    Is it just me or do these 2 sites offer the same thing for different prices?

    https://www.economistsubscriptions.c...obal/index.php

    https://www.economistsubscriptions.c...obal/index.php

    Sheesh, I've heard about price targeting but this is just ridiculous. N.B despite on of the URLs containing UK in it, both of them are Uk when you go onto the site.

    p.s. In theory, couldn't you just subscribe for 12 months and then cancel, then resubscribe? Just wondering lol

I swear I read in the undercover economist that Amazon use to try and pull this kind of [email protected] It is quite funny though

    ahahahhh, when they say new customers how can they differentiate, do they just mean like new bank cards? I want to subscribe for a year anyway lol :P Just wondering if there is another URL to the site that's even cheaper now... This shouldn't be allowed!
