How to cancel your Netflix account and end your subscription | Digital Trends Spanish
Disney Plus. Peacock. HBO. With so many service options streaming that have arisen and continue to arise, you may want to try a new one and cancel the first one you signed up: Netflix. However, ending your subscription will take some time and patience; after all, the platform doesn’t want to lose you and will try to change your mind. But if the decision is already made, with this guide you will learn how to cancel your Netflix account without headaches.
How to cancel your Netflix account
Canceling Netflix is a simple process. To do so, simply grab a phone or computer and log into your Netflix account page. Next to the panel that shows your personal information and current payment option, you will see a Cancel Membership button. Click on it and you will go to the cancellation page.
At this point, Netflix will likely try to lure you into staying, possibly offering you a less expensive pricing plan. If you are determined to continue canceling, just click the End Cancel button and you are officially done paying for Netflix.
Wait, I don’t see that cancel button
If you go to your account page and you don’t see the Cancel Membership button, it’s probably because you signed up for Netflix through a third party. Many cable, fiber, and satellite companies allow you to add a Netflix membership to their subscription packages, giving you one monthly bill instead of two. However, this agreement means that you will have to cancel your Netflix subscription through that company and not through the Netflix account page.
What if I change my mind?
You canceled Netflix and now you have doubts. Not surprisingly, Netflix makes it very easy to subscribe again. When you cancel, the service keeps your account and all your preferences stored for up to 10 months after the last payment date, so you can pick up right where you left off. The same goes for your Netflix list if you were using the company’s DVD or Blu-ray rental service.
What if I still have time on my account?
If you decide to cancel Before the end of your billing period, Netflix will not refund your money on a pro-rata basis like some satellite or cable companies do. But it will keep your account until the end of the billing period so that you can continue using the service until the last day.
If I cancel, what happens to my gift card balance?
If you’ve used a Netflix gift card to pay for your monthly subscription, any unused balance will still be available to you even after you cancel. You will not receive a refund of the unused amount, but you will be able to continue watching content until that balance has been completely depleted.
