downthetubes offers Commando subscription discount

We regularly plug DC Thomson’s Commando title, published eight times a month (delivered in two packs of four for subscribers) and offering a range of war-inspired adventure stories.

Now, downthetubes is pleased to offer an exclusive discount on a subscription to Commando, entitling readers to save 50% on the usual subs price by ordering using our special discount code.

To get your discount, follow this special link to DC Thomson’s subscription page. Then, when prompted, enter this unique code COMDT – then make your payment and your subscription will be up and running.

The price quoted of 50% discount during first three months at £11.75 then £23.50 thereafter is for UK only*. Although the offer is not restricted to UK delivery (you need a UK bank account), the price increases for overseas delivery although the offer of 50% discount over first three months is the same.

Commando editor Calum Laird tells us there’s been a significant increase in subscriptions to the title over the past year, with the title making full use of the Internet to promote new issues and  developing its own online presence – all good news for fans of the comic and those working on it!

* Please note, this saving is by Direct Debit only. First quarterly payment discounted by 50% at £11.75 and £23.50 per quarter thereafter. UK bank accounts only. One year discounted subscription rate costs £82.25. Saving of £52.15 based on the yearly cover price of £134.40.
