A great rate,
This review is from: O, The Oprah Magazine (1-year) (Magazine)
This is a great rate.
I have been a subscriber for a number of years.
For renewal, O is offering $24.00 for 1 year and $44.00 for 2 years.
Amazon is offering $16.00 for 1 year and $24.00 for 2 years.
Why do magazines give a better rate for new subscribers than their current loyal subscribers?
I just let my subscription expire and brought it through Amazon.
Also, on the renewal card I got from the magazine, in small print, it says they will automatically continue to renew my subscription at the current rate. They don't give you the option to opt out. So they want to lock you in at their higher rates.
I love the magazine but gave it one less star because of the above.

Because they buy a lot of magazines in one bunch and they have a bigger system to sell them.

I ran into the same problem with my InStyle subscription. If you find a lower rate on a subscription card, just call the company and tell them you want to pay the lesser amount. The person I spoke to was very sweet and accomadating. I hope you have as much good luck as I did!
