Many online and print periodicals, such as the New York Times and Washington Post, allow online subscription cancellations on their websites. Each type of online periodical has a different cancellation policy, and many provide multiple means to cancel a subscription, such as by phone, email or a personal account online.
The New York Times provides an extensive cancellation and refund policy on its website. Individuals may call or email Customer Care in order to change or cancel a digital subscription. Different policies cover monthly and four-week subscriptions, annual subscriptions and changes to content or access.
The Washington Post allows subscribers to cancel their subscriptions at any time. Direct online subscribers can cancel their subscriptions through their individual account profiles. Even those who cancel earlier in a billing period can still view articles through the remaining time of the billing period. Upon cancellation, the Washington Post ceases to charge the account at the beginning of the next billing cycle, at which point, only a sample number of online articles remain available for reading. The Washington Post's website also includes a list of phone numbers and links to provide information regarding cancellation for users that signed up through other avenues, such as Amazon and iTunes,
