Product Description

Product Description

The Wall Street Journal Online at WSJ.com provides vital business news and information, opinion and commentary and much more. It is the largest paid subscription news site on the Web, with over 1 million subscribers worldwide. Founded in 1995, it has been the winner of dozens of online awards, and is considered a must-read for top business executives, opinion leaders and other professionals.


It's a newspaper, it's a Web site--it's all of the information that comes rolled up in every edition of The Wall Street Journal and much more, available online. Anyone who wants to stay on top of U.S. and international news, especially economic and technology-oriented stories, will find The Wall Street Journal Online to be a valuable asset. Forbes has called it "simply the best business news site on the Web."

The interactive Journal delivers stock quotes on demand, continually updated news, a customized news- and portfolio-tracking service, access to extensive archives, and "briefing books" for 22,000 companies and more than 7,000 U.S. mutual funds.

Readers who are familiar with the print edition will not be surprised by the interactive Journal's personality: it looks a lot like the paper version, and it's just as staid as its paper counterpart. Navigation is intuitive and ease of use is... easy.

Unlike the print journal, this version follows you to work and around the world. All you need is your password and laptop to carry this invaluable business partner to any meeting, anywhere. --Stefanie Durbin

1.0 out of 5 stars Watch Out - Automatic Renewals and No Refunds October 27, 2005
This is not a complaint about Amazon, just the Wall Street Journal On-Line. I subscribed to WSJ Online and used a credit card to pay. As my subscription was ending, I started receiving e-mails saying that my credit card had expired and the subscription would not renew. That was fine with me because I hardly ever used it. Despite those messages, the subscription did renew and I received a much higher charge on my credit card than I had paid in the previous year. When I tried to cancel my unwanted subscription I was told that WSJ Online would not give any refunds and that I was stuck with the one year subscription.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great source for the latest information. October 18, 2000
I had subscribed to the Wall Street Journal (paper edition) for several years and found it to be one of the best sources of information (financial and other) available. When Dow Jones decided to make the same information available via their web site, I subscribed immediately. Recently, I dropped the paper edition, and now only subscribe to the online version.
So, what's so good about this website? If you read the The Wall Street Journal regularly, you will have access to information that the general public only hears about several days later through standard media outlets. I found this to be the case time and time again. I would read some random article on Monday, and the following Thursday or Friday the local or national news would be featuring a "late breaking" story that was almost word-for-word what I had read about in the journal earlier! The website, while not perfect, allows you to search for specific articles, research various companies, and retrieve stock quotes. Yes, almost all of these features are available for free on other sites, but you get it all here in one place. The editorial section, while usually conservative, is well written and often has guest authors who are very "deep" in their particular subject area.
In some ways I miss the paper edition. You can take it with you, read it on the bus, sit outside and read it, etc. However, the benefits of the online edition more than make up for these deficiencies. I recommend this publication in the online format. For me, it has been money well spent.

1.0 out of 5 stars Price increase 50% June 9, 2009
By John
I just noticed that my $99 annual online subscription was increased to $150 plus tax. My credit card was automatically billed for this. I knew the renewal was going to take place, but was unaware of the 50% boost in cost! I cannot do anything about it this time, but will not renew and think that their no refund policy is very anti-consumer. I know of no other periodical that has that policy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful Business Tool March 18, 2003
As a WSJ journal addict who is traveling a great deal, I found it better to eliminate my paper subscription and go electronic. At first, I had both the print and online versions, but I found the paper version wasteful as it still contains stock quotes and large print ads on stock offerings.
While I have no way of knowing if other reviewers have a different online WSJ with pop-up advertisements, which I doubt, there are none on mine. In fact, the online WSJ is vastly more streamlined than Forbes, Fortune, CNN, etc. The clutter-free layout allows for easy navigation.
The content of the WSJ is unparalleled. What makes the online version so powerful for business research, lead generation and job hunting is the search capability. My major complaint is that free search only goes back for thirty days. For those who want to pay [$] per article, you can use the advanced search page and access Factiva/Dow Jones, which covers hundreds of publication both large and small. Dow Jones argues that they have to compensate the content owners. Yet, they don't even offer WSJ articles that are already owned.
If you are looking for business ideas or contacts, the WSJ is an excellent publication. The online WSJ makes gathering this information less consuming than the print version.

1.0 out of 5 stars Process for Obtaining WSJ Online July 25, 2005
The Wall Street Journel is an excellent resource/web site.

To obtain your temporary password and access to the web site is totally ridiculous. The password is shipped to you in a box with excess junk. In addition there is a shipping charge for all of that junk. If you decline shipping charges your password is delayed a few extra days.

Most other sites either send you a letter within a few days or have some type of authentication that allows you to come online immediately. If Amazon can take your credit card information immediately in a secure mode why not give me my password immediately and send me the junk mail later????

1.0 out of 5 stars Really? Price increase of 50% without notice! July 29, 2009
I got an email about 30 days ago that my subscription would be automatically renewing. Never said what the price was. Never dreamed it would go up 50% without WSJ telling me it was going up. I would have kept the subscription had they not gone up. FYI there is no way to cancel your subscription online. I looked under my account when I got the email letting me know my subscription would automatically renew and could not find what my new rate would be. Just said I had to call their customer service to cancel my account. 30 days later I see the charge on my credit card statement. Never got an email from WSJ telling me my subscription had been renewed or renewed at a 50% increase. I called their number to cancel because I don't respond well to that type of treatment from a company! Took about 10 minutes on hold to speak to someone and get it canceled. The agent assured me it would be done. Be interesting to see if I get my credit on my credit card.
Businesses should never keep their customers in the dark. Businesses should be thankful of auto renewing customers and learn that it sends a bad message when you hide an increase little lone a 50% increase. I would have stayed a customer had they not hidden the rate or gone up!
