What Happens to the Account?

The membership account will be deactivated, and we will send you a confirmation of your cancellation request. If you request a refund, you will receive a refund for the remaining balance on the account. You will be sent a refund in the payment method that the membership was processed - (check, credit card, or Paypal). 
We will also notify our member benefit providers (those businesses that offer products and services to our members) that the account has been canceled. Please know it may take up to 12 weeks to fully update all systems related to account cancellation. We apologize for any mail you may receive from us in the meantime that's related to the membership.
