How to Cancel

I signed up for a membership earlier this year. I recently lost my job and decided to go back to school. I wanted to cancel the membership bc I couldn’t afford it anymore. I went in person and explained my situation and asked about early termination fees.They said they could freeze my account until I was able to pay. I told them I won’t be able to pay indefinitely. They kept pushing to freeze my account. I asked them what would happen if I just didn’tever have the money to pay. They said my account would be suspended until I could pay (basically just force freeze it). I told them that I’m about to go back to school and would not ever have the money to pay. She finally just said ‘ugh! Fine just fill out this cancellation form’. The fine print said I’d be charged for one more month and that for 30 days after that I could still use any leftover services I had on my account. I don’t plan on using it, I just wanted this expense off my monthly bills. Now, I’m not sure how this will end up, but I did fill and sign the form so if they still charge me I’m canceling my card. They don’t send collections after you. They just use fear to get you to stay because their bosses must use fear on them. Not the greatest business strategy, but there is a way to cancel. You’ll just be charged. And all the people who say ‘you’re an adult! You know how to read. If you didn’t want it then you shouldn’t have signed up!’ Well yes I am an adult and just like everyone else, things come up unexpectedly and cicrcunstances change. There is always a way to get out of any contract, it will probably just cost you some money.
