Our Verdict

Same deal as the Wall Street Journal deal. Keep in mind you need to keep the subscription active for at least 45 days and if after 8 weeks you haven’t cancelled you’re automatically enrolled in a month by month subscription. Pretty sure you can only cancel by phone and it’s not the easiest subscription to cancel. Please make sure you set a reminder to cancel to avoid the ongoing fees unless you actually want the subscription (in which case I’d look for a better deal first) otherwise they win. I used to do deals like this a lot, but now I know there is a good chance I’ll be to lazy to sort it out properly so for 1,200 miles I’ll just give it a miss. If I needed the extra miles for a specific award then that would probably be enough to get me to do it. Still I know some readers love these deals and are better organized/more motivated than I so this one is for you.

Can you order it with a virtual account number (city or bofa) and then it doesn’t really matter if you cancel or not?


You probably could do it with a visa/master/Amex gift card. By the time the 45 days are up you would hopefully have drained the gift card.


Thanks. I signed up for 900 Alaska miles.


Is this is a good deal for 650 miles for United or should I wait for a better deal? Or have there been better ones? I just recently started to follow these kinds of deals a month ago. Thanks in advance.


Hi, need some advice. I hate calling to cancel subscriptions but I do like this deal. If I use a virtual account number with a $2 limit, will they be able to go after me after the trial period ends and charge me?
