Newsdaysubscription

in july my billing changed to every 8 weeks. I got another bill yesterday. I said to myself "what again"? I checked all my last 4 bills Each one is for 8 weeks The first bill has the period of 8 weeks. The next bill the billing is for 8 weeks but starting a week before the last period ends making only seven weeks. This has happened on the last 4 bills. I have been cheated. Check you last bills if you are on an 8 week cycle. I will bet that you are being cheated as well. I cannot believe that they can be this dishonest

    NewsdayPromotion fraud

    As I entered my local Amityville Stop n' Shop I was stopped by a man at a desk set up by the entrance. He offered me a 'free, no commitment'trial subscription to Newsday and that if I did I would be entered to win a raffle for a one hundred dollar gift card to Stop n' Shop. I asked several times if it was really free, if I would have any responsibilty to them, etc and I was told explicitly that it was totally free with no strings attatched. I then signed what I was told was a 'sign up sheet'. Fast forward about 6 months later I get a collections letter stating that I owe Newsday $63.00 for my 'free trial'. I call them up and tell them what happened and they tell me that even though I was flat out lied to, I was still obligated to pay them as I had signed a 'contract' (ie 'sign up sheet' according to the guy that dragged me into this.) They were very rude, uncaring, and acted as if they had a script to handle the situation (i've seen similar complaints about this promotion so i'm sure i wasn't the only one calling). I'm a college student and can't just come up with this kind of money out of nowhere, I was just excited about the possibility of $100 to buy food. I'm losing $63 and now my credit is damaged due to this bill that I should never have been charged going to collections (I never received any warnings from Newsday prior to the collection bill.)

        Newsday is terrible They set u a stand at Citi Field $40 for 2 months .So i call them to get a newspaper that wasnt delivered. I asked for re delivery and was told they cant deliver after 10am i called 11am. I asked to cancel my subscription because you didnt deliver the paper They said i now have a 1yr subscription because of the promotion. I said i never got a contract for a year subscription and where is it written that you cant get a redeliver after 10am
        all i was asking for is a newspaper for that day . There solution is to deliver the paper the next day..Who wants yesterdays paper the next day. I spoke to a Miss Dixon who wasnt very helpfull
