Advisorator by Jared Newman

Get the tech advice that matters.

Ever noticed how hard it is to find useful tech advice online? Too many websites bury their best information under piles of industry news, rumors, and regurgitated press releases. When you do find an article worth reading, chances are it’s loaded down with ads. And with the rise of affiliate deals between websites and online stores, you can’t always tell if you’re reading an honest review or a sales pitch.

I started Advisorator in 2018 to help folks cut through the clutter with a weekly newsletter, great deals, and one-on-one tech help. Sign up to discover the tech advice you’ve been missing.

What you’ll get:

📰 Weekly newsletter: Discover your phone’s hidden powers, become a Wi-Fi wizard, stay safe online, organize your digital life, and more. Read a sample.

💰 Unbiased deals: I’ll help you save money on phones, computers, tablets, home entertainment, accessories, and other tech gear. No sales commissions, ever.

💬 Personalized advice: I love helping solve subscribers’ tech problems. Send me an email or join Advisorator’s Slack chat room for one-on-one guidance.

📖 Member site: Read every previous newsletter and a growing collection of guides.

🚫 Clean reading experience with no ads, sponsorships, or creepy trackers.

Meet the Advisorator

Jared Newman here. I’ve been a professional technology journalist for more than 13 years, and I’m a regular contributor to PCWorld, TechHive, Fast Company. My work has also appeared in Time.com, The New York Times, Popular Mechanics, Wired, Rolling Stone, and Vice. You may also know me from my Cord Cutter Weekly newsletter, which goes out to more than 28,000 subscribers every Friday. I never tire of discovering new tech tricks, and I love sharing what I’ve learned directly with readers.

When I’m not knee-deep in tech or enjoying family time with my wife and two kids, I’m probably busy playing video games, studying jazz guitar, or smoking meats.

Kind words from happy subscribers

“I really appreciate the personal aspect of your writing. It feels less like a magazine and more like a friend sharing insights.”

“For the price of a coffee per month, I get lots of timely and useful info, and Jared’s deal alerts help the subscription pay for itself.”

“Not only am I learning about current and upcoming technology, but I feel like I have my own personal advisor.”

“I’ve been into computers since the mid 80s, and I still learn from you.”

 “Jared’s experience and intelligence shows through in every line.”

“Yours is the only newsletter I pay for.”

More details

When can I expect the newsletter?

Regular issues arrive every Tuesday morning, subject to change due to holidays and special circumstances. Deal alert emails arrive whenever I think something is worth your attention, which tends to be no more than once or twice per week. (You can opt out of these deal emails and still receive regular issues of the newsletter.)

How does billing work?

I believe in transparent billing and hassle-free cancellation. You’ll get an email reminder five days before the end of your free trial along with an email receipt for each payment. Annual subscribers also get a reminder 31 days before each recurring payment. Forget to cancel? Just let me know, and I’ll refund your latest payment with no questions asked.

I use Stripe to securely process payments, which means I never have access to your full credit card number. All charges will appear as “Advisorator.com” on your banking statements.

How do I change my payment info or cancel?

Just log into the membership portal to manage your subscription. You can also email me with a cancellation request and I’ll take care of the rest. You’ll find these same instructions at the bottom of every weekly newsletter.

What’s your data collection policy?

The full policy is here, but the short version is that I only collect what’s necessary to verify your payment information, deliver emails to you, and improve the newsletter.

To that end, I collect anonymous statistics on what percentage of readers open the newsletter and click on links, but this information is not tied to you, and I don’t use cookies to track you around my website. How, where, and when you read Advisorator is none of my business.

I have more questions.

I’d be happy to answer them! Just send me an email to get in touch.
