Joining a gym? Buying a car?
If you sign the contract and want to cancel, can you?
Alexzandrea says she spent too much on her gym.
She says, "like way out of my budget. I came home and my mom gives me a disappointed look and just stares at me."
Good going mom.
The death stare saved your kid a lot of money.
And a shout out to you Alexzandrea.
Yes, you can cancel a gym membership within 3 business days, written and sent certified mail for proof or delivered to the club.
So where else do you have a 3-day cooling off period? Check your contract to see what's offered.
But when it comes to state law:
Buy a car? No cooling off. It's a done deal unless you have it in the contract.
Get a call and order something by phone?
Yes, you can cancel within 3 business days from the delivery of the merchandise.
Cell phone contracts?
Arizona law does not give you a cooling off period.
But, major cell phone carriers will give you 14 days to cancel without penalty.
Sign up for a dance studio?
Yes. You have 15 days to cancel.
Buy security alarm protection?
Well, if you contacted them, usually no.
But, if they sold you a system in your house, yes.
You have 3 business days to cancel.
Most in-home sales can be cancelled within 3 days, with exceptions.
But you also have 3 days to cancel sales made at a seller's temporary location.
Think expos, convention center shows, hotels and fairs.
Even those financial seminars at restaurants.
You have 3 days to cancel in writing.
