Introducing Free iPad Subscription for Magazine Subscribers

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

We found one more way to help you get ready for another school year. Starting with the September Back-to-School issue, print subscribers can receive free iPad editions of Parents magazine. Head to the App Store for tablet extras like Playroom, where you can discover the latest and greatest books, toys, music, and more.

After you download the app, tap the red button under “Current Subscribers.” Then log in with your mailing address or account number (the 10-digit number printed on the mailing label above your name). You will be asked to enter your name and email–preferably the same account you use to register on

If you downloaded the app before Aug. 5, update it and follow all prompts. You won’t be able to subscribe via the old version of the app.

Not currently a print subscriber? No worries. You can get an annual digital-only subscription for $9.99! Customer service can be reached at 1-800-727-3682.

UPDATE: Some iPad users have reported that they can view only the first page of each story. If you’re experiencing this problem, it may be because you’re stuck in horizontal mode. Change to portrait mode, close out of the app, and re-open it. That should resolve the issue. Thanks for your patience while we work on a permanent solution.
