Baltimore Sun: Sunday paper $.75 special

I have found a deal on a new Baltimore Sun subscription: https://subscribe.baltsun.com/Circulation/ - code 0360 (introductory 26-week offer for new subscribers or those who didn't have the paper delivered for the past 30 days) gets you Sunday paper for $.75 per week - that's at least 50% off newsstand price, and is worth it if you clip and redeem even just one coupon per week.

It gets even better if you choose 'EZ Pay' option: they have a special 'members only' area that has more coupons, contests, sweepstakes and other reader rewards and is open only to subscribers with 'EZ Pay'. I can't tell you if the coupons are the same or different from those found elsewhere or if the contests are worth getting into - DH prefers 'bill me' option as he likes to review things before actually paying for them.

Anyhow, if you live in the delivery area of Baltimore Sun and are currently not getting your Sunday paper with coupons, you might want to check it out. I've only gotten it for 1 week and it already paid for itself. I'll tell you how in my next post.

Reader Rewards at the Sunpapers is THE best deal. I only get the paper on the weekends but since I pay with EZ-Pay I can be a member of Reader Rewards and boy do you get a lot of benefits. I only subscribed in June but went to their private screening of Dark Knight last week. My friend went got tickets with Post Points over at the Washingto Post and waited in line for 4 hours! With Reader Rewards, they had us on a list and we just walked in. It was great.

I also got free tickets to Hershey Park and took my daughter. When we got there we found out they were about $50 each so this program is a great deal!

And their coupons are great too. We went to Medieval Times on a buy one get one deal.

Wish I had known about this before. Thanks for the info.

Wow! Thanks so much for info about Reader Rewards. I wasn't sure if it was worth it, but now I think it definitely is! I will check if I can get to it by switching to EZ-Pay: I would *love* to get free tickets to Hershey's as I had promised my girls that we's go there.

Thanks again!

I have to tell you Mary is right as rain. Reader Rewards at the Sunpapers is amazing!

My husband and I live in Columbia and have always read the Post. We joined the Post Points program and were frustraited as it just seemed like another advertising thing that wasn't really much of a benefit. Our neighbor was showing us a coupon book from Reader Rewards on our way to hershey park and we couldn't believe it. We paid almost $100 for our two tickets to Hershey and they got theirs free with Reader Rewards.

We called the Reader Rewards people to ask about the program and the lady we spoke to could not have been nicer. We joined and within our first two weeks got half off at Toby's Dinner theater and free tickets to to see Michael Buble! My daughter went nuts! The seats were great.

There are SO many of these rewards programs but this one really does reward you. Their site is www.baltimoresun.com/readerrewards and they add stuff every week or so. I called 410 332-6978 to join. They said it doesn't matter how many days you get the paper but you must do it with a credit card.
