If you phone nominet up, they can manually add you to the free 1 yr scheme before hand, its the first time this has been offered but they need to take up to be big so bending over backwards.
My account, I signed up Feb/Mar for the free 1 year and it wasnt applied, so I phoned up a few days ago and they said they can manually add me.
