"Amiga Book" for free (Electronic Edition)?

So I logged into Zinio using Facebook a few days back in an attempt to pay for an electronic copy of the recent "Amiga Book. I registered via the Facebook integration but I kept getting "connection timed out" trying to pay via Paypal and gave up in disgust after swearing at the site never to return.

And then a day or two back they emailed a promo code worth 8 quid which I then used to pay for it last night. Of course the Zinio software sucks and glossy hard copy would be better (which I couldn't find in Central London) but still better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick!

Maybe I was just lucky but it's probably worth a try for others...

Everyone (ok, the vast majority) use PayPal. I have certainly used it for around 7 years or more. It's much easier and safer than letting everyone know your credit/debit card details (or bank details), and when you get a new card you only need to update PayPal, instead of every site you buy items from online.

I have never heard of Zinio.
