Finishing up your Redbox Instant free 30-day trial and have decided you don’t want to go through with the next month’s renewal? Don’t worry, I’ll show you step by step how to cancel your account so your credit card will never be charged and you’ll be able to save you money for another service like Hulu Plus or Netflix. To get the most out of your trial, I recommend waiting until a few days before your billing date to do this cancellation process.
