You may have noticed that renewal notices for magazines you subscribe to and organizations you belong to arrive in your mailbox months (sometimes years) before the actual renewal is due to occur. Recently, GrandBoomers decided to test some of these renewal offers to see if the deal was sweetened as the actual renewal date drew closer. It worked. Just about everyone from major magazines to AARP offered a discount off the original cost...if only we would renew.
So, here's a way you can save some money in the new year. Hold off on your renewals until the last minute. Let us know if you got a sweet deal, too.
