On its face, it looks like a great deal. Transcontinental Media is using couponer Toronto Deals Blog to offer a one-year subscription to Style at Home for $11 and for the Hockey News at $23. But the fine print in the "one-day only" deal is that, while you nominally save 56% off the newsstand price, you'll have to pay $5.95 for shipping, handling and applicable taxes on Style and $7.95 for Hockey News. (An earlier coupon offer had Canadian Living (12 issues) for $18 bonused by 6 issues of Elle Canada, but that didn't have the added shipping and handling provision and taxes were included in the price.)
