This is a huge savings off the regular price and much better than Barron's regular new subscriber specials.

This Is a actually good deal and much better than their more recent new subs offerings. Almost time for a swap renewal and use this for the next two years. With sub trick of course.

I've been trying to find a way to read their articles for free, but seems legit is the only way.....still searching for a discount on Bloomberg.com

Yeah, it used to be a trivial exercise of copy pasting the URL into google to get around the paywall.. easy but cumbersome. For years now that hasn't worked. For 50$ which usually covers 2 years for me (still a tiny hack) I'm really okay paying basically 2$ a month to be able to have it ON my devices, in their app, save articles, share articles etc.. anytime anywhere.

I've read about some new hacks, like the google one of the past where one can spoof proxy for google fiber or Starbucks WIFI hotspot access, and get around the paywall again - for WSJ and others and since is the DJones, it apparently works. But at this point in time that type of hoop isn't worth it for me. I've gotten more actionable info from my subs to Barrons in the past 20-30 years than I ever paid for them so I'm fine with that, I've just never been fine with says 200-300$ a year for it. Even though I'm sure I've made 10X on an annual basis off the intel. Historically, it was more people like Mike Santoli and his column, now he's more on other platforms and CNBC but the insight is still just as quality.

What's the sub trick? Would be interested in getting a two year subscription.

They have a $1.99 per month trial for 3 months. Subscribe...Cancel...Resubscribe with different info. Rinse and repeat is most likely how that's done

Agree, Barron's has given me a lot of good info on stocks and they still have good content. I know they have changes some of the writers but the whole is still valuable. Just can't pay $200 or above.

FYI for others, they usually have a 10 week trial for $10 or so and if you let that expire, you'll get offers in the mail for 26 weeks for $26. If they offer the $50ish offer for a year, I tend to take it and let that expire until I can get another $50s offer.

They also have a new podcast that's good.

Same. Doing the $1.99 a month trial right now, but that only lasts for 3 months.

The only way to read the magazine or newspapers free legit is at your local Library. Some even have online access to magazines but rarely WSJ or Barrons.

sign up for a lexis nexis service or use from your broker such as fidelity or thinkorswim and you'd have access to news for free. - at least most of it.

Does anyone know how to gift this subscription to someone? It looks like I can have a separate billing and delivery address (which is great), but I don't see how to allow the recipient to the digital portion, short of sharing login information.

For existing customer that's overpaying on sub, how do I get in on this? Do I need to cancel my existing sub and wait before signing up for this? Or just order a second sub under a different name, then cancel my existing sub?

Did anyone actually do this to see that it's not a scam? It said that I should be getting an email soon after I submitted the payment...but not sure I even provided it?

"Thank you for your subscription to Barron's
You will receive an email shortly that will confirm your order and provide details about our most popular pages and features."

*****UPDATE
JUST KIDDING. GOT THE VERIFICATION EMAIL.
