I go to the NYTimes Book Review every day and found I needed a subscription. I had no idea what the cost would be and was taken aback to find it was $200. Then a week or so later, while wrestling over the $200 fee, I discovered an education rate, requiring an email ending in .edu, which I have.
The discounted rate is $90 a year. I decided to do it. That's about 25 cents a day, not bad.
