The Holy Grail of Magazines

I have been a magazine lover for my entire life - I have always loved the glossy photos, the feeling of a good, new read in my hands, and the promise of a million new items to covet. I started my monthly subscriptions with Teen Vogue in my, well, teens, and continued on to Seventeen and then Glamour, with some Cosmopolitan detours along the way for sleepovers. When Ben and I got our first apartment, we started subscribing like crazy whenever magazines went on sale on Amazon and ended up recycling an insane pile of built up magazines from the last year an a half when we moved.

A colleague had mentioned Next Issue to me as a way to cut down on paper clutter and to get every single magazine you want digitally, like a Netflix for magazines. I considered subscribing based on my current magazine mania, but like many things, got busy and just didn't have the opportunity to subscribe.

When I had the opportunity to try out Next Issue, I was over the moon. Next Issue offers you an unlimited access package of 84 monthly digital magazine subscriptions for your phone or tablet (one subscription can be used on up to five devices) for $9.99 a month. With premium access on Next Issue, for $14.99 a month, you can access all monthly and weekly titles too - that means People and US Weekly for the gossip lovers and long plane rides and The New Yorker and Time for those more inclined away from the celebrity spectrum. NextIssue provides the holy grail of magazines, running the gamut from Wired to W to Lucky to Vanity Fair and you can access all back issues as soon as you subscribe.

The screenshots below display the pretty, easy formatting of Next Issue and the variety of titles and back issues available. Did I make you hungry to read yet?

I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own.


  1. If I had the extra $15 a month I would be all over this, it sounds absolutely amazing.

    Fashion and Happy Things

  2. I wish I had the extra cash, this looks amazing!

  3. Wow, I want this so bad! I may actually try it...I'm in graphic design and I want to specifically design for a fashion magazine after I'm done school, but I realized that maybe I should start reading more magazines! So thanks, this is awesome :)

  4. Very cool website, I'll be sure to check it out!

  5. oh ill have to give this a shot! i love magazines but not the space they take up! this may be for me :)
