So, the deal was, if you paid for a year's subscription you got a big discount plus $85 of Sprouts gift cards. I said, I would not want to pay a year in advance for a paper that might not get delivered on time. So, he then offered me 3 months for $47.25 plus a $20 Sprouts gift card and another $5 gift card just for giving them another chance.Sure, it's nice to get new subscribers, but customers who are enticed with gift cards and gimmicks won't stick around over the long run.
Sounded like a good deal. So, starting Thursday I'm back in the paper reading business.
