What Is the Spectrum Refund Policy?

Spectrum often comes up on websites such as Reddit, where users share their dissatisfaction with the service, more concretely with how the company handles cancelations.

One user shared that even though he canceled the service on the 12th of the month, he was still charged for the full month. This means that even though he canceled his cable, he still had to pay for practically nothing until the end of the month. There was no way to reverse the cancelation and extend the services. Refunds were also out of the question.

This particular case falls under the company's No Pro-Rated Credit policy regarding the cancelation of services.

Spectrum monthly subscription policy offers no refunds in case the subscriber terminates the contract during the billing month. This policy includes all of Spectrum's subscription products:

  • General monthly subscription
  • Charges per program
  • Pay-Per-View
  • On-Demand
  • Charges per event

Spectrum usually offers the first month with lower rates or free-of-charge services. After that, the subscription automatically renews each month. To avoid unwanted charges on your account, use our virtual credit card to sign up for Spectrum services. It will prevent the company from charging you an extra month automatically.

Some Services That Spectrum Refunds According to Their Policy

There is a Spectrum Refund Policy that covers new subscribers and, in some cases, old ones.

This means that if you are a new customer, you qualify to have a refund for any level of the subscription within 90 days of your subscription date.

This policy also covers current subscribers, but only if they obtained a new service during their subscription. If that is the case, they can request a refund within 90 days of signing up.

If your case falls under one of these conditions, you should note that you can only request one refund per month.

Can I Get a Spectrum Refund for an Outage?

After an outage due to bad weather cut off cable service for millions of people, Spectrum introduced a line in which customers can request a credit for the lack of service.

So if you are a victim of the outage, you cannot get a refund, but your next bill might be lowered by a certain amount.

The amount is problematic as well. According to the survey done on a similar outage, the Spectrum issued credits ranging from less than $5 to up to $10.

If you want a credit due to the outage, you should know that Spectrum looks at each case separately and administrates credits on an individual basis. Don't expect anything to be taken off your bill unless you asked for it first.

Here is what you need to do:

  • Prepare the facts—the period of the outage, time frame during which you were out of service, your contract number, your zip code, and your address
  • Call 855-707-7328 and ask for a credit
  • Explain your case—explain whether you use cable, phone, internet, or a combination of the three
  • Wait for your next bill to check on the outcome

If handling your cable or internet bills is a problem, you can use DoNotPay to lower your Spectrum bills.
