Chegg Allows Its Users to Pause Subscription Plans
Chegg wants to retain its users in every way possible, and if you know you’ll be using Chegg again in the near future, Chegg’s subscription pausing feature makes things convenient for you.
When you pause your Chegg subscription plan, your current subscription plan will still be active until the last day of your next billing cycle. After the last day of your current month’s subscription cycle, users will not be charged
Simply by pressing the “Pause subscription“, you can also select how many months you’d like to pause the subscription.
Pausing your subscription on Chegg will not suspend your billing if you subscribed through iTunes or Google Play. If you purchased your subscription through iTunes or Google Play, you must manage it through those platforms.
Resuming your Chegg subscription
After the selected pause duration, your subscription will be reactivated and you will be automatically charged the monthly recurring fee for your specific subscription plan.
If you ever need to manually resume your plan immediately, Chegg says you will be “charged a pro-rated amount for the current billing cycle, after which you will be charged your normal monthly rate”.
