What to Know About Canceling Unwanted Subscriptions

Depending on the service, canceling subscriptions may result in additional fees or the need to return equipment. If you’re concerned about the time it may take to cancel various recurring payments, know that most companies make it easy to do so online.

Another option is to sign up for a service such as OneMain Trim to make the process easier. Trim searches linked debit and credit cards for monthly, biannual, or annual subscriptions.

When it finds a subscription, Trim sends you a message asking if you want to continue the service. If you say “yes,” Trim moves on.

However, if you say “no,” Trim will ask if you want the app to cancel your service. If you do, Trim takes care of all of the details.

There’s no monthly charge to use Trim. However, they will charge a 15% fee based on what they’ve saved you during the year. 

FAQs

When I cancel a subscription, will I receive a partial refund for unused services? 

The answer to that depends on the service and their terms. Some might allow for a refund portion, others may simply cancel the service at the end of the current paid-for term.

Does it cost money to close a subscription?

This, too, depends on the service. However, most companies do not charge a fee to cancel a subscription service. Read the cancellation terms to be sure. 

Will I have to return coordinating equipment for the service I’m canceling?

You may need to return rented or borrowed equipment for a canceled service. The equipment that you’ve purchased is yours to keep. 

Is it hard to restart a service once canceled? 

Not usually. Many companies will allow you to use the account you had before canceling to restart the service. However, you may lose some benefits, such as special pricing.
