Where can I find my subscription number?

Your subscription number is ten digits long and begins with a ‘4’. It will be printed above your UK address on the paper wrap of your copies. It is also in the welcome email that you will receive from goodfood@buysubscriptions.com following the purchase of your subscription. If you do not provide an email address when purchasing a subscription, a welcome letter with the same information will be posted to you. 

Where possible, please quote your subscription number when contacting us as it will help us to locate your account and assist you.

I haven’t received my latest copy of BBC Good Food Magazine yet – what do I do?

I am due to receive an ‘Added Extra’ with my subscription and it hasn’t arrived

Our Added Extras are only available to subscribers taking out a new subscription with a UK delivery address via Direct Debit. Postage for your Added Extra is included within your subscription price. 

Please be aware that if you purchased your subscription via credit or debit card you will not receive an Added Extra. If you wish to change your subscription payment type, please contact our customer services to discuss this. 

Added Extras are sent to the address of the person paying for the subscription and posted separately from the magazine. They will arrive within 28 working days of your payment being processed.

Please contact our customer services if you need to check on the delivery of your Added Extra.
