The Inquirer is Offering a Limited Time Digital Deal: $6 for Six Months

I saw Domo tweet this earlier and thought he made a typo:

Really? Six dollars for six months? So… one dollar a month for six entire months? That’s a wild deal.

Sure enough, that is exactly what’s happening here, and when you click through the subscribe link on the website, you see something at the bottom of the page that looks like this:

If you continue through that jawn you get to another page with with three different subscription options, and this is the digital option being offered until midnight tonight:

What’s the catch?

Here are the specific details listed with this option:

  • $6 for the first 6 months
  • $3.50 per week thereafter
    (charged $14.00 every 4 weeks)
  • Unlimited Digital Access to The Philadelphia Inquirer and The Daily News Replica editions
  • Automatic subscription to Morning Newsletter and Insider Email
  • Improved browsing experience
  • Automatically renews at the same rate, unless we notify you in advance
  • Cancel anytime

So if you do the six month deal and then keep your subscription for the rest of the year, you’d be paying $90 total for a year of full digital access to the Inquirer. If you just wanted the Eagles coverage for six months, and then cancel your subscription, signing up today would take you through the entire NFL season, up to last day of February or so.

As you know, the Inquirer/Daily News/Philly.com is going through another round of buyouts and layoffs. Sam Donnellon, Rick O’Brien, and John Smallwood took buyouts. Zach Berman left for The Athletic. Sarah Todd is also leaving the company and won’t be on the Sixers beat this season. They also lost a bunch of sports desk people.

Interesting times over there.

    It’s a limited time offer because they will be out of business soon.

    Ok so they lost a few hacks

    Sam Donnellon – He was MOTO Man – Moster of the Obvious. Never told you something you didnt know

    Rick O’Brien, — Swell guy but he covered HS sports. Riveting stuff on Council Rock Girls Hoops!

    John Smallwood — Always had an agenda but that agenda changed every time he wrote a new piece with a new agenda.
    Side note – the guy was a house. Must have been pushing 300 Lbs

    Zach — Solid reporter.

    Sarah Todd – Meh. That other Phillies guy they have now (Lauber) falls into the same category

    Not much to see here anymore . Plus way too much coverage of the UNION .

    Carry on

    This shameless ad masquerading as an article was brought to you the Phailing Philadelphia Inquirer.

      It’s hardly an “ad” when the post all but says “for $6, keep it for 6 months then cancel before the $14/month kicks in.”
