Rolling Stone -- Lifetime Subscription

Message Bookmarked

I was just looking at Rolling Stone's feature on "The Immortals" top 50 artists of all time (fodder for another thread) and I noticed that they offer a lifetime subscription for $99.

Is this new? Isn't this type of offer a cash-grab for organization desperate for money (why charity arts orgs often do it)?

fourteen years pass...

Just got a subscription renewal card in the mail--the old 24 issues a year plan was <$40, the new one for 12 issues is $90.

Good Luck With That!

Thread title sounds like a threat.

It kind of is. I don't have that deal, obviously, but thanks to some piggybacked Amazon freebie trial subs I got in '07, I've been a regular subscriber. I got a postcard today announcing the price hike, and that to not be charged, i have to unsubscribe either online or by phone by TOMORROW. Their customer service site is down rn, and there's at least a 20 minute wait on the phone just because of this shit.

I wager the print edition won't see out the year.

Rolling Stone magazine has been shit since i've been reading it (1987). Surely the only people left who care are publicists and desperate writers.

...and people who select waiting room reading material! They're The Real Rock Stars!
