View Full Version : Offers we can cancel online, no phoning

Okay, I know there are a few of us dis'ers out there that are doing QR, SR, CR, TT (and the list goes on) and want to know which of the offers are easy to cancel. Calling to cancel just makes us nervous. So I was thinking we start a thread that lets us all know which ones we can cancel online. Like I just saw that Cinema Now can be canceled online. So if we had a thread to help us we could make money but also feel more comfortable. :) Anyone else up for this?

So we have so far ALL can be canceled online:
1. Cinema Now
2. Blockbuster
3. Official Nascar
4. Privacy Matters
5. Gamefly
6. Efax-- A live chat button online
7. Passport to Fun--Okay it's not online but it was an automatic phone call with no live person BUT BE CAREFUL you will have to cancel savingssmart as well, even if you don't want to join it. So call both to cancel. Sneaky sneaky
8. Silvertag--THROUGH PAYPAL MY FAVORITE
9. ShoppingJobs.com --at QR right now---THROUGH PAYPAL MY FAVORITE
10. OfficialAuctioneers
11. Gotta Play
12. Health Care Plan
13. Realty Trac
14. The Grant Assistant-- takes a little bit of effort to cancel but does work

Added May 8, 2007
15. Sleep Rite Essential Living ---live chat
16. RealtyStore
17. Foreclosure
18. Doba

Thank you for starting this thread! I just started to really get into SR and was thinking about starting a similar thread myself. Thank you!:goodvibes

Good!!
I forgot about blockbuster. That one was easy.
Glad some of us will be on board. I figure if I start at the offers with no phoning after awhile I may get enough nerve up to do the others. Right now I just don't do any trial offers, just clicks, emails and shopping. Would like to start making some more money.

How did you do that? I see a phone number for canceling? That one credits good so I may try it.

Privacy Matter is another good one. You do call a phone number but you just follow a number of prompts to cancel - you don't have to talk to a real person! For those of you who are worred about cancelling by talking to someone, it really isn't bad. Once you do it a time or two, you will have no problem. My experience is that they are all very nice - they have never given me a hard time at all. Just say that it isn't something you decided wasn't worth it to you. The only thing they usually do is offer up a better deal or give you an extension on your free trial. I always (except once when I took the better deal which has been great) just tell them no thanks and that is pretty much it. Again, in my experience they operators have all been very nice and professional and it is not an unpleasant experience (other than having to hold for awhile sometimes). So try it, I think you will be surprised at how easy it is.

"No thank you, I want to cancel today." "No thank you I want to cancel today." "No thank you, I want......" You get the picture!:lmao: It's not unpleasant, exactly, unless you're especially timid or have a hard time with the "N" word.

But seriously, the main downside to having to make the phone call, is being put on hold for endless amounts of time, only to be disconected because of the "high call volume" (probably all us SR DISers canceling the offers on the same day!;) ) So that's why I think this thread is a great idea!:thumbsup2 When I get home, I'll check my records and see which ones I cancelled on line. My brain cells aren't what they used to be!:rolleyes:

When you call to cancel, they tell you that you can also log onto the website , and use the contact us link....There is an option to cancel the membership from that section....

The only offers I cancelled online (near as I can tell, anyway) are the same as the ones already listed, except for the ones I did that you have to pay for. These include: Cosmetiqe (not too much $$ and pretty good makeup and stuff for that money), Game Fly (I never got credited for this one, but my kids enjoyed the games while they had them), Net Flix (you have to stay past the 10 day trial but it's only $9.95/month and you can watch a bunch of movies before cancelling after the 1st month), and that awful Beautiful Skin (it says "free trial" but only if you pay shipping and handling both ways and a $8.95 restocking fee--but Hey, you can cancel online! And the stuff really works--my DD loves it, but it's so expensive:scared1: . I will keep the first shipment, pay through the nose for the product and promptly cancel--online, of course!)
HTH!

I couldn't get my live chat button to work at EFAX so I emailed asking if they could cancel my account and they did!! So I have my confirmation cancelation email and didn't even have to do a live chat. :) Though that would be painless as well.

How long did it take for you to get a response from your email to cancel? My live chat button didn't work either, so I sent an email last night, but have not heard back from them yet??

Oh, forget it...found the email! They canceled it no problem!

How soon after sign up do you cancel as to still get credit for the signup?

Thanks! This is GREAT!

I wouldn't cancel an offer until you receive credit. QR is very quick about posting credit for sign ups. SR usually takes a few days. Most of the offers have a free trial period so you need to cancel before that is up regardless if you get credit or not (unless you want to pay the monthly fee for the offer).

I cancel the offers as soon as I receive credit. If its been 5 days and I still haven't rec'd credit for a 7 day trial period I open up a trouble ticket.

New to SR...Can someone tell me how they cancelled the Blockbuster offer online? I was going to keep it for the 1st month for $9.95, but after looking it over today, I found the site hard to navigate & I think I'd rather try Netflicks. I can't find how to cancel on the site.
Thanks.

I switched from netflix to blockbuster to get the reward a 4-5 ago but after a few months I decided I liked netflix better and went back to them

I signed up for blockbuster and and it seems to be slow, the turn around time seems to take forever. I saw Netflex on SR a while back and now it's not there. I wish it was. :sad1:

03-02-2007, 06:18 AM
Caitty,
Go to Offers & Netflicks is on page 12. It is 10 credits and you must stay past the free trial to claim. I may try it too, I cancelled Blockbuster yesterday.
BTW, for anyone who wants to try Blockbuster, when I cancelled the membership, they e-mailed me right away with a cheaper price to keep it. I just didn't really like the way the site was set up or the process.

caitty13
03-02-2007, 06:23 AM
I dont' have it on my page 12, I am new to SR and I might have deleted it when I first started out. Do you know if they can be restored?:confused3

How do you cancel through paypal?

There are only a few offers that go through paypal. Those ones are in the first post. I cannot remember of the top of my head which ones. When you sign up you give your paypal account and then when you want to cancel you go to paypal and click open the account you want to cancel. At the bottom of that page there is a cancel subscription button. Click it and you are done. So nice and easy. But like I said just a few do it this way. Good Luck :flower3:

I couldn't remember how I did it and it was one of my firts offers so I did not keep good records BUT I did go to another thread and found this.

"I haven't actually cancelled it yet, but I logged on to my account and I see the grey cancel button on mine. It is on the right hand side of the screen. You might have to scroll down a little to see it. Hope you find it! "

So it was probably a go to their site. Look in your account info and find somewhere to cancel. GOOD LUCK!!!

All of us are having the same thing happen with GottaPlay. It did say it will refund it. Someone called and was told it takes 3-5 business days to credit back to our card. It does say it will be credited so hopefully they will do it without us all having to call and bug them. But just wait a bit and see if you get it back.

Go ahead and cancel once you get your credit form SR or QR and then wait to see if GottaPLay credits your card back. After a week or so then I would call and remind them that you were to be credited back that amount when you canceled. I don't think it will come to that though. I think they are just slow at crediting our cards back but will eventually do it.

hmm, I think you should get an email. In the monring if you haven't gotten one I would call one of the numbers and ask for my member number. Then you can cancel online. But this one was a beware one as you will have been joined also to smart savings and need to cancel this one as well. I never got a member number for this one so I called the number and through the automated service got the number and then used that number to cancel. Big hassel but at least I never talked to anyone

This was a great offer. I signed up on 3/14. Got credit on 3/19. I sent the email asking for them to cancel my service and was asked to do their online chat. Just did it and it was easy as pie! :) And they send you a copy of the chat transcript for your records at the end.

Be careful with this one. I emailed to cancel and only got an automated response saying my message had been received. I waited about a week and still had not gotten a cancellation confirmation. So I finally broke down and called (Ugg!!) and they said "NO, you're account was not cancelled." So anyways, they cancelled it for me. But I just wanted to give an update of what happened to me.

I did eAuction Success last week, the terms section says you can cancel by email via live chat. I sent an email this morning and am awaiting a response. I'll let you know what I find out.

I signed up for evoice last week but haven't rec'v'd credit yet. I did get the phone call last Tue to make sure I was a 'valid' signup. So hopefully that one will credit soon and the chat will go ok.

Now we need more of those paypal kind. Gotta love those.
Angela

Edit: eAuction Success is an online live chat. Quick easy professional friendly. There's a quick 4 line survey at the end, then check the box to email the chat with the confirmation to yourself.

Thanks! I finally managed to get thru via phone. Today was my last day to cancel. I was still holding out for the credit (trouble ticket already filed) but I didn't want to cancel until I absolutely had to!!!

Just wanted to add this one. You can cancel Scholastic offers online!

I did the Dr. Seuss back in Jan, sent the package back refused and cancelled the account. Apparently they didn't process because I just got charged a 4th time. I got a little lazy and kept forgetting to look into it. I received a letter saying that the package was recieved and the subscription had been cancelled and refunded, but today I checked and yesterday ANOTHER charge when through.

So, deciding this time to keep things in writing instead of over the phone so I had a trail if it keeps going, I was digging around their site and found this page to contact them.

http://scholastic.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/scholastic.cfg/php/enduser/ask.php


I gave them all the info about my charges, requested it be cancelled (again, LOL) and within a couple hours had email confirmation that it was cancelled and they processed the refunds. So hopefully it'll show up on my account in a few days.

But wanted to pass along for those of you who like to cancel online, you can do it through customer service emails!

I signed up for entertainment weekly for the $9.95 w/automatic renewal. I called to cancel after receiving the first issue (not what I really wanted) using the 800#, and while on the phone I was given a website that I could have used to cancel
www.ew.com/customerservice

I stayed on the phone and canceled. It was very easy, and the operator was nice. :cloud9:

I did not try to cancel the remaining issues and get a refund, I just canceled the automatic renewal. The TOS stated I could cancel and get a full refund for remaining issues, but I did not try to do that, and the operator did not offer that when I said I wanted to cancel my subscription.

Now I have a question for you...

I am VERY leary of putting my credit card number on these various sites...so what I did with one was used a UNIQUE CC# that PayPal provides me with when I make a charge through them. So it is essentially like a one time use only. So if I use that on these offers, would I have to cancel since they don't have a CC# on me to keep charging? Has anyone tried this??

jollytammy
04-17-2007, 04:41 PM
How do you do that? That would be very nice not to have to use my CC#

Okay, I know there are a few of us dis'ers out there that are doing QR, SR, CR, TT (and the list goes on) and want to know which of the offers are easy to cancel. Calling to cancel just makes us nervous. So I was thinking we start a thread that lets us all know which ones we can cancel online. Like I just saw that Cinema Now can be canceled online. So if we had a thread to help us we could make money but also feel more comfortable. :) Anyone else up for this?

So we have so far ALL can be canceled online:
1. Cinema Now
2. Blockbuster
3. Official Nascar
4. Privacy Matters
5. Gamefly
6. Efax-- A live chat button online
7. Passport to Fun--Okay it's not online but it was an automatic phone call with no live person BUT BE CAREFUL you will have to cancel savingssmart as well, even if you don't want to join it. So call both to cancel. Sneaky sneaky
8. Silvertag--THROUGH PAYPAL MY FAVORITE
9. ShoppingJobs.com --at QR right now---THROUGH PAYPAL MY FAVORITE
10. OfficialAuctioneers
11. Gotta Play
12. Health Care Plan
13. Realty Trac
14. The Grant Assistant-- takes a little bit of effort to cancel but does work

You say for the Passport to Fun you have to cancel Smartsavings too...is there a seperate number that you need to call for that?? Because I have 1-800-999-0557 to call.

THANKS

This one can't be canceled on-line...but it's VERY easy to cancel over the phone!!

For any of you that use Cash Duck, I signed up for the Men's Health Trainer 10 day Free Trial, got credited immediately, and then canceled. It's very simple to cancel. You can call them at 1-866-710-5054 and they just ask you for the User Name you signed up under, and they ask you to verify your name. It literally took me about a 1 minute phone call to cancel, and it got me $12 in credits!!

I tried to go online today to cancel the OfficialAuctions.com/OfficialAuctioneers.com and it kept telling me that there was an error but they have been notified that I want to cancel. So I called and tried to cancel and they can't find my information :confused3 guess I just have to hope that they did get it...I use my PP Virtual Card, so they couldn't charge me again, but I am trying to be a good person and at least cancel it.

Be careful about that with trial periods that last 7 days or 2 weeks.

I found this information on another board:

Numbers stay active for a month or so. Works with most major online retailers, highly recommended.

It may be best to get temp numbers from your credit card company for only a set amount.

I'm afraid so.

also RE: Passports to Fun and similar places. I've done about 3-4 offers like these for points on another site, the points come in quickly. Be careful when you call the passports to fun automated system to cancel. You will click to cancel and it will offer you a yearly subscription instead. Don't press 1 to choose that, just wait about 5-15 seconds until the cancel option comes up again. It's easy, but sneaky.

Generally:
Call number, enter info: (mem #, cc # or phone #)
Press 1
Press 1
wait (this is where they try to get you to "cancel" a monthly membership, and join yearly)
press 2 to hear other options (it will say what they are, it will offer cancel)
cancel
confirm - enter zip#

Also, when I did the other ones (the ones with the + at the end and offered a $25 gift card), since I had already entered for the first one (passports) it gave me this msg:

Please verify the following information before we continue with your request.

* Please enter a valid credit card number.
* We're sorry. Your request cannot be processed.
Please contact Membership Services at the toll-free number or e-mail address listed on the Contact Us page. (5950)

(the credit card info was right, btw)

However, I was still credited. (this was on ipodsweepstakes, though, but I'm hoping it works here too.)

I couldn't tell if it "really" didn't go through, so I was paranoid and called anyway. Oh, looks like I have to cancel those too! eek!

Anyway, numbers I've accumulated for cancel:

Today's Escapes+ - 1-800-798-0664 (automated)
Passport to Fun+ - 1-888-999-0557 (automated)
SavingSmartSM - 1-800-316-8774 (easier online but you can confirm again by calling - automated- must have membership #) savingsmart dot com
At Home Rewards+ - 1-877-636-6858 (automated)
Valuemax - 1-888-205-2257 (automated)

You mean the "didn't go through call us blahblahblah" msg or did they charge you even after you canceled?

Ugh, I hope it all got canceled right. I didn't get a confirmation number from any except savingsmartsm.

As far as the membership # goes, it will give you your membership # on the automated system when you call to cancel after you give them your phone number -except savingsmartsm, but that was on the confirm page. I don't think they charged me for that again because iirc they said I couldn't "re-join" for a trial again. Ugh. Who knows. I guess we'll see. (I love my privatephone :goodvibes )

I did CD's HudHomesNow and when I called to cancel I had to wait over 20 minutes just to get an operator. When I finally got through the operator was helpful with cancelling, but did keep trying to get me to stay on ~ even though I never found any homes in my entire zip code! Why would I want to keep it???

Anyway, if you do that one, just have some time set aside: and don't wait till the last day of your trial if you don't have LOTS of time! lol.:)
