Chegg operates the call center for this 855-477-0177 phone number 24 hours, 7 days. The short answer is that you should call on a Friday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 230 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this Chegg phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like Chegg staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call Chegg is Sunday. The most busy day to call is Tuesday, which averages 300% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 230 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

The shortest wait on hold

We measured the shortest hold times to be on Thursday. The longest wait in the queue on average occurs on Monday.

The best time to call Chegg

In summation, the best day to call Chegg is Friday.

Calling this Chegg Customer Number

When you call the customer service phone number for Chegg, you're greeted by an automated message system. Interestingly, the system says you're able to receive assistance via SMS (texting or messaging service) by pressing 1, as well as online. Callers are specifically directed to Chegg's FAQ section on their website for frequently asked questions and answers. After this opening message, you're told to stay on the line and wait for the next available representative.

Initially, I wasn't sure how receiving assistance via SMS would actually work, so I decided to press 1 and check it out. I was informed that I would receive a text message from Chegg to the phone number I was calling from, which is interesting! (I hung up and called back, as I don't actually want SMS customer service; I was just curious how it would work.)

I imagine this would be a great option for many individuals, especially those who are neurodivergent and/or have anxiety disorders. However, it wouldn't work with a landline number, so that's something to potentially keep in mind.

Secondly, the fact that the automated message system is short and nearly immediately begins routing callers to a real human being? That's great. Most people don't enjoy navigating clumsy and convoluted automated message systems set up by companies that don't seem like they actually want to interact with customers. I was connected to a representative quickly; my wait time was maybe two minutes, and they were very friendly and helpful.

Overall, my experience calling the customer service phone number for Chegg was positive. An additional language option would be a great addition, such as Spanish or French, to increase caller accessibility, but aside from that critique, the automated messaging system was decent (something I never say), and the rep I spoke to was great!

More Chegg Customer Service Contacts

There are of course other ways to contact Chegg customer service besides the phone. Below we list the best ones, by medium.

Chegg Customer Service Live Chat

chegg.com - Customer Service
Click "Click here to request a refund" where the site mentions, then "already retuned your book but got charged a late fee" in bold blue. Click the link, click chat on the next screen then choose your topic to chat about.
If phone-based customer service is not available, or the wait times are long, many people prefer chat as a next-best option. Some even prefer it to calling on the phone. Luckily, Chegg provides this option.

Chegg Customer Service on X (formerly Twitter)

@CheggHelp - Customer Service
Company Twitter feed
Chegg, like many companies, provides customer service on the X platform (formerly Twitter). While it rarely entails live dialogue with a customer service rep, this channel can yield rapid response times and can be a useful option if you have an X/Twitter account.

Chegg Customer Help Desk / Web Support

chegg.com - Customer Service
Online customer service support
As a last, sometimes only, resort- Chegg customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
