Tony's news bothered at least one KC Star subscriber who wasn't eligible for the special deal, so he decided to cancel his subscription.
... after hearing that they were trying to practically give my paper away for free to Tony, I had to call them to cancel. That’s where the challenge was. They have no link for cancellations on the website. Oh, sure, they’ll encourage you to suspend your service while yo go out of town, but they don’t have an option for you to flat out cancel.
Thus, I had to dial their local number (816) 234-7827. Number didn’t work. So, I stepped it up and dialed the 877 number and got in touch with a representative who, before she agreed to cancel my order, tried her hardest to swing me over to the weekend only (Fri-Sun) version for a nominal fee. When I asked how much that was, it was only a few dollars cheaper than the everyday version. I’d be a bigger fool going that route.
I told her I wanted a clean break. She finally gave in and I’m out that mugg. I’d have to agree with TKC, there is no way I could support paying them the regular rate and they’re giving it away to others. Sorry.
