If you want to save money on your Guardian and Observer newspapers, then you've come to the right place. With the increased prices starting yesterday, the Guardian and the Observer together now cost £8.10 pw, but thanks to the all-new Guardian and Observer Subscriber scheme, you can now get your newspaper of choice for up to a third less than the normal cover price.

How does the scheme work?

Sign up to the scheme and we'll send you a book of vouchers which can be handed in wherever you normally buy your paper. If you have your newspaper delivered, just hand all the vouchers to your newsagent and they'll sort everything out for you. You can subscribe on a monthly, quarterly, six month or annual basis.

What packages are available?

You can sign up to three different tiers of subscription:

Seven-day Guardian and Observer package
Six-day Guardian package (Monday Saturday)
A weekend Guardian Saturday and Sunday Observer package

You can subscribe on a monthly, quarterly, six-month or annual basis. Weekly price for both the Guardian and the Observer shown.

its probably just a typo!!!!

This is a poor deal - it'd be cheaper to buy Andrex in bulk in Tesco - it's softer, more absorbent, doesn't get ink on your nether regions and it doesn't unravel in a leftward spin like the Grauniturd/Absurder does... :thumbsup:

P.S. True to from, the deal is somewhat deceptive - the minimum subscription period is one month, payable only by direct debit, so the deal for the Grauniturd/Absurder package is really a minimum of £23.40 by direct debit or, if you want to pay by credit card (who'd want to let yet another bunch of lefties pick their pockets whenever they please?) then the minimum subscription period is one year at £280.80. I suspect you'd have to be a pretty committed Grauniturd/Absurder reader to save much from this deal vs. the flexibility of the pay as you go cover price, when you take into consideration holidays and other times when you might not pick up your subscription copy.

May I just quote from one of your earlier posts:

Why are (some) people on here so quick to criticise people helping others find good deals? Not everyone is going to like every deal, but the variety of deals is one of the fun parts of HUKD! Try being a little less twitchy and a little less critical!

Maybe instead of making rather silly and very hackneyed Grauniturd/Absurder jibes you should go quietly back to your Daily Mail or whatever other Tory-slanted paper you choose to read.

We can probably trace the slime marks to back under the stone.

Crikey, is this at least how much money i'm spending on papers a year! It makes me want to stop buying them all together!

Ooh, there's a surprise - a humourless Guardian reader! - twitchily searching back through the past comments of an eviiiiiiil toreeeeeeey to mount a straight-faced counter-attack! You'd have been better off spending the time learning how to use the quote function properly! :)

My analysis of why this deal isn't such a good deal (even for dyed-in-the-wool, blinkers on, rose-tinted spectacle wearing Guardian readers) is perfectly valid - you exchange the flexibility of paying as you go for buying every edition in advance for a not so big discount. Not such a great deal, even if you like The Guardian, once you do the maths. I'd say exactly the same about the Telegraph's similar subscription offer.

P.S. The other deal, from which you quoted my earlier comment, was indeed a genuinely good deal (unlike this one) which was being voted cold by those who don't appreciate relatively expensive quality goods even when they're heavily discounted. Quite different from this deal!

Apart from your lame and pathetic play on words which unsurprisingly didn't get any funnier the third time around - I can't quite see what all of the fuss is about with the above post.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear - seems my attempts at a little Monday morning repartee have caused offense with those earnest enough to read The Guardian. I'm so sorry. I suppose I should have just been quietly thankful that at least we can choose whether or not to buy the newspaper version of The Guardian, unlike the broadcast wing, trading under the name of BBC News, which every TV owning household is compelled by law to subscribe to! :)

I think your forlorn attempt at humour was more then cancelled out by your unprovoked and unnecessary overt newspaper snobbery.

You would have to pay me at least double that to read the Guardian



Why's that then? Not enough tits and bums or too impartial, balanced and not vitriol enough for you?

Voting hot and will do the same for the Times - I'd much rather people read a quality newspaper, than read The Mail, Sun, Metro or Evening Standard

Looks like you can dish it out, even if you can't take it yourself...

Anyway, there's plenty of tits and bums in The Guardian - who do you think writes it? :-)

Sorry - I was joking implying you crawled from under a stone - but thanks for confirming it was not the humour i had hoped.

I think you'll find that I asked valid questions. If The Guardian is unreadable for someone then the other extreme would be red tops or outspoken right wing rags.

Interesting comments from the Guardian supporters, I'd hate to see your opinions on something really serious:w00t:


What like football? :)

I gave up buying a newspaper every day a few years ago. Gawd bless the internet!

Leaving aside the nonsense and concentrating on the moneysavingdeal...

The thing that puzzles me about the weekend package in particular is that they don't seem to recognise that there are a varying number of weekends in a month. With other newspaper subs they are for a number of weeks for the obvious reason. Maybe it's solved in the small print but superficially seems flawed.

Not tempted personally but if one does read/have-delivered a newspaper title regularly then subscribing to it can save a very worthwhile amount, especially with the opportunity cost of money (ie saving income foregone) is ever lower.

i don't think it's that great a deal - here's a money saving tip for anyone who reads a broadsheet (or what used to be broadsheet, before they shrank them all) - if you live near a university, pop into the student shop during the day. Most Student Union buildings allow anyone in before about 5 in the evening, and the newspapers normally only cost 20 or 30p for the broadsheets - my old SU sold the Grauniad for 20p.

I personally don't buy the Guardian that often - it's too right wing for me - but anything that gets people reading real news, and keeping up to date with world affairs is surely a good thing.

I must admit that I never really buy papers now too - unless for a special offer from here - or a flight, train journey, or on holiday if I have no full screen net access.

Although my second cousin (who I have never met) writes for the Guardian...
