No More Free Wall Street Journal?
« on: November 02, 2016, 03:54:11 PM »
Seems like the free 26 weeks of Wall Street Journal offer (Rewards Gold) is no longer offered. Anyone know of a way to get the free subscription?

So wouldn't a larger circulation help it in getting more advertising money?

Not necessarily. The reason why they offer premium subscription is because the digital advertising doesn't cover the cost of them. Therefore it depends on the conversion rate of the free 26 week promo to the paid subscription.

There's still the miles option. I hope they don't follow The Economist's lead.

If you have Verizon, I recently got a year from Verizon Smart Rewards. The points are otherwise pretty much useless anyway in my experience.
