Tad_Waxpole: Try cancelling your SiriusXM radio membership.
OregonVet: When my wife's commute changed she went to cancel her Curves (a gym) membership and they gave her a terrible runaround. Excuses ranged from only a manager can do it, manager is on vacation, manager repeatedly wouldn't take/return calls, needed it in writing out to lunch at 10am, all sorts of shiat./csb
Odd Bird: Six months after cancelling I'm starting to get collections letters.
gingerjet: When I cancelled my membership at Lifetime fitness I sent them a certified letter, called them, and then reported the credit card as lost. They continued to try to bill me and sent me vaguely threatening letters for months afterwards. Then at around six months or so they switched their tone and asked me to come back at half my old monthly rate./now at LA Fitness//cheaper///less hipsters////cuter guys/slashies!
Odd Bird: Tad_Waxpole: Try cancelling your SiriusXM radio membership.Add Clear (wireless ISP) to the list. Six months after cancelling I'm starting to get collections letters.And subby speaks the truth (agrivating story from friend, not worth sharing).

I mean they told her they couldn't cancel it. My wife was on the phone for 20 minutes, the rep kept putting her on hold, of course to either look up or ask for a counter argument."Look, she's 90, she is on a small fixed income, she can't afford this""So what about..." yeah, he kept coming back with that bullshiat. So my wife asked me to get on the phone. I'm a pretty mean sounding person to begin with. So when I got one the line, he tried to say I didn't have persmission to talk to him, which was crap because I was the one who called in for my grandmother to set up the account for her.After I told him to just close the account...and that was my response to everything he said.Just close the account. Just close the account."I can't, my computer is down."I really wished I had recorded the conversation, it would have been great internet fodder and would have gotten the a-hole fired./I f-ing hate comcast
mcreadyblue: I use the report the credit card stolen trick too. Citibank never seems to mind.
Tyrone Biggums: mcreadyblue: I use the report the credit card stolen trick too. Citibank never seems to mind.A friend of mine does this as well. She never had any problems either.I wish I would have done this with Gold's. This is how they used to operate: they would sign you up for a yearly contract. When that year was up, they would automatically sign you up for another year. If you wanted to cancel, you would have to send a certified letter to them one month prior to your contract expiring. Tough shiat if you were two months into your contract. You have to wait another 10 before you could cancel.
Pumpernickel bread: Bally's has been like this for a long time now. I had a girlfriend back in the 90s that was tortured by Bally's in a similar manner. Best health club I have ever seen or heard of is Harbor Athletic Club near Madison, WI. Now, I am a member of Golds, the cockroach of fitness clubs. Poor quality, but they are everywhere. Haven't tried to cancel the Gold's membership yet, so don't know if I will get the Bally's treatment.
the_rhino: You all sound like a bunch of passive-aggressive pansies. Try acting like adults and I bet the world treats you better.
SCUBA_Archer: Did it take subby more than 26 minutes to cancel his membership?
SCUBA_Archer: I need to call Sirius. Just got a bill for $225 for a year of radio. I don't really want to cancel, but I figure they'll give me a nice rate to stay on if I threaten it. Anyone squeeze any good deals out of them lately?
TheGreatGazoo: The last time I called them they seemed shocked that I wanted to cancel my subscription for a car I sold. "What part of I'm not paying for someone else to listen to your service" didn't even phase them.
Sir Not Sure The Unscannable: This. I recently signed up and have had no real qualms. Until the guy who came out to install the cable found out that I'm being charged 7$ monthly to rent the modem even though I bought the modem & access point at the time of registration for the service. He called home and found out that Comcast can't stop the 7$ charge, only the warehouse that sent the devices can, and that Comcast has sent them an email to inquire. Fan-farking-tastic.
