The Colorado Sun’s March mini-membership drive

We’ve learned over and over that readers like you can be the best advocates for good journalism, and now we have a new way for you to show your support for The Sun. Plus, we’re celebrating our 2.5-year anniversary this month, so we felt it was good time to launch a week-long, mini-membership drive.

The Colorado Sun beanie cap

Say hello to the Colorado Sun beanie! We’ve got a handful of them to keep one’s top quite warm (take a look in our store). But we don’t have very many of them.

We’re giving them away for free to members who are our biggest fans. Get a free beanie by helping us expand our audience and getting five friends to join The Sun for just $5/month or, better for us, $59 a year at

To qualify, each new member should look for our welcome email and find the link to a form. Make surpe your friend writes in your email so we know who sent them our way. Gift subscriptions are included (and upgrades) but members should remind the recipients to fill out the form in the welcome letter.

And… there’s more!

Your friend may qualify for free swag of their own. Through March 21, every new annual member will receive a free Colorado Sun neck gaiter or a steep discount of 50% off the gaiters. All new premium members will get a gaiter for free.

Here are the details:

  • Join the Sun as an annual member at the Newsletters+ level or higher (or upgrade) and get a free mask.
  • Join the Sun as an annual member at the basic level and we’ll send you a promo code for a 50% discount. Just $10, plus shipping.
  • If you just want your own gaiter, head over to The Colorado Sun merch store  and get one for $20, plus shipping.
  • If you’re an existing member and you increase your monthly contribution or upgrade from basic to premium membership, let us know and we’ll send something your way.

After joining The Sun, all new members will receive a welcome email that includes a link to a form to select their choices. Any questions? Email

This promotion has been extended to March 28, 2021.

The Sun is a lean, mean operation. Every new membership or merchandise sale goes directly to journalists and the operation of The Sun. No costly overhead, no greedy owners, just your neighbors working around the clock to keep you informed.
