All Newsday subscriptions include coupons sent to the subscriber as well as digital access to the Newsday.com website and Newsday app along with the paper delivery. 

Newsday subscriptions are offered at a reduced introductory rate, with 7-day delivery charged $2.99 per week, Friday, Saturday and Sunday only delivery for $1.99 per week, and Sunday only for $1.00 for 4 weeks of papers. All subscriptions are charged a $5.00 activation fee and are billed 8 weeks in advance. 8 weeks of daily delivery is $23.92, 8 weeks of weekends is only $15.92. After the initial introductory period, the subscription will renew if not cancelled at the current market rate for the subscription.
