Fancy winning one of 9 digital magazine subscriptions – and getting a voucher for a free magazine too? Then read on …
If, like me, you own a tablet device you’ll probably find it’s taking over more and more of your life. Just this week alone I’ve used my iPad to type some of my book, draw a picture, edit a photo, list some things on eBay, catch up on TV, find a meeting location, listen to a podcast, choose a recipe for dinner, read the news, connect on social media ….. you get the picture! It’s definitely become my “can’t do without” gadget.
Something I’ve only recently started doing is reading magazines on my iPad. My app of choice is Zinio, which is a free app available for iOS, Android and computer. It’s home to thousands of magazines from around the world, including top UK titles like Elle, Cosmo, Top Gear, F1 and Newsweek. You can buy magazines individually or buy a subscription, normally 6, 12 or 15 issues.
The beauty of digital magazines is that they can include interactive material – instead of reading an interview you can hear it; instead of a review of a film you can see trailers and clips – and web links take you straight to the website.
Anyway, Zinio are currently running a sweepstake and everyone entering will receive a$5 voucher which can be used to buy any magazine in the Zinio shop, or to put towards a subscription. (And if you’re in the USA or Canada you also have the chance to win an iPad Mini!) The sweepstake ends on 1st December 2012.
Click here to enter the sweepstake (opens in new page)
NOTE: To get your $5 voucher fill in the form and make sure you either share with friends or skip on the next screen – you’ll then be asked for your email address again and will receive your voucher code after that. Vouchers must be used by 30/11/12.
Win a digital magazine subscription
And in exchange for promoting their sweepstake Zinio have given me 9 digital magazine subscriptions to give away to my readers. (OK they actually gave me ten but I’m going to use one myself!)
To enter the draw for one of the subscriptions simply share this post on your favourite social media network, and leave me a comment on this post to let me know where you shared it. You’ve got until the 30th November 2012 to share and comment, and the nine winners will be drawn at random and notified by 7th December 2012 – giving you time to get your prize before Xmas in case you want to give it to someone as a gift!
So get sharing, get commenting and keep your fingers crossed!
UPDATE 11/12/12: This competition is now closed. Congratulations to Laura, Alison, Jase, Brian, Catherine, Katie, Linda, Kerry and Steve who were the lucky winners!
