How to Get Free Subscriptions to Interior Decorating Magazines

When you are decorating your home, especially on a budget, free subscriptions to interior decorating magazines can be extremely helpful. These magazines are full of pictures and inspiring ideas and direct you where to buy furniture, accessories and finish materials to help you achieve your dream home. Interior decorating students also find magazines dedicated to their field to be very educational, allowing them to stay on top of trends. Magazine subscriptions can be expensive, but you can easily obtain them for free if you know where to look.

Many interior decorating magazines offer free subscriptions.
  1. Even if you are after actual printed-on-paper publications, there are many websites that have collected links to interior decorating magazines that offer free trials or completely free subscriptions. These websites save time, but you may also go directly to the website of a particular interior decorating magazine in which you are interested.

  2. Eschew technology by simply taking the subscription card from an interior decorating magazine you see at a friend's house, in a waiting room or nail salon.

  3. Fill in all of the required information online or on the subscription card, such as your name and address. Some magazines may only offer free subscriptions to those in the interior decorating field or related fields. Others may require credit card information for free trials, and after receiving a certain number of issues you will be billed.

  4. Watch your mail and in about four to six weeks, on average, you will receive your first issue. If you have signed up for a trial period, don't forget to cancel to avoid being charged for a subscription.

Warning

  • Before subscribing, be sure you understand and accept all the terms of the "free" subscription. You may open yourself up to unwanted emails and junk mail since some companies sell your information.
