    Did you actually ask at the counter/staff about free gift which goes with the magazine?

    Or you just checked the magazine package on the shelf ?

    Sometimes they keep 'gifts' behind the counter to stop 'people' stealing them / ripping the package etc.

    yes checked with the staff , the girl in WH smith's did not even know there should be a gift and went and asked her manager , asked in Tesco's as well and they said they are having the problem more and more :x

    why the hell would anyone shoplift a magazine free gift, when they could steal something of actual value from the shop .... normally free gifts on magazines are free for a reason

    what was the gift ? .. when ever I look its always a hideous pair of yellow le tour socks that don't fit properly and change shape after the first wash

    it was a strap to attach things to your bike, did not need it or want it but could have been handy , never mind

    oh don't get me wrong, if it was a free gift I would still have wanted it ... and wouldn't have bought the magazine if it was meant to have it, but it was missing.

    I was just trying to justify the mindset of a person that would steal a magazine free gift when they could go steal something valuable in the shop instead
