THERE’S never been a time in our recent history where the need for accurate and up to date information has been so critical.
With the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe, authorities have made major announcements affecting everyone’s lives almost daily, sometimes hourly.
You cannot rely on your social media feed or friends. You need stories written by journalists using trusted sources and experts – delivered to you as they happen.
Our journalists are dedicated to finding the stories that really matter – as well as the ones that will give you a laugh and lift your day.
As a news organisation, we believe in giving people the information they need. And we know that with the current economic climate, money can be tight.
That’s why we’re launching our best introductory digital subscription offer – just $1 for the first 28 days. If you want your local paper delivered as well, it’s a $1 a day for the first 8 weeks.
Not only does that give you access to the best local stories – all of our premium content – but also the best stories from The Courier-Mail, and major sites like the Daily Telegraph, Melbourne’s Herald-Sun and other regional titles from the Cairns Post to the Gold Coast Bulletin.
Over the next 28 days, we’re keen to show you why it pays to be in the know.
You’ll be the first to hear about business openings and closures; what’s going in our local courts and council, new development projects, job opportunities, as well as the best guide to local events and community happenings.
Each day, as news happens locally, you will be sent breaking news alerts and alerts via our app. Make sure you sign up for notifications.
We also provide regular local newsletters as well as a special coronavirus newsletter around lunchtime to let you know what’s happened that morning.
As well as breaking news, we are providing stories from a special new series called Hibernation: Your coronavirus guide to daily life.
It includes great advice on what to cook, what to watch, what to listen to, and how to deal with the practical, emotional and financial challenges we all now face.
ENJOY OUR DIGITAL EDITION AND APP
Your subscription also gives you access to the full digital edition of the paper – so you can read it just as you would the printed version.
That means you can sit back with your favourite tablet and flip through the paper at your leisure.
You also get access to our app where you can follow topics of interest to ensure that when new articles are published you are notified about them.
Just go to the Apple app store or Google Play for Android devices and search for your local newspaper name and download the app on your phone or tablet.
A morning and afternoon newsletter will ensure you’re up to date with the best of our local stories while breaking news and big local stories will be sent via alerts.
As a digital subscriber, you will also enjoy access to the +Rewards program via The Courier-Mail in Queensland or The Daily Telegraph in New South Wales.
There you can enjoy free magazine, movie and book offers as well as special deals. Updated monthly, check out what’s available exclusively here – you must be an eligible subscriber to redeem and access these offers.
Your full digital subscription gives you full access to the best news and sports columnists in the country, as well as great advice on making the most of your money and getting healthier and happier in 2020.
It’s without doubt the best $1 you’ll spend all year.
