As of Tuesday, February 23, 2016
Our hard-working team of sales kids has hit the streets for the 2016 Kids Subscription Contest, and chances are one will be knocking at or calling your house soon, if they haven’t already.
But though these 15 kids have gotten a week’s head start, there is still time to make some serious money before the contest ends March 12, in case you know a 10- to 16-year-old who thought it was too late to join up or couldn’t quite decide.
Late sign-ups are being accepted; just come by our office at 419 State St. and be ready for a picture! Our doors will be open until 6 p.m. Monday through Friday to help with that or to answer questions.
If you are due to renew your subscription in the next few months, don’t forget that you can help a sales kid by writing his or her name on your renewal card before March 12. To sweeten the deal, each week between now and then there will be a drawing from that week’s new and renewed subscriptions, for a $100 gift card.
If you are not currently a subscriber, check it out: With newsstand prices now at $1 per copy, subscriptions are a better deal than ever – subscribers save more than 50 percent off that price. We service Hood River County, The Dalles, Stevenson, White Salmon, Trout Lake and Lyle (and other communities within a 25-mile radius) for the low price of $42 per year ($36 for seniors ages 65 and older). New subscribers are also eligible for a complimentary Legacy book, a $20 value.
We can now accept credit card payment online (hoodrivernews.com/subscribe; though there is currently no field for specifying a sales kid so you would need to either call or email firstname.lastname@example.org right away to make sure your favorite kiddo receives credit).
The campaign will be over before you know it, so save some money and help a sales kid earn some!
