It didn't work...
Last month I was charged $14 again instead of the $8 it should be, plus the foreign transaction fee. I have no idea why dealing with them takes so long, but I spent an entire hour with their support team, even though I was able to directly quote what happened last time (had a log of the conversation). Hmm, I checked the box for a copy of the log from this one too, but it never arrived. That's a problem... (Sigh.)
The "solution" this time? Not just cancel and reopen my account, but cancel it, delete it from their systems, and make a whole new account. For some other service, that might not be a big deal at all, but that means I lost all my lists and progress on various shows and such.
On top of that, I need to keep track of this so that they don't mess up and charge me too much again. As it stands now I should have:
1 month free (for being charged at all this month)
4 months free (from being overcharged multiple months last time)
$6 credit to my next month after that (for the difference in what I paid vs should have paid this month, if I had has to pay at all)
The bigger issue on top of that is that I should be charged the $8/month "current customer" fee for the basic account level (or what's currently basic: two screens, HD where available), not the "new customer" fee of $9/month. I really hope I remember to check that five months from now...
I hope this settles the issue. I'm sure Luxembourg is a nice place, but having my payments be sent through leads to nothing but problems.
