Plan Change

I have a quick question. I'm waiting for a good promotion and wondering how do you change plans if you can't do so on self serve?

Normally, self-serve works properly, but you need to know what plan you want, and 'future date' it to occur at your next renewal for optimal efficency.

 

30 or 90 day plan?   Schedule it on or before Day 25 or Day 85 so that the system is prepared for your change.  Some processes in my mind seem to take a full day or two to be fully setup.  Giving yourself at least 5 days is the prudent step.

 

If you're asking because  your plan is expired/suspended, you must ask for assistance from the Mods, as an expired plan can not be changed directly.

 

**EDIT** Edited to change "Scheduled" to schedule.

You can change your plan through selfserve.  Simply sign into your account, and click "change plan" under "Account Status".  You can then select your plan the same way you did when you originally signed up.  You can test out different combinations to see the price before actually making a change.  If there are promotions, you will see the pricing change accordingly.

I don't think there is a choice of date if you are future dating your plan. In my self serve account it only says "change on next renewal date" and the pop-up window then shows your renewal date:

That's correct.  If you are future dating your change, it has to be on your renewal date.  But when changing, you do also have the option of changing immediately, instead of waiting for your renewal date.

@wetcoaster, no you're right, you can not select a particular day to have it activate, that's a fixed point.

 

I'm suggesting, you "set it up" at least 5 days before the renewal process begins, as it seems to take a day or two for some processes to complete.

 

I'm simply saying plan ahead, don't wait until the last minute.

@JDT

Just be aware that an immediate plan change means that you will be charged the full amount of the new plan immediately, don't get a pro-rated refund on your existing plan and that you loose any data that might still be available to you on your existing plan.

@stonechucker

 

I suggest that people who see a plan or promo they think they might want to change to initiate a future dated plan change ASAP.

This would avoid disappointment if it turns out to be one of those flash sales with unanounced end date that we've seen this summer. If, shortly before the renewal date, they figure that sticking with their existing plan is the better choice, they can always cancel the future dated change.

@wetcoaster, absolutely, as I did avise (in a roundabout way),  "on or before" day 25 or 85.  As soon as possible, when you know you want it when a promo happens.

 

Just a regular plan change because your needs change, not such a hurry, but again, as asoon as possible.
