Will Book of the Month let me pause my subscription instead of canceling?

Yes. With Book of the Month, you can skip one month if you don’t like the book selection of that month. As explained on the company’s FAQ page, there are two ways you can do that:

  1. Visit the My BOTM, and click on the ‘SKIP THE MONTH’ button at the bottom of the page, then click Confirm.
  2. Click the book icon in the upper right of the navigation bar and hit the ‘SKIP THE MONTH’ button, then click Confirm.

Does Book of the Month prorate its cancelations? 

If you cancel your subscription, you lose your membership benefits, meaning you will no longer be eligible to choose a hardcover book to be delivered to you. If you decide to skip a month, you will not be charged for it, and your credit will roll over to the next month.

Put a lid on automatic subscription charges after the free trial runs out

Most of us are hemorrhaging money through various subscription fees, especially those that occur after a forgotten-about free trial comes to an end. According to a survey by CreditCards.com, 48% of participants were charged for a subscription after a free trial period ended without their knowledge. Not just that, but only 51% of participants among that group was issued a refund. The figures for unwanted subscription charges easily mount up, but this is where DoNotPay’s Free Trial Card makes a world of difference. It operates on a few simple yet very effective principles:

  • Creates random and unique credit card information 
  • Gets approved on “free trial” pages
  • Doesn’t get approved on the “subscription” page
