    Thanks Faye. Sorry to hear the N&O is not offering all of their customers a fair deal across the board.

    Dr D - that is a good rate for Sunday only. Enjoy your year off from having to call. I just got my 7-day renewal and it was not as good: $194.29 for the year (that's $3.74/wk). Since I only want the paper for the Sunday coupons and the Wednesday ads, that's too much to pay. I WILL be giving their retention dept a call on Monday, like I have to do every single year...... lol

    carelesswhisper - well done! It's definitely a great deal!

    I was able to get in on the Arm & Hammer detergent deal at Walgreens. 2 liquid and 1 pacs for 3.xx

    I'm happy!

    I'm really surprised: For the first time in many years, I've opened my annual Sunday-only N&O renewal bill and not found it to be outrageous. $78.03 / 52 weeks = $1.50 per paper. I don't have to call them this year to say I'd like to cancel in order to get the rate reduced. If you've renewed a Sunday-only subscription to the N&O recently, what was your rate per paper?

    I also didn't receive Carlie's C email today.

    cbbunn - I did not get the e-mail this week from Carlie C's, but I logged in to my digital coupons account and there are TWO freebies available today! See them at the link below. I just posted about them.

    Has anyone received the Carlie C's free item of the week? I haven't received the email and am curious if it's only me. Thanks.
