WSJ Monthly iPad Subscription Costs $17.29

Did you catch the news about the Wall Street Journal iPad app that launched recently? To access anything beyond the leading articles and essential market data, you’ll need to shell out $17.29 each month. That breaks down to $3.99 weekly.

Engadget notes that a combined subscription for the WSJ’s print and digital editions costs just $2.69 per week. However, the Wall Street Journal is providing full access to its iPad app at no cost “for a limited time” to existing subscribers of its print and online versions.

This means you could potentially save between $6 and $9 monthly by subscribing to the physical newspaper. However, the duration of this “limited time” offer is unclear—could it be a month, or perhaps six?

It’s well-known that Murdoch is a fan of the iPad, yet Rupert, this pricing strategy might deter users from exploring the full capabilities of the digital platform.
