As I've shared earlier (last week), I suffered through identity theft and my cards had to be cancelled. And my membership with Netflix expires this month. So I've largely been avoiding them.
Although it was not February 1st yet, every time I go to the site I have a huge banner at the top telling me my credit card is about to expire. Actually, it's not. It's just no good.
And I got four e-mails -- automated e-mails -- from Netflix about this in addition.
One credit card finally came in the mail today so I used it for Netflix and the banner's gone. But if they they're helping you with that banner or that they're helping you with four e-mails in less than two weeks, they're insane.
(Did I owe money to Netflix? No. It comes out on the 8th, which was before my cards were cancelled. So they got January's payment. I don't owe again until February 8th.)
It was irritating, it was frustrating, it was humiliating and, honestly, it's making me think I can live on Hulu Plus with a lot less problems. That may be what I switch to shortly.
I don't like being treated like a deadbeat especially when I don't owe any money.
