How the offer works:

When you purchase a 12-month rolling subscription to Prospect you will pay by direct debit (available in the UK only) or by continuous credit/debit card payment.

If you choose the outcome of the referendum correctly, we will send you a cheque within 28 working days of the referendum to refund your first year’s subscription cost in its entirety. We will send an email to you when your cheque has been posted.

After receiving your 12th issue, your subscription will renew automatically every 12 months at the same price you pay today. If the price changes, we will notify you in advance of your next payment being taken. You are free to cancel at any time by notifying us and are always protected by our money-back guarantee.

We can only accept one subscription per household. Excludes Northern Ireland. Offer closes midnight Tuesday 17th May and is subject to the full terms and conditions below.

Please remember you are voting for what you think will happen, not what you want to happen.
