Free Magazines & Books: Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re an avid reader and enjoy a continual stream of reading material on different topics, you’ll be pleased to hear the Internet serves up a wide variety of free magazines, books, catalogues, and brochures. Magazines are the most widely available type of free publication online, but you can also find a selection of books and catalogues, depending on availability. Many of the large magazine publishers offer free copies of magazines so you can get a feel for the publication before committing to a subscription. Check out the roundup of our latest magazine and book freebies above.

What free magazines are available in the UK?

There are plenty of free magazines online to satisfy most people’s interests. So whether you are into computing, fashion, beauty, cars, current affairs, or any other topic, you are sure to find a magazine offer for you. Many specialist online stores also provide free catalogues and brochures to showcase their products. These publications are ideal for seeking out unique gift ideas for family and friends. A few examples of popular magazine titles available include TimeOut, The Spectator, Evo, Cyclist, The Week, FHM, Time Magazine, and others.

Can I request free catalogues and brochures?

You can find a varied selection of catalogues and brochures available free of charge on the Web. Some websites, such as Catalink, specialise in free catalogues in various categories. But you can also find publications from independent sources. Typical examples include shopping catalogues and holiday brochures from travel agents.

How do I request free magazines online?

The process to claim free copies of magazines is simple and fast. Just view our listings above, then click the hyperlinks to access the external magazine websites. From here, all you usually have to do is complete a short online form with your details. The magazine will then be sent by post to your household address. Please note: a few magazine deals will require your telephone number. This is purely so the publisher can provide you with details on their latest subscription offers and confirm a legitimate delivery address. In other cases, you will only need to provide a name, e-mail address, and delivery address to receive the publication.

Do I have to subscribe after receiving my free copy?

No. All the magazines listed above are totally free to claim without restriction. While you will usually receive details that cover how to take out a subscription, paying for further copies is entirely voluntary. It is worth noting, however, that subscription deals are often short-lived. Therefore, if you enjoy reading a particular title, subscribing using the discount available at the time can save you significant money versus a non-promotional subscription.

Why are there not as many free books available?

Free print copies of books are few and far between online. While there are many digital copies of books available free of charge (e.g. for Amazon Kindle devices and similar), you tend to find fewer hard copies. This is largely because the cost of distributing physical books is high. Despite this, free books do appear from time to time. It can be well worth keeping an eye on this page as we update on a regular basis.

Where can I find the best magazine deals?

If you are seeking discount magazine subscriptions, we recommend Great Magazines. This website provides a comprehensive roundup of subscription deals in various categories, including motoring, women's interest, hobbies, entertainment, sport, and puzzles. You can buy single issues, back issues, or a regular subscription at prices far below those in newsagents and supermarkets.

How can I stay updated with the latest publications?

We update this section regularly with fresh magazine freebies as and when available. But if you want to be alerted when we post new magazines, be sure to subscribe to our freebie newsletter (just enter your e-mail address into the subscription box above). You can also follow our social media pages to keep updated with our latest freebies.
