Star Tribune offers free e-edition for a week

Despite getting all but 2 percent of their papers delivered on a monstrously snowy Sunday, Star Tribune officials have decided to spiff the entire world by offering their e-edition free for a week.

The e-edition is digital replica of the print edition; I’m a fan, though scrolling on a screen doesn’t replace print. You can check out my review here.

The freebie also serves as a nice test run for potential customers; the Strib has worked diligently to get subscribers to try the e-edition for a few extra bucks. (Five bucks in my case.) To check it out, go here and type in “guest” and “password.”

Update: The Strib is arguably a little slow off the mark. The Pioneer Press, which said it had a 93.5 percent delivery record Sunday, offered a free e-edition that same day — more timely for frustrated subscribers. However, the PP is back behind the pay wall now.

    How can we get the e-edition without having to throw away a rubber-banded vestige of the 2nd millennium every day?

    I feel pretty special being part of the unlucky 2 percent. Didn’t get my Saturday paper either. I’m skeptical of their delivery claim.

    Me too, Robert. Have not seen the Sunday Star Trib at my door.
