There are many benefits to taking out a subscription with the National Magazine Exchange. First, you will save a lot more money than if you purchase your magazine from a stand or a store. Second, you will be privy to lots of promotional products sales (more savings). Third, if you choose to take out your subscription with the NME, then you get to “exchange” your magazine even in the middle of the time-frame, with no questions asked, if you want.
So, for money-savings and convenience, it is worth looking into getting a subscription to the NME.
