Akron Beacon Journal Promotion


Recommended Posts

I randomly checked my credit card last night and saw I was being charged $9.99/monthly for an online newspaper subscription, and it was the ABJ. I signed up for a promotion of $1 for a month back in the summer I think to read football articles. I'm not paying $9.99/month for that so I tried to cancel online, but of course they make you call. Called this morning and they offered to drop the $9.99/month down to $30/year. Still told them I wanted to cancel, then they offered me $9.99/year and I had to take that.

 

Just wanted to share to Zn.O that you can get the ABJ subscription for less than a dollar a month for a year. Just need to call and say you want to cancel a few times. I also think they run pretty generous promotions for new subscribers as well.

I pay $5.99/mo.  They tried to slide the $9.99 price increase on me a couple of months ago.  Fortunately I noticed on my credit card bill that they had charged me $9.99 instead of $5.99.  I called and they actually said I had called them - the day prior - and told them it was okay to raise it to $9.99.  I kid you not.  They lowered it back to $5.99.

You could probably get it down to $1.00 per year. They just need subscribers to sell advertising. 

If that was the case they shouldn't publish their articles online behind a paywall.
