If Highlights magazine was a childhood staple for you, you’re going to want to check out this deal that will help you get your own kids reading even more.

Groupon is offering a deal on Highlights magazine right now that will get you up to 87% a subscription. What a bargain!

Highlights magazine is geared toward children ages 6-12, and each 40-page issue is filled with games, puzzles, stories and activities. Science and craft projects featured in the magazine help teach practical skills in math, science and reading that will come in handy in school.

The magazine has been educating children since 1946, with the aim of helping “children become their best selves and become curious, creative, caring and confident individuals.”

Now for a limited time on Groupon, you can choose a variety of subscriptions to Highlights for up to 87% off. The best deal is a one-year digital subscription to the magazine, which is now just $5, regularly $39.96. If you choose six print issues, you’ll save 49% and pay just $15.


Other choices include a one-year subscription (12 issues) for $27, which is 54% off or a two-year subscription (24 issues) for $56, regularly $118.80.

Shipping is free on all print orders, but there is a $2.99 fulfillment fee required at redemption. Most orders ship within 6-14 weeks.


The promotional value of the Groupon expires 90 days after purchase, so you will need to visit the website listed on the voucher to complete redemption within. There is a limit of one subscription per person, but you may buy four additional as gifts. The deal is not valid with other offers or promotions.

If you have pre-school children, you can get the same deal on Highlights’ High Five magazine.


Groupon does not say how long this offer will last, but more than 1,000 people have already taken advantage of both deals.

There are plenty of other good ways to encourage a life-long love for reading, from free reading programs to encouraging your kids to earn a free pizza by reading more with Pizza Hut’s Book It program. Hey, whatever it takes to get your kids invested in learning!
