Just a heads up to anyone taking advantage of this offer. The Globe and Mail changed where their papers are printed (along with a change in the paper itself) on October 1st and have had production and delivery problems since the first day of the change. Since that day, I have not received a paper on time and a couple of days a paper never even showed up. I am on a free subscription right now and have voiced my displeasure with the change and they have no estimated time as to when they hope to have things back to "normal".

Not to quibble with the previous poster, but since the change, I have noticed no change in my (free) service.

I'm glad that the previous posters didn't notice a change. The change has been noticed for Winnipeg customers because they moved the printing of the paper for Manitoba/Saskatchewan to Estevan, Saskatchewan from Brandon, Manitoba. I wish I didn't have any problems, but I have not received a paper on time from day one of the new changes and didn't receive a paper for a couple of days with the explanation that they were short of delivery people. They even sent me a letter explaining the new changes and asking to be patient. They extended my free subscription for two weeks because of the massive screwups.

does, the subscription run out automatically?
I noticed I didn't have to give any credit card information.

so I guess there is no auto renewal?

I bet we'll be getting many calls once our free delivery runs out.

My McD free 90days just finished and I miss the Globe and Mail.

Hopefully this free subscription works :)

Awesome!
I just received my first one today!

I live in an apartment so it's nice they take the time to deliver to apartments!

Thanks OP!
