Q:

I have a similar question to the one asked above. I had a subscription in the past, I'm not too sure when it expired, but I wouldn't want to activate this for a while anyway. If I buy it now and I'm still within the 60 day period, but I won't activate it until after the 60 day period is up one way or the other - can I do that?

I'm very sorry that we were unable to get to your question! Since this Groupon is only available for purchase until midnight tonight, I suggest contacting the merchant directly at (518) 454-5500. Thanks for your interest!

Q:

I am thinking of gifting this to an elderly couple. At the end of the subscription period, will the paper continue to be delivered, or does it stop? If delivery continues, what is the price? Who would be billed - them, or me? Thank you.

From the merchant:

"There is a small grace period at the end of each subscription, which will allow you time to renew your subscription, should you choose to do so. That period is five days. If you would prefer not to have these five days, you'll need to call our subscriber services team. Thank you for your interest in the Times Union."

Q:

I was hoping that I could take advantage of this deal but checked the zip codes and its not available here. I'm technically in catskill but halfway between South cairo and Leeds. So the paper is delivered on each side of me and I can't get it?? I'm probably 1 mile outside the South Cairo zip code(12482) and 2-3 miles outside of the Leeds zip code(12451). Who can I talk to about this??

A:

This offer is only available in the ZIP codes listed. Unfortunately, we're unable to deliver the Times Union outside of the ZIP codes listed. I apologize for the difficulty. - Greg S., Circulation Community Manager, Times Union

Q:

Can I give an e-edition as a gift and how do I do that? It's for an 85 year old and I'd like to send it directly to her e/m. Can I?

kristin w.  asked on  Oct 15, 2013

A:

To purchase a Groupon as a gift, select the deal from your daily email or directly on www.groupon.com, and then click the blue "Give as a Gift" link under the "Buy" button. Fill in the gift message and recipient information in the "Gift Options" pop-up window (the message will be displayed if you choose to send the gift via email). Click save, then fill in your payment information and click "Confirm Order".

If you want to purchase gifts for multiple people or place an additional order for yourself, you will have to make separate transactions. Please note that we include the purchase price on all Groupons (including gifts) so that they can be redeemed for that amount after the expiration date. This is required by expiration laws and simplifies the post-expiration redemption process for customers and businesses. Hope that helps!
