If you’re seeking a refund from HughesNet, here are the steps you can take:

1.  Cancellation and prorated refunds:

  • If you cancel your HughesNet service, you may be eligible for a prorated refund for the unused portion of your paid month. The standard cancellation procedure is to terminate the service at the end of the current service month, allowing you to continue using the service through the last day of that month.

  • Remember that HughesNet uses “forward billing,” so your monthly bill covers service from the start of the billing cycle until the end.
  • Contact HughesNet customer service directly if you have questions about your specific situation.

2. Rebate Program:

  • HughesNet offers rebates to new customers who meet certain conditions. These rebates often come in the form of prepaid cards.
  • To claim your rebate:
    • Visit the HughesNet Rebate Center website.
    • Find the appropriate rebate offer.
    • Fill out the form with the necessary details.
    • Upload your proof of purchase.
  • You can expect your rebate to arrive within six to eight weeks after submitting the form.

3. Check Your subscriber agreement:

  • Review your subscriber agreement carefully to understand the terms related to refunds and early termination fees. The agreement outlines the penalties for canceling your service before the end of your contract term.

Contact HughesNet customer service is the best way to address your situation and get accurate information on refunds or rebates. You can reach it by phone or online chat.
