May 23 is Lucky Penny Day!
Find a penny, pick it up,
and all the day you’ll have good luck!

To celebrate Lucky Penny Day, Geist is offering a Good Luck subscription for 1 cent off the usual special rate.

Yes it's true: act now and you will save 1 lucky cent off the regular super low price of $20.00 for a one-year subscription to Canada's smartest cultural magazine.

Here's what the Lucky Penny Deal works out to in raw numbers:

First, as you know, the Canadian penny has been discontinued and will soon disappear forever. The reason: it costs the Mint 1.6¢ to make a single copper cent.


  • 1 penny = 1.6¢
  • 1 penny = 2 thoughts (as in "a penny for your thoughts")
  • 2 thoughts = .8¢ each
  • 1 year of Geist = 2500 thoughts (at least)
  • 2500 thoughts @ .8¢ each = 2000 cents worth
  • minus your Lucky Penny Day discount = 1 cent
  • equals a Lucky Penny Day subscription price of 1999 cents
  • Your savings = 1¢ (worth 1.6 cents under the old regime)
  • And the bonus, of course, is, as always:
  • "a penny saved is a penny earned."

Subscribe now for a year's worth of Geist thoughts (more than 6 per day), along with exciting new fiction, strange new non-fiction, wonderful new poetry, photography, comix, maps and more, even more, Geist thinking:

"Worth more than its weight in copper!"
