UK Magazine Trial Subscriptions

I started a blog ( on blogger recently dedicated in listing trial subscription offers that often has free gifts with it. We as consumers should take advantage of such offers.

This was my first post on that blog explaining its purpose:

Magazine publishers use several ways to promote their magazine to increase their subscription base. They often offer trial subscriptions with free gifts in hopes that the subscribers would try out their magazine and stay with them. We as smart consumers can take advantage of such offers by signing up and then cancelling it before the next payment is due. As a result, we would receive a far more valuable free gift than our investment plus the magazine all delivered for free to our doorsteps. On the other hand, if you like the magazine, you can continue to subscribe it at cheaper than newsagent rates.

In simpler terms:

Publisher Aim

- To get more customers to stay hooked up with their magazine by hoping that they do not cancel their direct debit or subscription.
- To get a wider readership, distribution and higher statistics for their company to charge higher rates to advertisers.

Our Aim

- To grab free gifts from every trial subscription there is and uses it personally or as gifts and cancelling it at the end of the trial period.
- Repeating the above steps over and over again and enjoy it.

What Will This Blog Do?

We aim to teach you the tricks of the trade with some tips and search the web for the latest subscription offers there is and list them here. We will put up instructions on what you will need to subscribe and how to cancel your subscriptions.

Well, as a bonus for reading my blog, here are a few links to fantastic offers that I will soon be posting on that blog:

3 issues of Men’s Fitness for £1

6 Issues of Auto Express for £1


You may cancel your subscription and keep the free gift which usually worths more than what you have invested. Most of my listed offers can be cancelled online after your receiving your last issue using the username and password assigned to you after your initial registration. The good thing about being able to cancel online is that you do not need to waste your phone bill by being put on hold for ages waiting to speak to an operator or postage costs on sending a letter that they may deny receiving. If you do like the magazines, you will enjoy subscribing it at a much lower news agent rates.

I will indeed be posting more offers in the future but this is what I intend to list for the moment.
