Telegraph year digital subscription £25 (norm £100)

£25
12
Found 26th Nov 2014
Found this on MSE so thought I'd highlight the offer. Cracking deal for those who do read the Tory Graph!

Starts Black Friday, new subscribers only
This weekend
You can get a 12-month digital subscription to The Telegraph for £25 (normally £100) when you sign up from Fri 28 Nov until 11.59pm on Mon 1 Dec. Come back from 9am on Friday when we’ll have the link.

Available to new subscribers only, it’ll give you a full year’s unlimited access to the newspaper’s website and tablet editions for iPad, Android, Kindle Fire and Windows, and the mobile apps for iPhone and Android. The Telegraph’s website is free, so this is for the people who buy the tablet editions.

You’ll also get a Subscriber Rewards Card, which includes exclusive dining, travel and retail offers.

Looks good to me, heat given - not sure why others don't think this is a good deal.

Offer is now live

Subscriber reward card gives free tea or coffee after 1400 in Debenhams Monday to Friday. Quite useful to some. Other offers like 25% off at Bella Italia, Loch Fyne, etc. and 50% off green fees at selected gold clubs.

Shame the apps are Thomas Crapper.

I was asking if ... Anyone know how/when this gets activated, ie when the 12 months runs from ?
As wanted to buy by Monday to give as Xmas present and obviously want the sub to begin after Xmas rather than now.
I'd ASSUMED in absence of any other logical idea, that it's from the first time the subscription is logged into on a device.
Had tried emailing Torygraph subs for info but no reply when I first posted here, but then got a reply...

ie: 15 mins later, JUST had a reply from them "the subscription starts immediately and cannot be postponed I'm afraid", so best to buy on Monday it seems for 11months+ at cost of £2.27/m versus normal £8.33/m ie 73% off instead of 75% is good enough bargain for a Torygraph.

Has anyone got it? I'm thinking about it but wondered what the tablet version was like. Telegraph sport coverage and the website is excellent but it's available free anyway so what's the benefit?

I have bought it. The apps are just about okay. I use them on an LG G2 and an LG GPad 8.3. You can read the reviews on itunes and google play.

The website is supposed to have an article limit, isn't it? I just view it using Firefox in private mode and it bypasses the security but the Telegraph does seem very slowly to be working out how to implement a paywall - i.e. the need to refresh pages sometimes in order to view even in private. The price of website access has doubled to £4 from £2 per month which makes this an even better deal and indicates that the Telegraph is getting more confident and likely to tighten up on free access.

I read the paper regularly, occasionally use the subscriber app and hope the other apps will improve so I'm happy to pay £25 per year. For me it is an insurance policy against the Telegraph working out how to run a paywall. Ten cups of coffee in Debenhams and you've made your money back.

Good value sub for £25.
Thing is, I prefer the Evening Standard which is free !

The reviews on the play store are shocking for the tablet app. Not being able to view in landscape mode is particularly frustrating if true

I've never come across it asking me to pay.

Thanks!

To help others:
a) As a Digital Subscriber they don't automatically post anything to you in the (real) mail. So if you want a "Subscriber Card" you have to ask them for it, as I found out today when asking about...
b) Today they sent an email about the online App for subscribers, eg for Android it's
play.google.com/sto…_GB
but when I tried to sign in there it didn't recognise my credentials. Their helpline clearly wasn't surprised by this news and will be getting my details updated 'this week'.
So if you plan to get any Subscriber benefits by card and/or App you need to shake them out of their lethargy...
I contacted them (per the App) on 0800 33 20 20 then I think it was 4 for Digital Apps

Another update : just had very welcome news from Quidco that my subscription led to £10 cashback being paid today, ie available to withdraw, so net £15 for one year's digital paper (which is being read every day on tablet and while not perfect presentation is very usable) as well as the free coffees etc = excellent value. Hoping for another Black offer later this year as watch out for any possible auto-renewal at £100.
