In other news, my match.com subscription ran out. The lovely people there sent me a 25 percent off offer. (I think.) Here are the terms:

to the following:
OFFER DETAILS. This offer (the "25% Offer") consists of 25% off the initial subscription price of any of subscription packages (1-month, 3-month or 6-month) to the Match.com service.
HOW TO REDEEM. To redeem your 25% Offer to Match.com you must meet all of Match.com's eligibility requirements, including that you are 18 years old at the time of redemption.

BILLING UPON EXPIRATION. Upon the completion of your initial subscription period you will be automatically billed for a full paying, non-discounted subscription of equivalent package term (for example, if you choose the 3-month discounted offer, you will be renewed for a 3-month package at the regular subscription price). You will be automatically renewed at the end of each subscription term thereafter until you submit your resignation.

My mortgage had fewer caveats. I think if I take them up on this offer, it means I have agreed to automatic renewals for the REST OF MY LIFE.
But I'm not a lawyer, so I can't say for sure.
