So the other day, I wrote that Walmart increased their Sunday Newspaper prices to the current rate of $2.50 per edition, because one store said that they are worth value.
Of course they are. Sunday papers come with over $300 worth of coupons that can save lots of people time and money on things they NEED such as personal hygiene products and WANTS such as make up.
Sunday coupons to me are like FREE MONEY and all I had to pay was $1 for it. The Dollar Store and the 99 CENTS store sells them at that rate and I think it's a bad move for Walmart to increase their price (at least in my local area).
At the end of that blog, I wrote that I would call the Union Tribune and ask if they could make it possoble for me to receive 5 papers every Sunday for only $50 for an entire year. The rep who helped me said, "Yes!"
I am so stoked. I'm supposed to receive these subscriptions starting this Sunday so let's see if UT delivers.
I've had issues before with delivery and that's why I would just buy the papers myself at the store. So I'm really hoping that I won't have an issue with the papers actually being delivered.
To break it down, I buy at least 3-4 papers every Sunday (except on a holiday weekend). So that equals approximately (on average) $20/mo, which is $240/year (approximately). Looking at these numbers, nevertheless of conveniences, I'm saving 80%!!! And gas and time so that's like 100% to moi...
All I said was, "Good morning. I'm currently a subscriber and right now I have a really good deal on my subscription. Is there any way I can quadruple that promotion and just pay $50 a year for 5 papers every Sunday delivered to my door?"
She said, "Yes!!"
