Hey, Wasn't that my idea? I wrote it as a comment on your recent blogpost about the cost of the SJ.
I haven't had the heart to do it to the SJ as yet. Still considering it.

This is really a scam on gullible old people. I would like to see some data on who will be paying $59.01 a month for their daily paper. It's grandma and grandpa, mostly, I'd bet. Shame on Gannett for scamming old people. How is this different than the other ways that old people get scammed? This old person switched to the e-newpaper a long time ago, so I am not getting scammed.

Aileen, great ideas can pop up in many minds. Last June I wrote about getting a lower subscription rate after cancelling for 30 days in this blog post:


You should give it a try. I drive into town most days, so I'm just going to buy a paper at a convenience store or drugstore for the month of December.

I am writing to cancel my subscription to the Statesman Journal. Cancellation to begin as soon as possible!!

i've been trying to get intouch with the delivery of the Austin state mans newspaper delivery service I do not want the newspaper delivered to me... i'm canceling my order my name is Wilma hill I live in harker heights tx 76548 I was told only two papers in all would be delivered to my home and they got my info in a way that didn't seem honest but it was done so fast before I realized it so please cancel my prescription as of 06=26=2018...…….thank you Wilma hill 254-366-8688 harker heights...tx

we have been taking the Statesman Journal since 1978, when we moved to Oregon. We have really enjoyed your paper. But with all the increased rates, less news, more ads, I am now CANCELLING my SUBSCRIPTION. This encludes the USA TODAY paper that you say will be coming at the current rate. I will not pay any more for either paper and want both stopped NOW. This is the last month that I will OK a payment. Good luck in staying in business.
