As per title: 12 issues of the Economist for £1 (new subscribers only)

You can cancel at any time, so just make sure you do so after they take the £1 but before they take the next installment. Even if your forget, they'll refund you for any issues you haven't received when you do cancel.

They have the usual offer of 12 issues for £12 through their links, but I received this link in an e-mail from them yesterday. It isn't customer specific.

Offer ends 4 November so get in quick.

Cracking deal!

Whats the minimum term? Could you cancel after the 12 months? If so great deal!

12 issues = 12 weeks. After they take your pound, cancel your DD with your bank and it's done. No minimum term.

Great Deal, just got myself student edition

Exclusive offer. 12 issues for £1.
Offer closes October 15th 2009

Great deal. To those so interested in canceling the direct debit after- print is dying. For quality, intellectual writing you should be prepared to pay £2.41. If you really can't afford it then fine, but if you would rather buy one more pint a week instead of this, then good luck to you. They must be running this deal at a loss so you are actually contributing to their downfall.

*Steps down off the proverbial soap box*

Great find!

Well I'm sure we'll all consider that but if a magazine named 'The Economist' goes under because they offered a promotion at a massive loss to themselves then maybe they don't deserve to keep printing as they would obviously then be pretty [email protected] at economics!!!

But where is the link for £1 deal?

Genius

You'll probably find that if you cancel your DD after, say 3 weeks, you wont receive the full 12 issues. So, just mark a note in your diary and if you dont wish to continue, just cancel DD after week 11/12.

Once they've taken your pound, they will send you 12 issues. If you cancel after 3 weeks, they will have taken your pound, and they'll only find out that you've cancelled when they attempt to take your next subscription payment, just before issue 13. Either way, you'll have paid for your 12 issues once you've paid that £1 so they'll send you 12 issues.

How would they know you have cancelled? Don't they find out you have cancelled when they try to take the payment for the next issues?

I always email to say that I have cancelled, and I have used offers like this many times. I have never not received the magazine I paid for in the first payment.

They already have other subscribers (including companies etc) who are more than willing to pay full price & that revenue is paying for the research efforts of their writers. From their perspective this 1 pound deal translates to a marginal cost of extra paper to print & postage - but with the potential of netting more subscribers who may pay full price in the future. I wouldn't say its a massive loss to them, since most of us would not have subscribed initially at full price if its not for the deal.

Economics at work as usual - concept of marginal cost & price discrimination. :-D

And hot deal - signed up as soon as I saw it.

or in the word of Keynes "Its the shizzle ma nizzle"

FYI while you're all waiting for the first issue to arrive, this weeks edition is only £2 instead of £4, so I got that too!

Added to the red hot!

You could be right....just maybe getting paranoid as thought RT did this to me, been filling my boots with their deals for ages. Dont want to be in limbo if they stop mid subscription

when do we need to cancel, after the 12th issue has been delivered? When is the next issue coming out/be delivered by?

You can cancel at any time, as you've already paid the amount of the next 12 issues (i.e. £1)

hmm ok so do i just need to go to the economist settings online and click 'suspend subscription' or is it more complicated than that. TIA!

Just cancel your direct debit and give them a ring to cancel.
