P.C. Advisor subscription

  Joe R 21:47 07 Dec 2005

I recieved a letter from IDG today, offering me a subscription to the magazine for the princely sum of £14.99, for six issues of the dvd mag' and a free Encyclopedia Brittanica 2006 Dvd.

Handy, I thought, I'll go online and order through the forum site, only to be greeted by the same offer, 'though this time at £19.99.

Will the £14.99 offer be done online, or will I have to wade through the Xmas post with my application.

Regards Joe.

I'll find out, and let you know.

Recieved an E-mail from Jim @ IDG today, with instructions on how to use the offer online.

Thank you F.E. and all at the mag.

Jim Birch (our subscription manager) told me he was on the case.

And i got a 2004 edition of a completely different encyclopaedia when I signed up for the 2005 Brittanica one! Just this month!


Wonder should I send the the thing back as it's unopened and cancel the subscription?

It sounds like there has been a mistake at our subscriptions bureau and you were sent the wrong gift. It should have been the 2005 edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica. I will arrange a replacement.

the web page stills show £19.99p instead of £14.99p
and the DVD as 2005 instead of 2006.

Will the web page be amended or was joe's quote in error?

£19.99 is the standard deal and is superb value, that is what I paid.

sunny staines,

no my quote is not in error, the promotional code is dmnov004, which states that the offer is for six issues of the Dvd edition mag, and a copy of Encyclopedia Britannica 2006.

I also tried to register for this offer last night, using the code shown, but had nowhere to input it.

I have contacted IDG by e-mail, and hopefully will get a reply soon.

I also should add, that this offer is only by direct debit.
