10000 Free Moneywise Magazines

Update Note 9.31pm 21 June 2006. All 10,000 now gone.
Sorry all 10,000 have now gone, I hope everyone got a fair crack of the whip, this is why I put the link up last friday to give those who wanted it most a way to get it. I've now removed the access link below.

What is it?

Moneywise magazine is the largest circulation money monthly. Alongside my normal column, the July edition includes the winner of the 'Britain's best MoneySaver' contest launched in conjunction with this site in March (see the original info).

What's this freebie about?

After some negotiating I persuaded Moneywise to give 10,000 free copies away to MoneySavers, the normal cover price is £3.95. This is a total freebie, ie no need to sign up and cancel the direct debit like the normal free magazines thread. Of course Moneywise will include details in there of cheap subscription offers for those who'd like to sign up.

AN IMPORTANT plea from me. Please read

Please don't just purely grab the freebie. If you won't read the magazine or aren't interesting in reading it (it's more hardcore money than the consumer finance stuff usual in this chat board) please leave copies for those MoneySavers who'll enjoy it. It took some tough negotiating to get the 10,000 copies.

When's it out?

It is the July edition of Moneywise, which is in the shops on 29 June.

    Thanks for this and well done on getting 10,000 free. I think its a great idea that anyone who wants one needs to come back at a later date to get it. That way, it means it will be genuine people who really want it make the effort to do so. Keep up the good work Martin youre great. :T
    P.S. I would just like to comment on your spot on GMTV this morning, its the first time ive seen you being interviewed on tv and your immense passion for what youre talking about is an inspiration to everyone. It gives people the confidence to take on the big boys and win.

    Great! The money saving revolution goes on. Will be back on Friday to get my copy. It is good for the MOneyWise magazine because us MSEers are exactly their target audience.

    Come back here at 2pm on Friday (16 June) when I'll add the link to this thread. This has been done deliberately so that those who receive the weekly emailfirst don't have an unfair advantage.

    Martin :)

    I have signed up 2 emails main account and google.
    The weekly emails dont come on the same day .. 1 of them always a day later . Why is that?

    While I breathe.... I hope

    I actually have a membership suscription with Moneywise ( I pay £1/issue through an Airfrance promotion). However the magazine has not been distributed lately (more than 2 months) as Moneywise has been supposedly bought by another company..So I reckon you will have to wait quite some time before receiving your copy...

    Have set reminder in mobile phone for Friday - mobile phone which I got a new cheaper contract on thanks to your advice! AND I've got a water meter saving me £20 a month thanks to you, Martin. NOW I think I'm ready to take on the bank because I need that money they've slipped from my account over the years. A million thanks.
