Advertising Inserts and Fliers

My newspaper seems to be missing some of the inserts. Why?

Some newspaper advertising inserts are "zoned," and only inserted in geographical areas the advertiser has selected.

Back Copies

Where can I find copies of past newspapers?

Subscribers can access e-Edition versions of Arizona Daily Star back to 2007 on Papers can also be accessed via, or at the main Tucson Library at 101 N. Stone Ave, Tucson. The library’s phone number is 520-791-4010. Arizona Daily Star no longer fulfils requests for printed versions of back copies.


My first bill was for a higher amount than what I thought it should be. Why?

That’s because your first bill includes a prorated charge for the remainder of the current month to put your account in line with our standard billing cycles. Standard billing cycles are based on calendar months, so if you start your subscription in the middle of a month, your 1st bill charges you for the remainder of that month, plus the pre-pay for subsequent calendar months. After your first bill, charges will be at the stated rates less any credits.

On my bill, it says “Adjustments to rates may take place as subscription terms expire.” What does that mean?

This line on your bill simply means that we will not increase prices for billing periods which you’ve already paid. Rather, any price adjustments will be made at the end of prepaid terms. Like all other businesses, it is sometimes necessary for us to increase prices. Paper, ink, fuel, delivery fees, and other expenses incurred in producing our product increase over time, and these increased expenses must be partially passed along to our customers.

On my bill it says, “Charges for your home delivery subscription will continue until you advise us otherwise.” What does that mean?

In an effort to avoid unintended interruptions in delivery, we provide a grace period prior to stopping delivery. That means, if you didn’t pay your bill, but we didn’t hear from you, we’ll assume you want to continue home delivery. After a period of time, however, your home delivery will be automatically stopped, and your account balance will reflect all received deliveries.

Can I still access online content when I put my print home delivery on a vacation hold?

Yes. When you put your print home delivery on a temporary vacation hold, you will still have access to all of our content via digital platforms. While on a home delivery vacation hold, your account will be credited for charges associated with the delivery of our print edition. Content charges will continue to be applied while you are on vacation.

How are Vacation Credits calculated on my bill?

While on a home delivery vacation hold, your account will be credited $.15 per day (Mon-Sat) and $.22 per Sunday that the print edition is not delivered. The digital portion of your subscription remains active and available, so content charges will continue to be applied while you are on vacation.

Is it possible to pay every 3, 6 or 12 months rather than monthly? Or visa versa?

Yes. To change your billing cycle, simply email or contact a customer service representative at 1-800-695-4492.

What is your refund policy on subscriptions?

For subscriptions including delivery of the print edition, any balance over $10.00 will be returned. For Digital Only subscriptions, there are no refunds.
