Nintendo Power is $9.98 a year at Amazon.

I don't see subscriptions dropping in price often, so it's a good deal if you're one of the few who still reads gaming magazines. Plus, it's freaking Nintendo Power.

Guessing this will stack with my current sub to add 12 months on to it vs just sending me double issues.

Since we will inevitably get someone asking if the mag is any good ill just say right here - Its a pretty decent mag, nothing amazing as far as the writing goes. I find myself skimming vs seriously reading a lot of the articles. However for $10 its not bad, and if anyone out there is like me and cuts up old magazines to make poster/collages out of them then Nintendo power is a great but since it tends to have high quality prints.

Wouldn't the best deal to do an Auto-Renewal at $9.98/year?

Thanks. Was waiting for a drop to 5 bucks, but I will take the 10.

Awesome. Been waiting for a deal. My subscription expires in a few months, and I didn't want it to run out. Thanks!

Sigh, I remember the pre-interent days when Nintendo Power was like gold. I'm still not sure how they got my address for the first issue. I'm guessing my mom must have filled something out and sent it in.

Nice! Thanks OP

I got away from gaming mags because of the interwebz, but this and the PSM deal a little while back are too hard to pass up

Can't pass it up for $10, Thanks OP.

The reviews are a little biased and mostly useless to me but i do like the articles -- the best part of the magazine is the stuff that's coming out soon. LIKE NBA JAM! I was so psyched when I got that issue.

I got it for $5 from tanga but worth $10.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Be careful of auto-renewal... Amazon says the price of the renewal will be whatever their lowest price is at the time. So if you getting 1 year now at 9.98, it could be $20, $25 or even $30 when it is time to renew it in a year. No guaranteed price...

does this stack with current subscription if that was not ordered/managed through amazon? Mine subs will run out in august and going through the process through amazon, I don't see a place to enter current account number?

I'm pretty sure if not mistaken it will be ok just as long as the name and address match.

Well, I paid $5 back in September for a year, but $10 isn't too bad.

Tanga.com usually has this a few times a year for less than 5 bucks a year. So if you have a subscription, and you're truly a CAG, you may want to hold off.

Nice, picked this up. $10 is a small price to pay for hours of crapper entertainment. Hopefully they'll do something similar for the new EGM.

I mostly like the magazine, especially for upcoming info but there are a couple of things that annoy me. The Tri coverage was crap and how many times does the magazine need to pat nintendo on the back in a year. I mean 1/4 of the magazine seems like it covers what was and how great it was over and over again.

hmn.. $10... good deal.... but think I'll wait for Tanga to post it once again for $5. I got two years for $10. YES TANGA DOES STACK! Yay! My subscription expires sometime next year.
