You can also use airline miles for these types of things as well.

Yes. I get Barron's paper version for airline miles. One drawback is that it's probably supposed to include online access, but there's no straightforward way to get it. The information for online signup is not available when you get it for miles. It might be possible to call the sub department, but it's likely a huge hassle and they might not even come through with solution.

The other caveat is that Barron's (and WSJ) only allows new customers when ordering using miles. So you kinda have to swap to your significant other if you want to order using miles more than for single year.

Finally, order with miles can take up to 2 months to process. Yes, it has taken that long for one order I made. So you either have to reorder 2 months in advance - and then you might be getting 2 copies for quite a while if they come through fast. Or you order upon expiration and you don't get a copy for possibly 2 months.

Anyway, it is a possibility...  8)
