How to Get a Risk-Free Trial for WeWork

hasn't always been in the news for the best reasons, but it remains a credible coworking space for any company looking for an in-person work environment. Of course, the opportunity to try before you buy is always appreciated. In this article, we will explain how to set up a free trial with WeWork, and how DoNotPay can be incorporated into the process – all without using your real credit card information.

Does WeWork Offer a Free Trial?

WeWork does offer a trial run for their services – albeit on short-term notice.

The company offers a one-month, 31 day trial of WeWork All Access. This level of subscription gives customers access to shared workspaces, bookable meeting rooms, and offices that are available 24/7. All-Access memberships are best suited for individual workers or small groups of people. Users of this free trial will be allowed to use any of the WeWork All Access locations around the world. There is no free trial option for dedicated spaces that are entirely private.

The offer is limited to one membership per person and ten memberships per company. It is not available to current WeWork employees.

How to Get a WeWork Free Trial

Assuming you don't already have a WeWork account, here is how you set up a free trial for the co-working space:

  1. Create an account on their website or app. You will have to give them your credit card information to complete this step.
  2. Once the account is made, you will receive a confirmation email that explains how to complete a user profile and receive a keycard. You obtain the keycard by visiting the community desk at your chosen WeWork location in person during regular business hours. Some sort of government-issued identification is also needed to get the keycard.
  3. From then on, you can begin to use your membership to book a workspace or meeting room. This is done via the WeWork app or their member web portal.
  4. Workspace bookings are required before each visit. After the booking is official, your keycard will automatically be activated to give you access to your chosen workspace location on the day of your booking. It's also worth noting that if you make your first booking on any non-holiday weekday between 9 AM and 5 PM, WeWork's community team will give you a personal welcome. How fun!
  5. Booking a meeting room requires selecting a specific window of time that you want the room for, and the time is paid for with credits tied to your account. (All-Access members get five credits a month.) If you go over the monthly allotment of credits, you will be charged for the extra credits in overage fees. (Here is a list of the overage fees for each country with a WeWork office.) Once the room is booked, your keycard will automatically be activated 30 minutes before and after your booking to give you access to your chosen location.

Does the WeWork Free Trial Automatically Renew Into a Paid Subscription?

After the first month, you will be automatically charged a subscription fee for WeWork's services. Previous charges won't be refunded if you do decide to and the company holds the ability to collect due payments if you come up short. Memberships can be canceled at any time and for the end of the current month. For example, a cancellation on March 5 won't go into action until March 31.

To opt-out of automatic renewal, you enter the WeWork or website and got your account page, then "Support", then "Membership" and request to cancel. This must be done with at least five days' notice before the last day of a calendar month.

Avoid Automatic Renewal With DoNotPay's Virtual Credit Card

Given the nonstop churn of memes and doomscroll-inspiring events and the general speed of daily life, it's easy to forget to cancel free trials and then keep paying for services you don't even use until you check your bank statement.

This is where DoNotPay comes in. Our virtual credit card system makes it possible to sign up for as many free trials as you want without giving up your credit card information and losing any of your money.

Here's how it works:

  1. Search free trial card on DoNotPay and enter the company you want a free trial for.
  2. We'll generate a virtual credit card with random information that you can use for any service. Copy the card details shown on your screen.
  3. Use the card to sign up for your free trial

Since this is only a virtual credit card, each version will be deactivated as soon as it's used once, and you can't use it to make any real purchases. But that further proves the point of the card. Once the trial period is over, you can't be charged because there's no money on the virtual credit card, so you'll be automatically unsubscribed.

How Much Does WeWork Cost After the Free Trial?

The cost of WeWork depends on the level of service you're looking for. Their "solutions" as they call them fall into three categories: Dedicated spaces that reflect a longer commitment, the monthly subscription of WeWork All Access, and a pay-as-you-go option called WeWork on Demand. Here is an overview of what the dedicated have to offer:

We've already covered WeWork All Access, so here's the rundown on WeWork on Demand. This lets individuals use shared workspaces or meeting rooms on an hourly basis during working hours without making any substantial investment. A place in the shared workplace starts at $29 per day and meeting rooms are $10 per seat an hour.
