Downgrade but keep paid perks until the end of cycle?

Hello, I know it is very sad to see me go, however I am wondering if I could keep my premium perks (before the downgrade) until the end of the term? That would be awesome!

Unfortunately our billing system doesn't support that :-(

Still, I see that your last payment was 27 August, so if you upgrade again then downgrade on 27 September, you'll be billed for another month, but if you drop us a line (with a link to this forum thread) then we'll refund that payment, so you'll get the same effect -- would that work?

Unfortunately not. A certain individual whom I share the card with is putting me in a spending timeout (aka I won't be able to use his card for some time). It's fine, thanks anyways.
