Subscription confirmation

Thu Dec 17, 2015 9:57 pm

Yesterday, I ordered a three month MagPi subscription but there hasn't been a confirmation email yet. How long does that usually take?

btw I'm really looking forward to finally getting my hands on a Pi. :D

I did the subscription by phone a few weeks ago. Give them a bell.

I ordered a subscription on the 7 Dec and got an email confirmation immediately. Maybe you made an error inputting your email address.

I got my issue 40, free Pi Zero and mini leads last Saturday. I did my subscription the beginning of December. But I subscribed by phone.

Ummm, I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings but I think you might have missed your chance of getting issue 40 before Christmas:

This is from selectps.com, they print or distribute MagPi.

" Due to high demand for Issue 40, orders are now being processed. Any orders received before December 14th will be despatched by December 18th and will arrive in time for Christmas. Orders received later than December 13th will most likely not be received until after Christmas."

Ordered my sub 28 Nov. so I should get it today or tomorrow.
In the meantime Pimoroni delivered my first Zero a couple of days ago. :D

Thank you all for the helpful replies. I'm not bothered by missing the Christmas cutoff but I did send a followup email re: my order - still waiting for a reply.

Good news, everybody! My order actually did go through - at least, if my credit card statement is anything to go by.

Thanks again for the helpful feedback.

I think MagPi 41 could be out next week. Hopefully they may send you your issue 40, 41, Pi Zero and cables altogether.
