Save on web access with ‘coupon code’

    Things are changing dramatically at Three Rivers Publishing this week. For the first time in our history, we will begin charging for “premium content” on our website. The change happens Friday.


    Why charge for our website? Good journalism is expensive!
    Three Rivers Publishing has 11 people who produce content for our website. Nearly 100 percent of what they write can only be found in our newspapers and at www.threeriverspublishing.com. None of them work for free.
    Every week we ask our newspaper readers and advertisers to help pay for the costs to produce and deliver our papers. For years, however, we have provided much of the news we produce to our website visitors free of charge. Somehow, that just doesn’t seem fair…and now that’s going to change.
    As of Friday, when you visit our website you will be able to see the home page, obituaries, death notices, classifieds and our “About Us” page. When you attempt to read news, sports, editorials or letters to the editor, however, you will be asked to become a registered member.
    If you are a current subscriber (you get your paper in the mail each week), you will be able to get all our premium content for less than $1 per month. When you join, just make sure you use the coupon code on your mailing label (see example below) and you will save 66 percent off our regular website prices.
    If you’re not a subscriber to one of our papers, then you can get full access to all of our premium content, which is updated daily, for $17.50 for six months or $30 for a year. Or for $25 for six months or $40 per year, you can also get full website access and the electronic editions of all four of our newspapers. Those rates are also discounted for our current subscribers using the coupon code.
    If you’re unfamiliar with our E-editions, all of our newspapers are available in their entirety on our website every week. And, you can find them there before the papers actually hit the street on Wednesday afternoon. With an E-edition subscription, there is no more waiting for your paper to arrive in the mail, or no having to run out and get the paper every week! Membership also gives you complete access to all of our searchable archives on the website.
    You should also be aware that you can fully customize the home page of the website to only display the news that’s most important to you. By clicking on the “Settings” button to the right of the “News” banner, you can choose which sections appear on the home page and how they appear. After making your selections, just be sure and click on the “save” button at the bottom of the box. Now matter how you customize your home page, all of the news and sports will still be available under the main menu at the top of the page.
    Make sure you don’t miss any important news by signing up for full access to our premium content today. Registration information can be found near the top right side of the website, immediately under the search feature.
    You can subscribe using PayPal or your credit or debit card. Just remember to use your Coupon Code on your mailing label to take 66 percent off our standard web subscription or website and E-edition subscription.
    Now you can turn your weekly newspaper into a daily newspaper with a membership to www.threeriverspublishing.com. We’re confident that you will find our website to be a great value…as well as a great source for all the news and sports that’s important to you.
