Extension of Magazine Subscriptions into Y2K?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I have been at odds regarding the necessity of renewing various subscriptions to favored magazines. Some magazine companies provide that extra two or three year extension rate at a special discount. However, I've wondered whether I would be casting my cash into the Y2K rathole if I mail them a check for renewal when I could be using my hard earned dollars to stock up for the next Depression.

Thus far I've decided to renew for only ONE year on selected magazines, so that if the economy crashes by Y2K, then at least I'll have some information-packed issues which I can reference during 1999. I've allowed some ephemeral publications to expire. My computer magazines and gardening magazines are very informative, and I don't want to miss out on the latest hints.

What are your views on this topic?
