How can I change my plan?

To change your plan, select the plan option you wish to purchase in Football Outsiders Store and go through the checkout process. You will be charged at the time of purchase, and your updated plan will begin immediately following your current plan period.

How do I update my payment information?

Sign in to the Football Outsiders website and visit your Account to update your Football Outsiders payment information.

Note: If you are being billed through a billing partner and not directly through Football Outsiders, please visit the third party's website to update your payment information.

How do I change my billing date?

To change your billing date, you’ll need to cancel your account and restart it on the date you’d like to be billed on.

If you cancel in the middle of your billing cycle, the cancellation will not fully complete until the end of that billing cycle, and you will be unable to restart your account until after that time.

What happens if I cancel my subscription early?

If you cancel early, you can continue to use your subscription until your account automatically closes at the end of your current billing period. You will not be charged again unless you select a new subscription plan.

What happens if I purchase my subscription early?

Great game plan. We don’t blame you for not wanting to have a day without your membership. If you purchase ahead of your current billing period, you will be charged at the time of purchase, but your new plan will begin immediately following your currently billing period. You will not be charged again unless you select a new subscription plan.

If I cancel my subscription, will I be charged?

You will not see any more membership charges unless you purchase a new subscription plan. If you cancel with time left in your billing period, we'll let you access your subscription until the account cancels automatically.


Can I rejoin if I cancel my subscription?

Definitely! We'd love to have you back, so whenever you're ready, just pick a new subscription plan from the Football Outsiders Store page.

How do I cancel my Football Outsiders subscription?

We hate to see you go! To end your subscription, simply ensure your autopayment preference is set to OFF. You can manage this setting in your Account Settings by selecting Manage Subscription to edit your Autopay Preferences.


Resolving Payment Issues

Why do I see a message that there’s a problem with my payment method?

This message indicates that Football Outsiders was unable to receive a payment because the financial institution rejected the charge. To resolve the issue, sign in to your Football Outsiders account and update or change your payment method. In most cases, this will resolve the issue.

If you're still having trouble updating your account with new payment information, please try a different payment method, or contact your financial institution to ensure your payment information is up to date and supports e-commerce transactions.

Why isn’t my payment method accepted?

Football Outsiders accepts many payment methods. If you’ve confirmed that your payment method is listed under “How can I pay for Football Outsiders?” above, and your payment method is still not being accepted, contact us for further assistance.


Other Common Subscription Questions

Why does the Football Outsiders Almanac Subscription cost the same amount as the Print Edition on Amazon?

With the Football Outsiders Almanac subscription you get more than just one book. You get the complete archive of Football Outsiders Almanacs. That’s over a decade of history. We have also thrown in a few extra Fan Favorite Freebees such as A Good Walkthrough Spoiled The Carroll Guide to Sports Injuries and ProFootball Prospectus 2004: The Lost Year.

What if I only want the KUBIAK Preseason Fantasy Projections for my fantasy drafts in August?

We no longer offer individual product purchases, such as KUBIAK. But we have made FO+ Monthly especially for you! Just purchase FO+ Monthly for a month or two and cancel your subscription. Better yet, you might want to consider upgrading to FO+ Yearly to get Weekly Fantasy Projections into the season, but everything else FO+ has to offer.

What's FREE on Football Outsiders?

All of the editorial articles are free on Football Outsiders. Now and always. Data on our Statistics pages continue to be FREE as well. Football Outsiders is also now ad FREE!

Can I get a Trial of FO+?

By navigating to FO+ in the menu, all visitors can get a flavor for each of the products included in FO+ with our demo pages. We are working towards a more seamless integration and hope to have that available as next season nears.

Can I still get the Almanac PDF?

Yes! You can purchase the Almanac Subscription, which allows you to download the PDF just like you had in the past. As a bonus, you also get the complete archive of historical Football Outsiders Almanacs.
