There are three separate threads (probably four by now) over at Amazon saying that people have received emails that USA Today is debuting for the Kindle and the issue for tomorrow, 12/26, will be free. Apparently the email has a link which isn't working at the present moment. Anyone here get this message?

I got the e-mail today, too. Now all I have to do is try to remember to get the free issue tomorrow.

Oh great! My wife and I were just discussing a USA Today subscription this morning. I like USA Today, but my wife prefers more editorial (cerebral?) papers like Wall St. Journal or NYT.

Perhaps I'm misreading the offer, but it appears to me that you can get a free subscription tomorrow, not just a single issue.
That would be great(!), but I highly doubt it. Remember these subscriptions are for an indefinite period of time. I doubt USA today wants to give it away forever :)

Yeah, my interpretation also was that it would be a free subscription (presumably for at least a year). I think that's why they're only offering it for one day, to get people on board - but one day's worth of subscribers won't break their piggy bank in the long term (it's actually not a bad way to get a user base to evaluate the sales model and so on)...

I didn't get the email and I am on their mailing list.  I got other emails today from Amazon.  Wonder if everyone can't have the free subscription?
