    They must be so desperate now to fool their backers with boosted subscriber numbers by offering a promo like this.

    I find it a refreshing read, especially Douglas Murray, as opposed to the usual left dominated press. (edited)

    As I remember, you can use the John Lewis gift card in Waitrose anyway.

    Easy, all online. I got a free bottle of Champagne at Christmas and bin the copies when they arrive.

    The Telegraph offered a digital yearly "International Subscription" for €29 a year last year in March. It renews automatically at same price, unless advised otherwise ahead of the renewal.

    Go on your EU VPN, put in your regular UK billing address including County/City, then put a EU country. Worked for me. Maybe lucky.
    Great business, economics and gardening sections, can skip 75% of politics and 100% of culture war.

    Thanks OP.

    Re-subscribed with payment through PayPal, then immediately cancelled the automatic payment in case I forget to cancel the sub.

    The Telegraph offer doesn't work with the link they e-mailed:

    Sorry just to check so I understand, you make the payment of £12 to subscribe, you then receive the 20 quid giftcard presumably via email, and then you can cancel the subscription in order to get back the 12 squid and still keep the giftcard?

    Is this offer open to previous customers?
