Wonder what the magazines get out of this - most of them are more than 7.99 (certainly £1) for a months subscription on their own

How do you get this for more than one month

Heated great deal, especially if it is possible to keep it at £1/month indefinitely as op suggests....

this runs out at midnight everyone

just look at my profile photo to see it works

Logout then re apply, keep repeating. If everyone does this though I doubt the company will be in business long enough to honour it...

Still none the wiser, says it reverts back to 7.99 after a month

just re do it again and again

just do £24 for 2 years work, i payed £100 last xmas day for 12 months

Surely the subsequent months that you Sign up to for £1 will be cancelled? Usually companies have clauses in their t&c's to stop you doing this type of thing.

worth a try thowe

I've been thinking about signing up to Readly for a while but I've always been put off by the £7.99 monthly sub. My partner hates monthly subs, he calls them 'death by a thousand cuts' and it puts me off from joining a lot of these monthly paid services.
However for £1 per month it's definitely worth a try.
Worst that can happen is they cancel the extra months that have been added. If they don't you've gained very cheap access to Readly.
Thanks OP.

Thanks OP. Tried it for a year. Heat added

There is a fair to good chance they will cancel, but on the other hand though they are only getting £1pm those who have preloaded a lot of subscription (I'm 2020 and consider up to 2021) will give them a big boost of cash upfront, which they wouldn't get from normal pay by the month subscribers.

I have no idea how expensive a online magazine netflix type operation like this is to run, surely the magazines just being digital data must be massively cheaper than the old print ones and if they can still run it profitably, then there is no reason for them to pull the plug is there as they will have a lot of very happy customers who may continue their sub when the (extended) trial runs out.....

You raise some good points. Have subscribed for a few months, and will wait to see what happens.

Q1. Is anyone worried if the company goes under, or if your account gets cancelled further down the line, that you may not get your money back? (Obviously if they were to cancel people's orders over the next few months, you could get your money back through your bank or PayPal if you were having issues with getting it back from the company themselves, but I don't think that option would be available much further into the future..)

Q2. Has anyone managed to download a magazine to be stored on their device, so that it can be read anytime?

Can you get the economist

Q1. Yes that is of some concern. That said I think standard Paypal protection is up to six months, which isn't of great help to people like me who have bought into this big style and subbed up to 2021, but should certainly be enough for those just wanting to try it over the relatively short term. Credit cards usually offer greater protection though I'm not sure if that is true of very small payments like this.

Q2. Not had chance to try it yet but reviews, such as this: techradar.com/rev…iew mention that it definitely allows offline reading, though please don't use that as a guide to the titles available as it's an old review and most of the ones they mention them not having (like T3) they do have now.

Nice one, been wanting to try this for ages! Just did a month.

Thanks OP. Subbed until Jan 2018, I wanted to get the Xmas and New Years mags. Here's hoping it is honoured. If not, some poor sods got a lotta refunds to do.

@Crapweasel, you can/do download the mags to read offline, and, by the looks of it, to keep.

can definitely download to read offline. you also get access to back issues. it was a no brainer for us as our magazine subscriptions were easily over £7.99.

£3.30 Quidco for new subscribers......?!?

Thanks

Can I cancel immediately but still keep the subscription I've paid for?
Edited by: "teerex" 27th Nov 2016

Thanks - just stacked 12 months in 15 mins - keep logging out then in again. £84 saved for 15 mins work!

Many thanks.

OK, found the answer. You will keep the subscription you've paid for.

Thanks OP - have had Readly on and off since it started up but couldn't justify £10/ £8 a month on a regular basis.

Just bought the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10" which will be just right for this - always found the 8" screen on my Shield too small for magazines.

Extended my membership to April 2018 - don't want to be to greedy and my first credit card started to refuse after 12 payments, so last few came off another card...

very nice deal. a years unlimited access to mags for the whole family for £12? yes thank you sir.

Cheers for this! Have used them for a few years now. Added a year for only £12!

Thanks OP just did 2 years :-) Anyone know if you can cancel straight away or will this affect the subscription?

Gone to January 2019. Think that will do. Thanks for posting

Anyone paying with PayPal note that it sets up a recurring payment entry for each time you repeat this. God knows what would happen if you left this to rollover into a chargeable period. Suggest everyone cancels at least all but one of these in the 'My pre-approved payments' section....

Don't forget 39p cashback on Topcashback or 33p on Quidco

It didn't seem to do this for me. My £1 payments on PayPal are just down as 'payments' rather than 'pre-approved payments'.

Oh wait, no. You're right - I actually found the right section this time and found a big list of Readly pre-approved payments!

That's odd, just checked mine and they're all down as "Payments" not "Pre-approved payments"

still working after midnight. Thank you!

Can new customers get this deal too?
First time I've heard of Readly; sounds good.
