    Radio Times 12 for 1 including the double Christmas issue 30th Sep 16 at 2:54 PM
    An earlier Radio Times (now 2.30 per issue to buy) had a leaflet with it containing some good offers:

    http://www.buysubscriptions.com/summer

    Probably the best of the offers is the Radio Times 12 issues for 1, but there are several more good offers on the same link which might do for yourself or Christmas presents.

    The Radio Times '12 issues for 1' offer includes the double Christmas issue, so the saving isn't far short of 30 over the 12 issues.

    Cancel the direct debit before the second payment of 39 is taken if you choose to, or just let it run (which is what they want, of course). It's still a bargain, even at 39 for 26 issues (59.80 cover price, even without any price increases).

    Quidco or Topcashback will probably even get you your 1 back!

    I pay 52p for TV Choices with all the info but it does lack the RT articles .

    The offer varies according to the time of year between 6 and 12 copies for 1, but it's never just one!

    Thanks for the reminder, Doc. I was refused the last offer (think I've done too many) so pleased I've been accepted today. Hopefully TCB will come good too.

    I was refused the last offer too. I rang them and was told, 3 strikes and you're out, (you can only apply three times.)


    Maybe it's worth another try if you've been accepted. Have you received your confirmation letter of DD?


    Ordered and confirmed but that doesn't mean to say it will be accepted.

    It's a direct debit they set up, and you need to cancel it with your bank in good time (at least a week) to stop the first 39 payment being taken. You should get a letter or an email showing the actual date. To be on the safe side you should also cancel with buysubscriptions at that point.

    There's no reason actually why you shouldn't cancel the DD immediately after the initial 1 has been taken if you choose to - just advise buysubscriptions and ask them to stop after the initial 12 issues.

    I also now buy the 52p TV Choices, which I think is perfectly okay. OH moans about it because he says you don't get all of the channels that RT has, but too bad.

    Last time I took up the RT offer I did actually let the subscription carry on for nearly two years, but then it just got too expensive - they nearly doubled it so I cancelled

    Fingers crossed, last time they didn't let me enter any details, just said I had already had the offer. TCB have tracked the 1 already.


    Think it's going to be ok.

    Anyone know the latest start date this time I don't want Oct or Nov.

    Used quidco last time 1 tracked so free


    Edit :


    latest date to start was mid Jan so plenty of options to decide which period you want to cover, went for Dec-Feb.

    Bless you OP & all posters both for reminding me of this *&* of the TopCashBack!

    Part of my Christmas Holiday is charting out what to watch, to listen to & what to plan to catch up. It so rarely *actually* happens (family after all!), but it is nice to know when things are supposed to happen.

    I wasn't even going to bother to try and get this again, but then they sent me an email with the offer, so I thought well why not give it a go. I haven't been advised yet that I can't have it.

    Just wish I had known about the Topcashback - that would have been the icing on the cake

    suspect they have dropped us, as I have had offer before.

    That's odd - I've never known them stop a subscription once the order's been accepted.

    Did you get the normal written confirmation from Immediate Media showing details of the direct debit (name, account number, collection dates and amounts)?
