Even in the age of clickbait, magazines can entertain
you during long commutes or waits at the doctor's office… but that's hardly all they do. Magazines inform us. They let us experience the lives of others. They offer easy-to-digest road maps to the happy, healthy people we want to be. So whether you're a man
or a woman
, a parent
or a kid
, Groupon offers a magazine subscription with your interests in mind.
If you feel overwhelmed by the rapid pace of online journalism, consider a magazine subscription that offers a more big-picture view of business
news or current events

. Popular magazines like Time
, The Economist

allow you to read relevant, well-written news articles without chewing up all the data on your phone plan or developing eyestrain from staring at the screen too long. Of course, not all news needs to be uber-serious. If you prefer to unwind with a little celebrity gossip
from Us Weekly
, the latest music releases
, or what's new in the world of fashion
, you do you.
