    Dear Derek Cohen,

    As a preferred subscriber, you're entitled to save an amazing 0% off the cover price, and never worry about missing an issue.

    I don’t know, it seems pretty succinct to me.��

    I've often wondered why DC subscribes to any WW rag.

    His self-published website is more informative, better photographed and useful than 2/3 of the standard rate.

    No adverts for tools that require a crane for delivery, either.

    Derek, I hope you took them up on their VERY generous offer......

    [TD]Dear Derek Cohen,

    save an amazing 0% off the cover price,
    Wait a couple of days and they will make you a better offer, they always do or miss one issue and then subscribe as a new subscription for half price.

    Hmmm, I can get 10% off the cover price, every time I go into a BORG....plus I get to read/glance through the "book" to see IF I would want to even buy that issue....I could, though, just buy the magazine, then post on here how "bad" it is...or, just set it back in the rack, and save 100% of the cover price....

    Hey Derek,

    I think you are a preferred customer. When my last WW magazine subscription expired they never even made me an offer of any kind. That must be what they meant by being a "preferred customer," obviously I must have not been preferred. (I guess paying for the subscription must not have been enough to make me "preferred.")

    Companies only seem to offer savings deals to new customers. Current customers never get the same benefits. If you quit them they will come crawling back with special offers. Thats what a bunch of MBAs come up with.
