Wall Street Journal New Year's Deal

Post by Artful Dodger »

I picked up a subscription to the WSJ for $4 a month for 12 months. I thought it was just available New Year's day, but I got another email that it was still on, but ending soon. If you're interested, here's the link...

It reverts to $39/month after 12 months. :shock: Just warning you.

You can also sign up for the Saturday print edition for free.

This is the same deal as the Black Friday deal offered for a few weeks in November that I took advantage of. Folks will want to keep in mind that is for digital, not for print. It is still a bargain. Thanks for sharing! :beer

Hmm, so tempted, but will keep with the bouncing back and forth between the WSJ app and library's free article access.

Did a very similar WSJ deal a year ago or so.

When I went to cancel my subscription at the end of the promotion period, I found they won't let you cancel electronically (through the app or online). They make you call. And sit on hold. And talk to someone and explain. Yeah, it was only about 20 minutes, but in today's day and age, I'm not going to mess with the false hoops they put up. YMMV.

So just curious. Periodically (see what I did there) I have had wsj subscription. Feel like Monday articles are in why market will crash, Tuesday on why they will go up, Wednesday prediction is for bear, Thursday prediction bull. Friday it gets mixed up. The next week same only days might be different. What are folks getting out of wsj?

This is where virtual cards come in handy. Create one specifically for WSJ and when you’re done, close the card. Charges stop without having to deal with this type of stuff.

I get out of it the news, the reporting of which I put on par with that from The New York Times and The Washington Post. I also read the editorials, which allows me to see a "take" that is usually different from the opinion pages in those other two newspapers (although not always, let us say).

I read mostly for national, international and political news, opinion, and general business news.

When I open, these are the articles in the feed. There's actually very little market commentary.
