Get a Netflix Refund Fast and Easy

Netflix has grown to be a big name in the entertainment business — as of April 2020, it has over 183 million active subscribers. Their service offers thousands of hours worth of content, such as movie premieres and television shows for a monthly fee. What if you are not satisfied with Netflix and want to get a refund? This is where DoNotPay steps in! With our new File a Chargeback feature, you will get your money back in the blink of an eye.

Netflix Refund Policy

Although Netflix states in their Terms & Conditions that they do not give refunds, it is safe to say that there are some exceptions. Since Netflix offers monthly subscriptions, canceling the membership will not make you eligible for a refund, unless:

  • Netflix charged you after you canceled the subscription
  • You were charged during your free trial

Netflix has a strict refund policy, and it is only possible to get a refund from them if there is a mistake on their end. If you are certain that you canceled the Netflix subscription and Netflix is still charging you for their services, you can get your money back. You will receive a refund from Netflix if you provide evidence that you’ve gone through the process of canceling your Netflix subscription.

In case you’ve been charged during your free trial, it could be that Netflix is making sure that your credit card is valid and that you have enough funds on your balance to pay for the subscription. If that is the case, it is not against the law, and you should see your funds back in your account in no time.

In the event that you have been wrongfully charged by Netflix during the trial period, you can request a refund for the amount that has been withdrawn from your credit card.

Our free virtual credit card generates a short-term account number so that the merchant cannot take advantage of it. If you sign up for a free trial using our virtual credit card, you will not have to worry about unwanted charges once the trial ends.

As for your email address, it will also be kept hidden so that companies cannot put you on marketing lists and spam you with their commercial emails.
