While waiting for a train or your flight, the best thing you would do is buy a magazine and read. You might like the magazine and buy the next issue of the stand. In addition, you keep on doing it until you find out how much you have spent for that magazine. A hidden fact is that you can buy the same magazine for less than half the rate if you subscribe it from the right person.
From whom should you subscribe?
You should not subscribe from the publisher. The publisher will not give you more than 50% discount. However, if you buy from internet providers, you will find you can get each issue dearth cheap! Look for good reviews about the provider and compare the offers provided. There should be some gifts or vouchers along with the introductory offers. In addition, there would be options such as free shipping and non-auto renewal.
First advantage of a magazine subscription is the money saving. You will save a huge lot of money and you might have not even realized that while buying single issue out of the stands.
Second is getting exciting offers. You might get an offer discounting the rates for future subscriptions like get free prizes and gift cards.
Third is, you can negotiate your price for future subscription during renewal. Since the customer is the king or queen, providers are usually flexible with their offers. If you dont find them that flexible, you can always go to another provider for the same rate. Dont worry, there are plenty out there equally good.
Since you are not stuck to the publisher for your magazine you can escape from the auto renewal. Auto renewal prices are sky high and they can never be as low as introductory offers nor do they will come with any gifts. Therefore, you can get the maximum out of a subscription only if you do not renew it from the same provider.
Few words of caution
Make sure the provider is legitimate. The provider should be communicative and should have a 24 hours customer service. Web forums with real reviews from real people will give you the credentials you are looking for. Always compare. Beware of frauds.
Equipping yourself with that information, go ahead with your magazine subscriptions in UK markets and squeeze out the maximum.
