Retailer:
Globe and Mail
Get a $50 amazon.ca gift card when subscribing to globeandmail.com

Fine print: https://globeandmail.force.com/helpcent ... Card-Offer

You may feel you need to maintain a subscription for 6 months. This would make this deal effectively a free 6 months of Globe and Mail with $50 amazon.ca purchase.

Subscription must continue for 24 weeks following your subscription start date = AKA you spend 50

Wouldn't it be nice if key terms are included in the post to save time?

Can they actually revoke an Amazon gift card? "The Amazon Gift Card will be emailed out within 7 days of the order being placed. "

I did miss the billing fine print. Seems you're billed monthly, even though it's priced weekly. "Billed at $7.96 on subscription start date. At the end of your trial, you will be billed the regular Digital access to The Globe and Mail rate of $6.99 per week (billed every 4 weeks at $27.96 plus applicable taxes)."

They can't revoke the Amazon GC, but the subscription is for 24 weeks... as in, even if you cancel, they will continue to charge your card until the 24 weeks is up.

There is no way they can do that. I'll revoke authorisation from my PayPal account.

Also the large print clearly says you can cancel anytime. I'm pretty sure the fine print can't legally contradict the large print.
