Pre-paid Subscription Code

According to the Silhouette subscription Terms and Conditions, early cancellation may incur a termination fee based off your subscription term. To cancel, you may do the following:

  1. Open the Silhouette Studio® software and access the Silhouette Design Store section
  2. Once in the Silhouette Design Store, click on the blue home icon to visit the store's main page
  3. Go to the my account option
  4. Select the Cancel My Subscription option
How to Upgrade/Renew

You are welcome to upgrade (to a higher level) or renew your subscription (at the same level) at any time. When manually upgrading or renewing, the original, full price of the new subscription will be charged, unless a valid promotional code is used during checkout. Promotional discounts used on previous subscriptions will not carry over.

To re-subscribe, users may do the following:

  1. Log into the Silhouette Design Store
  2. Click on the My Subscription
    • At the top of the homepage
  3. Click on Upgrade/Renew by your current subscription
  4. Select the subscription level and start date options
    • Don't forget to enter any promotional codes in the Payment/Billing section

When Upgrading, if Start Now is chosen, this will cancel your current subscription and begin the new subscription immediately with the full length selected. Upgrading will not simply increase the remaining months of your current subscription. 

If you had previously paid up-front for your subscription, any unused amount will apply toward your upgraded subscription. Any remaining credit balance from a previous subscription will remain active on the account.

Auto Renewal

An auto-renewal option is provided at the time of subscription sign-up. This option can be waived if desired.

To reward our loyal Silhouette Design Store subscription customers, an auto-renew discount is applied each consecutive year that a subscriber automatically renews his/her subscription.  Customers who choose to auto-renew will see the price of their subscription plans drop by 10% every year (up to 50% off the regular full-price of the subscription). If the auto-renewal is scheduled to occur during a sale, the lowest pricing option will automatically be chosen for the customer.
 
Auto-renew is an opt-in preference and can be canceled at any time. Subscribers can switch to a higher or lower-level subscription without interrupting their discount accrual.

To enable/disable auto-renew:
  1. Open Silhouette Studio® and go to STORE
  2. Click My Subscription
    • At the top of the page
  3. Click Manage
  4. Check/Uncheck the Auto Renew box
    • Please note the price displayed is for your next subscription, after the auto-renew has taken place
  5. Click Update Subscription

Any changes to the auto-renewal status must be done 48 hours prior to the subscription end date in order to take effect.

Terms and Conditions

Silhouette Design Store Subscriptions are offered in 3, 6, or 12 month periods. You can choose to pay monthly or up-front for a 5% discounted rate.

Subscription credits are allotted monthly, regardless of payment type. Each set of credits is valid for a period of 60 days from the date of allottment

Subscription credits are only valid during the term of an active subscription. If you have unused subscription credits when your subscription ends, you may opt to renew or sign up for a new subscription of any level to regain access to those credits, if still within the 60 day allottment period.

When enrolled in the auto-renew option, your subscription will renew automatically. When this renewal occurs, every 12 months, the previous year's rate will be reduced by 10%. Promotional code pricing does not stack with auto-renewal discount. The auto-renew discount will continue until the original price is reduced by 50%. Auto-renew is an opt-in preference and can be canceled at any time. Subscribers can switch to a higher or lower-level subscription without interrupting their discount accrual.

Subscriptions may be canceled after a period of three months without incurring a cancellation fee. If a subscription is canceled before this time, a cancellation fee of 2 or 3 months at the monthly subscription rate will be charged to fulfill the minimum monthly period.
