Amazon is having a sale this week until Saturday June 5th at 11:59 PM (PT). You can subscribe to all of these magazines for just $5 each for one year. It is also good for renewals. You just need to make sure you use the SAME exact address that is printed on your current mailing label and they will tack it on to your subscription. If you have the subscription through Amazon already, just visit your Magazine Account center and you can extend your subscription through there.

In the past when they've done these deals I've found if I wanted to add more than 1 year if I ordered early enough, once the order "shipped" after a day or so, I could re-order the magazine again and it would extend my subscription even more.

MODs please cagify the links to Cheapy gets credit, thanks!

Great that's good to know. Just wanted to make sure that Cheapy gets credit for the sales. :-)

Oh wow. I might need to do that.

Out of curiosity, one-year auto renewal is also $5...does that mean each year it'd still be only $5?!

I don't like having a sig, but for CAG, I figured I'd sheep along.

Nice find, thanks. I was bummed when they had the half price sale a couple days after I subscribed to OXM, but a $5 renewal makes up for it.

Awesome - I subbed to all three about a year ago through Amazon and they all are just about to run out. I'm on my Amazon account all the time and never even noticed the Magazine subscription link - but there they all are, with $5 renewal options - thanks for pointing this out OP!

Though I'm not entirely sure it is worth it, even at $5. I don't think I read a single OXM or put a single disc from it in my 360. I did read the Playstation and Nintendo Power ones a bit, though.

Is there something in these mags that you can't get on the intertubes? I would have jumped on this in the past but I'm not sure now.

Nice find either way OP.

Awesome deal. I kind of had a difficult time making up my mind, but in the end I decided on getting a Nintendo Power 1-year sub mainly due to the fact that I just bought a Wii and a DS.

Thanks a lot, OP. Sadly, you just made my night. :lol:

I originally got them for airplane reading but I didn't end up making as many work trips as I had in the past and I pretty much just brought my GameInformer for that. If it wasn't for airplane trips I'd almost never read these. I did show my kids the LBP 2 spread in one of them though (either GI or the Playstation one, I forget).

Excelllent. And as usual, I highly recommend Nintendo Power. It was hugely overhauled some years back and it is a fine mag now.

So, when the OP says they wait a day, is that a day after the order is created, or literally a day after Amazon updates the order status as shipped? (Which I hope is during the sale period)
You hurt the right person and you're wrong for life.

I'm seriously considering that OXM sub as well since I don't actually have a PS3, and I don't play many PC games. Plus, look at that cover price: $119.88. ROFLOL!

What a deal. I'm still kind of on the fence though since the only copy of OXM that I ever got came with a demo of Virtua Fighter 5 that only worked when it wanted to.

Can someone please confirm that the OXM subscription actually includes the DVD's? One of the apparent "helpful customer reviews" is the only thing that's keeping me from pulling the trigger. Thanks. :)

Like I said, I've only ever got 1 issue but it did come with one. Plus the description says "print+dvd" so I'm sure it's included.

Yes, the OXM subscription comes with the DVD. I've had this exact subscription through Amazon for over a year and each issue has come with a DVD.
