My paypal receipt only shows $9 as well.

I did notice last night when I first went to pay, the rate did jump back up to full price (right before I clicked the confirm button). Thought I messed something up, but glad I backed out and refreshed the page before paying with Paypal. :)
Glad they're providing refunds though

Is Shams still officially at the Athletic? Or is he just freelancing atm? He's suppose to be a free agent as of September. With the rumour a couple weeks ago that he'd team back up with Woj at ESPN.

All I see is the annual option at $5.99/month or the monthly option at $9.99/month

I click on the 1-step checkout on PayPal and it tells me to login and then I only have the option to pay and not see how much I'm actually being charged.

I clicked on the link and it shows 5.99 so I think the deal died

Brutal. Saw this 10 minutes ago, grabbed my CC, and now it's gone.

I forgot to negotiate / cancel and renew subscription at the end of the year, and they automatically charged me full price ($7 a month?) after 12 months :(

Still, I love the content, so I'm keeping it. I just set a reminder to negotiate or cancel / renew prior to the next renewal date.

Signed up for the $1.25/m offer but the confirmation email says it is only for 3 months.

I have to say that I really hate businesses that change their subscription prices so frequently. It's a real slap in the face to anyone who paid full price or even a slightly discounted rate when you then basically give it away. Pick a price and maybe have an annual sale for Labour Day or whatever.
