Free Financial Times e-paper, No Registration, Purchase or Email Required

I have found a way to get free FT ePaper online. Normally you have to pay £2 per issue at the newsagents.

Page updated at 5am everyday

Steps:

1. Go to google.com
2. Search for "financial times epaper"
3. Click on the first link "should be ft.com/FTe…per"
4. Choose your region and enjoy free epaper

I am not sure if this is an exploit, but going straight to ft.com/FTe…per DOES NOT work and will send you to the subscribers page, but going from google somehow sends you to a proper page.

Not sure how long it'll lasts but it's worked for me for the last week. Saving me £2 a day.

Why? Thanks for the post - good one. :thumbsup:



Apologies

I meant "delete" in the fact that a post I made was wrong and I therefore edited it but had to put 5 characters

Not a reflection on the link

Thanks - good find :thumbsup:

Thank you. A good find. :thumbsup:

nice one.... h&r added:thumbsup:

Amazing. Thank You.

works great although i prefer a printed paper but its free so voted hot and rep ++++++++

Wow, thanks OP

The page is probably checking the referrer and if it's Google bypasses the subscription page, probably for search engine indexing purposes. If I change the User Agent for my browser to Googlebot it also sends me straight in.

Its working... Thanks

Thanks OP, worked for me. I suspect it's only a matter of time before they plug the loophole though.

Brilliant, works perfectly. Thanks OP.

thanks, h&r added

Still working, great. Ta!

Also appears that if you go straight to FT website it allows you to view one article for free, and if you keep 'clearing recent history' to delete FT cookies you can go to other articles without being blocked! ..:thumbsup:

Works fine, nice find!

Shame the viewer software crashed my pc though when I first had a go of it!

Stopped working for me! Anbody else?

Stopped working for me too; oh well, it was nice while it lasted.
