subscription gifts

Postby JonesyM » Tue May 18, 2010 12:04 pm

Is there any chance you could send out the latest subscribers free gift on the automatic renewal of a 12 month subscription?

These gifts are usually well worth having! 8)

No :lol: But, you can usually cancel and resub to get the gifts. It's a shame that loyal subscribers get the shaft a little but 'twas ever thus, most people don't bother doing the unsubscribe shuffle so they'd end up giving away a load of subs gifts they wouldn't otherwise have to. It just doesn't make any sense.

The mint sauce cover gifts were cool, cheers! It'd still be nice if he could sneak onto the sticker sheets though.

Not so much of a fan of the 'belt' with the current issue of MBUK. Seems a bit pointless as most cycling shorts can be pulled tight with the less obstrusive inner string.

Tools are always welcome eg small chain tool, allen keys, spoke wrench
Sickers are good but you can have too many.
Mini torch
Small water bottle/ hip flask
Branded rags to clean bike with
Basic skills handbook?

The current subs gift is an Altura Mayhem riding top - only if you subscribe via this link though - myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/mbk/p071

(that's a zero after the p, not an 'o')

Crap tools I'll never use just go straight in the bin, a bad tool's worse than no tool at all I reckon.

it would be good if we got a decent mini tool, something with a few allen keys, chain tool, hex wrench. also stickers that have more better aftermarket brands such as ns bikes or camelback etc

Postby nicb » Tue Jul 27, 2010 09:09 am

I received the latest issue yesterday, glasses where there but no sorren bar, can't use the glasses as need prescription ones so was looking forward to the bar but it wasn't there!!? Plus you mention eating them in the rad/bad table, did you eat mine!! :lol:

I didn't get one either. Though I wouldn't have been able to eat it anyway! The glasses are officially the most rubbish free gift ever :lol:

But the sticker sheet is the best yet, I've been mouthing off about wanting a Mint Sauce sticker for ever and here it is, so THANK YOU! Nice to see a bit more variety too, though I have no idea what the Gorillaz-looking robot thing's all about.

That said, I still want MOAR MINT SAUCE! Pr'aps the size of the Gusset sticker with more distinct colouring? If it'd been the final panel out of this month's strip only without the text, that'd have been fantastic. Ah, but that's so ungrateful.

Oh, and whoever the "feel the ride" one is- your logo fails. Sorry, whoever you are.

But anyway- best stickers ever, good poster, don't care about the rest, still a good issue.

Oh, one thing I really like about this poster, and the last one IIRC, is that because of the position of the rider you can have just half a poster and it still works. Don't know if it's intentional but it's still great.

OK - seems a lot of you subsribers didn't get a soreen bar and you should have done. I'll look into this for you!
