Frequently asked questions
With a subscription you can look forward to receiving your favourite magazine through your door every month saving you the time and trouble of going to the shops to buy a copy. If you take advantage of one of our special discount offers a subscription may also save you money as compared with the normal magazine cover price.
You can access a description of the magazine you are interested in by clicking on the magazine title, cover or “ Info” link, or, where the chosen magazine has a dedicated web site, by visiting that site and accessing the information available there.
Prices displayed include delivery costs and taxes (where applicable). Any discounts to the normal issue cover price will also be explained. If you pay for your subscription using any non-sterling currency the price you pay will be dependant on the exchange rate of your credit card company and may fluctuate.
We run a variety of special offers and welcome gifts throughout the year, these are used as incentives to attract new readers to the convenience of subscribing. Please be assured that we do value our loyal subscribers and we always try to offer them a discount off the full rate when they renew.
UK customers have the option to subscribe by Direct Debit. Depending on the magazine, your payments will be spread into easy, manageable 3, 6 or 12 monthly payments. As Direct Debit is a continuous payment method your subscription will never expire unless you decide you want to stop, eliminating the need for renewal notices. We then pass these savings back to you enabling a further discount, and it’s greener as there is less paper and so better for the environment. You are also fully protected by the Direct Debit guarantee.

We are currently operating a normal service with deliveries, especially within the UK, largely unaffected. However, as the situation is fast-changing and difficult to predict, we have made digital editions of our magazines available for existing print subscribers free of charge on a temporary basis. To access your digital edition - available across all devices - please login to your account at mymagazine.co.uk where you will be able to redeem your unique access code.
Current known issues:
TV Times and TV&Satellite Week will now arrive with you on a Wednesday or Thursday, as opposed to the Tuesday, so still in good time for the weekend viewing information. We hope in the near future deliveries will revert back to normal.
Amateur Gardening, Woman and Woman's Own will now be delivered just before, or on the 'On-Sale' date which is Tuesday. We have been advised by Royal Mail that, due to issues surrounding the Coronavirus, they will no longer be delivering magazines and letters on a Saturday. We do understand this is a source of inconvenience and can only apologise.
