Special offer: Stay connected to your community in 2018 with a subscription to the Shawnee Mission Post, first month just $0.99


Friends, 2018 is here, and for many of us that means a commitment to self improvement. And while there’s a lot to be said for eating better and working out, let’s not forget the wonders of exercising that big grey muscle between your ears*: your mind.

To that end, we’re offering those of you who may have been on the fence about subscribing to the site the chance to see what it’s like to give that big, beautiful brain of yours unencumbered access to the only local news source wholly dedicated to the Shawnee Mission area. Look, we know that the idea of subscribing to a web-only product feels a little foreign to many of you, even those of you who value having a news outlet dedicated to covering your community. After all, since most newspapers began giving away access to their content for free 20 years ago, it’s become the norm to expect unfettered access to the news without charge.

Unfortunately, giving away the product for free turns out not to be a very good business model, and so more and more news operations are charging for full access to their stories.

If you’re among the readers who’ve considered subscribing, but just haven’t been able to pull the trigger, we’re hoping this special trial offer might get you to act:

Through next Saturday, Jan. 20, if you use the coupon code NEWYEAR at checkout, you’ll get your first month of full access to the site for just $0.99.

If you want to stay plugged in to the issues that affect our community, there’s no better way to do it than by subscribing to the Shawnee Mission Post. And for the next week, you can sign up for just $0.99.


*I know the brain is not a muscle.
