Not only were the magazines provided to the bank visitors for free, the subscription details instructs the reader to send his or her details to Hinge Inquirer Publications either by fax, sms or e-mail, to get a chance to get a free subscription. The only downside is that the offer for free subscription is valid only to residents of National Capital Regjon. But don't feel too blue, if you still want to get your copy, the reader can apply for an online subscription. Details on how to do get an online subscription to Hinge Inquirer Publications magazines are found at the end of this post.
Anyway, I first sent my application via SMS for Southern Living magazine because that was the first magazine I saw at the bank and I was so excited that I can send my request via sms for a Hinge Inquirer Publications subscription right away so I sent my request as soon as I read that I can get the magazine for free. Unfortunately, I did not receive any confirmation message that the request was received.
This prompted me to send my information via e-mail. So the next day, I decided to send an application for Northern Living magazine via e-mail. I received a confirmation message right away with the following response:

Thank you for patronizing Northern Living.
The reason I chose to pursue my Northern Living subscription is because the places I frequently go to are located in the Northern part of the metro. Hence, the entire magazine was very interesting for me.
I did find things awesome ideas about the South as well after reading sections of Southern Living such as "Only in the South", "Southern Eats" and "Art and Culture". I think those are my three most favorite sections of Southern Living. I love the articles because I learned something new about the Southern part of NCR and it actually motivated me to visit these places not just when I'm in the area but to actually plan a trip to visit these hot spots.
After I finally got over my enthusiasm with my Southern Living magazine that's when I opened the Northern Living version of the subscription. I was surprised to see articles similar to those I have seen in Southern Living.
Just like Southern Living, the Northern Living magazine also has features unique to the northern part of the metro. If I have to choose between the two subscriptions, I would definitely choose a subscription from Northern Living. Why? Not that I am very loyal to Northern cities but because I find the information very useful to me. It was so useful that I was able to decide on what restaurant I want to visit for Valentine's day together this year together with my loving husband as early as third week of January.
Well given the chance to have both subscriptions, I would definitely welcome it. I was thinking that the information I can get from both magazines can be material for blogs I am going to use for my website about consumerism. And just as what the idea of the magazines promote, my blogs will appeal to the people who are residents from different ends of the national capital region.
Whilst I am so excited with my Northern and Southern Living, my husband prefers to read MultiSport. Multisport magazine is another free subscription from Hinge Inquirer Publication. It appeals more to health buffs and sports enthusiasts.
The MultiSport is comparatively thinner and has less articles compared to Northern Living Magazine and Southern Living Magazine. However, do not think it is less significant. The articles are matter-of-fact and provides useful suggestions intended for its target market.
The three magazines: Southern Living, Northern Living and MultiSport provided an enjoyable way to pass time while waiting for my turn in the bank. I have never enjoyed a bank visit this much. I can actually even say, I look forward in visiting the bank again next month. But the best thing of all is to receive my very own subscriptions of Northern Living and Southern Living and Multisport for my husband.
