    ESPN Insider...worth it?

    Only $40 for a year...seems like you get a decent amount to read on the website plus the magazine. Also looks like you can listen to the radio shows/podcasts online.

    For anyone who is a member would you recommend subscribing?

    A friend of mine has it, he says he won't renew next year. $40 bucks a year to pay for articles and info can find and get for free. Basically you're paying extra for an expensive magazine subscription.

    I have it, but only because my dad gets the magazine and gave me his logon. Honestly I dont care for it much at all, there is probably one thing a week I want to read that comes with it, and most of the time I am unsatisfied when I actually do read that thing. I'd pass if I were you.

    ^ I used to use bugmenot, but barely anything from there works anymore. Some submit broken stuff, and others submit stuff that gets vultured by other people, who then change the password. You're not finding a working Insider account via bugmenot.

    I like it. Don't pay 40, though. You can often find cheap deals on it online.

    Don't spend $40/year. I spent $12 and got it for 3 years. Here's how:

    http://www.discountmags.com/product/4627/espn

    Select how many years you want.

    Then when you check out, enter code: 5777

    It will = $3.99 per year.

    ESPN magazine is the worst piece of shit magazine ever. Also, if it was important, they would just say it on Sportscenter.

    I have had it for years and like it. Agree that you should find it for less than $40. If you choose to take the plunge, make sure you pay for it in such a way that you will not be auto-renewed, because cancelling is a complete nightmare.

    I wasn't thinking about ordering it for the magazine anyway for the guys who said the magazine sucks. But I guess I'll try to find a deal online somewhere.

    I had and liked it via getting a mag subscription but I didn't renew and don't really miss it. If I see a deal for the mag online I might get it again but I hate having the magazine sitting around because I don't read it.

    I hope no one is paying $40 for that.

    Go to magazines.com or similar and get the mag for $5-$10 then enter your subscription number on the website...

    ESPN Insider is worhtless, and yet it's still worth more than the magazine.
