Charlotte Ledger membership tiers
We exist because of the generosity of our members. Here are the details on our free, paid and Premium plans.
We believe in transparent and straightforward pricing.
We don’t believe in gimmicky pricing, or trying to lure you in with an obviously unsustainable introductory offer (like $1 a month). We price our subscriptions reasonably, at what we believe they are worth, and we are consistent.
Unlike most other media, the bulk of our revenue comes from subscriptions. That allows us to work for you, the reader, and not for legions of big advertisers. It allows us to be independent, and it encourages us to provide a product that people believe is good enough to pay for.
Here are the tiers that we offer at The Ledger — and what you get:
At no cost, you can receive our complete Monday edition and our Saturday “weekend edition,” plus most breaking news alerts and our Transit Time newsletter, on Charlotte-area transit and transportation, on Thursdays. You also receive abbreviated versions of our Wednesday and Friday issues.
For $9/month or $99/year, you will receive access to everything The Ledger produces. Benefits include:
Our full Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday “weekend edition” issues. The subscriber-only Wednesday and Friday issues are free of advertising.
Our Ways of Life newsletter, on obituaries, on Tuesdays.
All breaking news we produce.
Access to our monthly listing of Charlotte rezoning applications (before they hit the city’s main rezoning website).
The ability to comment on every issue of The Ledger.
Invitations to occasional events and opportunities. Last year, subscribers participated in an online happy hour and holiday party and had the opportunity to recommend local charities to our full email list.
The annual plan ($99/year) comes with a second email address (collected by email after sign-up).
Our Premium tier, at $379/year, is available for people and companies who want to support our work at a higher level. Benefits include:
Everything in the membership tier (above).
Subscriptions for up to 6 email addresses.
A monthly public thank-you in The Ledger (if desired)
