Can I Get Refund On Wealthy Affiliate?

The quick, short and confirmed answer is a firm no.

In January 2017, I tried to stop my Wealthy Affiliate membership but I was told in email the two reasons why they don't refund pre-paid Wealthy Affiliate premium membership

  • Reason #1: It's mentioned in the agreement

  • Reason #2: They had already paid the affiliate commission to the affiliate who referred me in

You can refer to my earlier posts on: Wealthy Affiliate Does Not Refund Prepaid Membership Amounts

My original reason for not continuing with WA was primarily because

  • I have much more results with Solo Build It (SBI) which I had been using since 2009

  • I had too many websites across Wealthy Affiliate, Solo Build It and BlueHost

...but when I was told by Wealthy Affiliate of the 2 reasons why they don't refund, I was unhappy with the philosophy. I mean, I can definitely understand the commercial decision behind no-refunds (yet I disagree with it, because it doesn't make sense to not refund because it's a pre-paid membership - unused portions SHOULD be refundable).

The larger problem is that I philosophically disagree with Wealthy Affiliate's non-refund just because they had paid the affiliate commission to the referring affiliate.

Don't get me wrong, the person who referred me in IS super, and I have no faults - he was very professional and encouraging.

And neither do I have beef with Wealthy Affiliate as a whole - they're generally an OK company, have up-to-date internet marketing and WordPress training, have FANTASTIC support and marketing, and this is my only problem with them.

That being said, if you want to explore them, and if you don't want the lock in, then do not pre-pay your membership in advance (however, pre-paying allows you massive discounting).

If you're a student, stay at home mum (SAHM), working full time or part time, or retired: you must build an online business on the side. Please don't quit your job yet, build it on the side until it's profitable enough to replace your salary, then you have more options.

It's not a luxury but truly a necessity for your future.

I've built multiple businesses (and lost multiple too) and I can tell you frankly that building a business on the internet is the cheapest/most cost-effective way to business. There are thousands of people who do so sharing on topics that they're passionate about (like how shares on passive income and online business, which is my passion…for years now).
