    Whenever I try to access my account it tells me to "go back from whence you came". IOW, it wants me to go back to the original platform i signed up. My (now sold) Samsung TV? My new Roku TV?! My phone? CBS sucks. I will call them and let them know how bad they are. I know I can call cuz I remember calling them about their closed captions being 5 seconds behind on PICARD!!

    I've only had my renewal date revert once. It was after applying a code someone posted here that was likely only intended to be used once. But not really sure, because they don't give a reason when it happens.

    My subscription was already expired so using NFLONCBS worked for a free month. Then I logged out and logged back in and went to Manage Account (not sure if that's exactly what it says), clicked Apply Coupon Code, typed in FOOTBALL and another free month. Thanks to @Tony_T and others for the tips. I continue my streak of never having to pay anything for this service :)

    My subscription was set to expire on Feb 7. I went to cancel and try the new code NFLONCBS, but when I hit cancel I got a message box saying We hate to see you go try another free month on us, So I redeemed that and now my subscription ends on Mar 7th. I guess I'll see what coupons are available in late Feb.

    Same with me when I canceled early. I had to wait until the initial expiration date when my access ended to reapply and then apply the coupon

    I guess I need to cancel my subscription and see if I can do the same thing.

    I hope they continue with the liberal use of free months when they move to Paramount+. I get probably half the year free, if not more, without actually paying anything. It's very easy to watch stuff just on the months I get it and then wait for the next code once there's something new I want to see.

    Out of an abundance of caution I just checked my CBSAA account and my 'FOOTBALL' freebie extension month has been rolled-back, with my next billing date again set to tomorrow, Jan. 23rd. So I've cancelled and will cross my fingers that one of the codes works once my subscription goes inactive.

    I see the advantage because I can watch the shows commercial free. They also seem to have multiple seasons of most shows (though The Amazing Race only had the current season when I started watching the last couple of episodes the other day). I pay yearly.

    Amazing Race, Survivor, a couple of the dramas (though I'm way behind) and a couple of the sitcoms.

    As expected, the additional month was cancelled, but I’m free to Feb 20th with NFLONCBS, so that takes me to the end of The Stand (e9 on 02/11), so I’m good :)

    Just checked mine and I've been rolled back too. Oh well. I just cancelled again. Nothing I'm watching at the moment so not sweating it.

    Just enter the code after your free trial ends. Canceling does not end the trial period. Once you no longer have access, you can try for another free month (the coupon box that may or may not show up during a free trial never “holds”)

    I cancelled earlier today and just now tried the FOOTBALL coupon for a free month. And it extended me for another month for free. I'll check it again tomorrow to see if it stays. If so that will keep me subscribed until The STand ends.

    When I cancelled a few days ago, right on the web site, I got another offer for 2 months for 50% off. I declined.

    If you only canceled before the trial ended, then CBSAA will probably take that back. Wait till the trial ends, and you can no longer access CBSAA, then re-sign up and add the code when you get to the payment screen.

    my last day of my free month is today... but I'll cancel for now and then maybe wait a month before trying to get another free month. I still need to finish up The Stand and then I want to check out Clarice after that has a few episodes in.

    I also noticed when I watched the last episode of the stand, that the HDR bubble popped up... so having dolby digital and HDR now on some of these shows is nice.

    So my coupon box finally showed up but the two football related codes aren't working so I guess I have to wait for another to show up here.
