    Hello!

    When I joined I purchased a 12 week countdown and got the sumner cookery book(about 7 weeks ago)! I was just wondering if this is a regular occurrence, that they give away books etc I mean or was it a one off. I was thinking I'd hate to buy another countdown in a few weeks time and find I'd just missed out on another freebie!

    It's a very rare to get a book like that!! I was shocked. Sometimes you get like a free leaflet/booklet thing. Sometimes you get nothing....

    Does this happen every 12 weeks. As in when my countdown runs out and I buy a new one will I get something or normally is it just the free weeks? X

    Your consultant wikll have a list of the upcoming offers if you ask. Mine is usually very good at saying to people "don't buy the CD now, as next week there's a free gift" :)

    Hi
    There was a free book offer around Christmas last year, but I missed out cause I had already brought a cd. I started getting 6 weeks cd, it is the same saving as a 12 but if there is an offer you have more chance of not missing it. Also check with your C if there are any up n coming offers before buying cd.

    Hey. They are the sane as the weekly rate but you but buy 5 get one free. Buy 10 get 2 free! So I got a 12 week countdown for just under £50!! Worth it as I also got a free cookbook worth another fiver!

    Think I may also go for 6 week next time in the hope of catching another offer. Will ask con when I see her next.

    our C always lets us know when another offer is coming up and the lady who takes the money also tells you if you try to buy another countdown, basically they won't take your money for the CD until the offer.

    This is my first count down as I'm a shift worker but I love it, I find it v motivating, if I've paid for it then I'm going to go whether I want to or not, if I have to work then I'll jsut go to a different group, simples x

    Oh cool! I have to switch groups soon as I'm starting a 12 week course, I don't want to be searching for a cashpoint every week!

    The only point to note if you weigh in at different groups is you can only get your countdown at the group you are registered with and you need to make sure you book holiday before buying it otherwise you will lose those weeks.
