*GONE*$0.49 Sunday Washington Post Subscription Summer Sale

One of our local sources for coupons is the Washington Post Sunday edition. Right now the Washington Post has a summer sale for their Sunday edition. Only $0.49 per week for Sunday home-delivery when you sign-up and pre-pay for 26 weeks. That equals 76% off the normal Sunday-only newsstand rate, and is the best sale offer I’ve seen lately!

To sign up go to https://www.wpsubscribe.com/summersale3/ and you can enter your zip code and then fill out your information. Or call 1-800-955-1197, etx. 3. Offer expires 7/31/2010.

At the end of the 26-week period they do automatically re-sign you up at the newsstand price, so be sure to mark your calendar to call in and renegotiate your price right before the end of the 6-months.

Got it! They called us a couple days ago because we recently canceled. I ordered 2 copies of the Sunday paper, such a great deal :)

Glad you got it Kim!
My $0.59 Post Sunday subscription (that I ordered back in Dec. 2009) is about to run up, so I’m hoping to be able to renew at the discounted rate or negotiate it at a lower price. I’m not good at negotiating, and I know the verbiage on some of the sales states that they are for “new customers” or folks who have not had at-home delivery for at least 30 days, so I may just have to cancel and then re-sign up. That’s great to hear that they called you to see if you wanted to re-sign up. That makes me hopeful that I can negotiate a renewal at the $0.49 rate. Love my coupons!

Hi Laura,

How are you doing? Hope all is well! Would love to catch up some time.

When I called Washington Post a couple months ago (thanks to your support Laura!) I just said I wanted to “canceled” and they immediately made me an offer to stay at a “$1.00” each Sunday. I said I would prefer the “$.59” a Sunday and the rep. put me on hold and said that would be fine and then I asked if I could have that for a year, and again she said yes!

So don’t worry about “negotiating” just ask. If they say “No” then cancel and call back later.

You can also sign up for the Savings Now edition of the Washington Post for free. I know it at least includes the RP insert (I signed up but haven’t received one yet).

I’m a few days late to the game (just moved), but they still gave it to me and are sending me a $10 prepaid Visa card since I set up for autopay, which I can call and cancel at any time. Thanks for the heads up!

Thanks for sharing Caroline! I’m glad you got to take advantage of the deal even a few days after 7/31. That’s great that you got the $10 Visa Card too. Just make sure to mark your calendar for the end of the 26 weeks (actually a little bit before) so that you will remember to call in and renegotiate your Sunday subscription renewal rate. I had one friend who was auto-renewed at full price much to her dismay.
