I have the StarTribune delivered to our house 7 days a week. At a family gathering I was told to call the paper and ask for either the $1.75 for the whole week or $1.50 for Wed. thru Sunday. I was paying $4.29 a week. That's $91.00 vs $223.00 for the whole year. The normal price for Sunday only is over 100.00 per year. I told them I was thinking of cancelling.

Ottertailguy, I just called and asked about the program you mentioned and found out that it is only good for 13 weeks and then they put you back on the regular deal and your cost goes up to something like $4 per week. Keep your eye on the mail box as evidently you will be given notice end willhave a chance to cut it back to whatever other program you wish. Too much hassle for me I am going to just stay with the sunday paper at $2

Just keep telling them you want to cancel, and they will keep giving you the lowest rates, I would imagine.

I don't get the paper anymore though.

I'm wondering what other companies are run this way. Maybe they all are these days but you have to ask. I thought others would like to know what this fish wrap companing was charging.

I did this .50 a week for a year deal, but I don't anymore. Be sure you read the fine print and ask how long you have to pay. I was getting bills in the mail and was paying $6.50 every time I got a bill, then one Sunday the paper quit coming, so I called and asked why and they said that I didn't pay my bill, I of course knew I had and told them that I kept getting bills, but didn't know why since I sent the checks and they cleared the bank each time- I was told that since I didn't pay the entire $26.00 by some time frame that my subscription reverted to a standard cost and I owed them money. The last check had already cleared the bank otherwise I would have stopped payment on it. I told them to put a note in my account to never call me again. Now, was this my fault, maybe, The bills that came never had the amount correct on them, there was never a $26.00 option on the bill. I figured it to be a screw up on their part and made my payments as needed, I thought. For a company that is laying people off because they are not selling papers anymore you would think they would work for you a little more, now they will never get another .10 out of me. So long story short, read the terms of the payment on "deals" they are sending out.

I told my father in-law last week after they got back from Florida. So he called but they told him that the $91.00 is over. So then he said he was going to cancel and then gal on the phone told him that she could offer him $111 for a year. It's still better than regular price so he took it. Yes, the newspapers across the country are on tough times but I don't think charging people different prices for their product is the answer.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.

      Who’s worried about a jacket showing proof of action when the catching is that good?! 
    • eyeguy 54
