Got this today as part of the 5 for £5. If you hoped it would be different from the usual Official Magazine, then I'm sorry to disappoint. This is merely a name change. Nothing else has changed. No new layout, writers, content etc. It's just the same mag. I only get it because there is now no decent physical games mag available. Miss GAMESTM and even GamesMaster, and obviously miss the golden period of the 90s, when there was a plethora of mags to choose from. But yeah, anyone expecting any different... don't. Same old mag sadly.
I did. When I browsed to the website yesterday morning the deal showed the same for all gaming magazines. Weird thing is I checked on my laptop later and it had changed to £5 for 3 issues, but the cookies or something on my PC were still showing them all as 5 for £5 and I managed to confirm the purchase on that basis. Kinda wish I had thrown PC Gamer on there too to complete the set xD.
Thanks for posting this deal, I've subscribed for the 5 issues for £5. I'm interested to see what this magazine will have compared to what we can find on the usual online gaming sites - VGC, IGN, etc. Edit: Quidco = £0.48 cashback as long as it tracks (y)
Did you sub to the others for the same price as this 5 quid for 5 issues?
Easy to be the best-selling when you're the last one left on the market.

Ordered Edge, Computer Music & T3 - heat & thanks (highfive)
That never worked for me unfortunately, but I did find the right code to apply to get the deal. The code is SP03
Couldn't find it on the link either as it defaulted to a different code, so if that happens to you just do this workaround. Google the name of the mag you want plus "5 for £5" and the offer will pop up as the lead ad link. Go into the site through that and it'll work. Did this for Retro Gamer and it also showed Edge on the site as an item I might be interested in, so I could add both through just one link. Hope this helps.
Not showing for me at all unfortunately, even in an incognito window. I think it's trying to apply another subscriptions promo (code BP12) which might be changing the prices for me. I can see the banner for the sale, just not the prices.
Thank you for posting; your thread has been selected for the Highlights page (highfive)

Digital Photographer/T3 Magazine Subscription £5 for 5 issues print and digital @ Magazines Direct£5 Free P&P Free
I am asking because it doesn't say anything about earbud other than on the offer page, I can't see it anywhere on the checkout page, is that normal? Thanks!
Seems to be, my earbuds were delivered around 10 days after taking out the subscription. Happy days :-)
Is this deal still running??
Great deal hi-five (highfive) ..I’ll grab my coat.
Well there are HDMI versions to consider if you're going high end, and cable insulation/shielding helps with interference too. CAble quality might determin the lifetime of the cable as well, especially if you're running one inside a wall for example and need to make sure it'll last.

PlayStation Official Magazine - 3 issues for £3 @ Magazines Direct£3£1580% off Free P&P Free
Where are you trying to use the code? The correct place is in the message that appears in the site header.
This is still not working for me and still saying invalid code
Can also recommend readly app, you get a free trial with that and ps magazine is on there.
Is this working yet I have tryed both codes listed above and tried all the links and it still shows full price and invalid code
Thanks - I've got it to go through after a few attempts, and it also suggest the offer for PlayStation Official Magazine and Retro Gamer in the process. Shame that PC Gamer doesn't seem to be included, though!

I send the thread to a moderator asking if the merchant can be banned. Given everyone's experience being scammed I don't think it's fair to give them the advertisement. And it will save headaches for people in the future.
Just to add more info. Had several emails that saying that I had been sent gift, didn't qualify, free magazine as compensation, free extra months of subscription, and not being able to get refund etc. I eventually got the Gaming Icons mag AND a refund after badgering them. Seems to be a mix of automated and actual replies depending on the correspondent. Hopefully you will get in contact with someone decent and get a refund like I did.
would also appreciate this. I was told the same, and offered an alternative gift which they said was on the way. Then when I asked for an update they sent a rather rude email saying that I never qualified for the gift and that they already told me I wouldn’t get one (this was the first email I got saying I didn’t qualify). I emailed back asking for a refund as I never got the first and was unable to even access the subscription after a few weeks and they never responded.
Does anyone have a screenshot that the digital subscription came with the controller? I've been told for 6 months that it was on the way and to keep waiting. Now they are saying the digital subscriptions don't include the free gift.
Yeah the app didn’t work for me for ages. I had to call to get them to reset my subscription so I could use it (that took ages). They offered me an alternative controller, but it’s been two weeks since they last emailed me so I’m not hopeful.
DD was cancelled but magazines still arriving. No further charges as of yet and I have contacted customer services to cancel by writing. The website was a complete joke and did not even show 1 of my active subscriptions.
I just cancel my DD for any mag subs and have never had any issues whatsoever
What do you mean? Did you not just cancel the direct debit to stop them taking any more money??
This was a total con. Impossible to cancel magazones even after direct debit.
After I put in my Direct Debit details it took me to an Uber Eats promotion page
