Here’s a list of questions that you may have about the special offer from the Oregonian.
How do I get this special deal from the Oregonian?
Just attend one of Frugal Living NW’s FREE web classes and you’re qualified! Find more info about the classes and register for an upcoming one here.
Do I qualify for this deal?
Check out our zip code list to see if you live within the area to get one of the two deals.
I don’t live in one of the zip codes listed. Can I still get the deal?
Are there any Oregonian deals for other areas?
Not at this time.
How many Sunday papers can I get?
You may get up to 5 subscriptions total per household, regardless of how many adults or separate families are represented at one address.
When will my first Sunday papers arrive?
Your papers should arrive in 3 Sundays.
When will the charge go through on my debit/credit card?
Your order will be submitted and your debit/credit card charged the week after your order is taken.
I didn’t receive my first set of papers. What should I do?
Check your debit/credit card statement or your bank account. If you see a charge from the Oregonian, then you are in the Oregonian’s system and you need to contact the Oregonian’s customer service line (call 503-221-8240 — dial 0 during the recording to get a real person quickly).
If you do not see a charge on your debit/credit card, email Angela at firstname.lastname@example.org to see what’s up. It may be that your card was declined, you live outside the delivery area, or the Oregonian is behind on inputting orders.
I received 1 paper, but ordered more. What should I do?
If you received a paper, then you are in the Oregonian’s system and you need to contact the Oregonian’s customer service line (call 503-221-8240 — dial 0 during the recording to get a real person quickly). They should deliver your additional papers that morning or the next morning, depending on how late in the day you call.
How do I order additional papers?
If you’ve already attended a couponing class, just email Angela at email@example.com and we’ll hook you up!
When will my subscription end?
Depends on the deal you qualify for. It’s either 52 weeks (one year) or 26 weeks (6 months).
What will happen at the end of my 52 week subscription?
The Oregonian is handling each subscription differently (for some reason). One of three things will happen when your subscription period is up:
1. They will renew this special deal for an additional year and bill you by mail. You have the option of accepting the offer or canceling it. Your debit/credit card should not be automatically charged. This is what happened to me personally when my initial 52 weeks were up.
2. They will move you to a different subscription plan (probably a $.99 per week plan) and bill you by mail. You have the option of accepting the offer or canceling it. Your debit/credit card should not be automatically charged. You can sign up for the special I’m offering for a second year by attending another coupon class.
3. They will cancel your subscription altogether and not offer you either of the deals mentioned above.
Please note that these scenarios have happened to other subscribers when their subscriptions were up. I cannot guarantee what will happen to you or that this special deal will be available again. What I do know is there is NOTHING stated on the order form that we will out that states your debit/credit card will be automatically charged, so you shouldn’t have to worry about that.
Can I put my subscription on hold?
Yes, you can put a hold on the weeks you will be out-of-town, but your subscription will not be extended the additional weeks as with a typical Oregonian subscription because you’re getting such a smokin’ deal.
What will happen at the end of my subscription?
Please note that the Oregonian can pull this deal at any time, so it may not be available when you’re subscription period ends. Let’s just cross our fingers :).
What if I move during the year?
If you are moving within the qualifying delivery areas, just contact the Oregonian to have your address changed. If you’re moving outside the qualifying area, contact the Oregonian to have the remaining balance refunded.
Why am I getting the Wednesday paper as well as the Sunday paper?
Honestly, I don’t know. The Wednesday paper contains the grocery store ads, so that’s nice.
Will I still get my Food Day paper with this deal?
No. The Food Day (technically the “This Week” paper from the Oregonian) is a free paper delivered sometime Monday night to Wednesday morning, depending on where you live. It is delivered to homes that do not receive a daily paper. Since you’re getting a Wednesday daily paper with this deal, you won’t get a Food Day.
I have a friend or family member who wants in on this deal. What should they do?
They just need to attend a Frugal Living NW coupon class! Send them to this page for more info and to register for an upcoming coupon class!
I have a couponing question. Can you answer it?
Absolutely! First, check out our Ultimate Guide to Couponing in the Northwest. If you still have a question, feel free to email Angela at firstname.lastname@example.org.
