This is great news for all Mastercard holders!

Mastercard will not automatically bill subsequent months after any trial subscription expires - cool!

Keep in mind that this only applies to subscriptions of physical goods, not digital services.  Initial reports of this change were a little overblown.

Yes, that does make a difference. Thank you for pointing that out!

 

This is a step in the right direction - for both Mastercard and the consumer.
