I mentioned in my post above that we got our bill for six months subscription. My bride still likes to read the paper which we only get on Wed & Sun so she called the paper and complained about the price. They cut the price in half!
They will do anything to keep subscribers because their audited circulation numbers are what determines their ad rates and ads pay the bills.
Call your paper and tell them you’re thinking about canceling and I’ll bet you get a lower rate or some free months!
