I forgot to mention that if you are a current subscriber you can take advantage of this offer to renew your subscription, but you'll need your subscriber number from the address label/carrier sheet that comes with the magazine. Alternatively you can call 01858 438 867

I'm sorry. I thought of you immediately I posted that. If it's any consolation - which I doubt - I would bend the rule for you if I could, but I'm afraid I can't do it.

I have just tried to take advantage of this offer. Firstly using the phone no. above they know nothing of this offer and say it must be online only. They did give me my subscriber no. though. Secondly I tried to do it online but as an existing direct debit subscriber it said everything would continue as at present. There was no way of clicking on my choice of book. It looks as though I will have to cancel my existing subscription in order to take advantage of the new one. Unless of course you tell me otherwise.

Nice one - many thanks. :-)

Like howard64 above, I went on the Internet to apply, filled everything up, changed some details that were well out of date, (Not unreasonable since it dated back to 1999!) then submitted the changes, but could go no further. There were no choices available to me. (Perhaps they are going to send all of them out!!) May be they will come back at the renewal time and offer the same choices then. Mine appears to be a rolling direct debit, which hadn't changed for years until I changed to the DVD version. I will now wait until the renewal date arrives and see what happens then.

I bit. Paid my money. Subscription has started. But, like so many subscription offers from other publishers, the free gift has yet to materialise. Nearly 2 months now...........

  tullie 22:46 01 Feb 2009

I have the same problem.

  lotvic 23:56 01 Feb 2009

I have same problem as TonyV and howard64 renewed subscription, in December I went on the Internet to apply, filled everything up - and then - nothing.

  lotvic 19:35 02 Feb 2009

Well I have emailed Sarah so hopefully I will get the free books offer (if there is any left..)
Thank you Richard (Software Editor)

I will post on here on the result I get. (fingers crossed)
