Am I missing something, the New Zealand distributor is charging $260 per year for a 12 month sub, while wired themselves are charging only $70 UDS (100ish NZD) for 12 months?

Just wanting to double check before I sign up directly with wired
 (first link)

$70 sub -

Nz version -

I buy Wired since its first issue. Never missed any. At some time I had a subscription - did directly with them. It's VERY CHEAP when you do directly.

I get mine direct from Wired and paid around US$70 or so last year.

I don't think you're missing anything. The NZ distributor will be missing some padding in their pockets when you go direct though!

Haha, quite a bit of padding. Looks like I've saved myself quite a few $$$. Thanks guys.
