The Economist Is Doing a 49%-Off Groupon Deal Today

$127 51-Issue Subscription is Briefly On Sale for $65

By Published on .

Yesterday Ad Age Media Editor Nat Ives announced that The Economist once again made our annual magazine A-List. (Check out Monday's issue of Ad Age -- online Sunday night -- for the full A-List package.) If you're not an Economist subscriber because you're too cheap to be an Economist subscriber (one year runs $127), you're (briefly) in luck. In today's installment of the MediaWorks Media Deal -- our very occasional look at notable discounted offers for media we like -- you can grab a 51-issue Economist print subscription for $65 (49% off) or a 51-issue digital subscription for $51 (54% off).

The subs are being offered through Groupon in D.C. -- but anyone with a U.S. mailing address can take advantage of the offer. As of this writing there are nine hours left to buy. So far, 587 people have bought print subs and 102 have opted for digital. (That's more than five to one for print.)
