Shape Mag - $1.79 for 3-year subscription on ebay

The title says it all - a hot deal right now. There are 8 subscriptions left. Go to ebay, and search for item #230145625556.

No, this isn't SPAM, I just thought others might want the deal too. I have no idea if it's legit or not, but I just paid my $1.79 for 3 years of SHAPE, and I hope it arrives!

hmm, sounds like the company is trying to boost subscription rates and using a viral technique to market. Interesting.

OP here

What's a viral technique?

If it means selling the subscriptions for way cheap, then I'm okay with that! If it means replicating postings on various message boards, then no, I just posted it here b/c I just bought it. I saw it advertised on, which is a bargain website that I check out every day. Hopelessly addicted to the internet... Argh...

I have bought 7 or 8 subscriptions from ebay and they all came earlier than promised and for as long as promised. For some of the subscriptions I even got 13 issues instead of 12. The issue for the previous month AND the next 12.

GO for it!

OP again

I guess even if i get 2004, 2005 and 2006, they'll still have tips and recipes that I haven't read, so I'd be okay with that!

I'll let you know if I get it!
