lk2fireone (196) Usually try to cancel within a week, in case there are problems with the cancellation. I've been lucky so far, no problems, no extra billing charges.

Drooler (220) Typically within a week. Some sites might offer discounts for sticking around, so for those I cancel closer to the deadline, just in case there's some kind of time-sensitive script for that purpose. I have no evidence for this, though.

But if I'm irked, I'll typically cancel within 3 days of signup.

elonlybuster (39) With me It's usually sometime between 3 days a week. But it depends on how active the site is, how quick the admin is to respond, and how much I liked it.

I've had one occasion where the admin took a week to reply to my email, but the second I canceled my subscription it took effective within 2 days. I've also had it where I canceled and it took 2 months for my account to actually become inactive. I wasn't charged so I didn't mind it at all of course.

Jeffrey99 (29) Most of the time, within a week. Unless it's a site that I really dislike or that doesn't update anymore, then I cancel pretty much days, if not hours within singing up.

TheRizzo (23) 95% of the time I cancel within the first week. By then I know if the site is worth having a rebill or not. Sometimes its not even the site though, sometimes its my mood for that niche.

pat362 (375) I usually wait until about 3-4 days before I cancel a membership. I haven't yet seen an offer that made me want to stick beyond the first month.
I sometime regret the fact that an upcoming update will have something that interest me, but not enough to fork out another 25-30$. I'll wait a couple of months and then re-join.

Wittyguy (105) It varies a lot but as a matter of caution I try to cancel at least one week before expiration on a monthly and ASAP on trials. I just want to make sure that the cancellation gets processed and acknowledged before the rebill cycle. So far this has never let me down.

turboshaft (24) I'm usually in the within a week crowd.

Recently, I had a 2 day trial and forgot what time I had originally signed up at and canceled with about 30 minutes left until a rebill.

If a site ends the membership when it would have run out (like they all should) and not the second you cancel it, then I will try and cancel early so I don't put it off and forget. How convenient that so many sites offer instantaneous access, but it can take days to "process" a cancellation!

PinkPanther (46) For me it varies as to when I make my decision and how solid my decision is. If I'm decided for sure that I'm cancelling a site, then I cancel - regardless of when the renew date is. I'd rather give the site time to process the cancellation. If I'm on the fence about cancelling, I might well wait until a couple of days before the renew. cc-bill is very dependable about processing cancellations even with that kind of notice. Other sites and processing companies aren't as good.

The Bad New Trend - no confirmations. Private.com still refuses to communicate with me - and I've e-mailed and used their form on their site many multiple times. Since they never responded to my refund request, I cancelled again - again no e-mail response and my membership info still works - so they must have charged me again - so now I'll e-mail them over & over and write to my credit card company as well.

I decided to try Danni.com for a month - no e-mail confirmation when I joined and when I cancelled, they had all these next screens coming up where they want you to comment and the last one I filled out led to a blank screen - so am I cancelled or not? No e-mail confirmation - but I got none when I joined either - unprofessional crap!

This is why I cancel nearly a month a ahead of time, because of crap like this.
Even the best sites have ooopsed my cancellation, funny in the past one reason I started cancelling early was because of Danni.com , rebilling me , but that was like 4 years ago or something, back in the drm days

TalonIcefire (6) Provided the site is as advertised, I stay until I've downloaded everything I want. I run a spreadsheet listing sites end membership dates to gauge when or if I return for site updates. If the site is not as advertised, I cancel membership immediately, contact customer service and demand reimbursement for fraudulent site claims.

messmer (137) Most of the time I cancel within one week because that way I can forget about forgetting. :-)

nygiants03 (162) depends on the site. Some sites I just do the one month and I know I dont want to renew. In that that case i cancel right after I join. IN other cases I wait within a week or two.

TheSquirrel (53) I'm the one who put "within two weeks." It does vary, but occasionally I even cancel after a week. Sometimes I leave it as late as a week or even a few days, but I generally like to take NO chances.

PinkPanther (46) REPLY TO #12 - Cybertoad :

Well, Danni blew it on the lack of auto-e-mail confirmation, but I can't fault them on their Customer Service responsiveness. When I e-mailed them, they responded in 5 minutes.

Unlike Private.com, where not a soul has responded to me in several weeks and at least a dozen attempts by me to get a response through their site and an e-mail address where they had reponded to me on another matter - they are just thieves, I'm sorry to say. They're up there with the crap=heads that run MyaDiamond.com

Smart thinking is a week for a good billing site. 4-5 days is safe. I do 3 month memberships so I don't want a Re-bill if I'm not into the site and 4-5 days works well with CCBill and other billing sites. If itís a good site your membership is good for the remaining days.

C Spanker (2) I generally cancel a little over a week until expiration. I have never had a problem getting re-billed so I stick to this time frame.
