Arnelly, all you half to do is skip the month . I believe by the 5 th of each month & you won't get billed the $ 39.99. If you don't let them know , then your billed. But you have the credit & can order any time you want. I have ordered a lot & I have also skipped a month. They are great , I love them. Did you read before you signed up to them?
