Cancel Your Calm App Subscription Hassle-Free

Calm is the #1 app in the world to help with sleep, relaxation, and meditation. Apple even named it the App of the Year back in 2018, making it the turn-to source to help people eliminate stress in their lives.

But what happens when you want to ? There are procedures in place, but it can take time you don’t want to spare. DoNotPay can help.

Let us make the process easier and show you by using DoNotPay.

How to Cancel Your Calm App Subscription

Those of you who want to on your own can take action after reading the site's Terms page. Keep in mind Calm offers monthly, yearly, or lifetime subscription levels. All of these renew automatically at the date set when you started your plan.

To go about canceling, Calm recommends these steps:

  1. Email the staff at:
  2. Only cancel via the support email if you purchased your membership directly through their site.
  3. Cancel via your app provider if you bought the app through them.
  4. If you cancel before the end of your subscription runs out, you'll still be able to use the app until that period ends.

Calm also has a returns policy, allowing you to return the app if not satisfied. Plus, you can return any product Calm sends you within a 30-day time window.

Potential Problems in Canceling Your Calm App Subscription

A few problems with canceling Calm have been reported to the Better Business Bureau. The biggest complaints were:

  • Customers were not notified about when their annual subscriptions were about to renew.
  • These customers were charged $70 for an annual subscription since Calm didn't send a notification about the renewal notice.
  • Others say it was difficult to navigate the cancellation steps.

One good thing is Calm still refunded many of the customers above once the issues were worked out. They left responses to the customer complaints on the BBB website explaining this.

Still, imagine how much time this wastes when you're overly busy.

What Do the Calm App’s Charges Look Like on My Statement?

Since Calm goes strictly by auto-renewal subscriptions, a credit card is your only payment method. Your credit card statement will clearly identify Calm.

Still, their autopay feature can easily become problematic for busy people like you. Like those who complained above, not being notified of renewal is a major issue if you forget about having an annual Calm subscription.

How can you solve their automatic renewal problem so it doesn't cause an inconvenient financial hardship?

Is Calm Being Difficult? DoNotPay Can Help You Send Demand Letters To

There aren't any documented incidents of anyone suing Calm. Other than the complaints about auto renewals, Calm still refunds many of their customers. Nevertheless, anything can happen. Perhaps one of their products they sent you caused an issue with your health, requiring you to file a lawsuit.

DoNotPay makes it super easy to send demand letters to companies like Calm in small claims court. To prove our abilities, we've been recognized by the American Bar Association's Louis M. Brown Award for Access.

What Are the Best Alternatives to the Calm App?

A lot of other meditation apps are out there. Calm’s subscription is $70 per year. If you think the subscription rate is too expensive at Calm, consider these other options:

Insight Timer This meditation app is equally popular and slightly cheaper than Calm's. Insight Timer's yearly price is only $60.
HeadspaceYou've probably heard of this meditation app. It also costs $70 per year, though it has a monthly subscription of only $13 per month.
BuddhifyThis is the cheapest meditation app out there for a one-time purchase of $5, plus it offers more targeted approaches to mental health. But keep in mind you may end up spending more on in-app purchases.
