New York Times Makes Samsung Go Offer
The New York Times and Samsung announced this week that those subscribing to its Times Reader 2.0 service will earn a $100 credit towards the purchase of a Samsung Go netbook. The offer is being made exclusively by New York-based J&R Music and Computer World.
The offer, which combines the Times' new e-reader-based edition with Samsung's first-ever netbook device, is good through next March. The reader subscription costs $179.40.
“Times Reader is an exceptional way for a growing segment of our audience to read The New York Times,” Yasmin Namini, senior vice president, marketing and circulation for The New York Times, said as part of the announcement. “Offering Times Reader with the Samsung Go makes it possible to enjoy our next generation news reader application on a sleek, premium netbook. This is a great value for consumers, especially with the holiday season approaching.”
