renewing subscriptions

How much do you pay for your New Yorker?

I managed to get a sweet deal where I had a year's subscription (47 issues?) for $27. My subscription was up for renewal again, so I called in and asked if they had any deals. They did: a year for $30, or 100 issues for $53.

I took the 100 issues. I love the New Yorker, and though it often piles up, I always come back to it. I can't believe that I'm going to be receiving it until July of 2009 though -- this is the longest-term commitment I have.


  1. Lucky you that they didn't set you up for automatic renewal :) I have to opt out of that every year. I dislike automatic renewal because my address and preferred credit card keep changing.

  2. what about me!?! commitment to me!


  3. Hein,

    I have no idea why I don't have automatic renewal. But I'll say this -- the New Yorker customer service is great. I've had them resend missed issues (just once) and whenever I talk to them to renew it works out great.
