I subscribe by email to a free genealogy newsletter. There is also a "paid version" which contains more info.

He introduced the subject of cancelling an "auto-renewal" subscription that, I'm guessing, wouldn't require you to call the said company prior to the auto-renewal date. He made it sound like it is something you do ahead of time.

I'm not referring to Apple products, which now might have an auto-renewal button that you can subsequently turn off.

I'm talking about regular web sites on the internet.


Any thoughts on how this issue could be handled? I'm assuming it isn't just a matter of cancelling your current credit card each time a subscription comes due. That would be inconvenient.


Thanks.

If I sign up for something I MUST HAVE which has an auto-renewal "feature" (HOOK?), I cancel it via separate certified letter to them 2 days LATER. Otherwise, if will take you 2 months MORE subscription (issues) service for the "bill" to appear on your credit card and then another 2 more months called after they charge you 2 MORE months of PROCESSING time ... which usually now the COST is higher than if you just brought the issues THAT you did read at the grocery store. Or the auto-renewal is for a FULL year

So, in my vast experience ... nothing usually makes it past the "MUST HAVE" requirement.

PS Some companies if you call in to say "I want" will actually allow you to place a cancel request at the time of ordering.

Do they have a website? If so, it is likely that you have an account that can be accessed on that website. In that account there may be an option to choose to 'cancel' the premium/paid subscription.
