Regular readers of this blog know that I balked at renewing my Wall Street Journal subscription this year because they raised their price from $215 per year to $249 per year. I let my subscription lapse but they kept sending me papers for about three weeks. They also kept sending me renewal notices but the renewal price stayed at $249 so I just kept throwing them away.
Well, Friday I got a “we want you back” letter from them with this offer:
I took them up on this deal, which is better than any deal I’ve ever had! The best I deal ever received in the past was $175 for a year’s subscription and that was back in 1997. Anyway, sometimes it pays to wait for a better offer.
