Got the following email today - may be useful to anyone who regularly buys the Times & Sunday Times. Over the min 12 week period it costs £42, so less the £25 voucher that's £17 for 12 weeks of newspapers - sounds like a fairly good deal. Looks like they send you dated vouchers through the post to use at any newsagent you like. Here's the blurb...
