Magazine Values at Publishers Clearing House

Promotions of magazine values abound here at Publishers Clearing House, but have you ever thought about the real value of magazines?

The other morning when I sat down with my bowl of steel cut oatmeal, sliced over-ripe banana and mug of freshly brewed French roast coffee, instead flipping on CNN for the latest headline news I flipped open a magazine. Piled atop a heap of mail on the kitchen counter, its red-framed cover with a black and white silhouette of a pregnant woman and a headline touting the first nine months’ influence on one’s eventual adult health caught my eye. Relishing in the nostalgic silence of an announcer-free breakfast, I embarked on my mission to speed-read the featured story, not really thinking about magazine values or any other values for that matter.

En route to destination page 51, I paused to read a thought-provoking article on the meaning of free speech under the First Amendment. Next, I shuddered through must-know facts about the recent bed bug epidemic. Shaking off that crawly feeling, I started turning again, only to encounter another “deep dive” detour at a report about the inspiring efforts of a female oceanographer to protect diverse undersea species and their ocean habitat.

Page after page of well-written articles about super-interesting topics, and I hadn’t even made it to the feature story yet! Upon arrival, page 51 didn’t disappoint, either. I was genuinely impressed by the amount of value in this magazine. I hadn’t read an issue of TIME magazine cover to cover in quite a while but right then and there I decided to get back in touch with my values.

The ever-present stream of news and information on television and online has many benefits, and I’m a big proponent of the easy access! On the other hand, the pure joy of reading well-written, in-depth exploration of topics like those found in this magazine is one of the magazine values that can’t be equaled on-screen. It’s a different kind of entertainment – probably stimulates a different part of the brain – maybe there’ll be an article about this in the next issue of TIME magazine.

Of course, if you’re looking to explore the entertainment value of magazines and other magazine values, there’s no place better known for magazine values than Publishers Clearing House. Why not try out a magazine subscription at pch.com?

Happy reading!

    I agree that magazine choices r terrible! Only way to get them is play at least 3 entry games and than you get to go numerous entry’s before magazines pop up!! Would like to just go search for their magazines, but impossible!!

    Someone really needs to check out your magazine link! I’ve been trying for a week and I either get sent back to the sweepstakes or I get an error message. This is beyond frustrating. I’m all for bringing back the stamps at least I can make them stick sad that with today’s technology we’re willing to go backwards! Also looking at the comments made it’s been an ongoing for months.
