How do I determine if I can receive The News & Observer home delivery?
here and enter the zip code of your home delivery address. If local home delivery is available in your area
the applicable subscription rates will be displayed. Please be advised that while newspaper subscription prices are published
for your zipcode there is a very slight chance that your exact address is not serviced by The News & Observer. This situation
occurs mainly in very rural areas. Also, if your address is a Post Office Box number, the newspaper cannot be delivered to your address.
What if my address doesn't qualify for home delivery, can I still
News & Observer subscriptions are not available for every address. If your address
doesn’t qualify for home delivery, News & Observer customer service representatives
can help determine what delivery options are available. Standard home delivery is not available to Post Office Boxes
nor detention facilities (prisons, jails, correctional institutions.) However, there are cases where mail delivery might be
available to your address. If so, then it is typical that the delivery price will be slightly to significantly higher than the
discounted newspaper subscription prices we are displaying on this website.
Is my personal information safe?
Yes. Any personal information we
receive from you is used only to provide the highest quality
home delivery service available. All sensitive information such as
credit cards or login information is encrypted for secure transmission. Our newspaper subscription website is monitored continuously by such
renowned companies as McAfee and Verisign for security from any third parties, and the seals of these agencies are found
in the footer on our website and the order page at checkout. See our
privacy statement for more details about the use of all information that you provide.
Can News & Observer subscriptions be paid by credit card?
Yes. You can charge your subscription on most
major credit cards, such as Visa and MasterCard. Simply enter your
credit card information on our secure order form. Your credit card will be charged for the amount of the subscription.
Nothing could be more convenient.
What should I expect from News & Observer Customer Service?
You should expect responsive customer care that allows you to review and
update your delivery and billing information, stop delivery of your newspaper when you're
away, discover special promotions and notify the The News & Observer of any questions or comments you have.
By what time should I expect the paper to be delivered?
In most areas, the paper will be delivered by 6:30 AM on weekdays, and 7:00 AM on Sundays. Of course, we strive to maintain these guidelines as much as possible, however,
there are always extenuating circumstances, such as inclement weather, that might cause your newspaper delivery to be delayed.
If your paper does not come on a scheduled delivery date, please contact The News & Observer as soon as possible to receive credit.
When will The News & Observer home delivery start?
time to start delivery on a new order varies by area. In most areas, new orders begin within 3 to 5 days
after the order request is received. Your expected start date will be
shown on the confirmation screen after you place an order. If you have any questions about your start date, or if your newspaper
subscription does not begin as scheduled on the first day, please contact the The News & Observer, so that we can send a reminder
notification to the delivery carrier in your area.
Does my The News & Observer subscription include the Classified Ads section?
What kinds of merchandise and services are available?
Classifieds in the The News & Observer list real estate, auctions, pets, products and services for sale and much more. In addition, the The News & Observer also publishes special automotive and jobs sections where readers can browse popular automotive and job-related listings.
