They will cut the price in half for 12 mos. if you say that you want to cancel because you don't like the price. (I want to keep it as a card churner and mortgage renewal coming up)

Still no cheque for me yet (super frustrating).

I called Equifax to cancel. I told them it was too expensive. They offered to reduce my monthly payment by 50% if I didn't cancel.

We just bought a house, and the mortgage hasn't shown up on my credit report yet. I'm also still churning MBNA 0% BT MC's. Given the price drop and the (possible) refund coming from the Home Depot Data Breach settlement, I opted to keep the service at the reduced price for at least a couple months to see what my credit score looks like after all my recent life events settle and get reported.

If I get a cheque from the settlement, great, if not, then at least I'm not paying full price for the service and I'll be cancelling this service in a few months.

No cheque for me either. I will give them probably 2 or 3 more weeks before I file a complaint against their law firm

I did the same thing as the past few posters, called in for a reduction in price - so I guess I've extended my waiting period for another 2 more months. If a cheque doesn't show up, I guess I'd have to call it quits.

Nothing for me either, mailed mine at the end of May - even assuming they didn't process any claims until the June 23rd closing date, will soon be 2 months which seems excessive. Will be cancelling my Equifax account on Friday as I'm losing confidence that I'll ever get the costs covered.

I'd frankly be surprised if people see anything in less than 6 months.
