Being new to the pi I got a 3 issue of magpi from my local smiths and seeing the subscription price saving money by subscribing and a free zero can't go wrong for that price and learning so much from the magazine too.

I've just received by Magpi #46 with the included PiZero bundle (PiZero v1.3,HDMI adapter and USB adapter but no Camera Module adapter cable) - the bundle was what encouraged me to take out a subscription
Have you and others received a 4th packet with your subscription containing a Camera adapter cable or have I just got the wrong end of the stick?

I will hopefully be getting mine at end of month beginning of next as started subscription with number #47 as purchased #46 on shop will have to keep you posted when arrives, have you considered contacting them regarding this as may have just been a genuine shipping error.

My bad - red face time! Not a shipping error - an alechk error. The connector was firmly pinched close to the magazine binding.

Unfortunately, I have run into problems with these free PiZero with a subscription from IMS.
The first time, the offer was a free original PiZero with a 1-year subscription. Paid for the subscription, got the invoice showing the free PiZero, but the package was empty. A call to complain got me an explanation about "some packaging problems" but I never got the PiZero.

This week, another e-mail from IMS offered the 3 items mentioned above with a subscription renewal. Doing the renewal from their web site using the link in the offer email, never showed the 3 free items in the offer. So I did not hit submit for the order.

IMS appears to be a distant "third party" with respect to offers of Rasberry Pi hardware. Beware.
