Annoyingly, the deadline to use your Gift of 4 codes was on 28 November. But as a special treat, we’ve extended it.
All you have to do to claim your complimentary guest membership is sign up below and enter your Gift of 4 code.
Your complimentary membership includes all this for a year
10 tickets to ThinkIns, the engine of open journalism. Tortoise members participate in open news conferences, live and unscripted in our newsroom.
The news not as it happens, but when it’s ready. In the app, in your inbox and online.
Tortoise quarterly is a short book of long reads. Modern fables, true tales, old stories re-examined, new ones revealed.
A taste of our journalism
We are focused on the Big Five forces that are shaping our lives, our societies, our world.
A taste of what you can expect from our digital ThinkIns
As a member, you can come to as many of these as you like
What our members are saying
I can already highly recommend @Tortoise. It’s the news equivalent of dipping your head in a cool, glacier-fresh stream on a scorching-hot day.
Went to my first @Tortoise ThinkIn last night on gender. A really fun eve – full of lively comment & a totally inclusive atmosphere. Not at all like a traditional panel event.
Where can I find my code?
The member who shared this page with you has a unique code in the “My Tortoise” section of the app under “My Membership”. If they can’t find it, let us know!
You’ll get one year’s Tortoise membership, giving you access to all of Tortoise’s digital journalism, as well as ten ThinkIn tickets for the year and the Tortoise Quarterly as an ebook.
How long do I have to redeem my code?
You’ll have until Thursday 28 November to redeem your complimentary code. If you still haven’t activated your membership after this date, we will donate it to the Tortoise Network. The Network is our initiative that ensures Tortoise membership is accessible and affordable to the people who are hardest for us to reach but whose voices we most need to hear.
When will my Gift of 4 membership run out?
Your membership will last one year from the point of activation.
If the person who’s referred me doesn’t renew, what happens to my membership?
Unfortunately, if the member who referred you cancels their membership, your membership will also be brought to an end. Feel free to persuade them to renew using any means necessary.
As a Gift of 4 Member, can I cancel my membership part way through?
Yes, you can choose to cancel your membership at any time and this will not affect the person who has referred you.
