Being charged when I cancelled my premium subscription

Being charged when I cancelled my premium subscription

Back in January I got billed for a month of Spotify Premium Membership.  I had used the free trial, and was expecting the trial to simply end, but the membership continued and I got billed.  Shrugging it off, the same day I am billed I go online and cancel the membership for next month so that I do not get charged again.  A month later(early February) I notice membership is still active so I assume there must be something messed up, so I ignored it assuming I did not actually have Spotify premium.  However, I got billed once more today.  I cancelled my premium subscription yet still got billed.  I deem this unacceptable because I did not want to be charged at all, and now have been charged twice.  I would like some assistance please.

Hi Jamaicanmole,

 

I'm just writing you an email now--keep an eye on your inbox.

Hi,

i am also having a similar issue when my Spotify subscription was cancelled after my facebook was disconnected. my sub went back to the free version and asked me to upgrade again to the prem. which i did. But when i check my checking account, i saw i was charged twice in the same month. i want to be refunded my 10 bucks that i assume was charged when i was forced to upgrade again even though i already had the prem version. how can you remedy the situation?

Hi Apollouno, please have a look in your inbox as I've just sent an email your way. 

 

 

I am being charged twice a month within 3 days of each payment for the past two months. I have cancelled my subscription two months ago why am I bring charged to begin with and why am I being charged twice?

I'm hoping someone can help resolve this.

 

Eyesharr - This is really something you'd need to discuss with the payments team. If you could head to 'About us' above, then 'Contact Form'. They'll get back to you as soon as they can.

I have had similar issues with spotify. I signed up for Premium last year and decided after a couple months that I couldn't afford it so I went through the steps listed online to cancel it. I thought everything was fine and went through until a couple months later I saw I was still being charged so I canceled again! I just checked my banking account again and see I've been charged for the last three months! I am really really frustrated.  I wanted to cancel months and months ago. I do not understand why it won't let me cancel. There is no contact information to call spotify either so I feel like I'm being forced to pay for a service I don't want. PLEASE HELP ME OUT, this is beyond frustrating.

hi, this same thing just happened to me. i cancelled my subscription a week or so ago maybe even longer as i didn't have the money this month to be able to afford it, however woke up this morning with a notification on my phone from Paypal to say that i have paid £9.99 to Spotify. 

 

this hasn't happened before when i've cancelled my subscription. I need the money refunding as it's going to make me overdrawn but no one is replying to my emails

 

any help would be appreciated

 

thanks

Can you let us know your 8-digit case number and we can ask for it to be chased up for you? It is in the automated email reply.
