Okay, I know that Cook's Illustrated does it too, but I just find it utterly ridiculous! If you are a subscriber to the print format, you should be an automatic subscriber to the online format! I just received my e-mail this week from Fine Cooking telling me that I could start my free 14-day trial for the online information, and then from there, I can pay $2.95 a month or $9.95 a year... that's in addition to the $29.95 a year for the print version. I'm ticked! I wrote them an e-mail this morning telling them how I felt. I've decided to give it a little bit of time, but I told them if things didn't change (which they probably won't) that they could look forward to my cancellation. It's my favorite and I'm sad, but their subscription rate is already higher than most anyway. I have happily overlooked that for years because I love it so much, but $40 a year is ridiculous! I hope other people write to them too.
