As an industry, magazine subscriptions of course, aren't new, but a new trend emerging in the market allows more flexibility, by allowing magazine subscribers to receive a compilation of their favorite magazines at a lower monthly cost.
Maghound may at face value seem like a traditional subscription services; after all, you sign up and you receive your favorite magazines on a monthly basis. But if you look further below the surface, this subscription business is much less confining than what we're used to as magazine subscribers.
In order to receive your favorite magazines, all you need to do is select the package, based on the number of magazines you'd like to receive per month; ranging from 3-7, or a build your own subscription package for 8 or more magazines. At $7.95 to $9.95, the price is right for the magazine subscriptions, so subscribers continue to receive the discount benefits available for those who order directly from the original publisher. However, in this case, there is no annual contract and subscribers can change the combination of magazines they receive on a monthly basis if they want more variety.
A subsidiary of Time Inc. Maghound offers a wide variety of some of the most popular magazine publications available; including Forbes, People, National Geographic and Maxim. Since there service is geared towards the distribution of monthly magazine publications, subscribers who want to receive magazines published weekly can, but at an additional monthly cost.
Maghound magazine subscription service is based out of Tampa, Florida and is currently only available to residents of the United States. Hopefully Maghound will expand their shipping range to include, as a start, the rest of North America and open up purchases to those looking to provide gift subscriptions.
