Free Pi Zero with MagPi is the older version (...or not?)

I was happy to receive today the free Pi Zero that was included with a 6-month subscription to the print edition of "MagPi". Can't really complain about free, but just in case anyone had their hopes up- the Zero that is included with the magazine is the older version, which has no camera connector. Probably that was mentioned somewhere and I wasn't paying attention.

Really, I got the v1.3 version with mine.

BTW - wrong forum.

Sorry, indeed this is the wrong forum for Pi Zero complaints. Just realized, my first issue that just came today after I subscribed last month, is Issue 40 (Christmas 2015) which had first Pi Zero already included. I thought that one was long since sold out. So, maybe the Zero v1.3 is still to come? One can hope!

I just received my 2nd issue of the MagPi magazine. No problems with the magazine itself, and this one had an "Astro-Pi" patch attached to it.

Maybe I should not complain about free gifts, but the statement "free Pi Zero with camera connector with your first issue" does not seem to be true, in my case.

Hi
I re-subscribed to Magpi with the promise of a free Raspberry Pi + cables, but the latest issue (48) has no 'goodies' attached.
Have informed Magpi and await a reply.
