JuMex Success



















This is a reference to a JuMex post from awhile back. Refresher: http://ballersinarms.blogspot.com/2011/04/jumex-tip-5.html Well it appears that I found an super old TIME magazine that belonged to my dad. It was dated 1966. I read some of the articles and it's about the escalation of military action in Vietnam. That's right, not all out war, but an increasing escalation... so this article is older than the war. And then one these little beauties falls out. And I think: Mission Accomplished.

I checked on Amazon, a subscription to TIME is now sold for $30 for one year (56 issues). That equals 54 cents an issue. That means 33 issues would now be sold for $17.82. But with this you can get it for $3.97! Hax! I wonder what would happen if I mailed this subscription postcard in...

Whoa interesting. It's always interesting to read material that relevant to a certain period and then comparing it to the overall event thereafter. Lol I'd like to see the response to you sending in those old postcard subscriptions. Thinking it over, if they were to factor in inflation, then $3.97 from 1966 would cost about >$26.00 today. However, I'd still like to see how they'd react to the older ones from a few years back... especially the ones with free book/watch offers. :D
