It's not the first time that there's been a BRM promotional tie-in with WHS this year.
99p no thanks. The issues is poor when compared again to to other competing magazines.
Happy for you to PM me with why you think that.
Thankfully the majority of others don't feel the same judging by our sales growth, but each to their own...
I take a slightly different view.
I generally find the magazine good - and an interesting read.
However, I definitely have a problem - of principle - when any magazine has this sort of promo tie-in with one specific retailer, or even a limited number of retailers.
(Of course, I should stress that I'm not referring to spare copies of old editions being sold off cheaply - whether through one shop or many of them - I'd have no problem with this.)
Quite apart from some readers (who've already bought their copy at full price) understandably feeling cheated when they see the same edition on sale elsewhere at a ridiculously low price (or with some exclusive freebie they would have liked), nonsense like this is likely to drive business away from smaller shops.
A major RTR model railway manufacturer, quite rightly, drew a lot of flak on this site (and elsewhere), when some small model shops found out that a number of items were available retail from large boxshifters (or even direct) at lower prices than they were able to get the same items wholesale. This sounds like much the same sort of thing.
