However, the controller offer is open to existing subscribers, so there's no reason for you to miss out.
Simply phone 0344 848 2852 and quote 8Bitdo and you'll be able to continue your sub.

The deal is open to all existing subscribers as well as new ones and it's mentioned right at the bottom of the new sub in the Mega Drive issue.
The only thing is that it's sold so well we've burned through the first available batch meaning you'll need to wait for it to turn up as has been mentioned later in the thread.

Regards,
Darran
I'm on a continuous credit card renewal (every 3 months) subscription from issue 185 on. Can I get the goodies by using the mentioned link to renew the sub?
I believe so. The number above should be able to put you straight, though.

Regards,
Darran

I was a subscriber several times over, but the last renewal I didn't really have time plus had a back log of about four issues I hadn't got round to reading. I've just subscribed with the controller offer and am very pleased with myself.

Hi, I have also been a subscriber for a long time and I have a rolling direct debit subscription where I don't have to keep renewing.
Am I able to also get the controller and still keep this self renewing direct debit I have set up?

Yes. I've just received this month's issue and there's a full page advert with the details. I think it was mentioned earlier in this thread too.

Seems this offer is UK only unfortunately, I just called there and as I am from Ireland my recent 2 year renewal is no good. Disappointed with that I must say, subscriber since issue 113 :?

It's like in America they say English tea and English muffin, in England we roll with tea and muffin.

As mentioned previously I have a rolling direct debit for my subscription, I rang the number in the magazine and quoted 8Bitdo, even doing this the woman on the line didn't have a clue what I was talking about then when looked at it said I couldn't do it being a subscriber already and had to purchase another subscription. I said what would I want 2 magazines a month for when it says you can get this offer in the magazine for existing subscribers. She took my number and said I would get a call back about it, 3 weeks later and no call!!!!!

Well guess I'm cancelling my subscription then... after ringing Future about the controller and getting the run around I was informed they would send it with my next subscription renewal which was the other month and still no word of it. Zero point in having a direct debit set up if it means constantly getting the shaft so I'm cancelling it now, mark that one as a jaded, lost customer.
