Comments on: FT.com’s price hike http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/02/09/ft-coms-price-hike/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: KTodd http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/02/09/ft-coms-price-hike/comment-page-1/#comment-11894 Wed, 10 Feb 2010 04:46:13 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=2537#comment-11894 I think you could probably maintain a separate blog about the bizarre behavior of the FT’s online policies. Last year they put on a promotion for university students that allowed me a year’s worth of premium online content in exchange for becoming a “fan” of FT on facebook. Of course, when the year’s worth of free content was up and I was faced with the prospect of shelling out around $100 per year on top of my $200 yearly print subscription, I decided to take my web-news needs elsewhere. I would be interested to see how many print subscribers actually pay the additional fee for the online subscription.

As a Kindle subscriber to the The Financial Times, you might like to know of a price change. ffective February 6th, 2010 the price of The Financial Times has changed to $14.99/month for new subscribers.

As an existing subscriber to The Financial Times you will continue to be billed at the previous rate of $9.99/month for one more year (until February 6th, 2011) after which you will be billed at the monthly rate then in effect.
