Expired? Not showing the £5 deal anymore.


With these things you just email them to cancel, they take about a week to respond but it's fine and you check online it will show sub canceled. Just make sure you do this a month before receiving the last issue, so for this offer it would be the 4th issue


I just managed to place an order for 2 different subscriptions without resorting to closing the web browser and revisiting the web page. They must have sorted it out and made it easier to do

I used to love my Commodore 64, many fond memories of the games.


Code FACE2 knocks £2 off the postage. Can't use it with RETRO10, but if you're spending less than £20 it works out cheaper. Thanks OP!


That SNES book looks very interesting. Will check if TCB offers cashback. Thanks for bringing that up.


​cant remember off top of my head soz


Is there much difference in content between the hardware handbook volumes?

Seems a decent price for annual sub, works out at half price.

I prefer Games TM as well - I just read on on Readly these days, saves a fortune. Down to 116 pages now right enough, used to be a fat 180!


It's funny now, a mag "selling well (enough)" appears to be 10000-15000 copies a month. I sobbed when my beloved Amiga Power closed down, I think the last ABC was about 18000 and by that point it had been reduced to a 52 page pamphlet (albeit a still very funny one). This was 1996 right enough but the price wasn't much different compared to now (I think the last run of issues were £4.50). Just goes to show how ALL mags are a niche business these days.


Magazines aren't what they used to be and newspapers are still doing considerably well. Metro is free so regardless of how bias and crap it is, people will still pick up a copy to read.


Long live EDGE!


Interesting point, but the way that I read the article, it seems to suggest that the Sci-Fi mag was the only one that the CMA forced Future to ring-fence, so all others are fair game. A few months ago, I received a questionnaire from Imagine publishing which was asking my opinion on the merger as a subscriber - it openly asked 'if Games TM was replaced by Edge, would you continue your subscription, move to a different magazine, etc' which is why I raised the point. As I said in my first post, it's a good mag and I personally prefer it to Edge so I hope that it continues.

Tomorrow - Friday is the last day for this offer. Also, there are non-gaming mags on offer also.


Definitely worth a try though as it doesn't stop you from getting the £24.99 offer


issuu app used to be really good for free mags but all i seem to find are sampler editions, so tempted on this!


"Please note that the use of a imagine publishing promotional/voucher code not posted and approved by TopCashback, may affect your eligibility for cashback." Chances are it may pay, but don't count on it as technically this DOES use the voucher code " XMAS154E" to get the price down from the £29.99 code ( XMAS155 ) which links from their home page.

Think figured out why the link is not working smoothly, it's a deal specifically for Gadget Show Live attendees, though I got the deal without being asked for any attendance proof


This would be a great deal, but you can;t seem to change the code from 'web100'


I can't see where to input the code. :( I am viewing it on mobile so maybe I should look via me desktop?


the last decent unbiased games mag, has the upper hand over edge by not being too up itself


I've tried to edit this, the URL I paste in doesn't seem to work properly. The Promo code is EMASE1. And it's a print subscription.

Yes - its an increase if you only wanted 3 - but if you want more issues this is the cheapest way to do it :)


It's still good tho for what you get for £5.


Just watch.. Got 3 issues for a £1 a few weeks ago from imagine publishing so its actually a price increase for some of the magazines on offer

Nice one. Was about to subscribe to games(tm) the other day. Glad I waited now.


Just remember with any of these mag subs to not give them your home or mobile phone number...I have since regretted this as they periodically call you offering further 'deals' (unless of course you like being cold called with deal offers)


Thank you. :) I always cancel after the 3rd or 4th one.

I canceled after first received and never got even the second one.. :-O :-D


Cancel as soon as the money is taken out and you will still receive all 3. They will tell you when the money will be taken from your account and if you cancel the d.d the day before the money is to be taken you will receive at one mag for free!


Any one know about this? I've done these trials before but hate leaving it to the last to cancel. Cheers op


when you get the second mag can you cancel and still get the third mag sent

Save 50% on Magazine Subscriptions at Imagine Publishing - 13 issues for £24.99

Save over 50% on magazine subscriptions, very good offer to treat yourself or buy as a gift for somebody. There's lots of magazines in the offer to choose from.

Hey, don't worry about it. We all make mistakes. Have a good day.


I didn't make a mistake, I saw this and considered it to be a good deal, and I still do. I could go to a newsagent now buy the magazines at £4 each, getting them delivered early to your home for around £2 a month clearly is a good deal, it's not always this price... Usually it's more expensive on subscription, around £3 an issue.


It's not a deal. You made a mistake.


Pocket World costs £4.99 - 12 issues for £24.99 inc delivery is a pretty good deal from where I'm sitting. Hot from me.


So what's the point in commenting, some people will find the deal useful, you cleary not.

All About History is great. A lot more in-depth features than most magazines, really interesting and a good variety of different subjects / time periods in each issue so there's usually something for everyone. Can't comment on the other magazines as I haven't read more than the odd issue of them.
