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

If you try to add two magazines to your basket it doesn't seem to work … If you try to add two magazines to your basket it doesn't seem to work but there is a workaround...1) click HUKD link to site using the GET DEAL button and add a magazine to the basket.2) Close browser window (I used Chrome).3) Go back to HUKD and use the GET DEAL button again. One £5 magazine will still be in your basket and you can add another.It worked for me. Got both Photoshop Creative and Digital Photographer for £10.


Just done the same and have 2 different subscriptions. Must remember to cancel the direct debits now! My children love the How It Works magazine and it's really helped to spark an interest in their science lessons at school. At this price it's a no brainer really:)

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!

Went for Retro Volume 6 and 8 as well as the SNES book... Thanks OP.


That SNES book looks very interesting. Will check if TCB offers cashback.

Thanks for bringing that up.

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.

They were in the process of being assessed by the CMA and that was only … They were in the process of being assessed by the CMA and that was only in relation to one Sci-Fi magazine. That's been sorted now and the merger has gone through. Go to the article you linked to and read it again. :pThere is a possibility that Future might shut down some titles, but only if they're not profitable to keep running. As far as I know GamesTM is still selling reasonably well, but it's difficult to tell as they don't appear to publish their circulation figures anymore as they're no longer registered with ABC.At the moment all of Imagine's titles are being marked as being published by Future but they're still being created in Bournemouth. It's when they show signs of shutting that office down that things will look shaky. Besides, even if GamesTM was shut down/merged you'd still get your subscription changed to Edge, which isn't a bad thing.

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.

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.
