By the end, you’ll know exactly how to permanently cancel and remove your GNC account for good through the website or mobile app. Let’s get started!
Overview of Deleting GNC Accounts
GNC allows customers to sign up for a free online account profile. This enables personalized features like:
- Saving payment methods for faster checkout
- Tracking order history and loyalty program status
- Tailored supplement recommendations
- Email subscriptions and alerts
If you no longer want to maintain a registered account with GNC, deleting it permanently removes the profile and discontinues these services tied to the account.
However, deleting a GNC account doesn’t necessarily prohibit you from making purchases as a guest. Let’s look at how to delete a GNC account on the website or mobile app.

Impacts of GNC Account Deletion
Deleting your GNC account has the following impacts:
- You lose access to order history and tracking
- Stored payment methods are removed
- You are unenrolled from the GNC loyalty program
- Account recommendations and customization reset
- Email subscriptions and alerts cease
- You cannot use the mobile app without an account
However, you can still make purchases as a guest on the GNC website. Next we’ll look at exactly what happens post-deletion.
What Happens When You Delete GNC Account
Here is what to expect after successfully deleting your GNC account:
- Your account profile is permanently removed from GNC’s systems.
- You are automatically logged out of the website and mobile app.
- You can no longer sign into the account on any device.
- Order history tied to the account is erased.
- The email or phone number used for the account can be reused.
- Guest checkout remains available on the GNC website.
So in summary, the account is completely deleted beyond recovery, but you can still shop without an account.
Alternatives to Closing a GNC Account
Instead of deleting your GNC account entirely, you may want to consider:
- Deactivating the account temporarily if taking a break from shopping
- Creating a new account with a different email if wanting a fresh start
- Calling GNC support to remove email subscriptions or marketing
- Utilizing guest checkout without an account for simpler purchasing
So full account deletion is permanent, but there are reversible options if you still want to shop GNC.
Reactivating a Deleted GNC Account
Unfortunately, once you fully delete your GNC account, there is no way to restore or reactivate it.
You cannot recover a deleted GNC account, even by contacting GNC support. The profile is permanently erased from their systems.
Instead, you would need to create an entirely new account from scratch using a different email address and password.

But if running into problems, try the following troubleshooting tips:
- Refresh page or app and try again if deletion doesn’t go through
- Use Forgot Password if prompted for incorrect password
- Contact GNC support if account won’t fully delete
- Sign up again with a different email if wanting to recreate an account
Getting assistance from GNC’s customer service team can help resolve any stubborn account deletion failures.
