Newspaper Subscription Deals
Discounted Newspapers

This listing will provide places to get Newspaper Subscription Deals and Cheap or Discounted Newspapers. You can save money on one newspaper or multiple newspapers if you know where to purchase, or how to negotiate a great price. I've put together this list of the top 5 ways of where and how to get discount newspapers.  After reading this list, you should definitely be able to find or negotiate a better rate than what you are currently paying at the newsstand or for delivery. If you are purchasing newspapers mainly for the Coupon Inserts, I highly suggest that you purchase in increments of two(2) newspapers. This way you'll be able to double your savings on regular items, but especially for BOGO deals, where 2 of the same coupons can be used (One for each item in the BOGO sale). Multiple coupons also help when you are stocking up on items.

Newspaper Subscription Deals

1.  Daily Deal Sites

Discounted Sunday Paper

Purchase newspapers for 40 to 60% off when the offers become available through Daily Deal sites like:

Here’s an example of the Newspaper Subscription deals that they offer:

I was paying $28.07 for a 26 week Sunday only Subscription to my Paper which comes to $56.14 per year. Then they went up to $33.91 for 26 weeks or $67.82 per year and would not negotiate down, so I cancelled my subscription – knowing that cancelling would give me power at negotiating a better rate when I wanted to re-subscribe. But luckily, before I could even call to re-negotiate and re-subscribe directly, Groupon posted an offer for my local paper, stating “Good for 1-year Wednesday through Sunday Subscription for $20 – Limit 2.” When I saw this, I jumped on it and purchased 2 one-year subscriptions for only $40! If I had purchased 2 Sunday-only subscriptions directly with my paper, it would have cost me $135.64. Not only was I saving $95.64, but I was getting Wednesday-Saturday papers as well, plus double my coupons in the Sunday paper which I needed anyway.

2.  Newspaper Discounter

Purchase your Newspaper subscription from a discounter like if they're cheaper than your local carrier's prices and/or if a Daily Deal (as mentioned in #1 is not available). Enter your Zip Code to see if their rates are better than what you're paying now. 

3.  Ask for a New Subscriber/Special Rate

Purchase through your local Newspaper carrier at a reduced rate. When dealing with your local Newspaper carrier by phone, don’t just accept the rate that they give you or mail you in the Renewal Statement, because it will always be the highest rate. Oftentimes, they have a lower rate that they’re offering to new subscribers, or they have a special that they’re running in certain areas. Call up your local paper and say, “Hi, I want to know if you’re running any specials for the paper in my area, or if you're offering any specials to new subscribers.” They will then ask you for your Zip Code and/or address, so that they can look up any available offers. Even if you’re a current subscriber, you still have leverage. Tell them that your rate is simply too high and if they cannot lower your rate to the new subscriber rate or special rate that you will have no choice but to cancel your subscription. Many times they will give you the lower rate. If they can’t, ask to speak with a Supervisor. If the Supervisor cannot, then follow through with your threat and cancel your subscription. After cancelling, wait 2 weeks, then call back and subscribe at the new customer rate, unless a better deal comes in through one of the Daily Deal sites while you're waiting.

4.  Ask for a Volume Discount

If you would like to purchase 10 or more Sunday Papers each week, ask to speak to the Sales Manager at your local Newspaper, and ask for a volume discount.  You should be able to get the Sunday paper at a substantially lower price for this type of quantity.

5.  Amazon


Although not the first place you might think of for Newspapers, they carry some larger Nationally distributed Newspapers, such as USA Today and the New York Times - National Edition.  They also carry some smaller editions, so if you do not find your papers through discounted rates at the options listed above, be sure to check their site.

OMG, I just love your site! It’s jam-packed with stuff to save me money! I never even knew about the cash back shopping thing until I came here. I shop online every couple of days and always went right to the store’s websites. Who knew?! I’ve already earned back $115.48 by signing up and using the sites you suggested. And the money I’ve saved by switching over 3 of my prescriptions to the one’s on the generic list at my local WalMart –wow! I still haven’t seen your whole site, there’s so much available. Just wanted you to know that Discount Fanatics ROCKS!!! Adrianne P., USA

Hi, I was new to couponing and I came across your site. I just wanted you to know that I read through your couponing 101 course and your related materials about couponing and it was so easy to understand, thorough and detailed. I love that I’m even able to print coupons from so many sources right from your website. It’s amazing how much information you provide to us for free and I thank you. God Bless. Trina, USA

I got sick of my cable tv company raising their rates, so I was looking for alternatives to paying for the high price of cable like many others. Your free tv episodes list is GREAT! The links to the Networks and Cable Networks don’t just take me to their homepage, it takes me directly to the page where I view the tv episodes. Man, you guys are on the ball.  I come here everyday to link to whatever program or network I plan to watch. Matthew B., USA
