I'm confused over Adobe's cancellation and billing policy and was wondering if anyone could help. I signed up to the Illustrator free trial, which I was unable to cancel the day it was up as "payment was due". So I kept it for a month further at the price of 30 quid a month, and then noticed the time had come for the second month's payment. I decided to cancel the day of payment as I had ended up in the same situation again of not cancelling early enough, and I presumed that, upon cancellation, the money would either be refunded or I would have access for the rest of the month and then it would lapse. I cancelled the same day I paid.
What has actually happened is the money went out of my account on 4th Jan, and Adobe took away my access from the moment I cancelled. There has been no mention of a refund. Have I just paid this company 30 quid for no product at all? It seems really unfair for them to not allow me the month they have just taken my money for, or else a refund of that money. Am I missing something? There appears to be no ability to phone or speak to anybody about this issue, as my paid membership and support was also cancelled immediately... Thanks for any guidance.

Thank you John! Turns out I just didn't spot that chat bubble despite looking for it lots of times - thank you for describing what to look for on the page. All the best
Did you read the terms you agreed to when you joined? They are not hard to understand.
Subscription & Cancellation Terms:
Phone customer service M-F during normal business hours.
Yes I had read them and yes they weren't hard to understand (but don't let me get in the way of you making people feel small!)
For anyone wondering in a similar situation, this wasn't in the normal terms, Adobe made a mistake and
I received a full refund.

Glad online chat was able to resolve your account/billing problem. 🙂
