Default Magazine offers - 3 for £1, free gifts etc ONLY POST OFFERS HERE

This is a continuation of the previous thread here.





PLEASE ONLY POST OFFERS HERE DISCUSSION POSTS SHOULD BE PLACED ON THE NEW THREAD HERE




The following note is from Martin:

Now I'll probably be struck out of the NUJ for writing this. However magazines use a host of marketing tricks to get us to sign up, and often stay subscribed even if we're not reading their magazines.

Yet active MoneySavers can use this to their advantage. There are lots of different types of deals, but most effectively say "sign up by direct debit" and we'll give you three or six mags for free (or for £1). Sometimes you may get a free gift too.

Their aim

Their aim is you forget to cancel the DD whether you like the mag or not, after all a subscribers a subscriber.

MoneySavers aim

Sign up. Read the mag. Cancel the direct debit at the end of the trial and possibly sign up for another trial with the same magazine all over again. Of course we shouldn't kill the magazine industry. Don't repeat this too often. if you are a loyal follower then get your subscription - it's always substantially cheaper than buying it again and again in a newsagents anyway.

More about the list below

Below is a categorised list of magazines with these type of offers, based on information provided from MoneySavers. It's sectioned into subject categories and sub-sectioned into offer types. Of course offers change, so do check the terms and conditions before you sign up.

Please continue to post your magazine spots and periodically (forgive the pun) we'll update this list

Talking Benefit Lip Kit with Harper's Bazaar for £6.47 a quarter (first 300 subs)

Hello all! Found an offer I hadn't seen before today:

http://tiny*url.com/luxtc (take out the star before copying it into your browser bar...wouldn't accept it otherwise!)

Benefit lip kit with £6.47 quarterly sub by DD of Harper's Bazaar (apparently this includes membership to the Bazaar VIP club: Exclusive VIP benefits this quarter include:

An invitation to an exclusive Bollinger event
Discounts on Abercrombie & Kent holidays
Reductions on Aspinal of London leather goods
Free samples of Estee Lauder Re-nurtiv Re-Creation Day Crème and Night Crème, worth £77**)

They're tightening up on the T&C's, though:

*This offer is valid for UK subscriptions only (excluding BFPO addresses), when you pay by direct debit, and is available to the first 300 subscribers. Please allow 28 days for delivery. All orders will be acknowledged and subscribers advised of start issue within 14 days. This subscription may not include all promotional items packaged with the magazine. Initial 12-month non-refundable contract. The normal full UK subscription rate is £43.20 for 12 issues.

Hope this helps someone - I'm eagerly awaiting the next batch of Red/B/Essentials giveaways myself...since none of them *sob* have come through for me!
