Hello!  I want to send my son a newspaper so he knows what is going on in the world.  He is Ad Seg and alone without communication except weekly visit.  I want to send him a newspaper.  It is incredibly expensive to mail it; but is there a local newspaper that will deliver to unit.  Fort Worth did that at Tarrant county and it was not expensive; but to have it mailed was over $200.  That is crazy!

THANKS!! :)

Yes, newspapers are expensive; but a lifesaver for someone in prison to stay in touch with the world out here.

Right now you can get a 3 months subscription for USA Today for $25, if he would like that. After that the price goes up, but maybe you can look for another offer in the meantime.

I would get that for Hubby, but they don't allow overseas billing addresses!

They did it for me. I couldn't do it online. The online form doesn't allow it, but if you call them and explain the situation, they can do it. That was my experience anyhow. It's run without a hitch for a couple of years now.
Maybe try again? :)

I always wonder why US websites do that though, they must lose a lot of money with people wanting to get subscriptions for family overseas.

I'll give them a call next week :)

Yes, I wonder the same thing. Maybe there just isn't enough demand, I dont know..
I'm sure it's quite easy to program the form so that billing and delivery address are different. Even if they ARE in different countries.
