The New York Times: 12 Week Digital Subscription Only 99¢

Posted by on March 20, 2015 at 3:00 PM

The New York Times: 12 Week Digital Subscription Only 99¢

The New York Times is an American newspaper that you have probably heard of. They are one of the foremost papers in the USA, but the content is often relevant to Canadians as well. Right now, the New York Times is offer a 12-week digital subscription for just 99¢.

You can choose from any of the three available New York Times subscription levels:

NYTimes.com + Smartphone Apps

This is the level you want to pick for unlimited access to the New York Times website and the smart phone app. If you primarily use your cell phone to read news, then choose this subscription. Regularly, the subscription retails for $3.75 per week.

NYTimes.com + Tablet Apps

Choose this level for unlimited access to the New York Times website and the tablet app. My partner primarily uses his tablet for news, as the screen is larger. I would suggest he buys this subscription level. Regularly, the subscription retails for $5 per week.

All Digital Access

Cannot decide which device you will read the news on more? Pick up the All Digital Access pass for unlimited access to the New York Times website, the tablet apps, and the smart phone apps. This package is a combination of the two packages above it. Regularly, this subscription retails for $8.75 per week.

This offer is for new subscribers only. As these are subscriptions, the subscription will automatically switch to the full price after the 12 promotional weeks are up. However, you may cancel anytime during the promotional 99¢ period – you will not be billed anything more. If you are going to cancel, I suggest waiting till your 11th or 12th week to do so. You might as well take advantage of the nearly free content for as long as possible.

I think the New York Times is a good source for information on the world. I recently read a New York Times article about Monica Lewinsky using her notoriety to fight cyber bullying. She did a TED Talk on the subject in Vancouver.

While many New York Times articles are available for the public, some areas are for members only. To access those areas you will need one of the memberships above. Even if you are uncertain if you will use all the member benefits, 99¢ is a cheap price to try them out.

All prices are in USD.

Globe and Mail Canada: 45% Off Print Subscription for 6 Months

Posted by on September 16, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Globe and Mail Canada: 45% Off Print Subscription for 6 Months

If you have previously subscribed to the Globe and Mail, come back and receive 45% off your print subscription for the first six months.

This offer is only available to former subscribers. If the coupon does not auto-apply, as it should through the above link, then use promo code H49NFRMR to receive this offer.

You will receive 45% off a daily subscription, and ‘up to 45% off’ other types of subscriptions. This brings your weekly cost down to just $6.91 (depending upon subscription). This offer is also only valid through with a pre-authorized monthly payment in place. The monthly fees will increase to regular after the six months unless you cancel.

As an added bonus, daily paper subscriptions will receive Globe Unlimited for free. That is Monday – Friday or Monday – Saturday subscribers. Those who subscribe to Friday – Saturday and Saturday only Globe and Mail print newspapers are eligible to receive Globe Unlimited for $0.99 for their first month and then $4.99 each month after. The daily subscribers are certainly getting the better deal here.

There is a bonus offer you will gain access to in most areas. Receive 50% off the regular home delivery rate of The New York Times for the first three months. The print subscription includes unlimited access to NYTimes.com and the tablet and smartphone apps as well. You can sign up for this when you choose your Globe and Mail subscription level.

In my area, these are the prices for the first six-months of delivery of the Globe & Mail:

  • Monday-Saturday Delivery - $29.99 + 1.50 GST = $31.49 per month
  • Monday-Friday Delivery  – $25.49 + 1.27 GST = $26.76 per month
  • Friday-Saturday Delivery – $15.08 + 0.75 GST = $15.83 per month
  • Saturday Delivery – $11.25 + 0.56 GST = $11.81 per month

These prices may differ by province but I am not sure!

I had bought my husband a Globe and Mail subscription a few years ago because he is such a news hound. While he gets most of his news online now, there is nothing like reading an actual paper. It is like the difference between eBooks and physical books: sometimes classic is just better. When we are in a building that would provide access for a newspaper boy to drop off a paper, I am going to buy him another subscription. His Saturday mornings will once again start to the sound of a rustling paper.

What newspapers do you read Moosers? Is The Globe and Mail on your list?

The Globe and Mail: 50% off Globe Unlimited for 6 Months

The Globe and Mail: 50% off Globe Unlimited for 6 Months

There is a fantastic deal happening right now for The Globe and Mail Canada.  Save 50% for the first six months of a Globe and Mail ‘Globe Unlimited’ subscription.

The first six months of your subscription will cost you just $9.99 per month. After that, the rate will automatically increase to $19.99 per month, which is the regular subscription rate. These prices do not include taxes, which varies depending on your province. This offer appears to be available to new and current Globe and Mail subscribers.

The Globe Unlimited subscription will include:

  • Availability to all platforms (computer, smartphone & tablets)
  • Full access to Globeandmail.com
  • The Globe dashboard tool
  • Access to exclusive subscriber loyalty events, shows, concerts and pre-sale tickets (British Columbia and Ontario only)

My husband used to get The Globe and Mail delivered to our house every Saturday and while I read the Style section he would raid the Sports, Business, Travel, and other sections he enjoyed. While we no longer get the newspaper he likes to still keep track of the news online. I think the ‘Globe Unlimited’ subscription would make an excellent gift for him so that he can fully access all that this newspaper has to digitally offer.

TheStar.com: 99 Cents for the First Month of Digital Access + A Bunch of Free Perks

Posted by on October 28, 2013 at 9:00 PM

TheStar.com: 99 Cents for the First Month of Digital Access + A Bunch of Free Perks

Stop wasting paper and get your news online with a month of TheStar.com for 99 cents!

This deal is aimed, I think, at people who just don’t have time to read though a whole newspaper throughout the week. That’s probably most of us. So instead of getting a weekly newspaper you can read it on TheStar.com on your computer, tablet or phone. On top of that, if you are in the GTA, you can get the Saturday paper version delivered to your house for free. That gives you the weekend to read it. With this deal you also get seven free days of The Star Replica, which is the paper version in digital form. On top of all that, you get access to TheStar.com for two other people in your family.

Listen, I know that newspapers are dying and that a paywall is a filthy, dirty, terrible thing to put on anyone but this is just how it is for now. Eventually they’ll smarten up and stop all this foolishness but until then if you want to read TheStar, this is the most cost effective way to do it.

After the first month, the price goes up to $9.99/month. I feel like there should be a minimum monthly commitment, like you need to sign up for six months to get the first month at 90% off but I can’t see that anywhere so enjoy your first month for 99 cents and cancel if you don’t want it!

Wag Jag Canada: $26 For 1 Year Subscription Of eReads

For $26, you can get a one-year subscription of News eReads from Star Dispatches, a $52 value.

Access new and breaking news stories on your tablet, eReader or computer by renowned Toronto Star journalists. Once a week, you’ll get a deep news store, which could be a variety of fascinating genres. You’ll also have unlimited access to the Star Dispatches library, which has over 30 titles to choose from. Because this service is so unique, it has won awards from the Online Media Awards for innovation.

As I’ve said before, I am an avid reader, and I love reading in-depth news stories. I don’t have the time or the will to read a newspaper (or any other format of daily news), so I love getting the entire scoop in one easy read. This subscription totally interests me, especially at half the price. Normally you’d pay $1 a week, but now you are paying only $0.50 a week, which is pretty sweet.

You can purchase one subscription per WagJag account, and your subscription starts within five days of deal closing.
