Starbucks Customers Can Now Consume 15 Free New York Times Articles Each Day

The New York Times is lowering the pay walls for coffee drinkers by partnering with popular coffee chain Starbucks. Users logged into the chain’s wi-fi can get access to 15 free articles each day – a massive amount of words per cup in my opinion.

It’s not a complete free for all though, only articles from Top News, Business, Tecnology, Most-Emailed, and daily special print sections will be available. Jim Romenesko quickly pointed out that he’s been using the Time Readers to get free content for ages, so that’s worth trying if you don’t want to pay for your news. There are also plenty of other ways to get free access to various NY Times content, but why not just hop over to Starbucks and enjoy some overly sugared lattes and charge your smartphone while you read The NYTimes, The Economist, and The Wall Street Journal on Starbucks Digital Network?
