I got an email from WSJ this evening that my account is created and had the instructions to create the online setup. I did the online setup.
How long does it take for the paper to show up near the door?
It says the expiry as 2/28. How soon should I subscribe through RG/RS to extend it? Can it go on indefinitely so that I can access the WSJ free?
I "agreed" to the terms and conditions which said something like auto-renewal till I cancel. Does it matter here since WSJ doesnt have my credit card on file?
Will they send a bill in Feb or so that can be ignored?
When I first started WSJ (and started some family members on it too), we all got it within about 10 days (some sooner). But that was just our experience, some folks here at SD's have reported it taking longer than that to receive their first issue.
I've had good luck personally with extending my WSJ sub by periodically signing up again via RG (and now RS) for new subs. Even though it says for "new subs only", I haven't had a problem with my sub extending. I've been getting it for years this way, but others here at SD's have indicated it has not worked that way for them. YMMV
I hate auto-renew. LOL So even though they don't have your cc on file, I would email/call/live chat with customer service at WSJ in a few weeks and just tell them you'd like to cancel the auto-renew, but you still want to receive all the issues in your term. It shouldn't be a problem.
If you don't cancel it - I don't know that I would 'ignore' the bills they will send you...you DID agree to the auto-renew etc That's just me though. I would email/call/live chat with customer service at WSJ when the bill arrived, and cancel.
