Issue 217 & Mario Freebie! Subscribers lost out!

Post by traviswalton » Sat May 08, 2021 1:06 pm

Hi, Regarding issue 217, I just seen it in Tescos with a FREE magazine attached to it!!! How come subscribers didn't get the 'Nintendo Archives' magazine???? Im a die hard collector of your magazines and have been subscribing for many years - it does not seem fair that if you DONT subscribe, you get BETTER offers and freebies. :(

As posted in another thread complaining about this, Future don't like or respect people that support their mags by subscribing. As far as they are concerned, it looks like we will no longer receive freebies in the future. scandalous. :evil:

If it turns out to be true, I'd say they will be losing plenty of subscribers (including me) and I wont be buying from a shop.

Looks like its true, I think I may unsubscribe soon and just catch the vibe on YouTube as there are many channels that devote to Retro gaming...and there free!

As I've already mentioned elsewhere this newsstand book was a one-off.
We're working on a new 32-page supplement now which is going to be given out to all readers and there will be a calendar later in the year as well. I'd imagine that wording is in place, exactly for specials like this and not because there's no interest in giving subscribers extras.
