How do I know if the coupon was successfully applied?
If your coupon code was applied properly, you will see messages similar to the ones highlighted in the example below detailing the discount applied.
I already have a paid subscription/free trial. Can I use my code?
No. Your coupon code can only be applied to an account that is currently not in a Premium state.
As a new Premium subscriber, can I use my coupon in addition to the one month free trial that is normally offered to new users?
No. Coupons cannot be combined with another promotion.
I just cancelled my paid subscription so I can sign up again and use my code. Why isn't this working?
Your coupon code can only be applied to an account that is currently not in a Premium state.
Cancelling your subscription turns off subscription auto-renewal but does not revoke Premium access.
If you have cancelled your premium subscription you will still have Premium access until the end of your current billing period.
What credit cards does Gem accept as forms of payment?
We currently accept MasterCard and VISA credit cards on CBC GEM, as well as Debit MasterCard or VISA Debit cards.
