Will wait till after xmas then contact them.

In case anyone is still having issues with the £1.00 direct debit.

I emailed them a couple of days ago - just got a reply

Having checked the database I can see there has been a failure with the payment collection system, and as such you have not been debited the £1.00. This is an oversight on our behalf and we apologise for the error.



We will be writing to you to confirm the date of the next collection and you should receive the letter tomorrow (Saturday). I apologise for any inconvenience caused and can confirm that the magazines will continue to be sent to you in the meantime.


So if anyone else is still waiting you may want to write to them.


I've got the Christmas issue now anyway so I'll be cancelling soon. May just wait for the new year issue.

I received a letter a few weeks ago saying the first direct debit (£1) would be taken on 22 November. Nothing's been taken from my account as yet. Should I ring and cancel my subscription?

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I just checked and they've done the same to me and again no £1 had been taken from my account.

My last issue arrived last week, I had no problems.

I'm still annoyed (largely at myself for misunderstanding what was required) that after cancelling the DD after £1 came out I didn't receive any more issues so ended up having to buy the Xmas one anyway.

Glad to see they gave in on this one.

Perhaps i'm blind but are there several options that i'm not seeing? I can only see the one offer for 3 issues for £1 in which case it seems like the quickest re-post due to a price change in history. I'm sorry, but couldn't you have just left the other thread to be amended?

If you sign up for this you have to cancel your direct debit immediately after the first issue has been received because they take the next six months payment out pretty sharpish afterwards and often before the second and third issues have been received.
