The Washington Post Reviews (177)

The Washington Post is very sleazy in its billing collection procedures for digital subscriptions - it will automatically renew without your permission and force you to pay for a digital subscription if you want to post a comment on their articles I have been charged automatically to an old credit card for several years without my permission Also in order to undo it, you have to be put on hold and then called back and give the same info over and over until they hope you get tired This is out of the old internet account subscription playbook when they would never let you cancel extremely sleazy and people need to force them to stop this practice

Thier customer service called me a month ago indicating that I could renew my subscription at the previous rate I was offered in the prevailing yearOne month later I recieved a bill for the month that was at the full subscription price!!
They, the post, lied to me and never renewed my subscriptionFor one month I essentially paid times what my previous rate was for the same periodBeware of thier scams!

Complaint: ***
I am rejecting this response because:
When a customer asks to be taken off your list, it means, be taken off the list no matter where one moves toThe fact that the company disrespected my wishes and asked me to go an extra step and contact them every time I move addresses to update their system is totally unacceptableI do not want to receive any further solicitation from your business periodI want this matter escalated to the highest level in the Post possible

April 13, 2016*** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** Alexandria, VA 22302Dear Ms***:We received a letter from the Revdex.com dated April 5, 2016, regarding your Washington Post newspaper account, I apologize for the misunderstanding, upon your request to
cancelYour account was refunded for the two papers which is why they were not deliveredI understand that we have mailed the two missed editions of the Sunday papers you requested.Thank you for the opportunity to resolve this matter

Love the Post but was away when special subscription lapsed and on vacation stops. Did not receive any mail or email notifying this could renew or stop service.
Received a bill last week and called as they charged me 53.80 balance and a restart of 98.00 for 8 weeks. They said they would escalate the credit. Today received a bill and I called , they said it was denied, they would put it through again. I want someone to resolve this so I won’t be dunned for an unauthorized subscription. Again I have spam filters if an email was sent and was out of town when the subscription lapsed on a vacation stop. I think a better way to notify customers, especially when they are out of town would alleviate this for other customers. Also I will wait to renew until there is a special, I am an disabled senior on a fixed income and the cost of the Post is so much. A senior discount would be great. I believe in real news to read and the Post is the best. I will miss it until there is a special pricing. Please resolve my issue so I don’t have to keep calling. Thank you.

Dear [redacted]:
Thank you for being a long-time subscriber to The Washington Post newspaper. On March 20, 2015, when you informed our customer Service representative that you could no longer afford the paper at the rate on your bill, our representative should have...

suspended Service. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and have removed the remaining balance on the account.
