Does Netflix Offer a Free Trial?

Netflix offers one month of free service, but you will need to present your payment information when you sign up. After the free trial ends, you will be charged automatically based on the service plan you chose. 

Use DoNotPay’s Virtual Credit Card to Enjoy a Netflix Free Trial Without Worries 

Our virtual credit card can be a real life-saver when it comes to unmonitored free trials. Yes, Netflix will remind you that your free trial is about to expire, but even with that email, it’s easy to forget about it when you’re busy with other things. Here are some of the benefits you can expect when using the Free Trial Card:

  • It’s not linked to your bank account, so there’s no risk of charges
  • It allows you to sign up for any free trial service
  • It’s automatically canceled after the free trial ends

When You Cancel Netflix, There Are No Refunds, But…

Netflix won’t give you your money back if you cancel your membership in the middle of a billing cycle. You will be able to access the streaming platform until the account gets canceled automatically at the end of the billing period. If you’re set on getting a Netflix refund, DoNotPay might be able to help!

With Netflix, Canceling Is the Only Option (For Now)

There are currently no options to pause your Netflix membership. You can always change your plan and pick a cheaper option, but you cannot put your account on hold. There are reports that Netflix is currently testing a new feature that will allow you to keep your viewing history, recommendations, ratings, saved lists, etc., for up to ten months.
