Magazine covers help people keep track of time, both from the months printed on them and the prevalence of hot tips about avoiding scurvy. Keep abreast of the times with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a subscription to one of 17 magazines distributed by Hearst Magazines (up to a $15 value).
Each month, the distributors at Hearst disseminate glossy periodicals such as Cosmopolitan, Elle, and Marie Claire. Each is packed with insightful columns, informative features, and vivid graphics to keep readers hip to trends in fashion, automotives, and the domestic sphere. Between the pages of Esquire, gents scan celebrity interviews, glean cocktail recipes, and find out what beard shape traps the most kisses. Homeowners and hopeful homeowners find inspiration between the pages of Elle Decor and House Beautiful, and car buffs ogle aerodynamic centerfolds in Road & Track. Lifestyle magazines such as Redbook deal advice on scores of quotidian topics, from work and parenting to clothes and health. Geared toward the younger set, magazines such as Cosmopolitan reveal tips on beauty, fashion, and unorthodox Twister tactics.
