Will Course Hero let me pause my subscription instead of canceling?

Yes. Premier Memberships can be paused once per month, but only if you have subscribed through the Course Hero website. Subscriptions bought through the Google Play Store or iTunes cannot be paused. 

Does Course Hero prorate its cancelations? 

Yes. After your paid membership period ends, you will immediately be relegated to a basic membership at no cost. The free membership allows you pay-per-question access to their 24/7 Homework Help, free literature infographics, and study documents in the Course Hero’s library (although you cannot view them in full or download them).

DoNotPay automatically detects subscriptions you don’t use

The large majority of people don’t have a clear idea of what they’re shelling out on different subscriptions every month. The reality is, it’s usually much more than what they think. Freeview ran a study that found that the average monthly cost of participants’ subscription fees turned out to be a whopping £149, instead of the perceived amount of £29quite the difference, isn’t it? If you have recognized yourself in the lines above, you should download our app for free now. DoNotPay allows you to link your email or bank account to the app, then sifts through the services you should no longer be paying for.

Stave off auto-renewed subscription fees with our Free Trial Card

Once a trial period you signed up for comes to an end, you no longer have to fear undesired subscription charges. That’s because DoNotPay’s Free Trial Card comes to the rescue by generating random and unique credit card information that you can use to sign up for free trials online. Thanks to this clever system, you will never again be charged for a subscription that you don’t intend to use.

This is what our Free Trial Card does:

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