If you could just clarify, does NYT stop access to the app after 8 weeks if it is not renewed? Also, you said that crossword was not downloaded. Are there other things that you do not download.

Q:

hi - i'd like to "gift" this groupon - but don't want to do so yet. i'd like to purchase, then send it to the recipient in a week's time. is this possible? i know if i fill out the gift info - they'll get an email immediately, right? thanks!

ashley e.  asked on  Jul 19, 2012

A:

If you use the "Buy it for a friend!" link to make the purchase, you can choose "I'll print it myself" at the gift message box and omit an email address. You can print it and give it later. Even if you buy the Groupon with the Buy button, you can still gift the Groupon. The purchaser or gift recipient name is not displayed on the printed Groupon. This allows Groupons to be easily gifted to friends or family.
