It’s not every day you hear about a 6th Grader asking for a subscription to The Wall Street Journal. While most kids his age were reading Tiger Beat or Motor Trend, Mike our Coworkaholic in Chief preferred paging through the WSJ’s Marketplace, Personal Journal or Off Duty sections.
Earning Points & Miles from your WSJ Subscription
Always on the hunt for new ways to earn points and miles, back in the Fall of 2018, Mike shared an easy (and cheap) way to score 1,200 American Airlines AAdvantage Miles. While he signed up for a new subscription with a different email (after cancelling an old account) he noticed there was relatively new program called WSJ+.
WSJ+ is a premium benefits program for any Wall Street Journal Subscriber. If you’re a regular reader, you’ll certainly enjoy invites to exclusive events, savings on great products and more. All you need to do is activate your WSJ+ membership by signing in with your WSJ subscription log in.
To be eligible, you must have a current subscription to The Wall Street Journal with digital access. You must also have activated the digital portion of your membership with a registered account on WSJ.com. There are a limited number of groups who are ineligible. These groups include: Corporate Print Only, Mobile Only, Weekend Only, Group Access, Professor Sampling and Partnerships.
WSJ+ Invites and Inspiration
As a WSJ+ member, you’ll receive invites to exclusive events like their Chef’s Table series. Hosted in Chicago, Philadelphia and Los Angeles, each experience brought together top chefs, food critics and even James Bear Foundation members. Attendees enjoyed famous dishes paired with wines and lively conversation.
From food to foreign policy, having a membership to WSJ+ also allows members access to editorial programs with some of the biggest names in business. There’s also benefits such as getting to preview exhibits before the open to the general public at museums like the Met and the Guggenheim.
Have gone to several of these events – the Met, MOMA and this one at the Guggenheim – very enjoyable… keep it up!– WSJ+ Member, New York City
WSJ+ Offers and Rewards
Once you activate your WSJ+ membership, you’ll get email notifications for offers and rewards. Some offers are for free e-books for titles from the WSJ Books of the Month list. Others are discounts up to 30% off wine collections or to non WSJ events like Mobile World Congress. Some months offer giveaways like an all-inclusive getaway to the Song Saa Private Island in Cambodia.
The Fine Print: WSJ+
WSJ+ is offered to all eligible subscribers worldwide. The special events, discounts and contests are organised into regional editions: Americas; Europe Middle East Africa (EMEA); Asia-Pacific (APAC), so if you are in Europe you can only see the EMEA regional edition.
For most of the perks offered, membership is required to gain access to event invites and discounts for experiences and products. For giveaways, legally there’s no purchase or payment necessary. There’s a lot of rules and terms including: age, residency and other eligibility requirements. You’re also not eligible for certain sweepstakes if you’ve subscribed to the Wall Street Journal after the start date.
