Just received my renewal for the N and O - $195 for 7 days for a year.
Last year I paid $128! I have canceled it for the time being as the paper is getting less and less - midweek the free cary paper is bigger than the N and O.

I pay a lot less for the WSJ Subscription and at least that has some news in it

What does anyone else pay per year?

I currently pay monthly on an auto-pay plan and pay $15 per month ($180 per year). If it weren't for the coupons on Sunday, I'd cancel. They more than cover the cost of a subscription. But as for the news, it's really light some days (Mondays in particular are awful) and most of it is from another source that I likely read somewhere the day before.

Stop getting the paper years ago. Use N&O online site and WRAL on line site for my news. Was tired of paying for a lot of paper I only put into the waste stream anyway.

Might want to try to get those coupons via online sites. Most are readily available as are all the circulars you find in the Sunday paper. Than one can print out ONLY the coupons one wants.

I keep hearing that, but despite all my efforts, I can't seem to find a relatively easy way to find those same coupons online. Is there an obvious site?

I too have been teetering on cancelling th eN&O over the past several years. They keep taking more and more of the actual content out and I come a little closer to cancelling each time. FInding a good coupon site that was not full of spam, scam and non working coupons would help.

Sitting down with my News and Disturber on Saturday and Sunday is a treat for me. I hate to give that up and reading from the computer just isn't the same to me. I have looked into just getting the weekend papers but it isn't that much more to get it every day. I'm not sure what we pay.

I think all newspapers (outside of a select few like WSJ) will not even be around in 5 years. That includes N&O, Chapel Hill Herald, and Durham Herald. They are definitely going the way of the dinosaur, and for good reason. Everything in them is old news by the time its printed and at your door. They are going the way of the dinosaur.

Newspaper? You mean to tell me you can still get news on paper?! Wow...next you'll tell me there's still those big buildings that are filled with books that you can read and even rent.

I had the Friday - Sunday but then they also jacked up the price! So I decided to drop it. I miss the Sunday paper but oh well. I was hoping they would offer me something better since I canceled but never heard anything. You would think the way things are and more people going online they would try better to keep customers. Shrug.
