuse to buy 2 sets of these right now.

Here’s my favorite design:

100 Mommy Cards for $1.99 and My Big Mistake!

If you’re working on getting things in order to celebrate mother’s day well ahead of time, this might be the offer for you. Vistaprint is offering 100 Mommy Cards for $1.99 right now.

I’ve talked about Vistaprint before, but suffice it to say I have ordered probably ten times from Vistaprint. Most disappointingly, though, I made a huge error in my last order! I used this deal to get free business cards to go to Blissdom, the awesome blogging conference in Nashville.

Vista Print

On the last day of the conference, MomStart took my card (I had probably passed out about 200 at that point). She looked at it for a moment and then said: What is your email address, though?

Yes: I hadn’t put my email address on my business cards! Can you believe it? That is probably THE most important part of a business card, no?

Moral of this story: Proofread your Mommy Cards before purchasing! Pick up the deal here.
