Quite shocked that for a £30 month subscription I'm seeing ads in the app. Says I'm a subscriber. Ludicrous. Maybe I need to stick the Google News app and look at the ft content.

I don't have Google mini so probs for people activated Google pay even don't use it like me
I got a free Google Mini with my Spotify account and now a free paper.
I use Google pay, and got the Spotify/home mini offer and now 6 months of the ft. Good stuff
received this offer this morning via email. Just stopped using Google Pay in favor of Samsung Pay after buying a Samsung watch

£31.20 now. You realise you do not get a digital copy for that price? That's for the paper version only. I'm gonna try this for a month though, it's £1 for a month trial, i'm not sodding about with Google pay. Must be a bloody good paper for £360 odd a year.

I have google pay but can't see any such offer having been emailed to me - would love to qualify or if anyone was aware of a cheaper way to subscribe as an avid reader as well

Remember when you actually had to buy a newspaper and then it would still contain advertising? I don't see this as any different.

Trust me every national newspaper is trying to stay profitable in this new internet world and the only way the FT can do that and keep its standard of journalism is through a subscription and showing advertising. Plus the advertising is never intrusive compared to other news sites. Cut them some slack
I did forward this email offer to a friend, he managed to get the 6 months access as well
Is there a link someone can share or is this personalised?
I must admit I am thinking of going back to buying a newspaper because some news websites are so jammed packed with adverts, autostart videos, adverts made to look like news articles etc that the pages take ages to load and it is difficult to read the actual article you went there for. I totally ignore the websites for the tabloid newspapers because they are the worst.
I signed up for the subscription having 'bought' a google home mini recently via Spotify Family Plan. I've just recieved 3 emails from Finaincial Times saying "Sorry to see you go".
Anyone else get a cancelation email without actually cancelling?!
Signed up to this yesterday, then cancelled the subscription so I don't get charged.

FT website still working for me, so might be worth doing if, like me, you are liable to forget to cancel nearer the time.
My subscription seems to be cancelled by FT as I also recieved an email from them after around 3 days and I cant read any articles using the google account (from yesterday).

I cancelled the subscription (myself) soon after joining but the cancellation was only supposed to be after 6 months and I was able to read articles after my cancellation. The subscription is alive in google account. Not sure what is going on.

FT's T&C's state that subscription will be cancelled at the end of the month you cancel in. I also received an unsolicited cancellation email. But the app is still working and updating content several times per day. Maybe it will stop working in Monday?
