Moviepass Cancels Unlimited Plan For Yearly Subscribers
Moviepass has sent out emails to yearly subscribers and it isn’t good news. Even though they took your money up front, a year in advance, Moviepass cancels unlimited plan for yearly subscribers. It doesn’t get much lower than that. But wait! Moviepass is allowing you to get a refund on your yearly subscription. They give you a super generous window of 7 days…what a great company (sarcasm font)! Run for the hills as fast as you can (not sarcasm font).
There should be a link in the email they sent out where you can cancel the plan. I would suggest you do it since Moviepass continues to change their rules on a whim. The ship is sinking fast so get what you can, while you can. It should be noted if you cancel you can not sign up for Moviepass for 9 months. I would be surprised if they are even around for 9 more months but that is another topic. If you decide to stick with the program you will be capped at 3 movies per month. And even then people have trouble using their pass at the theater.
Take the refund money and go sign up for a stable plan like Sinemia or AMC Stubs A-List (the best one in my opinion). If you purchased your plan from Costco people have reported being successful canceling it and getting a full refund. Whether or not you think it is moral to get a full refund for something you used for many months is up to you. But it is an option.

I find it ridiculous that Moviepass decides they can change a plan that was paid for in advance and then only give a 7 day window for a refund. This has been one of the most bizarre business stories in a while. They had a fast meteoric rise and then an epic and quick crash. I did enjoy it while it lasted but canceled my plan last month. I didn’t want to ride the roller coaster any longer.
