BahnCard subscription not properly terminated resulting in two BahnCard 25

Hi dear Bahn team,

My wife has her regular BahnCard 25 ending on 3.01.17. On the 13th of November (i.e. a couple of weeks before 6-weeks notice period) we went to the DB Reisezentrum at B-Hbf to terminate her card and order her a new BahnCard 25 Partnerkarte (to pay less for the next year - 41 Euro). We successfully ordered Partnerkarte, and when I asked for termination of the existing Abo, the lady from DB told us it will be cancelled automatically. The Partnerkarte was delivered shortly after that (its ending period is linked to my card of course - till 09.11.17), but this week also another card arrived (valid till 03.01.18) together with the Invoice for 62 Euros. That definitely means that the previous card subscription was not terminated properly (I should have demand some kind of confirmation paper, probably) :(

Tell me please, if this situation (two cards for the same person and of the same value - 25%) is legit? And does it means the new invoice are mandatory to pay? If so, can you please confirm that it's possible to cancel BahnCard 25 using Sonderkündigungs­recht until 31.01.2017? (because recently the rules for Europa Sparpreis discount were changed and became worse, as it's specified here: https://www.test.de/Bahncard-Lohnt-sich-oft-schneller-als... ).

Please feel free to answer in German. Thanks!
