The Groupon is for 6 months, but the paper will stop your paper 2 weeks earlier and without warning. "Premium" papers such as MLK Day are the reason that they cut my subscription short by a full two weeks. Customer service is nonexistent. The most contact you will have is when the paper runs out and then a service will dial you nonstop asking you to renew.....and this started the day they (not I) stopped the paper.

KC Star denied ever getting the groupon and discount and they fought me for 3 months with 3 different departments harassing me - even though I sent them confirmation emails with their own KC Star staff and the groupon staff - because of this horrific experience I no longer subscribe to the KC Star newspaper - hate it!!!!!!!!

I did not know that the KC Star could chose not to honor the Groupon but they did. Had to get a refund from Groupon after fighting with the KC Star :(

After two months of purchasing my Groupon, it had never been applied to my account. I could never get anyone from the KC Star to respond to my emails or calls about getting it applied. I spoke with numerous representatives from Groupon and all of them attempted to contact KC Star and again could never get them to respond. Groupon eventually had to just credit my account back. Extremely frustrating and unprofessional!

I bought the Groupon for the Kansas City Star two day subscription the 2nd week of November. It was supposed to start in 7-10 days and as of Dec. 9, I still have not seen a paper!

I had so much trouble getting the KC Star to deliver the newspaper. It took 3 calls to Groupon, and 6 calls to the Star. After about 6 weeks it was resolved. Not worth the hassle.
