NEW LOWEST PRICE: today only, Real Simple magazine for $3.75 for one year on Amazon (31 cents per issue)

Real Simple magazine is one of the priciest (and one of the most sought-after) magazine subscriptions out there. It has a cover price of $4.99 (which translates into $59.88 for the year over 12 issues) and its annual subscription price everywhere is a little less than half of that, $23.88.

Today, 12/22/19 only, Amazon has got a great deal on a 1-year subscription to Real Simple for $3.75 PER YEAR, which is less than the same price for one issue on the newsstand!  At $3.75 per year, that's 12 issues for 31 cents per issue!

By the way, if you already have a subscription to Real Simple, this is also good on renewals as well (just use the same name and address that you used to subscribe; check your magazine mailing label).  Your subscription will be extended by another 12 issues.

It does auto-renew, but no worries, here's what you do to fix that: right after you subscribe, under your Amazon account, click on the Manage Magazine Subscriptions link, find Real Simple and deselect the auto-renewal option.  Voila, no more auto-renewal!

Cyber Monday Book Deals at Amazon and Target

This is the first year that I can remember that Amazon didn't run its usual Black Friday book deal, and I think they've gotten a bit of pushback on that (I know that I'm not happy)!

However, they do have a deal on eBooks, as well as a sort-of hidden deal on select print books.  And happily, Target decided to fill that vacuum and run their own Cyber Monday book deal. 

All of the following books deals are automatic at checkout and don't require any promo codes.

Here we go:

TODAY 11/29/19 ONLY: Sazooy Smart Watch for $9.72 on Amazon. Great reviews!

Amazon has got this Sazooy Smart Watch priced at $21.59, but enter promo code 555Y8IVP at checkout and that price drops to $9.72 with free Prime shipping.  I believe this price is for today (11/29/19) only.  Great reviews!  4.6 out of 5 stars over 60 customer reviews.  Limit 10 per account.

I'm not saying that this watch will take the place of an Apple Watch, but from the excellent reviews, it seems to have many of the same functions. And if an Apple Watch is not in your budget, this watch, at under $10.00, is a nice frugal alternative.
