#1. The WSJ Student Discount
At wsj.com there is a special offer just for students. This promotion changes seasonally but usually offers students two subscription options: “Student Digital” or “Student Print & Digital Pack.”
Here’s how the how much the WSJ student subscription costs:
- $1 for 15 weeks – After the promotion ends you’ll continue to get the student rate of the WSJ for $4-10 per month
- $49 for 1 year – If you pay for a year’s subscription upfront you’ll get a better long-term deal. After the initial year ends your subscription continues at the student or educator rate of $4+ per month
- $1 for 2 Months – If available, this special gives you a 2-month WSJ Digital subscription for $1
