Cancel your other subscriptions with DoNotPay
According to a recent New York Times article, Americans spend at least $640 a year each only on digital subscriptions. The temptation to keep adding on to our subscription/services roster is real, but the discipline to keep them in check is hard. Companies know this and use it to their advantage. It’s a tedious task sifting through bank balances every month while making an unconscious decision to finally cancel that gym membership you’ve hardly been using for the past year. Of course, it’s never really practical to set aside time and, before you know it, there goes another month and more money wasted.
The solution to this common problem is the DoNotPay app. In just one setup, you can have all your inactive subscriptions shown to you and cancel them on demand. No waiting around in queues, no explanations, no time wasted. All you need to do is connect the app to your bank or email account and you are one step away from canceling all your money-eating subscriptions.
Get free trials without your real payment info — use DoNotPay’s virtual credit card
Ever fallen victim to the free trial booby trap? We all have. You sign for a free trial, provide your payment information, use the service for a little while, then completely forget about it… until your bank statement arrives. After much annoyance you concede defeat, visit the company’s website and begin the tedious process of canceling your membership and/or requesting a non-guaranteed refund.
To avoid falling into the same trap in the future, don’t provide your own payment information — use DoNotPay’s virtual credit card. Each free trial is assigned its own unique credit card number (random numbers not utilized by any payment services) so that you can truly try before you really decide to buy! Using DoNotPay’s virtual credit card avoids:
- Unwanted charges
- Dealing with cancelations and refunds
- Misuse of your payment information
