What's going to be the next GREAT magazine buy?

Anyone else like me, hear of a great deal where a magazine or newspaper has more voucher "worth" than its cover price, buy quite a few, feel that you won't be able to use all the vouchers then really regret not buying more copies once its gone and you've managed to use ALL the vouchers really easily?? Kicking myself for not buying up all the Bests, more Sunday Mails etc... LOL.

Best has been the best deal so far - 35p cost, £7.75 return = 2210% return!!
The Times on Weds - 55p cost, £4.80 return = 873% return
Mail on Sunday - £1.20 cost, £5.57 return = 464% return
Buying vouchers on eBay - £10 cost, £20 return = 200% return

Roll on the good deals!!

Oh, btw, I spoke to Zing about my subscription and at the same time asked the lady if they are planning on doing any more joint promotions with magazines like Best and she said not for the next few months but keep an eye out in 5 or 6 months time.....

    I emailed the Mail on Sunday, some kind person put up an email address and today I had a huge envelope arrived with the whole of the Sunday supplemets, including the little orange voucher booklet

    This was in the Sunday mail, so check back to Sundays posting on the vouchers board. Dozens of us were checking newsagent up and down the land to try and find a MOS with the supplement and the booklet, mostly they were missing. There are £1.55 in coupons plus another 2 coupons for Olive mag worth £4.02.

    Well, the July issue of Zest does have good offers, however I was specifically after magazines that allow you to stock up on coupons to use elsewhere to get money off things you would normally buy - like groceries.

    These kind of coupons in a sense have a monetery value as they result in cash back in your pocket!

    And thats 3 times you've posted about the same offers LOL.

    What does 'buying vouchers on Ebay' mean please and have they all gone?
    I was a board guide here for many years, but have now resigned. Amicably, but I think it reflects very poorly on MSE that I have not even received an acknowledgement of my resignation! Poor show, MSE.

    This signature was changed on 6.4.22. This is an experiment to see if anyone from MSE picks up on this comment.
  • If you type 'voucher' or 'coupon' into Ebay search it will list all the vouchers/coupons that people have up for auction, it is a great way to buy some coupons cheaply that you can use in many supermarkets without buying the product, so say you won £20 off vouchers but had only bid an amount of £8 you have made £12 profit-free money in my eyes!!
    Hope this helps!
