9 Best Monthly Subscriptions You Can Try For Free

There may be no such thing as a free lunch, but a number of big-name subscription service providers are offering extended free trials to get customers to take their services for a spin. In this case, the lunch is totally free, assuming you remember to cancel your subscription before the trial period ends. And who knows — you may even like the service so much you’ll consider staying on as a paying customer!

After all, that’s the whole point of the free trial in the first place.
