How to Cancel Free Trial Subscription

Posted on Posted in How To, Media Files, The Web

eMusic is a great alternative to iTunes in that it offers much of the same catalog of songs (over 2 million songs), works with your iPod too, but costs much less – about 33 cents/song vs a buck at

eMusic even offers a free trial where you can download any 25 free songs to get started.   If you’re doing the math, this is not a token offer for most people.  Since you will pay a buck per song for each of the next 25 song downloads at iTunes, this would means it’s worth $25 to you for the free trial offer.

Joining is simple — and you may want stay after you grab your free mp3 songs because all their songs are DRM free (no copy-protection hassles!)

In anycase, for whatever reason you may want to cancel the free trial at eMusic

Here’s how to cancel your eMusic account . . .


  • Log into your eMusic account (“login link” is at the top right corner)
  • Next, click on the YOUR ACCOUNT link at the top of the page
  • Click on “CHANGE ACCOUNT STATUS” under the Subscription section on the left side list of options
  • Now just choose the reason for cancellation and submit the request

Before they let you go, they offer you a final promo that allows you to get 15 songs/month for $6 which is only 40 CENTS/SONG — I highly recommend that you try this plan if you are the type of person that buys music often. If you buy just 6 songs a month on iTunes, this is a great plan to have — it’s like getting 9 free songs/month!

    It’s clearly one of the free trial promos that is really hassle free.  They don’t trap you, con-you into staying.  If you want to cancel eMusic, there’s an easy way to do it, and they give a straight-forward last-chance promo for those that don’t want to commit to a music service.

    1. Please contact me with the phone number of a person that I can speak to directly concerning the charges on my account. There is a developmentally delayed adult child that has been receiving ring tones. Please discontinue these services and contact me asap.

    2. Polly,

      I don’t think eMusic is the source of rings tones sent to your cell phone nor email since eMusic does not sell ringtones to the best of my knowledge.

      However, to answer your request for contact with eMusic, the eMusic site prefers communication via email not telephone telling by the fact that a customer service tel # is not published anywhere on the site as far as I can see. Very frustrating, I know.

      But here’s a suggestion — you may want to take it up with their media contacts listed on the site, which have direct dials to emusic staff. While these may be contacts in a PR agency on eMusic’s behalf, they should have contact with people within the company directly themselves.

      Good luck.

    3. Camisha,

      Thanks for reading – but we do not work for Just follow the directions in the article above to cancel your emusic account.

    4. Tim,

      Sorry to hear you’re having trouble with eMusic. I’d suggest calling or emailing the 2 contacts above at eMusic directly to see if they can help you out.

      You’d probably be best also to immediately notify your credit card company of the unauthorized charges.

    5. Bonnie — Sorry to hear your anger at eMusic.

      BUT, is NOT!

      I am simply trying to help users (perhaps like you) who want to cancel by showing them exactly how they are to do it in this blog post…

    6. I don’t know who you people think you are but I don’t even have an account through you. But it’s alright because my bank is doing an investigation and from the looks of all the other emails mine won’t be the only one. If this is your way of getting business your just loosing more because of your dishonesty. I would have signed up other hadn’t it been for this.

    7. And another thing. Don’t sit there and email back saying your sorry like you really care because these emails were from January and February and your still ripping people off. It’s March and you ripped me off, so it you really care you’ll quit stealing peoples money because it’s illegal.

    8. Please read comments #3, 5, 7 & 9 above. All of them are trying to point out the fact that THIS WEBSITE,, is NOT

      I am an independent blogger, not the company {Perhaps you should read the ABOUT page for more}.

      While I hear your anger, there’s nothing I can personally do about it.

      But I do suggest that you go and log into the account and follow the instructions above to cancel the subscription immediately to avoid any further charges.

      The previous charges is another issue that you are obviously taking up with your bank.

    9. please cancel me from your program. please last 4 number on my card is 4816

    10. NEFERTARI — Sorry, but as I’ve repeated several times above, this site is not owned or operated by eMusic. Thus I cannot cancel your eMusic account.

      I suggest you try to read and follow the directions in the above blog post or contact eMusic directly.

      Good luck!

    11. Growgh! I subscriped to this Lloyds TSB 35 songs free trial for students… unfortunately I downloaded 36 instead of 35 songs and those ******* charged 87 from my account for an annual subscription. Of course I don’t want it so I’d like to cancel it but am I gonna get any money back? Really hope I can there is at least a way of paying for this month and they return me the rest of my money!:((( anyone with a similar experience?

    12. Emusic charged me an unexpected annual bill, which would have left me without groceries for the next week. Thanks to your site and the Communications Director numbers you published, I was able to call them directly and have the charges reversed.

      They were very courteous and efficient in handling my case.

      Here is a better number 212.
      300.2862. This is their operator. She did not say Emusic when she answered the phone, just her name. Ask for customer service.

    13. TIMBO! Thanks for sharing your experience with us.

      So at least one CONFIRMED telephone number that works is:


      While I personally like and their affordable pricing, not every music service is for every person.

      So hopefully other people who check out the free trial and download their free 50 songs (which is literally worth $49.50 if you think about purchasing 50 songs off but don’t want to continue, this is a helpful avenue.

    14. Hi. I cannot get into the emusic site anymore- I get a Timeout Page Load (?)
      I have been trying for a month now. A tech at emusic suggested I contact my internet provider- at&t and I get the same Timeout page when I google them…. All this happened when I changed internet providers from a local one to at&t.
      Any help would be welcomed! thanks, diana

    16. emusic is a big rip off i tried to cancel my account an they wanted me to put in my card # so they could take my money

    17. Ihave been trying to cancel this emusic account. Have called the number that is posted on their website all i get is an automated teller. I followed the instructions to cancel by clicking on account and i get no response from that button nor the profile button. It just keep requesting me to pick a plan. The music that I purchased did not download it expired during the download and i cannot re-download. once I signed up the words were readable now i need a magnifying glass to read their policies. This has became and is a hassel.

    18. i was just replying to a questionaire on my walmart reciept—made the mistake of
      looking at emusic, not knowing who they were. next thing i know they are emailing me to select some music [ 7 days are up by now! ] and i can’t find out how to cancel something i never signed up for to begin with. i don’t even have a password yet!

    19. Thank you. I also could not get to the account section, so the phone number was very helpful. The rep was nice enough and she said I won’t be billed. I’ll let you know if anything changes!

    20. Heh, wow. I can’t believe reading comments (the really old ones) people were yelling at you, if they’re that retarded, they sort of deserved to get ripped off. Thank you for this article! Helped.
