    I'm trying to subscribe to some of the BBC 3 for £1 offers given on the offers thread but whilst the offer is on the link given on the other thread - I only get the option of £18ish?

    Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong!

    Cheers
  • ch0ccy
    Just wondering if anyone knows what will happen if you cancel one of the subscriptions which says "minimum term 12 months"? Will the magazine company pass your details to a debt collection agency or any other consequences? TIA!

    how to cancel my she subsrciption?
    I want to cancel my she subscription....took out the £1 per magazine trial with the magazine group. I've ended up paying for further magazines as despite googling my socks off, I still can't work out who i need to contact to cancel it! Any ideas or thoughts appreciated!!


    EDIT... Ok you guys have inspired me to take a few more subscriptions out (as long as i can cancel them before paying full price this time!), but a little confused.

    Was thinking of doing a few of the bbc 3 for £1 magazines, but when i take it to the checkout it comes up as "save 50% - paying just £18.60 for 12 issues by direct debit". So how does the payment thing work? Do they take out the £1 first, giving me time to cancel before making payment for the rest of the subscription?

    Sorry if being a bit dim, just a little cautious this time around!!

    What I have always done is that as soon as they have taken out the first direct debit, I just cancel the dd on my online banking. On the 3 for £1 etc mags, they take out the £1, then you cancel your direct debit. I have been doing this for a few years now and I've never had a problem.

    Please can someone tell me how long after they subscribed did they cancel the dd for the 3 mags for £1 offer? i dont want to do it too late and get charged more but dont want to do it too early and not get any mags. I only signed up for them today!
    thanks
  • Bumble_bee
    oh Helen, sorry just read your msg-how did you know when the first dd payment is taken out-do you get an email?

    Thanks Helen, put my mind at ease! So, am i right thinking that you never cancel subscriptions with the company, just cancel the DD? Don't they chase you up as a non-payer, as surely its bound by a contract of some sort that you agree to initially?! Gonna try your way anyhow!

    I just check on my online banking statement; also you should receive a letter by post and that usually tells you when the first payment will be coming out of your account.

    Cbeebies Update!
    Well, still dropping through letter box, along with a letter explaining that the bank rejected the direct debit ( how on earth did that happen :rolleyes: ).

    Have written a lovey reply saying I had taken it as part of a 3 for £1 trial, only to discover it is a bit young for my dd.

    Anyone been brave enough to ring them?

    First time I've had a letter despite taking out at least 20 subs & cancelling.
    Now proud Mumto3

    I cancelled my dd with my online banking as soon as the inition £1's were taken, however I have noticed that the company has tried to take out some money but it has been paid back in by the bank as 'unpaid' (which is good) however I am now worried that the mag companies will be chasing me for money...

    Just noticed my mags have started to dry up so I've subscribed to Tatler ( free Molton Brown) Marie Claire ( free body shop) and Psychologies ( always fancied trying that one) total cost £18 with £5.80 back from quidco hopefully.
    Before now I've always made a list of free gifts etc but I've now resolved to also write down what date they'll finish so I know when to look out for new offers again.
    Haven't paid full price for a magazine in over 18 months now!
