    Didn’t know that was an option. I get all access as a perk from 247 sports. No commercials.

    I see this expires in a few days though and since I used the code for a free month I can't add it but thanks for the head's up!

    I used that code as a returning subscriber early in the morning of 1/27.

    Since I am about to need to pay soon if I don't cancel, I planned to cancel then wait for a few Picard eps to build up and resubscribe. When I clicked cancel, I was offered 50% off for the next 2 months (I'd earlier selected the $9.99/mo commercial free plan), so I went with that.

    Anyone have trouble switching to PayPal ?

    I attempted to cancel my account and they through up the 50% off for 2 months. I agreed to that and chose to use PayPal instead of updating the credit card information since I cancelled the card they have on file. I consistently got this error on my iPad and iPhone.

    CBS help suggested using a desktop. I told them that since I can’t do that, we will let it fail and let the account get cancelled.

    Today, when the old credit card didn’t work, I got the notice.

    I try PayPal one more time and get the same error. Cool. Buh-bye, CBS until another promotion comes around.

    Then, the credit card company supplied them the new one and they charged me the full amount instead of the 50% off for two months . I called CBS and got someone to cancel my account and escalated to have the one month payment reversed. I checked my account and the new credit card doesn’t appear. It does look like I still have access for the month though.

    I think I’ll use Amazon going forward unless I get a freebie 30 day code. I might have to get on a desktop to turn on PayPal though.

    I bought a new Roku TV, the other day but have had other Rokus for years, so it's not a new account.

    Beryl, sorry to hear about your troubles. I've never used Paypal with CBS AA.
    And, as expected, I got this alert my Chase credit card:
    "As you requested, we are notifying you of an online, phone or mail order charge. This charge of ($USD) 4.99 at CBS ALL ACCESS has been authorized on 02/27/2020 5:11:01 AM EST."

    My account shows that I'm on Commercial Free (Monthly), $9.99/mo but with discount 50% off 2 Months.

    Mine said the next billing date is March 28th
    Looks like you got 2 months somehow :)

    Edit: I just went to the website and mine now says April 28th.
    (My guess is that they'll catch and correct this later)

    Mine shows April 25th, but I think that's because I just had a payment go through the other day. So I'm paid up until March and then the free month kicks in.

    Hm. I tried to use INTERROGATION but my account says I have 100% off 1 month of "Limited Commercials" not "Commercial Free". If that's what it really is, I won't be using this at all... I have no time in my life for commercials!

    You have a choice before you apply the code and check-out to select Commercial Free or Limited Commercials. I selected and got Commercial Free (Watching e2 of Picard now, commercial free :))

    Just wanted to post how thrilled I was to remember to cancel my CBSAA sub and get the 2 months at 50% offer ... 15 minutes before midnight.

    I was very careful to select commercial-free every time... I had to try multiple times because apparently it doesn't work well with Firefox; the page where you enter your credit card and code didn't work: after clicking the "submit" button there it just sat forever. Eventually I had to switch to Chrome to complete the account subscription. I guess somehow in all that mess, it reset my account type incorrectly.

    I looked all over for any way to upgrade my account to commercial-free without losing the free month but there didn't seem to be one. Even the "please don't go" free month came back as limited commercials.

    So, I just unsubscribed. See ya, CBSAA!
