How to Cancel a People Subscription

If you are a subscriber to People magazine and no longer want to receive the periodical, you can cancel online, through email and over the phone. You can cancel at any time during your subscription period.

People will send a refund for any issues remaining in your subscription. It takes several days for the cancellation to go into effect, so you may get a bill even after cancelling. You can ignore any additional invoices.


Log into your online People account through the Customer Service page. You can log in using your zip code, email and account number, which is located above your name on your mailing label and on your invoice and renewal notices. Or, you can log in with your postal address and email. Choose the "Cancel Your Subscription" link located on the left-hand side of page. Verify that you want to cancel and hit "submit."

Over the Phone

You can always call People's customer service line at 1-877-604-6512. Give the customer service representative your name and address or account number and she will cancel your subscription.


You can also send a general email to People through the form on the Contact Customer Service page. The secure form asks for your name and address. You can also supply your email address, phone number and account number. A customer service rep emails you back to walk you through the cancellation process.
