Subscribers to “The Olympian” might want to read the fine print

June 6th, 2017 by Ken

I was trying to decide if I wanted to renew my subscription to The Olympian.  While looking for a place to write or call, I came across some fine print.   I decided to read it.   Here’s what I found out.

If you’re a subscriber to the paper already.  You don’t have to do anything.  According to the fine print, your subscription will be automatically renewed, unless you notify them.  The number is in the fine print. In other words, it’s an opt out instead of an opt in.   Not paying your subscription when it expires could result in a large payment for you in the future.

Then, the paper reserves the right to change subscription rates with a 30 day notice. That notice could be by mail, on-line or just in the pages of the newspaper.

You also pay a $2 fee for special publications, called Premium editions.  Some of them have already passed this year but Premium editions published on June 22, Sept. 7, October 12 and Dec 14 will include the additional fee.  A $1 fee will also be added for the Thanksgiving edition.

For those of you who are thinking about subscribing, the paper charges a $9.99 cent start-up fee.

I have just touched on some of the fine print.   You might want to read it yourself.
