Hey San Antonians, we don't really need the paper, but we do like to save money with coupons. Anyone know which one has the best coupons in town? Thanks!

San Antonio Express-News has been the only newspaper in San Antonio for many years now. Why not just subscribe to weekend service?

The weekend only service is only a few bucks less than the 7-day service. If you like to enjoy the paper every morning, might as well get it everyday.

While on the topic, does anyone else see newspapers becoming obsolete in the next 5-10 years?

Never. I've wondered that, too, but really, I don't think 'we' or 'they' are going to give up the hard copy newspaper, ever ever ever.....
Not sure why I believe so strongly about that, I can't articulate it, but I just don't think it's going to happen.... not in the next 5-10 years....

maybe 25 - 40 years..... but nope, not anytime soon.....

5-10 years? Did you mean weeks? Or days?
I think the Doc sums it up...they are only good for coupons now.

We got the weekend service and they gave us the daily, I bring them into work and put them in the break room(60 people or so) and some days it doesn't even get looked at.

Its just so much easier to read the same stuff on the internet. It just seems like I hear something (or better yet read on the internet) about print media downsizing/laying off people do to a decrease in customer base.

Just get the Sunday service, they'll call a month later and offer the weekend service for free. Then call another month later and offer daily for free too. I pay for one paper and seem to get them all. Its the SAEN's way to artificially inflate circulation and charge more for ad space...

The Weekender that comes out in Friday's paper is actually pretty nice. It tells you where everything is happening, when, and how much it costs. Yes, you can get all that online usually, but it's nice to have the print version to take along in the car.

I'm on the computer so much at work, school, or messing around (like now) that I really enjoy sitting down and browsing through the pages of the paper.

Besides, what else is there to do while sitting on the john?
