How Do I Add a Vacation Stop to My Arizona Republic Account?

Arizona Republic is a daily newspaper that circulates in Arizona and is published in Phoenix. It is the state's largest newspaper and has a circulation of over 100,000 each day. The Arizona Republic won a Pulitzer Prize in 2014 which really cemented its standing as the premier newspaper in Arizona.

Though many customers prefer to read the Arizona Republic online newspaper, there are those that still prefer the print version. The print version is the circulated paper meaning that Arizona Republic has a much wider reader base online.

You have to be a home delivery subscriber to receive the daily Arizona Republic newspaper. The Phoenix metropolitan area is usually first to receive the Arizona Republic so if you live in more distant parts of the state, the paper arrives much later.

Whenever you go on vacation, you will want to put a temporary stop, also called a vacation stop, on your subscription. If you fail to do so, you will pay for the papers circulated when you were away even though they may be stolen or damaged by harsh weather conditions.

You can get back issues of the Arizona Republic when you do not receive the daily newspapers that were left when you were on vacation if you are a home delivery subscriber. If you are not, you will have to purchase them from Arizona Republic.

However, the best way to receive your newspapers after you go on vacation is to put a hold or stop on your newspaper deliveries. You can do this in a variety of ways.


The first is through your account at the Arizona Republic website online. The process is as follows:

  1. Launch your web browser
  2. Open, the Arizona Republic website
  3. Log in to your account by filling in your username and password
  4. After your log in details have been authenticated, go to ‘My Account' or ‘Manage My Account'
  5. In your account, select the option for putting a ‘Vacation Hold' on your newspaper delivery
  6. Select the dates that you would like the newspaper to remain on hold
  7. Click ‘Submit' and the vacation stop will be implemented.

Ensure you receive a confirmation mail of the vacation stop from Arizona Republic. You risk the vacation stop being improperly executed if you do not.

Call Customer Service

The other option at your disposal as far as putting a vacation stop on your Arizona Republic newspaper delivery, is calling customer service directly. There are different phone numbers to use for this purpose if you live outside the Phoenix metropolitan area.

Calling Arizona Republic customer service is the most effective way to request for a vacation stop on your home newspaper delivery. It is also the fastest way to do so. You can find the Arizona Republic customer service phone number on GetHuman.

It is also crucial to note that if you want to call customer service about a vacation stop on your home newspaper delivery, you need to call them before 11 in the morning so that the paper will not be delivered the next day. If you call after 11, the paper will still be delivered the following day though you will not be present.

Help Desk

You can also use the Arizona online help desk to ask them to put a vacation stop on your home newspaper delivery if the two options above yield no results. It is the slowest and least effective method for doing so.

The help desk includes the newspaper's social media pages which can be quite helpful. Only use the help desk as a last resort option.
