Frequently Asked Questions

What happened to the App?

We had to take down the app and are working on bringing it back up ASAP. In the meantime we do have another solution by adding our website to your “Home Screen.” You can find the instructions here.

What are the cancellation and refund policies?

Your subscription will automatically renew, unless you cancel. The Real Deal does not issue refunds after you have been charged. You may cancel your monthly subscription at any time before the next billing cycle to avoid future charges. Annual subscribers who cancel will not be issued a refund and their subscription will not renew.

Our login system does not require you to set a password for new accounts. When you wish to login to your account you can visit the login page and enter your email. We will then send you an email verification which will act as your password and log you in to your account.
