    Discount vouchers are not a prize but a marketing tool. IMHO.

I emailed Bauer via the contact email address given for their puzzles magazine several days ago but as yet I haven't received a reply. They must have taken this down or it may have got lost when they changed the site over. The moral of the tale is - enter asap. I will keep pressing for this to be reinstated on the site.
