    I don't read physical newspapers; do people buy 4 days worth of a newspaper per week only, and why?

    I have subscribed to both The Age and Herald Sun for years. It all started from those cheap Uni offers. Now a decade after Uni, I'm still in the habit of subscribing. Most of the time it goes straight to the recycle bin. Every year, I tell myself not to renew, but I do anyway.:eek: :whistling:

    I finally got to the point of not buying newspapers last year when I got sick of buying it to find that there was very little of interest in it to read that and I was a bit fed up with first discarding the crappy sections in it that I wasn't going to read and then discarding the rest 1/2 hour later. Waste of paper.

    I tend to get Thursday's Age as it comes with the "Green Guide" - the TV guide, plus a few tech type articles and ads. Sometimes I don't read it, but I do usually get it if only due to habit. Every now and then might get the paper on a weekend for something to read during any 'down time' my wife or I might manage to get.

    What sold me (yes I subscribed) was partly the price (it was afterall still cheaper than my one paper a week habit), and partly the fact that it was not for the entire week but only partial - but included all the days I would normally be interested in. The last thing that tipped me over was discovering that you can put deliveries on hold through the website now - one of the big pains with home delivery (aside for playing 'hunt for the paper' in the bushes in the morning) was trying to have the thing *not* delivered when you were away. This should make it easier to manage.....

    Just got The Age renewal offer $99 for 7 days per week for 52 weeks.
    Yes, no, yes, no, yes, no, no, no, no, no!!
    Think I'll stick to NO this time. I waste more time getting the paper out of the wrapper than actually reading it.:p

    Works well (they've had it for a couple of years or so now). One thing to keep in mind is that you need to request the suspension online at least a few days before you want it to be suspended, otherwise it will say you haven't given enough lead time. (I think they have to notify the newsagent in advance - or seems that way anyway.) However, the website is more cautious (requires more lead time) and you can do things later, like about 2 days out through the call centre if it comes down to it.

    Good to know. Can cope with all that - previously you had to try to contact the newsagent yourself and that seemed to frequently lead to a frustrating and sad place...

    That's pretty good value. I'm going to sign up.
    I haven't subscribed to the SMH ever since I finished uni.
  • ninkasi2011/01/30 20:16:43
    I subscribed on Weds evening (actually, just after midnight so technically it was Thursday) and the first paper was tossed at our house on Friday. Fairly impressive, actually.

    Do they automatically renew your credit card once the subscription has expired ?

    No they don't. They do send you reminders that your subscription is expiring and give you other offers to renew, but it's not renewed automatically.

    An update. In general have been pretty happy with the deal. Paper has gone missing a couple of times, flung at random locations so it can be a game of hide & seek.... one rainy day I found it floating in the gutter.... but overall happy. So when I got the reminder in the mail I renewed a month or two back... price was slightly higher, but still significantly discounted versus the standard rate. Nice thing is that just then got the message that the subscription also now includes access to the digital download version. That means *all* the editions (Mon->Sun) via the web or iPad... nice.
