220 Subscription Renewal

Check this out, 220 have just sent me a renewal letter through the post, promising me a lovely set of Aqua Sphere Goggles if I renew my magazine membership. The only problem is that I am still waiting for my Free Gift from last year. So let me think..mmmmmmm...na I don't think so.

    I've given up renewing subscription to magazines because you always get a far better deal by cancelling your subscription and then signing up as a newcomer. Also I now ALWAYS pay by cheque as if you pay bt DD they will not stop and YOU have to go to your bank to get it all stopped

    Really depends how much you get from the mag. Although they dangle the carrot of a free gift, its also a cheaper deal and no need to go to newsagent. I personally think its a good read. However it might become a bit repetetive after a year or two, unless techniques etc change dramatically in that time.

    I dont know about the rest of you, but i found that since joining a club, half the magazine is not worth reading i.e. training tips, swimming technique tips etc. Thats what a coach is for.

    I do enjoy the product reviews, race reports and interviews. So to echo Hound Dog it does depend on what you get out of it.

    Just reading thismag, looking at those pics makes you want to grab your bikeor running shoes and go out forsome action. It's a great motivator, great revieuws on new gear, new or different techniques,....

    Oh, by the way, 220 didn't pay me towrite this[:D].

    No,really, I'm satisfied with it. I don't get gifts or whatever, since i'm from abroad, I need to pay more than you guys to get it, but I still think it's a good mag(and one of the few thats available in our sports).
