How to Cancel Your PS Now Subscription Quickly

Sometimes you get a subscription to a service or product and use it regularly. After a time, however, you may notice that your needs or interests change or shift and you don’t use that subscription anymore.

Just because something doesn’t meet your needs anymore doesn’t mean it’s a bad or useless service, but it does mean that you don’t wish to pay for something you won’t use anymore. Most people go by the reasoning, “Why pay for it if I’m not going to use it?”. That’s a fair point.

However, sometimes you will find that companies don’t want to make it so easy to cancel your subscription. They will constantly badger you with questions, or they might make you end up following multiple steps to cancel something that should be quick and simple to cancel. The point is that they want to discourage you from canceling their service so they continue to make money and you continue to lose money on a service or subscription that you don’t use anymore.

DoNotPay has a simple solution to this situation that will save you the frustration of having to and other services. We offer a variety of tools that can help you cancel your subscription without having to go through all of the rigmarole and the steps of canceling your unwanted subscription services on your own.

What Potential Problems May I Have When Trying to Cancel a Subscription?

There are lots of different things that can go wrong when you want to cancel your subscription to PS Now (or any service for that matter). These challenges can take up your time, which can be both frustrating and irritating to deal with when all you want to do is terminate a service. The following are some things that may make an otherwise simple ask more complex:

  • Long wait times to speak to a representative for assistance with canceling your subscriptions
  • Seemingly-endless questioning from representatives on why you are canceling your subscription
  • Representatives making you feel bad for ashamed for wanting to cancel your plan
  • Unhelpful customer service representatives who ask too many questions about why you want to cancel your subscription
  • Difficulty removing your credit card information from your account after past subscriptions were activated
  • Having to manually cancel your account after you subscribe and in time to not be charged for another month’s worth of subscriptions
  • Too many steps to follow to cancel your subscription that it makes it confusing to do on your own
  • Websites being down when you want to cancel subscriptions
  • Forgetting your ID/password to the accounts you need access to cancel your subscriptions
  • Being forced to pay termination fees to close your account

These are some of the reasons that people dread having to cancel a subscription service. Companies love to make something that is otherwise simple and more complex. They like to “guilt” you into staying and doing anything they can to keep your business. In the end, it is a real turn-off for many people and keeps them not wanting to renew the service if they would use it again in the future.
