Someone forgot to change the cover price of The Age

Fairfax announced the cover price of The Age would increase to $3.00 from today. Here is today’s front cover, showing the price still at $2.80. The circulation folks at Fairfax are in for a busy day and the folks responsible for production are likely to have a worse day … unless they delayed the increase because of Richmond’s historic win.

That the old price is still showing on the online edition indicates they are yet to realise.

    Exactly the same situation occurred with the SMH. More work for us after we already informed sub agents of the price rise and charged several customers $3.00 until a customer complained that it says $2.80 on the cover. Thanks Fairfax

    This is the kind of mistake that happens when you don’t have proof readers anymore.
