How does the Better Grades Guarantee Work?

I was told I would receive a refund recently. Why do I show another charge for the same timeframe?

In some cases, you will find the refund was actually processed faster before the original charge for the membership.You should see on your statement one credit (refund) and one debit (charge), which nets the total at $0. If that’s not what you see, please click Submit an Email and provide the information below so we can take a look at this for you:

  • If PayPal was used, provide your PayPal email address
  • If a credit or debit card was used:
    • Full name on credit card
    • Type of credit card
    • Last four digits on the card
    • Zip code of card used
  • Amount charged
  • Date of charge

I didn’t pay in U.S. Dollars. Why was I refunded a different amount?

If you are located outside of the United States, there is an exchange rate for currency that applies to all transactions. The exchange rate may be one amount on the day the purchase is made, and another rate the day the refund is issued.

We refund the exact U.S. dollar amount that was charged, so if the exchange rate differs, the amount returned will be different.
