The offer I signed up for doesn't say any of that! Again, read it again: "Three months for the price of one, plus a $50 Amazon.com gift card"

guys. i just chatted with them and got this:

Me: Hi. I just bought a subscription to WSJ and there a promotion for a free $50 Amazon giftcard. When do I receive it? Do I need to be a customer while it's being sent? There was no stipulation on the terms and conditions of the offer. Thanks!
Eileen: Hi,Thank you for contacting Dow Jones.
Me: Hi Thanks!
Eileen: The $50 Amazon gift card is a code that is emailed to you.
The card is processed after your 90 day trial period it normally takes 6 to 8 weeks after processing for the email to arrive.
Me: Thanks. So I don't need to be a customer after the trial period?
Me: to receive the gift card.
Eileen: You need to have an active account to get the gift card.


Eileen: The account auto renews on a monthly $21.99 after the trial period.
Eileen: You have to have an active account after the 3 month free period to get the gift card. The account must be active for 6 months.

That's okay. If that's true, I will just get a chargeback on my credit card. I put a temporary credit card number on the account, they can't bill me again if they wanted to.

Thanks OP! It'll feel good to be costing WSJ some money Plus I get heavily discounted Amazon credit

The terms on the offer do not say anything about remaining an account holder after the 3 months.

I will gladly be the class representative if they choose not to fulfill the offer for those of us who cancel after 3 months.

In for 1, thank you OP!

first off, thank you OP for finding this.

unfortunately i just called in as well (to cancel actually since i didn't trust the vagueness of this deal).

i reached a state side representative who immediately asked if i was calling in reference to the Amazon gift card deal. i said yes and she told me that we must stay an active customer for 120 days.

i think that pretty much seals it for me. their reps must have just been given a memo regarding it.

I am going to cancel my order too.

If anybody needs the number for WSJ - 1-800-Journal (568-7625).

Rep said she could not find my order (I guess it is to new). She told me to call back tomorrow.

jump in before reading the comments.
What to do?

My rep said I would have to cancel after the 90 days to get the card. In other words they will bill you for a fourth month and send you the gift card.
