The third Republican presidential debate, titled "Your Money, Your Vote," will air Wednesday night. But if you want to learn more about how you should cast Your Vote, you'll have to fork over some of Your Money to the debate's host, CNBC, first. Unlike CNN, which hosted the previous Democratic debate, CNBC will not stream the event online for free. If you want to watch it, you have two options: Pay for cable or pay for CNBC's premium service, CNBC Pro, which will run you $29.99 for a month's subscription or $299.99 for a year's. Ouch.

But there may be a work-around, as discovered by the New York Observer's Brady Dale. CNBC offers a free seven-day trial when you sign up for its month-long subscription or a free 30-day trial if you opt for a year. If you cancel your subscription before the trial runs out, you should be able to watch the debate without having to pay. Just don't forget. And don't expect it to be hassle-free.
