Where can I check to see if Charlotte Observer home delivery is available in my area?
Navigate to the search box at the bottom of this page and enter your home delivery zip code. If home delivery is available in your area, Charlotte Observer subscription rates will populate on the results page. Please note that while newspaper subscription prices are published for your zip code there is a very small chance that your specific address is not serviced by the Charlotte Observer. This situation occurs mainly in very rural areas. Additionally, if your delivery address is a PO Box number, the newspaper cannot deliver to your address.
Can I still subscribe if my address doesn't qualify for home delivery?
Charlotte Observer discount subscriptions are not available for every address. A Charlotte Observer subscription customer service representative can help determine what delivery options are available if your address doesn’t qualify for Charlotte Observer home delivery.
Is my personal information safe?

What should I expect from Charlotte Observer Customer Service?
You can expect responsive customer service that allows you to review and update your delivery and billing information, stop delivery of your newspaper when you're away, discover special promotions and notify the newspaper of any comments or questions you have.
By what time should I expect the Charlotte Observer to be delivered
In most areas, the paper will be delivered by 06:30 AM on weekdays, AM on Saturdays, and 07:00 AM on Sunday. We strive to maintain these guidelines; however, there are always circumstances, such as inclement weather, that might cause your newspaper delivery to be delayed. If your paper does not come on a scheduled delivery date, please contact Charlotte Observer as soon as possible to receive credit.
When will Charlotte Observer home delivery start?
The lead time to start delivery on a new order varies by area. In most areas, new orders begin within 3 to 5 days after the order request has been received. Your expected start date will be shown on the confirmation page after you place an order. If you have any questions about your start date, or if your newspaper subscription does not begin as scheduled on the first day, please contact Charlotte Observer, so that we can send a reminder notification to the delivery carrier in your area.
