It's great when a product, subscription, or service offers you a free trial. But often, you'll be asked to enter your credit card information so that you can be charged when the trial is over.

Avoid surprise charges by setting a reminder to make a decision about membership before the trial period is up. You can decide to keep your membership and do nothing, or cancel before the end of the trial period. We recommend cancelling your trial at least a full day before it ends so that you have enough time to go through the cancellation process.

Here are a few ideas on how to set reminders:

  • Post-it note - stick one on your monitor or desk
  • Create a calendar event for the day before the trial is up
  • Use a reminder app - check out your device's app store for lots of options
