And the likelihood of receiving all manner of marketing calls and junk mail as a result of taking up this freebie is?

the more savvy freebie taker has a specific email address for such spam related enquiries.

I even have a phone number from a free simcard that I use too.

Do you also have your own PO Box address?

I had their previous offer of 13 copies of The Economist for £1. I cancelled it after that (some time last year) and I've had no junk mail since. I did get one phone call from a well-spoken young lady at their office wondering if I'd perhaps like to renew my subs, but when I said "no thanks" she accepted that and went away.
The readership of the paper is not a part of society that takes kindly to being sold to, or is susceptible to crass marketing. (They didn't get to be rich by spending their cash on rubbish: even highly priced rubbish and their classy advertisers know that)

So no, I doubt that you'll be troubled by telemarketers and junk mail. Though as others have pointed out, it's just common sense to use a disposable email address for any online freebies and offers.

as a warning I'm guessing you won't be allowed any other offers after using this one? as they say NEW subscribers only, and after this one you will no longer be a new subscriber?

They not too bad with spam, if they ring you a simple no thanks suffices. Good magazine too, just wish I had the time to read it at the moment with my workload!

i got an insert in mine giving me 4 weeks of the FT for only £1

usual thing where you cancel DD before the full rate kicks in

now to find some time to read all this!!!!!!!!
