Free 6 months of the Financial Times (YMMV)

Deal Link:
Price:
Free
Expiry:
April 30, 2019
Retailer:
Google Pay
Google Pay is offering free 6 months subscription of the Financial Times. After 6 months it’s $44.50 every month. You can cancel right away and still enjoy the free subscription for 6 months. For cancellation, go to google play page (https://play.google.com/store/account/subscriptions). From there you can cancel the FT trial. You'll get an email confirmation of the cancellation from Google and it will show up on the Google Pay subscriptions page under "Cancelled" (thanks to @candiantired). Check the updates at the bottom of this post.

I don't know how much it helps everyone, but a free is FREE.
This could be YMMV.

*With this promotional offer, you will receive a 6-month promotional trial, then be automatically enrolled onto a rolling monthly contract unless you cancel during your trial period. This promotion is limited to Google Pay users in the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada (excluding Quebec) who are not existing subscribers to the Financial Times. This promotion is non-transferable. You can cancel at any time at no cost during your 6-month trial through your Google Account page. Once your paid subscription begins, any cancellation notice will take effect at the end of the same month and previously paid amounts are not refundable. Offer valid through April 30, 2019. Financial Times Terms & Conditions apply.

Update 1: Few RFDers residing Quebec were able to avail this. So, it’s worth a shot!
Update 2: Some RFDers are having problem to access the premium articles from March 26th morning, will update more on this.
Update 3: Please check your gmail, there should be 6 emails with the subject 'Your Financial Times subscription is ready to use'
Update 4: Seems like you can only access the premium contents through the FT app
Update 5: The problem with desktop access has been fixed now. Enjoy!

Use Google to your advantage, not only for a free subscription but also a free reminder (using Google Calendar) set a day or two before the trial ends so you can cancel before the auto-renew kicks in.

Simple. Easy. Free. All Google.

The email titled “Google Pay perk: read the Financial Times for 6 months, on us”

Yeah, seems like QC is excluded.
