Currently, I subscribe to none; it's just too hard to find time to read non-newspaper periodicals these days. :( But in the past:

Boys Life
Consumer Reports
Highlights (Gufus and Galant! :thumbsup: )
Inside Sports
National Geographic (for a year, as a gift)
Odyssey Magazine (a kids' science and space)
Phi Kappa Phi Forum

US News & World Report

There may be others I'm forgetting, and I'm not including ones my parents got/get, (like Sunset, Conde Nast, Better Homes & Gardens, Sports Illustrated, Style, etc.).

The only thing that I currently subscribe to is Running Times, although I read the newest edition of Runners World via my local library.

In the past I've gotten....

Boys Life
Sports Illustrated
Runners World
Bicycling
Rolling Stone
Coalition of Historical Trekkers
Muzzeloader
Voyager, which is a historical publication put out by the Brown County (Wi) Historical Society.
Some sort of museum/preservation magazine who's name escapes me.

I know there are more but off the top of my head thats what I got.

Ah, yes, I also subscribed to "Boy's Life" many moon ago. I had forgotten. Here's two current subscriptions I also forgot...They are work-related freebies (you just have to proved current employment in law enforcement) that are mainly ads interrupted by some decent articles from time to time:

Evidence Technology Magazine
Forensic Magazine

I received my first issue of World War II magazine yesterday in the mail (a subscription gift from Christmas from Mrs. TI7). Judging by the cover...yep...it's about WWII!

I received my first issue of World War II History, another one of the Christmas subscriptions from Mrs. TI7. Nice article about how Spain's dictator Francisco Franco kept Hitler and Mussolini at bay after promising to join the Axis. (His two buds helped him win the Spanish Civil War with their resources...which was a proving ground to their belligerence just a few years later).
