There is no doubt that Blue Apron is among the best and most popular meal delivery services around. However, that does not mean that you will never find yourself wondering how to cancel Blue Apron. If you are already asking yourself this question, we have everything you need to know about the process here.
There are a number of reasons why you may decide to cancel your Blue Apron subscription or skip a week of orders. Your plans for the following week may change, you may decide to go out of town, or you may simply no longer crave the food that is on the current menu. Although Blue Apron does work hard on providing you with new meal ideas every week, the variety of the meals on the menu may just not be enough for you or may not be in accordance with your taste and preferences. Vegetarians may more often find themselves wondering how to cancel Blue Apron because there are simply not as many choices for those who abstain from eating meat. The same is true for people who have special dietary needs. Finally, many people are unpleasantly surprised by the fact that Blue Apron does not exactly provide you with every single ingredient you need for the full meal. While they do send you most of the food you need, you are still required to shop for the basics, like flour, bread, milk and such.
The cancellation process itself is rather simple. If you have decided to cancel Blue Apron, all you need to do is send an email with your request to [email protected] Soon, you should receive an email from the same address, with clear instructions you need to follow in order to complete the process. However, keep in mind that all the orders you have placed that have already been processed will be charged. In order to avoid paying for the undesired order, go to the “Upcoming” page of your Blue Apron account, click the “Details” button on your last order and check the “Changeable By” date. You can cancel or skip your order before the “Changeable By” date, but you will be required to pay for the order if it has already passed. If the order is marked as shipped or processed that means that the order can no longer be cancelled and you are required to pay for the delivery.
If you only wish to skip a delivery, this can be done directly from your Blue Apron account. Once again, you should go to the “Upcoming” page, scroll to the week you wish to cancel and check the “Changeable By” date in order to see whether it is still possible to cancel your weekly order. If the order has not been processed yet, click the “Manage” button on the order, wait until the pop-up window appears and then click the “Skip This Delivery” button. Another window will appear, asking you to confirm your decision. Click the “Yes, Skip This Week” button.
Once you have successfully finished the process of canceling your order, a red cross will appear next to the date of the order you skipped. It is important to note that you can always change your mind and click the Unskip button on the skipped weekly delivery in order to make it active again. Once you click the button, a green circle with a check mark will appear in the place of the red cross. The only thing to keep in mind is that you are required to do so before the Changeable By date.
