For the last two days a complimentary copy of The National has been delivered to homes in Fujairah.
The Abu Dhabi-based newspaper is seeking readers all over the nation and to tantalize customers, Fujairah residents are being made this offer:
“Subscribe (or renew) to The National and we’ll reward you with a Montblanc Writing Instrument.”
The subscription fee is Dh300 for the home delivery of the paper for every day of the year.
Pictured is Hussain, delivering my free copy of The National this morning. Hussain comes from Kerala, India and he is one of a team of five delivery people who work for the Abu Dhabi Media Company (which owns The National). Papers arrive from Abu Dhabi via Dubai at 5.30am and the papers are delivered to the gate in the hours shortly after.
If you want The National and would like to write to your friends with a Montblanc Generation Ball Point writing instrument here are the contact details:
