Re: Globe and Mail subscription 50% off

If you are a full-time post-secondary student, you are entitled to a special offer for Monday-Saturday and Saturday-only subscriptions. (This special offer is not available on Motor Routes.)
Currently our subscription rates are:

SUBSCRIPTION COST (BEFORE TAXES)

Monday-Saturday
13 weeks $38.87
26 weeks $77.74
52 weeks $155.48

Saturday only
13 weeks $14.30
26 weeks $28.60
52 weeks $57.50
-------------------------------

A normal subscription costs $25 a month. You have to enter a school name and student ID, but I highly doubt that they verify it with the school. I've been getting this for the past 3 months, very pleased.

AFAIK, the Globe is the only major paper with a student discount.

You can also add the Wall Street Journal to your subscription for an extra $4 a week. Which IMO is a killer deal if you can't get enough business news.

I didnt know u had to be full-time - they never asked me.

As far as I know, they dont check to see if you're still at school or not, but they do ask when you plan to graduate.

It's a great deal :)

Yep. But most people aren't aware they can get a student discount (to the best newspaper in Canada, by far).

I just grab the free Toronto Star at my university; they provide them akk the way north to North Bay, and east to Kingston. Definately a good promotion for them, and good exposure.

To clarify: this rate is only for active post secondary students and is NOT open to everyone. They will ask you for your school and a student number when you sign up.

It is certainly a good deal though, particularly for business students as Report on Business is a great business section, far better than the Toronto Star's section.

That's a fantastic deal. The Globe is definitely Canada's newspaper for business news and commentary. Throw in the WSJ and you'll never have to leave your home!

I used to get the National Post through the same deal for post secondary school students. Now I get the Globe - better paper.

Don't like their sports section; good business section.

I think it's a conspirancy:
re: VCR papers
Province: great sports section
Sun: good for local news
Globe & Mail: good business section

(forces you to buy all three! :angry: )

Is the National Post deal available online? I might try it out, although the Post has been in a big decline.

I don't think u can get it online, I had to call in and suscribe. I'll look around campus tommorw and see if they still have the poster up with the offer number and post it here if I find it.

Otherwise, you can always call in and tell them about it, I'm sure they will know what you are talking about.

ya, instead of giving students the student offer on subscription, Toronto Star and Globe and Mail give us free papers everyday. we get a zillion of them lying around campus all the time. usually all gone at the stand by 11 or so though, but you can always find a copy on the floor or in a lecture hall somewhere.

it used to be just Toronto Star, this year, we get the Globe too...plus the free "24 hours" newspaper by the SUN.

and today i found this new magazine called Trivia Magazine...all crosswords, puzzles, wordsearch etc...

i dont' know about other people, but i hardly have enough time to read all these papers in one day!
