Thanks OP! Great find. Does anyone know if you can use the gift card for online groceries on the Waitrose website?

You can also get 12 issues for £1

£50 John Lewis Card is hard to spend for many as they are usually undersold.
I do not consider a £50 JL card worth £50. I prefer the cash.
I just could not find what to buy for £50 when I received a card to spend free from loft insulation.

​can normally

Once bought can you unsubscribe straight away up to the 26th issue? As every 1/2 a year (26th issue) I guess you would be charged £49.99 for the next 26 issues.

As soon as your direct debit is taken, cancel it with your bank so that they can't take any more.

Great deal if you want more than just the Christmas issue!

Is it possible to select a delayed first issue...say, sometime in December?

Just to answer my own question...

I just went through the checkout process, and I was able to select any issue date, up until 31st January 2017 as my initial issue...

So this will dovetail nicely with my current "12 issues for £1", which is due to finish on January 17th...So I selected January 17th as my initial issue.

Not quite sure if this means my £49.99 DD will be delayed because of this, and consequently the £50 JL gift card, but as long as it all arrives eventually, I am happy with that.

How did you find the deal via Quidco ? As I can't find the link, keep getting the 12 issues for £1.00 offer..

​i had a similar issue. I can see the deal fine from my mobile. But when I try to view from my wife's mobile it doesn't appear when I search, I wanted to do it from her quidco as she has 10 bonus. I could find it by searching for radio-times on my phone via quidco was bottom left Ie result 7 of 7. But no matter what I did from my wife's it would not appear in any browser, with either desktop or mobile engine even after clear app cache....

I didn't bother with Quidco, to be honest...Getting this effectively for free was enough for me...I just went via the link above.

£49.99 for the subscription, and £50 back in JL Gift Card...that was good enough for me...

wow - you saved £1

please ask yourself if you will actually read this rag

I got the last edn so that my daughter can get a free month's Netflix

nobody has even opened the Radio Times - which is a pretty pointless publication these days

Er, no...I actually subscribe to, and read Radio Times, so I got a 6 month sub for free...

Plus, I actually shop at John Lewis regularly...so the John Lewis £50 gift card is worth £50 to me...

Just because you don't like/read Radio Times doesn't mean every one thinks the same...

Nooo arrgh! Any other retailer gives that? Would have gone for that but I have stopped shopping at John Lewis after they decided to support Daily Mail, The Sun and Daily Express in their hate campaign. I lose, they lose .. but on the other hand .. I sleep easy ;-)

Pointless, maybe, for the sort of people who see the Sun and Mail as quality newspapers, but not for the 3/4 million who choose to buy it ever week. It's readership is 42% AB, 69% ABC1 - that says quite a lot, but probably not to you.

Don't search for Radio Times on topcashback or quidco, you need to search for "buy subscriptions"

I'd suggest using topcashback as they explicitly quote the radio times deal:
topcashback.co.uk/buy…ns/

Ordered! Great deal - thanks OP!:D

You're still completely missing the point. If you think a 172 page magazine selling 3/4 million copies every week is just a TV schedule you probably also think the Guardian's all about security men. It says a lot more about you than it does the Radio Times. X)

got the current edn in the downstairs loo & it's garbage apart from the listings - tbh I prefer a quick scan of the Lidl flyer much more interesting

Signed up for December 24th any idea when the JL gift card will come through?

I haven't got round to doing the £1 offer yet this year, but will be doing it soon.
I'm not sure it's worth spending £50 to save £1 though.

It plainly isn't worth doing this just to save £1! Or even £5 with Quidco.
It only makes sense if you actually want the Radio Times, and that was why I posted it. 26 copies bought in the shops costs at least £59.80, so to get them effectively for free seemed a pretty good bet.

I wonder why people bother to put up these great deals when all they get back is abuse! Everyone has personal preferences but that doesn't mean because you don't like it is not a good deal.

You didn't understand my comment. I do want the Radio Times, which is why I'll be doing the £1 offer, although now I've looked at it again that is for 12 issues, so in actual fact by spending £50 you'll be saving £2!
Unlike some of the other commenters, I do like a paper TV guide as I find it more informative than online guides

I got this offer with a profit! TCB has tracked due to pay in 2 weeks

My brother in law who has additional needs loves the Radio Times and buys it anyway, so this is great for a gift for him - he's also very hard to buy for!

what?You can use it in waitrose...so its like £45....or £50 if you buy and compare your groceries

or just spend it on booze/cigs/milk

or forget this deal if you dont shop there and just buy the radio times subscription for a £1 or £1.50

hotukdeals.com/dea…726

So confirm its £9.99 for 52 copies of Radio Times delivered to your door, so 19p a copy or a LOT less than a 55p 2nd class stamp?

Can someone confirm post #37 before I press the button.
thanks

I do not drink, smoke or eat meat. Waitrose is not close, parking is not free and their prices are higher than other supermarkets, so not worth £50 to me. Waitrose milk is expensive compared to others. I do not think the quality is superior.

For anyone who buys the Radio Times or knows of someone who does, this is a no brainer of a deal - surely!? You can tick the gift option and send the subscription directly as a Christmas pressie to someone else, if you don't want/need it yourself. When you receive the £50 gift card (valid instore/online at John Lewis or Waitrose) if you've no use for this either, you could always give it to someone else for Christmas. Potentially two pressies sorted for a fraction of the usual price & cashback for yourself too. Unless I'm missing something it seems a brilliant Christmas deal to me - HOT from me btw OP
