$17.50 1-Year Subscription to Cook's Illustrated Online Access (cooksillustrated.com)

Online access to Cook's Illustrated premium web content for only $17.50 for one year (was available for $12.50/yr up until they bumped-up the price to $17.50 on 2010-Jun-01). Regular annual website membership is $34.95. Please note, this is for online access to Cook's Illustrated only and does not include a print subscription.

(1.) Visit the following site to sign-up:
Code:
https://www.cooksillustrated.com/cds_auth/signup/default/join_step1.asp?Extcode=E8GP1FC0D
This link will bring you to a page for a "14-Day Trial Membership" (which is exactly like it is supposed to be...don't panic).

(2a.) Next, simply fill out the form completely and click "Continue."
(2b.) Note: You may see a check-box requesting that current print or web edition subscribers select/check it . . . do NOT check the box. Once again, even if you are in fact a current subscriber of the print or web edition, do not check the box titled, "Magazine Subscribers and Web Members."

(3a.) Moving on to the next web page that appears (titled, "Page 2 of 2: Enter Billing Information"), you should now be able to confirm that the discounted price is being applied. More specifically, it should say, "$17.50 Website Membership - Special 50% Savings."
(3b.) NOTE: If the price quoted is not $17.50, then you most likely have some sort of offending tracking cookie in your browser that is causing the discounted price to be invalidated. I suggest you (a) clear all cookies from your web browser, (b) delete/remove all temporary browser files/cache, then finally (c) close & re-open your browser. Once you've cleared the cookies & cache, try once again to visit the URL provided above . . . I've found this solution to work 99.9% of the time.

(4.) Once the 14-day trial has elapsed, your credit card will be charged $17.50 for the 1-year online subscription. As with virtually all magazine subscriptions, *be aware your credit card will AUTOMATICALLY RENEW at the end of the 1-year period*, unless of course you contact them to cancel before that point. Their phone number is: (800) 526-8442 and their customer service e-mail address is: webinquiry@americastestkitchen.com

Enjoy!

p.s. I do realize a similar offer was posted here last year but that discount code/link was not valid when I attempted to use it.

>>> TIP FOR RENEWALS / CURRENT SUBSCRIBERS <<<<

If you're up for renewal, a number of members have reported success by simply calling the main customer service number for Cook's Illustrated (800.526.8442) and requesting that your account be renewed for 1-year of online access for $17.50 and notify the representative that they should apply the following discount/coupon code: E8GP1FC0D . (note: after the letter "P", the number one follows, then letter "F", then letter "C", next is the number zero, and finally the letter "D"). If they want to know what the promotion code is for, simply notify them it is for one year renewal at the rate of $17.50.

Coupon worked great and got it for $12.50.

I've always enjoyed their analysis of recipes and equipment.

Great find. Thanks!

Repped.

THANK YOU! This worked for me.

I was a member for years at $19.95/year, but they bumped the renewal up to $35 in the fall so I cancelled. Glad I can enjoy their content at a reasonable price (since it's not like I visit the site every month).

Here it is 6 months later and this offer is still good! Worked like a charm and thank you for attempting to clear up the other deal's confusing post. I may get the magazine too with Bing. First I'll see how I like my new subscription to Cook's Illustrated Online. Maybe you should update this offer - it is a good one!

Next, on the second page for your payment information, simply confirm that the price quoted is $12.50; if not, you likely have an offending tracking cookie in your browser and you'll need to clear your cookies and cache before you attempt this process from scratch once again.

I didn't even notice that this post was so old. I tried it out and, lo and behold, we've got a 1 year (and 2 week) subscription to the online service for $12.50.

Thanks so much,

Any idea what price the sub will renew at after 1 year? $12.50 or the then current rate?

Wow! I just tried it and it worked for me. It's 11-16-09, fyi. Thank you so much. FYI, I used PayPal's one time use MasterCard for this so they can't try to auto renew in a year at the higher price.

All: it's 12/3/09 and my online subscribtion was due to renew tomorrow at $29.95 so I called Cook's (800-526146) and told them I would like to cancel my subscription unless they can honor the $12.50 deal which they did. At first the rep said she thought that was only with cookscountry.com but then she also found it for cooksillustrated.com.
Awesome deal; you guys saved me.
thanks.
