How would they get scammed?

Making a new account every time ur free trial runs out makes no sense. Besides u cant have multiple accounts so chess.com will just start closing them all or even IP-ban u. Blargs right, I don't see why they need u to provide ur credit card details to get access to the 7 day trial. 

 

People might use a VPN ;-;

I used the free trial about 3 years ago but cancelled it after about 6 months because I was too busy to study and practice. About a year ago they started offering me the free trial again, so I took it thinking I could study a bit more, but they did charge me the full monthly amount right away. I didn't mind but I found it to be fishy so I didn't buy going forward.

The onus is on you to make sure you cancel the free trial, before the end of the seventh day . If you fail to do this , you can’t complain if you’re charged.

it should not charge on the seventh when the day is not over but ok xD

Here's an example. If you sign up for a trial at noon one day,  it will automatically charge after noon 7 days later. You still get a full 7 days worth of the trial. It will also charge based on the option chosen at the top of the screen; it defaults to yearly and you have to manually change it to monthly if that is what you wanted.

 

If you opened a ticket requesting a refund, you will get it; it may take a little time due to high ticket loads.

Perhaps they charge you after the 7 days trial? I'm not too sure myself.

That's what they do, yeah. My problem is with the whole paradigm of asking for credit card information upfront and setting things up so that a subscription begins (and is charged) immediately after the trial ends without any further input from the client. They're hoping people forget to cancel and just roll with it. A lot of places do this, as it's unfortunately become a very common practice.

They aren't hoping for that.  You can cancel the renewal the instant you start your free premium trial.  You will still get the free trial.

Folks....if you dont want to be charged, do not submit your cc info.

This is not a leap year, it's Aronian year!!!!

Ow
Knock it out, this
Super highways, coast to coast
Easy to get anywhere
On the transcontinental overload
Just slide behind the wheel
How does it feel?
When there's no destination that's too far
And somewhere on the way
You might find out who you are
Living in America
Eye to eye, station to station
Living in America
Hand to hand, across the nation
Living in America
Got to have a celebration
Rock my soul
Smokestack, fatback
Many miles of railroad track
All night radio, keep on runnin' through
Gon' rock 'n' roll your soul
All night diners, keep you awake, hey
On black coffee and a hard roll
You might have to walk the fine line
And, you might take the hard line
But everybody's working overtime
Living in America
Eye to eye, station to station
Living in America
