Now that we've introduced the Wall Street Journal Online and reviewed what we like (and don't like) about it, it's time to get down to dollars and cents.  Unfortunately, we're not talking about the financial section on; we're talking about how much the website costs to use.

Is free?

For the most part, the online version of the Wall Street Journal is not free.  There are certain articles that you are allowed to access on without an account or subscription.  However, reading the majority of its articles requires you to sign up for a subscription and log into your account on the website.

Articles marked with a key icon on require you to be logged into your account and signed up for a subscription before you can view them.

How much does cost?

A subscription to, the online version of the Wall Street Journal, costs $28.99 per month.  First-time subscribers can sign up for an introductory account that will only cost $12 for 12 weeks, or $15 for 15 weeks (if you're a student).  Subscription rates for businesses of 10 or more people are also available.

That's about everything that we can tell you about the cost of using!  Now, to show you what you get for that price, it's time for a tour of the website in our next tutorial.
