You're absolutely right! I started doing that type of work in the 2000s. I got stuck romanticizing the past.

I've forgotten to cancel these sorts of things twice over the years, and they were of course unable to charge the credit card. I've only run into one company that wouldn't take temporary cards. I forget what it was, but I was able to pay through PayPal instead with a temporary card.
This. Is. Genius. I can't believe I hadn't thought of this before. Best idea I've heard in a long, long time and I thank you for sharing it.
