Three issues of Vogue, GQ, Wired or more for £1
This offer from Conde Naste gives you three copies of their magazines for just £1. You can pick from:
- House & Garden
- Vanity Fair
- Conde Naste Traveller
- The World of Interiors
There’s also an option just to claim a free digital copy.
Free magazine subscription with Lloyds bank
You can get a year’s subscription to a number of titles if you open a Club Lloyds current account. I use this to get a year of Empire, though you might be better off with the alternative freebies such as 6 cinema tickets or 12 movie rentals
Which? Magazine: Deal stack (ended)
You can combine up to three different deals to bring down the price of an annual subscription to Which? magazine.
- 50% off via Which? (ends 30 November 2022)
- Up to £19 cashback from Quidco or TopCashback
- 35% back when you spend £35 or more via American Express (ends 29 November 2022)
Not everyone will be able to get the Amex offer (you need to check your card offers and add it to the card if it’s showing), but the other two options are there for all.
It means you’ll pay Which? £39.50 for a digital or physical copy subscription (it’s £49.50 if you want online access too), and then get £19 back from the cashback site).
If you have Amex you’ll save an extra £13.82, so the total will be £6.66 for a year. There’s a chance this last part is dependent on clicking through from the Amex app, but it wasn’t when I did this in December last year so I think it’ll be fine this time too.
Bear in mind you’ll be charged the full £79 after 12 months if you don’t cancel.
And if you’ve not used Quidco or TopCashback there’s a new welcome bonus worth up to £17 you can nab on top.
3 issues for £3: FourFourTwo, Total Film, T3 and more (expired)
You can pick up three issues of a range of magazines for £3 via the Magazines Direct January sale. Some titles are 6 issues for £6 (e.g. Woman & Home) or 6 issues for £1 (e.g. TV Times).
It’s a DIrect Debit so once after you’ve got three issues it’ll automatically move on to full price per quarter. Make sure you cancel before that happens if you don’t want to pay full price.
There’s also around 9-12% cashback from Quidco/TopCashback.
Digital magazine offers
Free digital magazines from your library
I’ve written here about how you can get a load of digital magazines via your local library.
Readly: Two-month free trial
This subscription service costs £7.99 a month. You can currently get a month for free. Or sign up for the free Lidl Plus app and you can access a two-month free trial.
Magzter: One year for £29.99 or less
Magzter is an online digital subscription where you can access more than 5,000 magazines. You can read the magazines on any iOS or Android device via the Magzter app.
This offer on Groupon gives you access for £29.99 rather than £99.99. And if you combine it with a code you might be able to save around 20%, meaning the final cost will be just under £24.
There are plenty of UK titles such as Total Film, Reader’s Digest, BBC Good Food, Marie Claire and Woman & Home, as well as international faves such as Entertainment Weekly. There’s also randomly Spurs and Everton match programmes!
You can have five separate accounts with the subscription so it’s a good option for a family.
It does auto-renew after the year so be sure to cancel it before the year is up.

My current which subscription ends soon do I need to cancel then apply for a new subscription to get the offer?
Hi Andy when you read the Amex vs Which offer t&cs there is a specific click through link via Amex you need to go through to get the Amex statement credit.
Have you tested the triple stacked discount via top cashback instead of the Amex click through and did it work?
Just checking as have been caught out by Amex small print t&cs before
I did this myself in December but of course they could have changed things since then. I don’t think you have to go via the link they list, but it’s something to consider.
Which? deal stack is genius! Got all 3.
