Airline Pilot because it is "free" now that I am retired. They mostly go into the trash without even being opened. I liked the flying but I guess I never was much interested in the airline industry. I certainly had little interest in labor relations.

No paid subscriptions anymore. Every one I've picked up for the past many years is about 80% ads and I'm not in the market for ANYTHING. The other 20% is mostly consumer-product reports which is thinly-disguised advertising. I just cannot plow through that much advertising in pursuit of anything magazines might have to offer. The last subscriptions I had were:

Omni, which I canceled when I realized Bob Guccione was the publisher. When I find I disapprove of a person I follow up and try to prevent their getting any of my money. This was such a move.

National Geographic because they utterly abandoned being interesting in favor of being green. The two are not mutually exclusive but apparently they don't see it that way.


I've actually published a small article in one magazine and been mentioned very kindly in another since the last time I actually had a subscripion to any.

Man, I feel like a girl.

Us
People
Conde Nast Traveller (free as an SPG gold)
Road and Track
F1 Magazine (well, that one comes to Mr. Harlot)
Maclean's (so I can keep up on the Canadian news)

I also make sure to go out and buy OK! and Hello! from the UK every week. I LOVE the trashy gossip magazines. After a hard day of work nothing beats a cozy chair, a cup of tea, some chocolate, and a trashy gossip mag. I also score brownie points on flights by giving my trashy gossip mags to the flight attendants when I'm done with them. They are almost always delighted to get them.
But that was when I ruled the world

Have a few thanks to the wife using up some orphan Delta Skymiles for some magazine subscriptions including Golf Digest, some other golf one (can't remember as I have only just started doing it.

Also seem to subscribe of sorts to Business Traveller, CNN Traveller and Elite Traveller since I pick them up whenever I am in an airport lounge to peruse onboard...

Really? I rather like CNT, how do I get this? Did you have to phone SPG or can you sort it out online?

I don't know how you can get it - when I became Gold they sent me email and I signed up. I got to choose from several mags. There's a thread about it on FlyerTalk in the SPG forum - I don't remember if it has anything that will help you find out how to get a free subscription if you didn't get the email. I am sure it couldn't hurt to call.
