Free Ring SmartCharger (and six refundable trial issues) with Auto Express - no catch!

12
Found 2nd Feb 2011
The offer is six trial issues at £1.15 (refundable if you cancel) and a £29 value Ring SmartCharger to keep regardless (the kind you can leave on your battery for extended periods). No commitment if you cancel within the trial period, the trial issues are refunded and you still keep the gift. If you continue you get 49% off shop price (ie £1.15 per issue). There is usually some such offer with this and other Dennis publications but I think this gift is a particularly good one.

AVAILABLE TO EXISTING SUBSCRIBERS TOO!

I'm an existing subscriber (good weekly read) and just phoned to get the SmartCharger free - no catch! I'd recommend the magazine at this price but the gift is worth the hassle of cancelling if you don't like it. Excellent for existing subscribers as there's nothing to do but ask for your charger! I've done this with previous offers and it works; it's even set out in the magazine version of the offer:

"I am an existing subscriber! Please extend my subscription with this offer." After the trial period the subscription is £14.99 every 3 months.

The alternative for non current subscribers is:
"YES! Please start my subscription to Auto Express with 6 trial issues and send me my FREE Ring Automotive RSC1 Maintenance SmartCharger. I understand I can write to cancel my subscription during my trial period and receive a FULL REFUND. The 6 trial issues and FREE gift are mine to keep, whatever I decide."

Offer Code: P1151

Thanks. Didn't include as it seemed to have personal data (maybe only on my PC?).

£14.99 for every 13 issues - cant see any free trial issues on the link? May be it is obvious but sorry I cant seem to get it.

That link is poor (I didn't post it). The full details are set out in a full page (p48) in the latest issue. It's certainly part of the deal. They're very helpful and friendly if you phone and can confirm:

Offer Code: P1151

UPDATE: Just re-read the deal. You pay £1.15 each for the trial issues but get a full refund if you cancel. The charger is free to keep anyway. Sorry if I misled anyone. The real deal is the free charger but the magazine is a good read at £1.15 anyway (I've been a subscriber for years).

I'll change the post to reflect the above.

This is the main link to their website but it hasn't been updated with this latest offer (just out). make sure you quote P1151 or better still ask them when you call:

Looks like the offer's been pulled due to being 'abused'

Site now displays the following - "Due to abuse of this promotion, online ordering for this offer is currently suspended. If you still wish to purchase a subscription, please contact our customer service department on 0844 844 0053. " It sounds like the code wasn't meant for general distribution perhaps?

Shame though it's still showing on the link posted by wanderer (first post) and the link with the suspended notice never had this offer - maybe they're just in the process of updating it? I've always dealt with them on the 'phone anyway and they've been helpful. Give it a try?

I just rang them on local number 01795 592901. Spoke to this lad who didnt seem to know what was going on lol! I quoted reference and he said oh you get 6 issues and its £14.99 really confusing, I mentioned smart charger he goes yes you will receive after payment has been taken.

After 5 minutes of confusion, he spoke to someone else and the deal he told me was, they would charge me £14.99 on the 24th Feb, for 6 trial issues, and the remaining issues also. Then after payment has been taken I would receive charger, and if I cancel after payment has been taken but before 6th issue, I can cancel and get full refund. lol!

If anyone can understand this and see that I have it wrong please pm me thanks lol

Also while snooping around I found another deal for this subscription 6 issues for £1, and a free 26 piece toolkit.

subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/?ut…or1

This is also suspended now.
