Never trust these magazine deals, If you go cancelling the direct debit it is fraudalent as you have agreed to a contract of more then the 12 issues just with the first set at a reduced rate. Cancelling the Direct debit is like getting a mobile phone contract with the first month half price and then cancelling the direct debit before that contract is up and just assuming you get away with it. It is breaking the contract and they WILL come for you.

Just do a search for other magazine deals in which the OP assumes they can get away with it and all the angry people who then gut stuck footing the bill for the ops mistake.

I have done it before 'unknowingly' (had not read the small print) and they threatened me with debt collectors.

They really need to stop magazine deals or stricly monitor them on this website, as I am pretty sure encouraging people to break a contract they agreed to with no other reason then to try and get something for nothing is against the law.

You are subscribing to 30 issues of Radio times, with the first 4 for a price of £1 and the last 26 for £28.60. you are NOT subsrcing to just 4 issues, the contract is for 30 issues that you agree to. What makes this deal even worse is this fact is not even small print, it is right there CLEAR AS DAY. READ people.

Wrong ...I have been doing this for years. You may receive one letter asking you to re submit your bank details but then they leave you alone. To be safe, then change the name on the next offer .
A lot of these deals rely on subscription numbers being high enough ie Time Out mag, so they are always offering 13 issues for a quid ( 1 issue is £2.99 ) !

done !

Choc, you're a star. Thanks.
Have done this for my Mum but don't quite understand when I should cancel. You mentioned you did it after 6th copy but doesn't that mean in 6 weeks?
Thanks for any help.

I cancel the dd once the £1 has been taken out, then 6 issues in I e-mail customer services with my subscription details and cancel any future issues, it's more of a courtesy thing

as you've paid in advance for the 12 issues they don't refund you but continue sending :thumbsup:

Oh I see. That's brilliant. Thanks a lot!

Reser is talking rubbish above; ignore him and his misunderstanding both of the specific terms of this offer and his beliefs as to the legal implications, contractual and otherwise. That said, it must be a matter of personal conscience whether one should repeatedly take advantage of a special offer that is supposed to have a limited time-span.

I signed-up for a similar RT subscription about 20 months ago which gave me a fixed number of issues for a nominal sum and then could be continued six months at a time in consideration of a prepayment of £15. I have stuck with it, happy in the knowledge that my £15 purchase was not only initially good value (as it bought 26 issues at the then cover price of £1) but was inflation-proofed - RT now costs £1.10 and normally increases in price just after Christmas each year. I can keep that contract going as long as I wish at the original price; equally, I can cancel it at any time and get a pro rata refund. Not a bad deal, I think (even at the current price), and no need for trickery.

What's in it for RT? Simple - an extra subscriber with a degree of future commitment and another target for various BBC marketing activities, which one can simply ignore. And I get my RT on the doormat every Tuesday for 57p!

Hot!
Looks like some misunderstanding from some people in this thread. I have done these sort of deals for the past eight years with various companies and never had a problem with them 'coming to get me' after cancelling the DD. I have had free gifts with subscriptions too and they have never been questioned by the company.
I just followed the link and subscribed to Top Gear, Sky at Night, Focus, Good Food, CBeebies all 3 for £1 and RT 12 for £1!
Excellent. £6 for 27 BBC magazines!

I'm 99% certain my bank charges me approx a tenner to set up a DD, and same to cancel. Not such a good value after all - 12 issues is going to sting me £21 anyhow.:?

Hidden bank charges - beware folks!

Err, I think you need to spend a bit of time on MSE and aquaint yourself with Martin Lewis!

Hidden - no. Either you are being charged as you are breaking some rule (like unauthorised Overdraft) or you hold a business account. In any case, DD's should be free (for most). Did you not hear of the Business acount holder who got £36k back from Natwest from this kind of charge? I think the standard account record is £8k - I myself got £5.5k (incl interest) about 2 years ago!

Stonking deal, despite the nay sayer! Look luv' if you cannot be asked to note small print and note in your diary - sort your life out!

No one seems to have mentioned if Quidco is available. I think it is and will investigate and report back shortly.

where do you input the code....:-D

Yes it is.You need to go via ISubscribe,the 12 issues for £1 is already offered with no need to input a code.Just choose your region.The cashback is £4,which makes the deal even sweeter.£4 cashback is also available from Topcashback and i believe Froggybank also.
As others have stated,there is no problem with being tied in.I have been doing this deal now for the past 3 - 4 years and have had quite a few different RT subscriptions,when one finishes,just look around for another deal/code and start again.....simples.
Thanks to op.:thumbsup:

The publishers advertising rates are related to subscriber numbers so they still gain from even a short increase in numbers.

I did this last time, worked out fine... except I cancelled the DD after I received the first issue, and they never sent me anymore issues. Still, they didn't take the quid either so no worries, lol.

Just tried to order these but can't see where to enter the voucher code RTE0709G ??

Worked it out in the end, also did it a gift subscription and got the same 12 for £1 deal on that too :-)

Sorted. Thanks a lot. Heat added. :-D

Are you being serious here, or have you had a bang on the head?

Just a note, you can get TV and Satellite Week through the iSubscribe site as well, 6 issues for 1 quid. You can access the site through quidco. It's not as good a deal if you're not particular about which mag you want, but for those who prefer TV & Sat week, it's a good offer. I'm thinking of taking the RT offer just to check out radio listings, but I already subscribe to TV & Sat week and prefer it for TV listings.

The code no longer seems to be working on the bbc magazine site. When i go through isubscribe it says the minimum term is 12 months. Can anyone help me and tell me if there's another way or have i left it too late??:oops:
