    Quick question - I was going to buy a magazine from Newsstand until I noticed 2 different prices?! At the top, it's shows a '1 month' price of £2.99 and then next to the actual magazines themselves, a single issue shows the price of £3.99?!

    Can someone clarify what the difference is between the 2 or which price is correct? ImageUploadedByTapatalk1342276171.005343.jpg

    I'm guessing new issues cost 2.99 and they go to 3.99 the following month when the next issue is published

    I think one month means it automatically renews every month unless you cancel it. $3.99 allows you to buy single issues without having to remember to cancel the subscription if you don't want the next month issue. Also allows you to buy back issues.

    ......I thought that would make sense however, I don't think this is correct. If the '1 Month' price of £2.99 auto renews until you cancel, that would mean that it would be cheaper to subscribe on this basis @ £2.99 every month vs the price for a 3 month sub or even a 1 year sub?!

    Hmmmm, okay, maybe somebody made a mistake. I'd go ahead and get the 1 month sub anyway, if you get charged 3.99, that's the correct price anyway, and if you get it for 2.99, then you saved $1.
