Life is too short to pay full retail for outdoor gear!

$7.92 for two years BTW. Can't beat that. I got it for 10 bucks earlier this year for a two year re up but this is amazing!

Thanks for looking out, Corduroy!

There are ridiculous deals on magazines all over the place. My wife has a few subscriptions that are very similar to this deal.

Got burned by a door-to-door salesman once in my youthful innocence, but I pulled the trigger on this one! Thanks for the find!

I guess if it is a scam, you can dispute it on paypal or dispute the credit card charges!

It's legit. I have multi-year subscriptions to Backpacker, Outside, and Outdoor Photographer through them. I doubt I would have paid full price, but saw this deal a while back and couldn't pass.

It's one of those daily deal sites, and unfortunately the "good" magazines don't come up too often. But I do have some random things that I thought "Wow! That's cheap. I guess I need one."
