19 free gifts

Okay, so maybe I'm getting a little petty here, but this question has been at the back of my mind since I heard of a certain magazine.

Why do they need to give 19 free gifts to get you to subscribe? I've heard of magazines like Time, for instance, giving one free gift or Sports Illustrated giving one free gift, but why 19?

It makes me think they are desperate for subscriptions. Is it that bad of a magazine, they have to give you 19 free gifts to get you to order?

19?

First listed is Focus on the Family. That's enough to get me running in the other direction PRONTO. And yes, I am a Christian. (A point that is really nobody's business, but just added for emphasis -- the silent group speaking up, Doc.)

Scrolling down the list, oh, there's BJU Press...another supplier that I will never buy from. Ever. Not even used.

Scrolling further...oh wait, LOOK, it's NO GREATER JOY, Debi Pearl’s best homeschooling ideas from 20-plus years of homeschooling.

Yup, free, with your subscription. No Greater Joy. Free. One of the 19.

Three strikes, you're out.
