Use Virtual Card Providers to add limited funds to cancel

There is a new way to get around the cancellation headache that ensures you won’t get charged but is just as, if not more, timely than the normal options.
Follow these steps to cancel using a virtual card provider:
  1. Go to one of the virtual card providers (e.g., DoNotPay, Privacy, X1)
  2. Go through their onboarding process to sign up for a card
  3. Create a card by adding Personal Info and Funding Source
  4. Add funding limit of $2 (this is to ensure authorization charge goes through)
  5. Sign-up for Glo and ensure payment goes through (these prepaid cards often get rejected)
  6. Set reminder(s) in your calendar when your Glo free trial is about to expire and evaluate if you want to keep or cancel your subscription
  7. Enjoy the subscription for the month
  8. When your reminder goes off, go back to virtual card site:
    1. To Cancel: Lower funding limit from $2 to $0
    2. To Keep: Look up the plan you want and increase funding limit to the monthly amount OR switch to your personal credit or debit card
While the virtual card option is a manual process, maybe more so than the old-school version, it is definitely safe from getting caught with an unwanted bill. However, you are limiting yourself from enjoying the subscription if you want to continue. Also, be careful, some of these card providers are subscription-based so you might get caught with an unwanted recurring payment from them!

4. What‘s the fine print I should know about?

Glo’s free trial does not have too many traps but there are a few things you should be aware of!
  1. Once you cancel the free trial, you’ll not be able to go sign up or continue the free trial again, which shouldn’t be a surprise.
  2. If you go to the “payment” section of account settings, they’ll show you exactly how many days are left in your free trial, so use that as a reminder as well!
  3. Also just to make the experience better, you can store Glo vids on your phone or tablet using their app so that you can take classes anywhere anytime.
