hot

but give yourselves a little kick first

did you actually end up opening them last time round? if not, you're wasting £1 and not exactly helping the environment or your bin quota

Tried ordering will not go beyond checkout, payment comes up error, then sent back to Home page, and have to fill all details in again, tried, registering, still errors with this too, brilliant deal, was hoping to send as a gift for someone who I know still buys this weekly, shame, will have a go later.
Had another go, still had problems, but managed it eventually !! Really pleased .

Ordered, thankyou

Ordered, thanks very much. Used the same email and bank account as last time, no questions asked!

I tried ordering last time and it appeared as if the order had gone through, but the scheduled first issue didn't arrive. Contacting them revealed that the order had been unliaterally cancelled "as I'd had a previous trial" (within unstated timeframe).
So my advice is DONT rely on an apparently successful order being fulfilled. You need to double-check with them that they haven't fooled you into thinking they've taken your order!

Mine was also cancelled with the same reason and money refunded.

Done... also £1.01 TCB so 1p profit - will use them, then use them for void fill in packing or recycle them.

Thanks OP!

Just took out a subscription as will soon be on holiday
The site gave me the opportunity to set a first issue delivery date in the future
I guess my subscription runs from today, not the first delivery date

Can you cancel at any time during the trial period and still get all 12 issues?

I have called the call centre to check and you don't have to wait until the 18th October, you can start from the next issue and it will include the Christmas issue.

Bought as an extra Xmas present for someone, starting at the beginning of December. Noone will know it cost -1p with TCB!

This person is disabled and watches a lot of TV so perfect!
Well done OP!

Ordered last year in a fit of nostalgia. Didn't open any of them.

Trial Offers
From there terms and conditions.
On occasions we may offer short term trial subscriptions for customers paying by Direct Debit e.g. 12 issues for £1. At the end of this trial subscription, the price you pay will revert back to the then current standard subscription price. We reserve the right to reject or cancel subscriptions at any point if the customer has previously cancelled their subscription during the trial period for that magazine.

Giving this a miss this year after getting a warning when I called to cancel last time.

Be warned I did this last year and never received the Xmas edition. I called to complain and was told that this was not part of the offer.

States £1/£1.05 cashbook for trial orders costing £1. It's only £5 cashbook for orders £5 or more

Topcashback also states "Offer excludes trial magazine subscriptions on direct debit payment terms that are less than £10. Offer excludes all merchandising."

Just a heads up that it is not the bumper 2 week Christmas and New Year issue due to how the weeks fall this year.
It may well be the week leading up and the Christmas week but New Year week will be another issue.

I agree, I think finding programs on your TV's own EPG is easier anyway and signing up with tvguide.co.uk will give you TV highlights sent direct to your email.

EPGs and TV highlights are all well and good for some people, and if that's enough for you all well and good. But some of us want all the detail and background information that only the Radio Times provides.

Some people are content with what they get from the Express and Mail - others want the Times and Guardian. It's a bit like that with the Radio Times.

I agree but I'm still tempted by this offer.

Anyone know how to bypass their automated cancellation? I'm blocked despite completing the subscription on the web site.

took more than that but got there in the end!

Cheers for the reminder, got one for us and one for my parents, used a different email, same bank. £5 quidco tracked too

:)Thank you, ordered & first issue arrived today

Received confirmation letter and they have set up DD but no Radio Times.Rang them and they say you cannot get a trial subscription a 2nd time,so be warned.

has this expired yet?
thanks

hurrah! After 2 months and 3 days my first radio times arrived today! Result - many thanks for posting

Ordered mine at the end of September issue to start 6th - 17th December, first issue just dropped through the letter box

Caution, I just had to cancel mine early as they took £39.00 on 26th June! The company IMMEDIATE MEDIA were actually very helpful and refunded but check your DD's online to see if they have tried the same.
