Do They Know it 2018?
I was listening to Mac Power Users episode 459 My Life is a Subscription and one of the apps they talked about that interested me was Bobby This is an app that helps you keep track of your subscriptions, which is something I have needed to do for a while. While adding my subscriptions to Bobby, I realized I had subscribed to the Wall Street Journal, when they were having a special $1.00 for two months. Those two months are running out and I realized I was about to be billed $35 for a newspaper that I was not reading. I went to cancel the subscription and this being 2018 I went to my account on the Wall Street Journal website to do it. No such luck, the only way to cancel your Wall Street Journal subscription is to call them. This is where bad words start running thru my brain and I worked my way up to calling them. I have to admit that it was fairly painless and only took about five minutes to complete. However, having to call to cancel something I signed up for online is one of my pet peeves, I know why they do it, but that does not mean I have to like it.
