Now in its second issue, the Memphis, TN-based bimonthly publication will offer items like Apple iPods, cooking appliances and beauty products to readers who refer family and friends to the magazine. Airline frequent-flier programs inspired the effort.


Current subscribers can visit www.chickensoupmagazine.com and register for the loyalty program by clicking on the "Shop for free" tab on the home page.
