what is the point of cancelling? You don't get a refund.

As others have mentioned: yes, you can.

I guess it just depends on what rep you get. I do know they were just going to process the cancellation, give their sales pitch, and say goodbye. If I hadn't asked for it, I wouldn't have gotten it.

How can they give you a refund? The $21.99 was for the first month and that is gone. I am not that hard up for money to have to cancel for a couple of bucks. I already made $28 on the deal, now I have to put the screws on them for more? Some people have a lot of nerve. Plus I admit that I do like the WSJ.com

I agree it's nice to have already "made" $28 on the offer, so yes, there's not much psychological pull to try to gain more. I think I failed to mention that the refund is pro-rated. In other words, I only consumed 47 days of my subscription. I can no longer log in and consume more, so I've been given that part of my subscription back. I don't think it's an ethical issue here, or "a lot of nerve"... but to each his own.

Got mine as well. All as described. Enjoy the WSJ so will keep it at least 3 months. May cancel the online edition though.

They screwed me over, told me I didn't qualify for some reason and then offered a 2 month subscription extension. Bunch of @$$holes, all of them.

I just called 800-975-3913 and was told that the promo was for Amazon gc after three months of subscription (so the gc would be presented upon paid subscription for 4th month). The rep I spoke with (I was calling them to cancel) told me that the promo was confusing so WSJ dropped it, but that she could see I had subscribed when the promo was active and that it would be honored. I would say definitely a YMMV situation.
