By using a cookie remover extension on your browser you can get the best "deal" which removes your daily/weekly reading limit count.

Or sign up for a library card and use their Presseader account to read the Star and lots of other papers. FYI the Star often offers subscription discounts at 99 cents/week (or $52 a year). Better than the $75 after Keg GC. If you want to subscribe it might be worth calling to ask.

There is no trade off, some developers make these extensions out of goodness of their heart.
Removing cookies is like clearing your browser history or clearing your browser cache. So when you go back to that site again, there's no record (on your end) that you've been there before.
Usually these paid content sites use cookies to track how much you've been reading.

Are these subscription deals only for online membership?

Does a gift subscription include ePaper access?
Gift subscriptions include The Star Digital Access via thestar.com, and do not include the ePaper. To gift a Toronto Star ePaper subscription, go to https://torontostar.pressreader.com/.

Years ago, I used to pay $1/week for 7 day delivery to my door. So $99/yr for digital access is not very hot.

I've been a subscriber for many years (since the Bob Prichard days). Unfortunately, the paper has declined so much during the past decade that I wouldn't even pay $1 a week for it if it was available. More and more of the paper is made up of opinions, editorials and Op-ed instead of news and investigative reporting. I suspect this paper has more columnists than news reporters. Delivery has been spotty too as I miss, on average, 2 days a month. The editors blame declining ad revenues. They tried some very pricey ventures to go digital and increase revenue but all went sour. I got my hopes up when new owners stepped in to buy the paper. But, IMHO, the new owners of this paper did not seem to have made any difference in the content, but simply ramped up marketing. Pre-COVID days, you can go to McDonalds every morning and pick up a free copy to enjoy reading with a cup of McCafe. All these reasons made me cancel. So caveat emptor.

Wut? No.
Hey look at me! I got a deal and you didn't. I am therefore superior as I prance around and show them off in my signature.

I'd say more like blinding rage about this kind of use of cookies and widespread tracking, but tomato tomahto.

lollll at the downvotes and this thread in general. OP, thanks for the post. I'm a monthly digital subscriber and it says this can be added to existing subscriptions so I am probably going to gift myself a year.

Darn, I got excited as I thought this was for paper version. I prefer delivered version as I like to do crosswords in print and paper is easier on my eyes.

Tempted to vote down anything with regards to the Star but it IS a good deal in terms of price vs. their regular daily cost.
Can't stomach their bias personally...but they have some good sections outside of their political editorial crap.
