I'm doing some research for Las Vegas and I'd like to ask if anybody knows what are prices for NY Times, Financial Times and USA Today there.

Best answer: You mean like newsstand prices? NYT is $1.25 anywhere outside NYC (Sunday's paper is $4.00). USA Today is .75.

Best answer: Oh, and the FT is $2.

Also international will vary by country - I could get the Sunday times in Sydney (about 3 days later) for $7 or $8 Aussie dollars about 3 years ago. Obviously every country (and perhaps every newsstand in the case of foreign places) may vary.

AFAIK, some (many?) hotels give you USA Today for free outside your room door in the morning.

Call where you plan to stay.

Ask for the price of room delivery for the papers. Or ask to be transferred to a/the hotel convenience/sundry shop. It's a sixty second phone call, so no big deal even if you have to call a dozen prospective hotels.

Best answer: NYT, FT, and USAT have the same circulation prices wherever you are in the country. USAT and NYT have home delivery in many cities, and that's a standard rate no matter where you are. FT is delivered through the mail, with no home delivery available. If you aren't in a city where USAT and NYT have a relationship with a local carrier, you have to buy a mail subscription, which is the same price for wherever you live in the continental States. If you buy the papers a a newsstand, there's often times a markup, which is set by the newsstand itself. And I believe the national edition of the NYT is more expensive than the metro editions available in the NYT metro area, but again, the national edition has a flat rate that is the same no matter what part of the country you're in.
