Q:

If I get this today can I start it in May? Or at least call Seattle times on January 3rd which is60 days after my cancellation, to have them start it in May?

Im sorry, the 60 days starts from the day you purchase the deal before it expires. So no, the deal would not be eligible as you describe it.

Q:

Can it be delivered to military housing? I live on the Keyport Navy Base.

Cassandra M.  asked on  Dec 25, 2012

A:

Sorry, but yes it does. However, you should have gotten a renewal invoice with another great rate on it. Our regular delivery rate is $3.15 each week. This covers the printing of the newspaper and the carrier cost to deliver it each week. We susidize those rates to gain new subscribers allowing them to try the product and find the value and worth in it. On the renewal rate, it should be still a little less than half the regular rate. If not, please let me know. Sorry about teh long winded answer and thank you for taking the time to ask.

Q:

I purchased a one year Seattle Times Sunday paper subscription through Groupon on December 5, 2011. I was wondering if this sentence applied to the subscription I purchased: “Active cancellation required at end of Groupon period to avoid automatic renewal at a promotional rate”

Adrienne Z.  asked on  Dec 26, 2012

A:

Hi, Adrienne: Yes, that sentence was included as part of "The Fine Print" section of our December 5, 2011 offer through Groupon.

Q:

So is there ANYTHING I have to do after making the purchase to get delivery started?

David C.  asked on  Dec 24, 2012

A:

When you complete the purchase you provide us your Name, Addres and Phone number and we will start it the second Sunday after you sign up. For example, if you signed up today (Monday 12/24), your paper will start on January 6, 2013. If you wish to have it sooner, please send an email to me at dturgeon@seattletimes.com stating so and I will have it started on 12/30/12. I will need that email by Friday 12/28 at noon in order to do so.
