So someone mentioned AdPerk as a way to get free magazines. As of today the only have Dwell and Popular Science. I sat down and watched a few videos (10-15 minutes?) while eating breakfast and earned a free subscription to Popular Science. If they had a little more selection of videos it’d be more interesting. They did make me answer a very easy CAPTCHA at the end of each one (no swirly colors, just tilted letters). It was really easy and painless and it worked on my Apple Macintosh with Safari (you can’t always count on that).

The downside is the magazines they have (and plan to offer) aren’t particularly expensive or anything. I’m not interested in Dwell so I have no reason to go back to their site anytime soon. I don’t think I can earn and save points for the future or at least I could watch for now…

I have a few suggestions for them:

  • Figure out a way so I don’t have to watch a bunch at once, e-mail me a link every few days to watch a video (with enough info in the link so I don’t have to log in) and just have it keep track of my points.
  • Store up my points for magazines that I can choose later (on non-magazine gifts too).
  • Figure out a way to let me watch them on my TiVo or my AppleTV or some other lazy interactive type device (where I can be lazy and sit on the couch)
