Greenville News fraudulent advertising - a scam
I paid for this publication and bought an entire year. Recently I can’t read articles as it prompts me that it is for subscribers only (I’m still well within my term).
All is good but the obits. Double names many times. Since we have grown so much I would like to suggest Names be followed by occupation. Example. John Smith: Painter We have many people here with same names. Sometimes We miss a death because of this. Shirley Henderson Rainey
There is no way to cancel your subscription or remove credit card information in the app once you subscribe. Repeated attempts to cancel subscription with customer service have gone unresolved. And unrelated to the app they also charge $5 extra for special editions. I am still not sure what these are, but $5 can be added to the subscription price weekly doubling the subscription price. Buyer beware- the paper is good but lack of customer service and functionality in the app could force you to pay for the paper in perpetuity.
Reliable, informative, easy to use
Added the app to my phone after renewing a subscription to the paper. Shortly thereafter, I began to receive notifications pertaining to breaking news. However, when I followed up and tried to read about these stories, the app indicated they were for subscribers only. Found the Already Subscriber/Restore Purchase link at the bottom of the app home page but it did nothing. At try the add for the print edition but this one isn’t any good.
The app is just the presentation of ads & clickbait that we expect from a Gannett property. It forgets who you are and repeatedly demands you buy a subscription when you already have one. The “newspaper” should be free. That is the value of the news and information it includes. $0.
as far as I can see there is no easy way to cancel your subscription. This is a dishonest and unethical way to run a business. When I do find out I will certainly go through the process.
