$50 In Free Amazon Dollars For Scaling the WSJ Paywall Is Your Deal of the Day

Illustration for article titled $50 In Free Amazon Dollars For Scaling the WSJ Paywall Is Your Deal of the Day

As online paywalls go, the Wall Street Journal has one of the least porous. Which makes sense, because content costs money and folks interested in the WSJ will probably shell out. But right now, they're running a promotion that merits your attention even if you have no interest in following the Asian bond market.

If you sign up for three months of reduced-price WSJ digital access ($22) they'll send you a $50 Amazon gift card. Basically, that's a half-price Amazon gift card, and oh, you get access to a premier financial newspaper at the same time. You don't have to be an analyst to see the profit opportunity.


If there was a difficulty level for this deal, it would be hard. There are some caveats: first, you've got to be a first-time subscriber. Second, it'll take 7-10 days six weeks for them to email you the gift card. And finally — and this is a real kick in the groin — you can't unsubscribe online. After you decide you don't want to read the latest on mergers and acquisitions, you have to call WSJ up to get them to stop billing you. But if you can jump through all those hoops, you'll have a nice little windfall. Invest it in tech stocks or something; you'll have all the information you need. [WSJ via Fatwallet]

If you have a Citibank credit card, use the virtual card generator on their website. The generated card will expire after April, well before WSJ charges you for the 4th month. That should mean you don't need to call in to cancel, as they will not longer have a valid card to charge to.
