How to Cancel Your Own Blue Apron Membership

You can skip orders up to five weeks in advance. If you want to sever ties with Blue Apron due to travel, you might choose this option. 

To skip your order, log into your account and click on the “Upcoming” page. From there, you can click on which order you would like to skip. Once you have selected the appropriate order, click on “Manage Delivery” and then “Skip This Delivery.” 

If the order has already been marked as processed or shipped, you cannot cancel it. You will have to pay for those particular meals (plus any taxes or other charges).

Do you still wish to cancel your Blue Apron meal service? Three different options can take care of this task.

The customer service department will email instructions back to you on how to complete the process.

After you log into your account, click “Manage.” On this page, click on “Cancel Meal or Wine Deliveries.”

How to Cancel Your Own Blue Apron Free Trial

Did you try Blue Apron’s free trial, but the meals did not go over well in your home? You need to tell Blue Apron that you would like to cancel your subscription before you get charged for the next week’s meals. 

The fine print in Blue Apron’s Terms of Use states, “Please note that you will not receive a notice from us that your free trial has ended or that the paid portion of your subscription has begun.” 

However, if you cancel your subscription before the end of your free trial, you may not receive all the meals promised to you in the promotion.

Once your final free meal was shipped, complete one of the following options to cancel your account. 

Option 1: Email

Someone from Blue Apron customer service will email you back with specific instructions on how to cancel your account after the free trial. Do not assume you will get taken care of by merely emailing the company once.

Option 2: Call Blue Apron’s customer service number

Call 888-278-4349. Explain that you wish to cancel your account after receiving your free trial.

Option 3: Cancel your account by visiting the Blue Apron website

After you log into your account, click “Manage.” On this page, click on “Cancel Meal or Wine Deliveries.” Blue Apron’s fine print says that even if you cancel your account, the company will still send you emails and other correspondence unless you opt out of them.

How to Cancel a Deceased Loved One’s Blue Apron Membership

If your loved one died unexpectedly, you might be surprised when a box of meals shows up on their doorstep. To ensure that more food doesn’t arrive, contact Blue Apron to cancel the membership of your deceased loved one. 

Even though deleting a Blue Apron account does not end up as a duty of the executor of the estate, you can do so by emailing and explaining the situation. Include your loved one’s email address, name, and address in the message.

While you may feel you must take care of this and other loose ends, the problem may take care of itself. After all, the funeral director always notifies the Social Security Administration after someone dies.

They inform the credit agencies about the death, and credit and debit cards usually get flagged at this time so that no additional charges can accrue.

In summary, Blue Apron may automatically cancel the subscription when the company can't charge the credit card on file.

What We Discovered by Reading Blue Apron’s Privacy Statement

You may have enjoyed the healthy ingredients and meals that Blue Apron sent each week, but in an attempt to simplify your life, you may have decided to reduce the number of online accounts in your name and delete your online presence

Simply canceling your membership with Blue Apron does not mean that the company won’t still send you emails. It also doesn’t mean that the company will delete all the information gathered about you while you were a customer.
