Will I receive the paper on holidays?
Q: I want to stop my paper.
The Buffalo News requires at least three (3) days advance notice to stop your print subscription. Additionally, we cannot stop your print delivery on one of the celebrated publishing holidays mentioned above. Instead, we would need to process that either before or after the celebrated publishing holiday.
It’s important to note that your subscription will continue unless you contact Subscriber Services directly. As your renewal stub is mailed to and processed directly at a bank, written notes on these stubs rarely are seen by The Buffalo News. Charges against your account will continue to accumulate unless you contact us directly.
We reserve the right to change your subscription rate at the next renewal period. If you are not satisfied with your subscription rate or service, you may cancel your subscription at any time. The full amount of any balance less $5.00 will be returned. We do not provide refunds prorated for the remainder of the payment period for digital only subscriptions.

All redelivery requests must be made before 8AM Monday – Saturday and before 11AM Sunday. We’ll do everything we can to get a copy redelivered to you on that day.
Request for Credit – Any missing newspaper reported on this site will receive credit only for that day’s newspaper. We can apply credit for up to 5-days after the service issue occurred by calling Subscriber Services @ 716-842-1111.
