The New Consumer subscribers receive exclusive access to our twice-weekly Executive Briefing newsletter, which includes original reporting, analysis, and commentary, broadly covering the intersection of technology and consumer, written and edited by me, longtime tech journalist Dan Frommer.

Subscribe for $200 per year

Membership is available as a yearly subscription that renews automatically. If you subscribe before the end of April during our launch “beta” period, I’ll extend your subscription through April 30, 2020. Thank you for being an early supporter.

The New Consumer is currently a one-person operation that’s entirely funded by membership, so please consider your subscription an investment in a small but ambitious independent journalism startup. I appreciate your support!

Membership covers one individual. It’s cool to occasionally forward a newsletter, but please don’t share your account. To give The New Consumer membership as a gift, click here. For special corporate rates (more than five accounts), please contact me directly at

Publishing Schedule

Important: This is a one-person operation, and I plan to be doing this for a long time. To keep things sustainable, in addition to most U.S. holidays, I plan to take up to four weeks of vacation per year and up to two weeks for professional development, such as research trips. I may also need to take personal or sick days from time to time. I’ll maintain a publishing schedule here starting in May after the beta period ends.


Memberships to The New Consumer are managed by Memberful, which is part of Patreon. This is the same service trusted by Stratechery, Hot Pod,, The Air Current, Craig Mod, and other excellent membership-fueled publications. Credit card payments are handled by Stripe. This website is securely hosted by WordPress and email newsletters are distributed by Mailchimp.
