Re: CBS Interactive renewal without notice

If you've experienced an automatic renewal from CBS Interactive without receiving prior notice, it's understandably frustrating. Here's what you can do to address the situation:

  1. Review Terms of Service: Start by reviewing the terms of service or user agreement you agreed to when initially subscribing to CBS Interactive services. It's possible that automatic renewals are mentioned there, including any notification procedures.

  2. Check Email and Account: Look through your email inbox, including spam or junk folders, to see if any renewal notification was sent by CBS Interactive. Also, log in to your CBS Interactive account to verify if there were any notifications or alerts regarding the renewal.

  3. Contact Customer Support: Reach out to CBS Interactive's customer support to inquire about the renewal and express your concerns about not receiving prior notice. They may be able to provide clarification on their renewal policies and offer assistance with any issues you're facing.

Re: CBS Interactive renewal without notice


 Note that with most (all?) subscriptions you pre-pay (or obtain a temporary free trial) for a defined subscription period that auto-renews when the subscription (or trial) period expires.  When you unsubscribe it stops the auto-renewal but the current subscription stays active until the prepaid subscription period runs out.  Few, if any, will cancel immediately and refund the unused portion of your prepaid subscription, except in municipalities where this is requied by law. 

To prevent auto renewal you MUST unsubscribe BEFORE the current subscription period runs out.    This is all explained in the conditions shown when entering into the subscription (you know, all that stuff we all agree to without actually reading it).
