    I have a niece and nephew (1st and 2nd grade) and I would like to get a magazine subscription for their Christmas gift. Any ideas? Where do you get discount subscriptions?

    I checked Highlights - it's $35! No way. I'm looking to spend $15 or less. My nephew loves dogs and my niece is a girly girl.

    My GS enjoyed National Geor magazine. I think they have several, but you could choose the age appropriate one.

    National Geographic Kids and Ranger Rick are $20.

    I always use studentmags.com. It's for students and educators.

    What about American Girl magazine for your niece? It sounds perfect for her.

    I once got a discount on magazines through the NEA website. I haven't checked it out in a while though.

    Amazon usually has good deals on subscriptions.

    Do NOT buy subscriptions from eBay. I did that once for my nieces and they never received them. eBay and paypal have a limited time to get refunded and the magazine can be set to arrive after that time period. Even thought a bunch of people left feedback saying the seller stole our money, none of us could get a refund because we were all too late. That was a few years ago but thought I would share because they were listed cheap.

    great gift idea though.
