Advice: Best promo for if you want to try it out

Posted By on June 22, 2015


For those of you who are NOT Wall Street Journal readers, but have always wanted to try it out, here’s your chance. The $1 price is about as cheap as I’ve ever seen from  … for a 3 month introductory deal. The yearly or normal monthly subscription is higher and can be hard to justify for all but the most loyal WSJ readers. A a truehearted reader, even I can’t justify $28.99/mo or the $260/yr price as I lamented about it back in 2012.

The $1 for 3 months will get you the digital only version (works great on iPads and tablets), but for $4 more they’ll also include the newspaper. The catch is that Dow Jones will charge your credit card the $28.99 price if you do not call to cancel your subscription – 1-800-568-7625.

If you are a little nitpicky about remembering to call on these automatic bills … then use a virtual credit card number like those offered by Citibank. Sneaky, eh?
