From Equifax to Fiction—Cancel Equifax Credit Services in a Few Easy Steps

Equifax is a multinational consumer credit reporting agency. It collects information on over 800 million consumers worldwide. Along with TransUnion and Experian, it’s one of the “big 3” credit agencies.

The company provides its users with subscription services such as fraud protection and credit monitoring. When these services are no longer useful, it’s time to cancel.

Does Equifax Offer Prorated Refunds After Canceling Credit Services?

No. You will not receive a refund for unused days after canceling your monthly subscription. The company does offer refunds for canceled yearly subscriptions. The amount you are returned depends on the number of unused months left in the billing period. Partial months are not included. 

DoNotPay Can Monitor Unused Subscriptions for You

It’s no secret that we use too many subscriptions nowadays. The average American will spend thousands of dollars every year on subscription services. How many of those slip under the radar and aren’t even used by the average individual? One survey estimates that it’s around $348 worth of subscriptions. It’s money that would be better spent on services that we actually use. 

DoNotPay offers a solution to this problem. Our handy little app can track all of your active subscriptions and keep you up-to-date. All you have to do is connect your email or bank account to the app to start using our feature. Your paid services will be displayed, and you can choose which ones you want to cancel right there in the app.
