The credit card I use builds what I tend to think of as funny money, so I checked there first. I was able to get subscriptions to four science magazines for less than $40, overall a 75% plus savings.

Having things like your Medicare supplement premiums deducted monthly from your checking account can give you savings month after month and plus the savings of no postage.

I love finding things that give automatic savings once you are signed up for them, you never have to think of them again (for items that there is no other option). Using store reward cards can save a bundle!
