When you don't renew a magazine subscription...

... sometimes you get offered a better deal.  I decided I didn't want to spend ~$30 to renew Archaeology; after I didn't respond to several standard renewal requests, they cut the price in half. 

It's still a lot for a six-issue subscription, but I did renew at the new offer; I'll be blogging excerpts in the year ahead.


  1. What a pleasant surprise - I would have renewed as well with an offer like that!

  2. Another neat trick is instead of renewing through the magazine itself go to one of the large online wholesale magazine sites. Purchase a "new" subscription from them for cheaper than a renewal. I have regularly renewed Smithsonian for $12; much less than the regular renewal price.
