Get up to 1,000 Miles with $1 Subscription to Wall Street Journal or Barron’s

The Offer

Check WSJ Portal Rates | Check Barron’s Portal Rates

  • Get up to 1,000 bonus miles or $10 when you signup for a 2-month Wall Street Journal subscription with a cost of just $1.
  • Get up to 1,000 bonus miles or $10 when you signup for an 8-week Barron’s subscription with a cost of just $1.

American Airlines is the highest at 1,000 miles, United is at 800 if you have the United card, Southwest and Alaska is at 700. You can use the Barclay portal for 1,000 points worth $10 in travel.

Our Verdict

These offers come out periodically. You can even do both deals to get double rewards. Make yourself a note to cancel before the next charge if you don’t want the subscription to continue. From memory, you need to call in to cancel (unless you live in CA).

How long do you have to wait between these trials? I don’t see anything in there terms about this.

Awesome, Dots, thanks for the recommendation!

I’d rather keep my bank info private than my CC#….

Will privacy.com ever let people use their credit card? I also don’t feel comfortable giving my bank info to them.

Bank of America cardholders can use ShopSafe (https://www.bankofamerica.com/privacy/accounts-cards/shopsafe.go) and Capital One cardholders can use Eno (https://www.capitalone.com/applications/eno/).

Can I do 2x WSJ (Ms DJ and myself) via Lemoney and get 2X$9 MM?

Justin

Tried this twice in the past with WSJ and the miles never post. I can’t be bothered to ask for them. You might consider if it’s worth it to you.

It would help if you shared what portal you went through.

Personally, it’s always worked for me with United (about 10 times now over 3 years).

You’re right. Sorry, I wanted to refer to the American portal.

These guys will hound you by snail mail with offers to enroll again after cancellation. Just sent Baron’s a message after a year just to remove me from their mailing list

Don’t give your real address. I paid with left over visa gebit cards which just have zip code attached but no address

Sign up for digital subscription, and put in a fake address.

Are these digital subs or paper subs? Already have a 1-year paper delivery only sub I picked up for next to nothing, but it doesn’t include digital.

You can do digital.

I’d go for the Southwest Rapid Rewards points because you can’t extend WN points with a redemption. (I believe AA, AS, DL, and UA redemptions do extend the expiration date.)

George

SkyMiles don’t have an expiration date to begin with.

And if you’re redeeming miles just to keep accounts alive, you’re doing it wrong. There’s almost always a better (lower opportunity cost) way to keep it alive by earning. You don’t have to wait for this offer to come around, giving up hundreds of miles; just use the portal at some other time, and only lose a couple.

Good catch on DL. I was focusing on how a WN redemption, in contrast to the other airlines listed, doesn’t extend the expiration date. I should’ve left out DL.

I’m not sure where you thought I was advocating redemptions to prevent expiration. I think we’re making the same point, that spending $1 to earn a few hundred RR points for $1 is cost-effective, particularly when redemptions don’t forestall expiration on WN.

George
George

I read your comment as a suggestion to those thinking of burning miles to keep the account alive, not to those thinking that their (recent) redemptions would do so.

In any case, I still think it’s a bad deal to go for the WN offer over the others, unless you (1) have no interest in AA or UA whatsoever or (2) are targeting a WN redemption and need the miles.

Whether or not redemptions count is irrelevant. Forgoing 100-300 miles is worse than forgoing a handful of miles by opting to go through the WN portal for a (different) small purchase.

I’ve done these about 10x now.. including back in February(?). Can we just keep churning these offers over and over indefinitely?

George
George

I just did this with WSJ in February (UA portal) and cancelled at the end of April. Can I do it again now through the AA portal? Can I do it with Barron’s, but not WSJ?

Terri

I did the Barron’s in February and am just now doing the WSJ, but it seems like it has been working for others.

Which of these cashback portals have you guys used in the past for this deal that worked? I’ve only used the United portal in the past that works every time. But I’m thinking of trying a different portal.. maybe Lemoney? I’ve never even heard of this site before but $10 isn’t bad.. I also have a Barclay NFL card so was considering the 1,000 points ($10) too. Has anyone here used Lemoney or Barclay before with this deal and gotten points?

Best tip I picked up either here or on Reddit the last time this was around:

When you are ready to cancel, go into your online profile and change your state to California. Once you do that you can cancel online and save yourself the hard sell cancellation phone call.

Reminds me of relationship advice a co-worker dude likes to give out. When choosing between 2 attractive propositions…..DO BOTH! So I signed up for both offers. At 1.2 cents per mile, it’s $24 worth of miles for only $2.

w00t! In for both. 1400 AS for $2 hopefully!

700 for each shows pending in my AS shopping portal
