Where can I check to see if Des Moines Register 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, Des Moines Register 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 Des Moines Register. 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?
Des Moines Register discount subscriptions are not available for every address. A Des Moines Register subscription customer service representative can help determine what delivery options are available if your address doesn’t qualify for Des Moines Register home delivery.
