FREE Subscription to Parents Magazine or Parenting School Years Magazine (+ More Options!)

Hip2Save may earn a small commission at no extra cost to you via trusted partners and affiliate links in this post. Prices and availability are accurate as of time posted. Read our full disclosure policy here.

Check out how you can score a FREE subscription to either Parents magazine, Parenting School Years magazine, Scholastic Parent & Child magazine, Field & Stream magazine (+ more!)…

* Go here and “like” on Facebook, then click on the “Fan Event” tab to score a $5 Cash Savings Pass – which you’ll be able to use like cash on any purchase! Just make sure to copy the code you receive after “liking” their page.

* Next head on over to Ebates and login or register, then search for in the search box. After doing so,  scroll down and you will see a HOLIDAYMAGS coupon code listed (like the pic below) – click on the “Shop Now” link.

* Once you are on the site, stay on that page (as these are the magazines that are valid for the HOLIDAYMAGS code) and scroll down, then choose to sort low to high.

* All of these magazines listed above will be FREE when you combine the HOLIDAYMAGS code with the exclusive savings code you scored from Facebook.  I chose Parenting School Years! I LOVE all the additional bonus coupons and savings that are usually found in these magazines!

* Start the checkout process and login or register, then enter your mailing address. Under the payment info section (don’t worry about filling it out!) there is a question with a box that states “Do you have a coupon code or gift card for this purchase?” Check the box and input the HOLIDAYMAGS code in the coupon code box and then the exclusive savings code from Facebook in the gift card code box. Now click “Apply to Order”

* Your final cost will come to $0 AND you won’t have to enter any credit card info! Gotta love it! 😀

(Thanks, Bucktown Bargains!)

  4. Chrissie

    Awesome! Thank you so much, Collin!

    When I ordered it showed me $0 but when I printed the receipt for my records its showing me total as $4.97. I dint add my CC info though. Anybody has same problem?

    • Kara

      I had the same problem. When I pushed submit it said $0 but then when I checked my account it said $4.97. I have ordered from them previously and have an account. I emailed them to see what is going on.

      • yangzi

        The receipt shows $4.97 because the certificate code you got at Facebook is like a gift certificate instead of coupon code. I just checked my previous orders with same deal (I got $5 certificate codes from them) from last Christmas and the receipts all show same.

  6. Linda C.

    Just talked to and the customer service rep said that it appears that Facebook is duplicating the coupon codes. Therefore, whomever gets code “XXX” first and uses it for the $4.97 balance on their magazine, then the next person who comes along will only get the remaining 3 cents off of their order for using the Facebook code.

    She (the cust svc rep) sent an email to all four supervisors to look into this and give me a call back so that I can get the offer.

    I’ll let Collin know what I find out if/when I talk to a supervisor.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      I would love to hear the answer to this please. I got the message about my gift card being used or something.

    • SenoraE

      It duplicates based on computer. So if your husband has a FB page, you will get the same code as him.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      I’m having the same problem with the fb code. I’m only able to get $0.03 off for a balance of $4.97.

  7. trailmama

    Only one promotional gift card may be activated; you already have a promotional gift card balance.
    won’t let me use the facebook code AND the HOLIDAYMAGS code 🙁

    • Dee

      Me either. So bummed!

  8. Diana

    I have got the confirmation mail to my registered email and the TOTAL is $0.

  9. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

  12. Mandi

  13. alannah

    got mine thanks! the total was zero. didn’t need to put CC info…

  14. Kara

    I ordered Parenting as well. And when I pushed submit it said $0 and but now when I checked my account it says $4.97. I have ordered previously and I already had an account. I just emailed them to figure out why it wasn’t $0.

  15. Erica

    Nope. It won’t let me use the FB code and the HolidayMags code.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Hi I just ordered it now and it worked. make sure you enter the holidaymags code on coupon bar and the FB code on gift certificate bar. Also make sure you clicked the ebates link for it to work. Also select only what was listed on the holidaymags because I tried to select shorter month subscription and it didn’t work even though the title is included.

  16. Heidi

    Got mine, thanks!

  17. Lily


  18. Lisa

    Got it, awesome. Thank you!

  19. Nikki

    With so many magazines rolling into the house for myself hubby will be happy to have a subscription for himself for field and stream =) Thanks for all you do Collin, you are awesome!!

    This is the fine print at the end of the order screen:

    Automatic Renewal Service By clicking Submit Order, you agree that now and prior to each renewal term will charge your credit/debit card at the low price in effect. If your card cannot be charged, we will send you a bill. You may cancel your subscription or automatic renewal status at any time after placing this order by calling 1-800-MAGAZINES. Your satisfaction is 100% Guaranteed.

    There’s no way they can charge me if I don’t enter payment info, and if I don’t pay the bill they send at the end of the subscription term, it will cancel, right?

  21. Bianca

    It’s still not working for me :(. I guess it’s just not meant to be

  22. Sherry Awarf

    I would really like to send one of these magazines to my brother for Christmas since I really can’t afford gifts this year & he is always so generous to me, However I completed the form, owing zero & it won’t let me submit the order:/
    I looked everywhere on the page for anytype of error message but there isn’t any. When I tried to call, I got an automated system that put me on hold then hung up on me.

    • LISA

      I had the same problem…make sure you ‘select address’ from the drop down menu and click on the recipient’s addy…then you should be able to click submit!

  23. amy_marie

    Just ordered this for my mom, thanks so much!

  24. soldiersgirl531

    Yippie-Got it to work.I was having a problem at first but luckily I copied the FB code as I of course wrote it down wrong .Thanks Collin-I love magazines w/ 4 kids&the Hubby in the Army so he’s never usually around:-( I don’t get to read like I love to ..but I have plenty of time to skim things lol!

    • Kim

  29. Amanda Hair

    All the $4.97 mags are gone! The cheapest ones they have are $10.97 now 🙁

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      That would explain why I can’t get the HOLIDAYMAGS code to work either!!!!!

    • Gloria

      That would explain why I can’t get the HOLIDAYMAGS code to work either!!!!!

  30. lori

    I can’t get Holidaymags to work. And the prices of the Parenting magazine is higher then 9.99. What am I doing wrong? Getting frustrated
