Sign Up for JDate Free Trial Without Giving Your Credit Card Info
There are two major issues with free trials:
- You forget to cancel them and get charged.
- The company doesn't cancel them and you get charged.
This is common practice with many companies. They practically hope you forget to cancel. Most people do.
DoNotPay can put you in a position where you have all the free trials you want and never worry about being charged.
Does Jdate Offer a Free Trial?
Yes. With the free trial, you connect with members via unlimited messaging. The drawback is you can't start conversations, only respond.
You're allowed to set up a full profile and images, as well as have full access to other member profiles. That's compared to other sites that let you look but limit interaction.
What Sets Jdate's Free Trial From the Others?
differs from the rest because there is no end date. Once you sign up for the free trial, it's yours until you choose to upgrade.
The problem is Jdate is infamous in the online dating community for bad faith behavior. Customer service isn't reliable. Inactive memberships are plentiful. They have a noticeable lack of successful relationships. More important, the company's known for hitting customers with unwarranted charges that are hard to get back.
How Can I Get a Jdate Free Trial?
You can complete the membership process in minutes.
- Go to Jdate. Or sign up with Facebook.
- The site asks you to enter basic personal information, such as name, gender, and location. From there, expand your profile to include a nickname, religion, height, education, etc. (A lot of this info is optional.)
- Advanced questions help streamline your searches. The answers lean towards religion, such as are you attending synagogue.
Does the Jdate Free Trial Automatically Renew Into a Paid Subscription?
No, unlike other online data trials, doesn't auto-renew to membership with regular charges.
Avoid Automatic Renewal With DoNotPay Virtual Credit Card
Free trials are often designed to be deceptive. Companies offer a period in which you test drive their wares. At the end of the period, you give them de facto permission to upgrade you to a paid membership with all charges therein. You rarely get a polite warning.
Most people who sign up for a trial almost always forget about it. Most companies count on it. Automatic renewals cost us untold millions of dollars annually. Worse, these services keep your personal information, leaving you vulnerable to breaches.
The trap is, to start a "free" membership, you're required to provide personal financial information. (A curious step as the company could easily ask you for that information at the end of the "free" trial.) The company even asks for permission to charge you after the trial.
In general, they expect you to forget.
Of course, Jdate doesn't charge you unless you upgrade. But it's not unusual for unexpected charges to pop up on your statements.
But DoNotPay can eliminate the possibility of getting lost in Jdate's red tape with a virtual credit card.
How Virtual Credit Cards Work
DoNotPay creates virtual credit cards that you use solely for free trials. They are legitimate cards. You get a unique card designed exclusively with a random number that's recognized as authentic.
What differentiates it from real credit cards is the card has no connection to an actual credit line or money. So, you can use the virtual card to start a free trial and test the company's wares and services. You don't have to worry about the end date of the trial. You never have to find an unexpected charge on your statement, sometimes months later.
Another benefit to you is if you choose to keep the subscription, all you have to do is swap out the virtual card with an actual debit or credit card.
How Much Does Jdate Cost After the Trial?
The company bases the cost of an upgrade from free membership to premium on the length of time.
|6 months||$29.99 per month|
|3 months||$44.99 per month|
What Will Jdate's Charges Look Like on My Statement?
There is no information that we can find to determine how Jdate appears on your statements. The closest we've come is "Yes, when you pay for a premium subscription, charges made via your credit card will appear on your bank statement, and charges made via PayPal will also appear." But no evidence goes beyond the generic description.
