2013 Herald Sun Uni Offer: $10 for 40 Weeks Delivery (Saving 97% Off RRP)

420

The 2013 version of the Herald Sun university subscription offer is now being offered. It seems that the mechanics works exactly the same as last year with Monday to Friday editions being delivered to the uni that you go to and Saturday and Sunday editions being home delivered.

The only change to what is offered is that there is NO 12 week summer delivery offer included this year which is a bummer, as it was a good point-of-difference to what The Age offers. However despite this, the deal is still good for the price that you pay.

    Cheaper than toilet paper.

    Fact: The Age used to also offer 12 week summer delivery offer. They also used to offer pick up from Uni, plus weekend delivery, for $20. But no longer. Setting aside the quality of the journalism, at least the Herald-Sun continues to present a very good offer to cash strapped students (as The Age also used to).

      The Age offers a 7-day digital e-edition uni subscription for $15 which is reasonable although I guess it's not great if you like to have a printed version. They also do a weekend home delivery + e-edition offer for $45 as well.

        Yeah but the digital version is rubbish - photo quality is terrible. Not sure what The Age is up to - their pricing is ridiculous across the board, the paper is thinner than ever daily, and readership numbers are down. It's like they WANT to fail.

    On a related note, I see the Fairfax papers have stopped print offers for tertiary students this year, digital subscriptions only. What a shame :(

    NO 12 week summer delivery offer

    Oh good… now I dont have to throw it out every day!

    Why my other half signed up to this last year I have no idea… the only time she opens it is for the Sunday magazine liftout.

    If not a student, just sign up and get the weekend papers delivered for $0.25/week or $0.125 per paper!

    Great for budding artists wanting to submit to Drawing Dicks on the Herald Sun.

    Odd the link picture shows 2013 but the page linked has 2012 -

    The "how it works' on the page has 2013 info …

    The page crashes when you try existing or new …

    Me thinks it's not ready for 2013 … O-week is a few weeks off anyways …

    •  

      Not sure, I was able to get to the new and existing pages fine.

      One thing I also noticed on the new subscriber page was that it still listed the Mon-Sun summer delivery choice in the form (it's divided into two $5 section which both have to be taken). Pretty sure that it's a mistake unless the 'How It Works' page made an error?

  •  

    Well I got in and it's not accepting CC for some reason - Not billed …

    Still think it's been worked on

    Any student offers for the AFR?

    Wait it says Mon-Fri for 40wks than below in the home delivery offer Mon-Sun 12wks??

    Just be VERY careful with this if you think you're going to be changing address at all over the next 12 months.

    I changed address in July and it took them three months and about five phone calls to correct the delivery on their system. When I asked if I would receive any compensation like perhaps a few extra weeks on the end I was told there is no compensation because I am a student.

    The twist/irony in the story is I was a Journalism student. Proudly graduated and definitely not seeking work with the terrible organisation that is News Limited.

    The Herald Sun is a newspaper in the sense McDonald's is a restaurant.

      And yes, I negged this. Anyone responsible for Andrew Bolt getting a paycheck or soapbox in general, even if this is below cost, should feel ashamed.

    what's the price for those who only want the weekend paper or essentially just the sunday paper delivered?

    • +4 votes

      $10 … if you're a student. Do the math (or has our education system got THAT bad?).

    Any offers for us in NSW?

    any offer for Syd Uni?

    Signed up again. Makes great firelighters ;)

  •  

    Well every year at uni they give this away for FREE. Free daily telegraph and Sunday sent to your door. Just gotta present the card they give to you in orientation week/ first week of uni. I've had it every year now! :)

  •  

    How about us in the Sunshine State??

  •  

    so if I got this last year and click on existing subscriber, where do I find my Subscriber ID?

  •  

    I just subscribed and it includes the 12 weeks delivery in summer (on top of weekend deliveries).

    •  

      I also just subscribed. Tried to continue the subscription from the old one but it didn't work. I called the 1800 number and the operator wanted to know how I knew about this offer as it has not yet been released or advertised. I didn't mention Ozbargain though.

      She suggested that I just subscribe as a new person, which I did online. $10 including 12 weeks delivery in summer.

      Great deal! Thanks.

  •  

    nawww…means i actually have to go to class to get it

  •  

    Just had a look at the site again, the 12 week summer delivery reference has now been removed from the order page, so it seems it's just the 40 weeks pick-up/weekend delivery that you'll get

    •  

      No, when I and a number of others signed up it clearly stated that the 12 summer home delivered weeks were part of the deal, I even took copies of the pages as proof.

      Therefore under contract law they are obliged to supply these as they made an offer and I accepted it in good faith. If they have now made a different offer then that is what you would be accepting. They cannot change or vary an already accepted offer without BOTH parties agreeing to vary it, and I do not agree.

        No, when I and a number of others signed up it clearly stated that the 12 summer home delivered weeks were part of the deal, I even took copies of the pages as proof.

        not in the terms and conditions - did you read them before accepting?

        •  

          The 'contract' includes all sections of the document part of which clearly stated on two separate instances that the 12 week summer period was included. This was also the section where you filled in your name and details. Hence binding.

          Look, the fact that it is only $10 for at least 40 weekends of papers (in most people's cases - those who signed up later than say mid day today, plus the bonus 12 weeks for those who signed up BEFORE midday), is still a good deal when you look at the cost per paper.

          Your choice - take it or leave it.

        •  

          the t+cs, which were always correct and never changed after midday, take primacy, especially as one has to proactively opt-in to accept them before purchase

          any inconsistencies could void the contract

        •  

          No, in law when inconsistencies are discovered the contract is judged 'as read'. I.e. what words appear are taken as part of the contract.

          The fact that the 12 week summer inclusion appeared twice on pages where we had to fill in our details, and that the options there were pre-ticked (by the Herald Sun) makes them part of the contract and over ride all other contradictory clauses, as these (the readily viewable ones) are the ones that the consumer immediately relies upon and agreed to. Contract Law 101.

          Ipso Facto - sine die

    Can anyone confirm if there's a collection point at RMIT's city campus? It seems there may've been for last yrs offer that wasn't updated on the offer website

    •  

      Read the list on the website. Oh, what the hell I am feeling generous … so, YES it is ' RMIT (Melbourne) - 124 LaTrobe St, Melbourne VIC 3000 ' direct from the site.

        Hmm let me rephrase the question. Can anyone confirm if there's a "collection point" at RMIT's city campus? It seems there may've been for last yrs offer that wasn't updated on the offer website
