I wanted to let you know about a great deal I just got on The Tennessean. I called 1-800-342-8237 and asked for offer S-HU. This allowed me to get a Sunday-only subscription for just $1.00 per week. This offer is valid for 1 year. Best of all, I was able to order multiple copies!! I went ahead and set up EZPay where they bill my credit card every three months ($13.05).
If you aren't in the Nashville area, I would encourage you to contact your local newspaper and find out if they are offering any specials. Most newspapers will offer a Sunday-only subscription if you ask. They just don't advertise it because they would rather have you purchase a larger subscription.
Some of you might be wondering why I get multiple copies of the newspaper. It's for the coupons, of course! :) My old readers are probably tired of hearing me say this but it's true.... "the more coupons you have, the more times you can work a deal." By working a deal multiple times, you are able to stockpile those items at rock bottom prices. Hopefully you are able to purchase enough to hold you over until the next time that item goes on sale (typically every 6-12 weeks).
The "rule" on how many newspapers to purchase depends on your family size. Generally speaking, you should purchase 1 newspaper per member of your family. Personally, I like to keep things in even numbers so I purchase 2 each week. I also do this because BOGO's (Buy One Get One Free Items) come in multiples of 2. See, there is a method to my madness. Ha!
How many papers do you get each week? Do you get your papers(s) through a home subscription, retailer or news stand? Anyone lucky enough to get them FREE from neighbors or family members?
