    I don't know if its because its late or that I'm hungover, or if this is actually a mind f***, but I interpret this one way, while the other person interprets it the opposite.

    "Your trial ends tomorrow."

    To me, this implies that you have all of the following day to use the service and at the end of tomorrow, it will be done. To them, they are saying this means that the day they sent this to me, is the day the trial is up.

    Whats your interpretation on this?

    Thanks!

    Doesn't matter
    It simply means that the new billing cycle will start at the end of the day so the trail ends at the end of the day .

    Well, "tomorrow" is quite a vague word to use. They should specify 'when' tomorrow. An exact time, in other words.

    It's like saying "let's meet tomorrow". If you don't specify a time, it becomes quite a useless statement.

    And I agree. To me, if it was the day they sent the email, wouldn't they say "your trial ends today"? Saying your trial ends tomorrow, to me means it ends at the end of tomorrow.

    Your trial ends the first minute of the next day (tomorrow) or the last minute of this day. Whichever you prefer...

    I would take it that I have at least 24 hours to trial the product.
    If it was less than 24 hours I would contact their support and suggest that unless they increase the time limit then I would have no further interest in their product.

    I would expect the trial to last for the full allotted time. If for example I was told I had a 7 day free trial and I activated the trial at 1.07pm on Sunday then I would expect it expire at 1.07pm the following Sunday. I dont think an extra hour or two is going to sway my opinion on a product anyway.
