    These retail around €100 on Amazon, Irish Times giving them free with a seven moth subscription (€1+16*6 = €97). If you happened to be looking at them it could be an interesting option.

    Sounds good, I already have the basic subscription, wonder if I can get these by upgrading? I'll have a look


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,298 ✭✭✭DareGod


    That is pretty cool. Thanks! I just signed up!

    Won't be reading the paper though, might give it to a relative.

    Signed up yesterday, no mention of headphones or any confirmation email, though I bow have access to the epaper

    I'd watch Irish Times. I'd put their customer service on a par with eir when it comes to this news delivery service. Its funny how they're always going on about how bad eir are in the Conor Pope PriceWatch column, people in glasshouses.....they never mention their own shambolic treatment of customers

    I must say my experience has been the complete opposite. I have been a subscriber for some time now. The terms etc were clear (did you review them?), and I was happy with what I was getting. On one occasion, I contacted customer service. The response (in less than 24 hours) covered everything, in addition to being polite.

    Fair enough. As you say, complete opposite to my experience.

    Don't know what you're asking about terms, irrelevant.

    If no reply the eversion will suffice. Thanks OP

    After the initial 1+6 months sub, is the next billing period one month or six?


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,382 ✭✭✭✭fits


    Usually if you are already subscribing you cant avail of an offer like this unfortunately.

    ditto, i've had subs on and off over the years and never an issue.

    i'll be rejoining now!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,741 ✭✭✭ablelocks


    for anyone who had a lapsed subscription, you can still re-subscribe with the same account and get the headphones.

    (If you previously availed of the €1 for one month, you won't get that so your 6 months sub is from sign up. - edit - it's a 7 month sub at €16 a month)

    Are these noise cancelling?

    I'd need to drown out Una Mullally


  • Registered Users Posts: 664 ✭✭✭starbaby2003


    I signed up for this but didn’t get anything confirming I’d get headphones. Just wondering if that is standard or should I have gotten a confirmation email ?

    Did you sign up to the premium package?
    On the signup page it should show the headphones clearly. The basic website package doesn't include them

    Yeah I signed up for weekend. I had to call them to complete it as I got an error. I have access now but have no confirmation. If that makes sense.


  • Registered Users Posts: 154 ✭✭jhammer


    I subscribed over the phone and eventually got online access. My status says suspended but it lists the Sennheiser headphones as part of the account.


  • Registered Users Posts: 42 clashoftheash1


    Is this deal finished? Can't find it on their website.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,673 ✭✭✭✭dulpit


    Just curious if anyone has received headphones yet?

    Is it after you pay for your first month that these are sent out? My first month is nearly up. Just curious is it after the 16euro is take that they will send out the headphones?
