Our best deal for subcribing to A Bit of the Bay Magazine is $99 (HST included) for 12 issues mailed in Canada or delivered in the North Bay area. After tax and delivery, that's only $3 per copy.
In North Bay, there are about a dozen retail outlets selling the magazine for $4.42 plus HST ($5 total per copy).
It's not a bad price considering the production quality and delivery costs. The stamp alone per copy is $3.12 plus tax, then add on protective envelope, labels and processing, making it $4 per magazine. It's the same cost for hand-delivery in town if fuel, time and vehicle wear and tear are considered.
Off the top of the $99 for 12 issues is HST, a $13 contribution to the Canadian treasury and with mailing/delivery costs at $48 a dozen, leaving us $38 revenue per dozen (a $3 per copy price).
Prefer a shorter term, there's also a six-issue choice at $60 (HST included). And you can pick your own subscription term with $10 per copy (HST included). Want it delivered for the next three issues? That would be a total of $30. Four months is $40, etc.
For mailing to the United States, please add CAD$2 per issue. (A 12-issue subscription is $119 (HST included), a six-issue deal is $65 (HST included).
