Depend you know someone who has print edition, so you can just pay 2 dollar for the iPad PDF

If not you can share online only with someone but it's not cheap if both no print edition account.

Acty just realised Android version subscribed very pathetic, same as free version, only extended articles. Unlike iPad version, full as-is print version pdfs. .Really not worth Android subscription.

PC one is their own flash-based reader, actual print version. Function much like a zoomable PDF-reader, called FV Express, which can be loaded and read offline. Not too bad.

Technically, 4 persons can share $26+$2 delivery plan= $7 each. 1 take print, 1 take desktop, 2 take iPad version. (Forget hopeless Android version). No need spend too much on propaganda papers.

OT abit.. im currently on a print only subscription paying $26.xx monthly on giro.. so lets say i wanna add $2 more for print + ipad, i'm require to pay upfront $28.xx..

The question is, they just deducted from giro on 18th this month.. so if i pay the $28.xx now via paypal, it would be for next month? or will the bill cycle restart? if so, what will happen to the $26.xx that was deducted few days ago?

i read the faq but i don't really understand..
B) I am making monthly payment for my subscription fee.
Yes, you can enjoy The Straits Times All-in-One Package by adding SGD2/SGD4 per month. The monthly subscription fee of SGD26.65/SGD28.65* will be charged to the credit card that you have authorized SPH to charge the existing print subscription fee. This charge will supersede your previous payment arrangements.

If you are currently paying your monthly subscription fee through GIRO, Internet Banking, cheque, etc, you will have to charge the monthly subscription fee of SGD26.65/SGD28.65* to a credit card in order to enjoy The Straits Times All-in-One Package and this charge will supersede your previous payment arrangements.

Please note that the subscription fee for the All-in-One package will be on a prepayment basis, as SPH is in the process of converting all newspaper subscription payments from post- to pre-payment. As such, the first charge for the new All-in-One Package will be reflected along with any unbilled print subscription amount.
Thanks

Hi, I'm looking for someone to share the straits times subscription with. You take the physical papers, I take the IPad subscription.

Since 2 iPads can login at same time, you can take the papers + 1 iPad sub. I will just need one iPad sub. We will share the costs.

Pls contact me at 96444005.

Thanks
How much is the subscription?

based on trust. On mobile devices, u can see the other login device, and can logout each other's devices. (That's provided u can login in the 1St place).

If no integrity,then lechay. Have to call the other party to logout his one extra device.

trust ... integrity ... sharing a subscription ...

Can find all three together?

Ahem ... the company that owns HWZ also owns the Straits Times
