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!
