Subscription competition?

hey everyone,
just got the letter in the mail saying that i only have 2 more issues left on my subscription, and i am reading down the page and they have the usual giveaways with the subscription, blah blah blah.

Then something strange occurs to me, "hey wait a second the offer says Don't miss out - Offer available until June 18th " then i look to the top of the page and the date at the top of the page says Thursday, 19th June 2008.
How the hell am i meant to enter into the competition with one day remaining it doesn't make any sense.

and what makes this worse is that the letter only arrived to me on the 24th of June so it was impossible for me to enter anyway. i must admit i did LOL at this.

just thought i would post the happenings. maybe i will be able to make it in for the next giveaway hmmmm....

That is in fact a typo - there is still time remaining, and if you go to the subs page you'll find the correct dates :)

Sorry for any confusion. I've promised to whack Atomics_son upside the head every time this is brought up.

Hi All,

I got the same thing thinking thats a bit stupid. but anyway I decided to goto the website and have a look. So I goto the site and open the page. I have a look at the T&Cs on the front page link. Seems typos are common as you scan see below from the T&Cs.

2. Subscription offer is only open to Australian residents who are new subscribers to Atomic between 11/6/08 to 8/6/08, the Promoter reserves the right to offer an alternative gift as a replacement to the original offer.

Or are they using stupid American date format.

Anyway I move forward I click on renew existing subscription. It give the subscription options. 1 year, 2 year or rolling 6 months. It asks you to enter your membership number and email then enter.

Then it takes you to the page for the delivery details. It has your membership number entered but thats it.

Then I think...What the hell do I need to subscribe for? Im on the rolling 6 months subscription. I dont need to do anything. And why send the letter out to me in the first place as im on a rolling subscription.

But this does bring up another question. Am I automatically entering the competition or not?

Thanks

Sam

PS...more T&Cs on the last page had the same problem as the first one... good to see they are consistant with their mistakes:)
