Dropbox 20% refund for annual plan

+6 Deal Score
3,351 Views
I was trying to figure out a way to prepay Dropbox for another couple years to take advantage of my Amex 40% offers on 2 different Amex cards. My plan auto renewed right before the offer appeared. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way to do this.

However, on a whim, I clicked "cancel plan" at the bottom of the "Plan" tab in my account settings. I was immediately offered a 20% refund of this year's subscription fee if I stayed on board, making my total cost that of last year's (before the price hike).

Hope this helps someone. YMMV

So actually Dropbox could offer same price as before to retain a client...but if you did not "cancel", they would just charge you $120...

Mine ran up today and just got an email that my Dropbox sync has stopped (I guess til I pay up and renew my subscription). I will have to hold out til Black Friday to see if there's another prepaid year Amazon deal like last year. I have an Amex cash prefered card and don't have the 40% offer. Frown

I guess I'm not getting this offer. I clicked Cancel, and the window says "Here's what you should know" with three downgrades that will take effect Aug. 1, 2020. At what point did you get the 20% offer?

I've currently got a year's worth waiting to begin in my account, which is last year's Amazon deal, which I forgot to activate until this year -- reminded when I saw the renewal on my credit card bill. OOPS! I did get the 40% discount AMEX offer, and it doesn't expire until May 5. I might prepay for another year with it if there's not an Amazon offer this year.
