When COVID hit last year, I stayed in PA with my mother and ordered both the NYTimes food and NYTimes basic newspaper subscriptions. The food link is $40/year. The Basic news subscription was $4/week for a year.
That year is now ending and NYTimes just sent me email saying my subscription will increase to $17/week on March 27. I tried to cancel online but they do not provide that option. You must either call or use their chat.
It was a 50-minute chat, but in the end, they renewed my $4/week for another year rather than lose me altogether.
If you enrolled for the reduced subscription rate last year, be on the lookout for an increase notification in your email. And remember that you can’t just click UNSUBSCRIBE.
