Cooks Illustrated Online - is there a Magazine Subscriber Discount?

madeliner Aug 27, 2011 12:33 PM

Hi I subscribe to CI and just got my last issue-there is an offer in there to get online access for a discount but they don't say what the discount is (nice huh?)

Anyone know the price for the website if you are a print subsciber?

I am also a little worried since I didn't renew my paper subscription they will zap me with a higher price because I let the paper subscription lapse

Otherwise I have a link to get 1 year for $17.95

What is the yearly cost for "others" anyway? I googled and saw $34.00 or so which is WAY too much for access to a website.

Sorry so many ?s

Any responses appreciated

    This has been brought up many times on the board. I found the following links for you:

    http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/614024 -this one states the normal online price is 34.95 but that was in 09 and costs may have gone up

      Thanks for those links! :) appreciate that.

      I went ahead and signed up for the trial before checking back here-impulsive - now I regret it.

      I tried to look for recipes and saw this "editors choice" nonsense-I should have known better with Cook's, I''ll save a few recipes but will definitely cancel.

      hope I don't have any difficulty canceling before the trial is over

        The search engine on this site is pitifully inadequate. The way we've learned to do searches is with Google. Type "Chowhound" and then what you're searching for. FYI.
