Q: If I go on vacation how will I temporarily suspend delivery of my newspaper?

Login and proceed to Delivery Options > Vacation Holds to notify us of your vacation stop and restart dates. If you notify us in advance, we will suspend delivery of your newspaper while you are away. Here are some other options:

  • Vacation Pack: We can have your carrier hold your papers while you are away and deliver all of them upon your return and resume delivery. (We must limit this to two weeks, however.)
  • Vacation Stop with NIE Donation: You can donate the value of your newspapers to our Newspapers in Education (NIE) program, which provides funding which allows us to provide educators with copies of the newspaper (in print or digital replica) to use in the classroom.
  • Vacation Will Call: Not sure when you will return? No problem. We can suspend your service until you contact us to resume delivery.

Q: Is it necessary to call to restart my subscription after it has been temporarily suspended?

If you provide a restart date when you suspend delivery, you do not need to call again to restart your delivery. However, if the restart date has changed, or was not provided when the account was suspended, you will need to speak to a customer service representative at 800-843-4372.

Q: How do I report a problem with my newspaper delivery?

Log in and Delivery Options > Delivery Feedback if your newspaper is missing, damaged or incomplete. Or you may call Customer Service at 800-843-4372. Your account will be credited for that day's service if redelivery is unavailable. Most customers can expect newspaper delivery by 6:00 am Monday-Friday and by 7:30 am on weekends.
