Advantages: It's free! Money off vouchers inside. Good recipes.
If you ask me, it is always worth picking up the monthly edition of this magazine (you will find it in store at the end of checkouts). For a start it is free so if you don't like it you won't have lost anything but you also might gain as each issue has vouchers for specific products which you normally have to spend during that month. There is a mix of stuff in here from the latest clothing collections, to beauty tips and entertainment reviews. Normally there are some quite good competitions as well, for example this month you can win a laptop or one of two 40 inch televisions. Mainly though, I pick it up for the seasonal recipe ideas - this month the focus is on strawberries and there are some delicious looking illustrations accompanying them. As you can expect with a free magazine there is a large element of advertising included in the contents, however, this is blended well with the articles and doesn't stand out like a sore thumb. There are some parts of this magazine that I find boring because they are irrelevant to me, such as articles about child nutrition, but to be fair I don't expect to like everything about it, and there is a bit of something for most people. Overall, it makes a good coffee break read and I often rip a couple of recipes out to add to my ever expanding pile of things I'd like to make one day!
Summary: A good freebie that's worth a look
