Pausing Your Netflix Subscription

Did you know that you could pause your Netflix [3] subscription?

We’ll be going on vacation for parts of July and August and won’t be able to take advantage of our Netflix subscription. Rather than canceling the subscription, Netflix offers an option where you can put the subscription on hold for 7 – 90 days. During that time, the subscription will be suspended, you won’t be able to watch anything, you won’t be sent any DVDs, and you’ll be required to return any rented DVDs within 7 days or be charged for them.

How to Pause Your Netflix Subscription

It’s actually quite simple to put it on hold and you can do it online.

  1. Log into your Netflix account.
  2. Click on “Your Account” in the upper right.
  3. Then click on “Put Membership on Hold.”
  4. Then, enter a date and you’re all set! (it’s an old screenshot :))

You can login at anytime to take it off hold or it’ll reactivate once it reaches that date.
