How to cancel your subscription to the Philadelphia Inquirer

I was unable to find a guide online so here is the info.

1. Call the main switchboard at 215-854-2000. (Hours of operation M-F 6am-1pm)

2. Choose the "Home Delivery Subscription Related Inquiries" option (3 at the time).

3. Choose the "Stop Delivery" option (3 at the time).

You may have to wait a bit for an operator but when they come on the line they will ask for your phone number and that is it. They may try to resell you the paper but that is to be expected.

They recently changed their phone service with voice recognition. Here are the new steps to cancel your home delivery:

- Call then number listed above
- Say "home delivery" or dial ext. 5120
- Say "something else"
- Say "cancel subscription"

Then you'll connect with a representative.

Just want to add a point of clarification or warning to anyone trying to call during the work week (Monday through Friday)....their hours are 6am to 1pm but I called at 12:55pm (on my lunch break) and they were "closed" so keep this in mind when calling.

Hi Anthony,

Thanks for the information. I was able to cancel using this info, and I asked them to add the info to their website, but i'm not holding my breath :)

Appreciate your kindness in posting this.

Thank you so much for your most helpful information. I called at 6:00 a.m. Which could be why from the moment i called to my hanging-up to approximately 60 seconds. Fabulous!!!

Like others, I am appreciative for the guidance in how to discontinue an Inquirer subscription. The process was very clear and simple, thanks to those who posted instructions and feedback!

I just canceled my subscription without any problems using these instructions. Thank you!
Also, fyi, they did offer me the opportunity to lover my subscription fee permanently to $ 1 a week ,instead of the $ 2.40 a week I was being charged so far. So if you would be willing to keep your subscription, if it was at a lover cost, there it is.
