I all most always have problems accessing my ongoing subscription to the paper. I enter the my account url and who knows where it will take me. I just signed in again and it has taken me to the search engine for subscribing. Some times when I access the emails that are sent to me it sends me to make a subscription. I just got notice thanking me for my monthly payment and I can't even get to the paper. If this type of problem continues I will be canceling my subscription very soon.
I tried to sign up for an introductory offer for digital access only, 7 days a week for $0.99 for 1st month, $9.95 a month thereafter. It would not let me complete the process. The button showed a red icon indicating not valid. I can't push it. I tried phoning and none of the people I talked with understood the problem. In addition, they would not even acknowledge the introductory rate. I was told they could not authorize the rate offered. So, it appears you (1) Have a faulty webpage or (2) your staff is incompetent or (3) you are guilty of fraudulent advertising.
The bottom line is that your introductory rate is not available by phone or online.

You are delivering a Sunday newspaper (hard copy) to my door every Sunday for the past two months. I did NOT request nor ever order this service. I am requesting you STOP delivering this paper to me. I am throwing it away immediately, but it is a nuisance. It is also a security threat as people and burglars can see if I am gone for any extended period. Contact me for my street address on this delivery. Email: [protected]@gmail.com
I am a long time San Jose Mercury News customer. I am 91 years old semi disabled, have requested to have my Sunday paper delivered on my front porch (which has an easy access to). I have made numerous complaints re: this issue (my records will verify this}. there was a time (a year or so ago I cancelled for this reason).I came back with the same request, for a time my request was granted. Now, for some reason, the carrier will not comply. i have called each week, have been assured carrier would be notified.
No avail.Now, the past two Sundays the paper has been dropped at the end of my driveway on the curb.!!! maybe you can explain the reason for this. I do not want to cancel...I have called and the young peronnel have assured me they would send message to carrier of my request. nothing has changed. please e mail me that this complaint will be looked into, and send me the results. I have been a San Jose MercuryNews customer for over 50 years. e mail:[protected]@aol.com thank you for your attention to this matter. Lorraine Daste
I can only afford the sunday paper and I really look forward to receiving it each sunday. As it was missing today I called you and was told it was a vacation hold or something like that, well what the H--- does that mean and I would like my paper as soon as possible. I have been a long time subscriber to the San Jose Mercury and always paid my bill on time so I think my paper should be on time.
Thank you Jackie Richardson.
I am writing on behalf of my neighbor who is in his early 80s. He has been a subscriber for years and loves his morning paper and has been very grateful to have it delivered to his front door.
Problem. His morning paper is consistently ending up a couple of houses away. Sometimes under a neighbor's car but never in front of my neighbor's actual house.
Why this is a problem: 1) my neighbor's has increasing sever heart failure. Very hard for him to walk a distance to get his morning paper. 2) I travel for work and am often gone so cannot consistently pick up paper for him. Solution: deliver the paper to his front porch. Not so difficult. Just toss the paper with a little more heft, for goodness sake!
Please read all the complaints from the last month unresolved through today. I am tired calling every day only to hear I am sorry from complaint taker. I have never received a replacement paper.Wait on the phone 30 to 40 minutes. Vic and Darlene Cardoza. 831.661.5979. Simple to resolve paper deliver/Covered, I pay everything is ok. please have a Supervisor call us and resolve once and for all.
I was told at a sporting event that I was signing up for the newspaper for $14.95 per month. They were giving away a team blanket that I liked. I specifically asked if I could cancel right away, and he did tell me I could adding, "We hope to see you keep it at least two weeks to pay for the cost of the blanket."
No confirmation, and no newspaper was ever delivered.
After 2 months I called to get refund - It is their policy not to issue refunds. I feel like this is a total unethical scam; bait and switch.
On the phone I was told I have "online only" subscription (was told I was getting the paper delivered) for minimum 5 months (Was told I could cancel at any time) for a cost of $14.95 per month. For 14.95? This ain't Netflix.
I was told by Melissa the Supervisor that my case would be sent to billing, and they would make a decision. When asked when I would be notified of this decision, I was told that they do not contact anyone with the decision. (I know how this will go).
I am forced to give them my money for a service I will never receive, and at this point a service I done even want. HELP! They have me by my sensitive areas!
We signed up for the paper with a kid raising money for college almost 2 years ago. We received the paper for a couple months and then it stopped coming. We have been charged 2x per month (which is a double charge!) for over a year for the paper and have not received a single paper after the initial 3 months! I have tried to call numerous times but was placed on hold so long I could no longer stay on the phone, tried to have you call back instead of staying on hold but never received a call or was disconnected so that I was never able to get through to cancel our subscription. We have paid a lot of money for no product.
We like to support local news organizations but this has been a complete scam. I see that we are by no means the only victims of this scam as well. We would like a refund for the past year of our payments to you. The account is under Eric Stimpson [protected] Stierlin Rd Apt 9).
and refuse to stop! no matter how many times I call and complain.
My guess is 1, they want more crime, say you are going on vacation, thieves will know no one is home. Cowabunga $$!
guess number 2: they tell the liquor companies and whatnot, they have an exaggerated number of subscribers, so they get more money for adds.
(3) As the kids say, I am being trolled. ha ha.
(4) Fraud, corruption. Salesmen are getting bonuses by making up "sales."
(5) absolutely, an intentional effort to INCREASE our carbon footprint unnecessary, e.g., cut down more trees, melt more ice caps, increase the ozone level and decrease world oxygen. Even if I liked the Merc News, in the past 15-20 years, couldn't I more efficiently read it online???? Why throw garbage under my front lawn sprinkler?
I requested -- in 2018 --to cancel my paper delivery subscription because of the high cost (>$600/y).
The San Jose Mercury News informed me that I was charged for 1y and the subscription cannot be cancelled with prorated refund. They stated this issue was nonnegotiable. I directed them not to renew me in 2019.
I recently attempted to sign up for digital only access at $9.99 / mo.
The Mercury News informed me that they continued to send the paper to me even after the paper delivery subscription expired, and I owe them $150. They informed me that I must pay this before digital access could occur, and their position is nonnegotiable.
In my opinion, the position of this company in both cases that I must pay for a service I do not want is unethical, and treating a more than 10y customer with a response that the issues are nonnegotiable is appalling, especially considering that I was attempting to continue a customer relationship with the San Jose Mercury News.
I subscribed to SJMN online for yearly subscription in October 2018. I got the confirmation email with the order details. In April 2019, suddenly the paper deliveries stopped. When I contacted the customer service, I was told that, though, they have taken the money for annual subscription in October 2018, they have applied it for some other balance which I am not aware and never asked for any deliveries. The customer service acknowledged that what they did was without my knowledge and maybe illegal but they did not help me correct the record. I am trying to dispute this through my credit card company and will see what happens. But try to stay clear of SJMN and don't get fooled by their online subscription sign up. They will take your money and not provide you the services.
For the second time in three weeks I have found my Mercury news under my pickup transmission which forced me...
For two weeks in a row the tv guide has not been in the sunday paper. Last weekend I went to several locations and checked over 50 papers, no tv guide.
Monday I called customer service. After I explained how I spent extra gas and time and paying for two papers, there was no offer to make it right for a regular customer.
As a retired person that still reads the paper, and depends on the sports section in the tv guide, this is a drag to deal with.
The complaint has been investigated and resolved to the customer's satisfaction.
