This deal is no longer available.
I just can’t believe it. It’s finally happened! The Oregonian has come up with a multiple Sunday paper deal for people in the Portland area. A gigantic thanks to Jessica from MoneyManiac.com for working out this deal with the circulation department.
Here’s the deal they are offering:
:: Friday, Saturday and Sunday paper for $20 for 24 weeks
:: You can order as many additional Sunday papers as you want for $20 for 24 weeks = $.84 per Sunday paper
:: The total cost will be billed by mail, which will be sent out within a week of ordering the subscription
:: You can cancel at any time without penalty (at the end of the promotional period) but they will not refund any monies already paid
:: This promotion is available to those in the Portland Metropolitan area only. Not valid in Washington (I know, guys. I’m sorry!). If you live a bit outside the Metro area, do not be surprised if they deny you this deal.
:: You must call your subscription in at 503.221.8240 (do not order online). Please wait until later this afternoon (2 pm on Wednesday) to call to make sure the customer service reps have been prepped on this deal.
Here’s how it will work for a multiple subscription deal: Say you want 4 Sunday papers delivered to your home. You will pay $80 for 24 weeks. It will be billed in a week or two and you will have to pay the entire $80 at once.
From what Jessica has figured, The Oregonian is fairly reluctant to offer this deal because they are not making money off of it. In fact, they are only committing to offering it for the first 24 weeks, meaning they are not guaranteeing we can get the $.84/paper price after the first round. Jessica and I are thinking they may be persuaded if they get enough additional sales.
So please jump on this offer! It’s absolutely the best offer available for the Sunday Oregonian (unless you’re scoring inserts for free from friends & family).
Most importantly, please be kind and polite to the customer service people, even if they aren’t up to speed on the deal yet. If you run into problems, just call back tomorrow or Friday. Let’s give The Oregonian a lot of grace as they work out the details on this generous deal. And please don’t pitch a fit if you live outside the set location for this deal. You are welcome to email the circulation department asking for them to consider including your area, but be nice. Please.
