Locals: The Washington Post Subscription Instead of The Virginian Pilot?

Yesterday I was cutting coupons with a blogger friend (yep we do that) and some of her inserts had different covers on them then mine do.  I asked her what was up and she nonchalantly said they were from The Washington Post.

Now occasionally I will stop by the store on Sunday and grab a Post but not every week- they are around $3!

She explained to me she has The Washington Post dropped on her front porch every Sunday morning.  I had no idea it could be delivered here!

You see I love The Virginian Pilot but they have one major flaw- they do not have the Red Plum Insert inside [1].

So I went online and checked out The Washington Posts website [2]– my zip code is included in their delivery area now!

Currently you can get a year’s subscription to The Washington Post for $.99 a week for a paper with potentially better coupons plus ALL the inserts.  Right now I am going to have it delivered each week along with my Virginian Pilot.

I still have about 5 months left on my subscription to the Virginian Pilot so I don’t have to make a decision for a while about what I will do.

But if I don’t have any delivery issues with The Washington Post- The Pilot is in danger of being cancelled!

*Offer only valid in limited locations within The Post’s 7-day home-delivery area for new subscribers and those who have not been a Post subscriber for the past 30 days. You will be charged a one-time payment for the initial 52-week subscription period. After 52 weeks pay $2.50/week.
