How to Cancel Amazon Prime: Ending Your Membership Hassle-Free- Ginnoslab

If you are thinking about saying bye to Amazon Prime, it is okay. You can do it easily. You can cancel it anytime without losing your Amazon account. Amazon Prime is like a club, and if you leave, you can still shop on Amazon, but you will not get special discounts or super fast shipping.

Just remember, you will not get your money back if you cancel before your next payment date, but you will still have Prime benefits until then.

You do not have to pay if you are trying Amazon Prime for 30 days. If you change your mind during the trial, you can stop it before it is over, and they will not take money from your card.

How to cancel Amazon Prime

It doesn’t matter if you have it monthly, yearly, or as a free trial. Stopping it means you will not have things like Prime Video and Amazon Music. First, go to the top right on Amazon, where it says Accounts & Lists. Then do this:

  • Click on the Prime thing, which is the third one in the first row.
  • Amazon will try to talk you out of it, but do not listen. Look for “Manage membership” at the top of the screen and click on it.
  • Go down the menu and click “End membership.”
  • Once more, Amazon will try to make you stay by telling you what you will miss, but you are strong, so scroll down and choose “Continue to cancel.”

Note: Just so you know, if you start having second thoughts about leaving Amazon Prime, you can also change your plan or delay the decision.

  • The next screen will show you a summary of your membership, like how much you pay, how often, and when the next payment is. You have two choices here: “Cancel on renewal” and “Pause on renewal.” The first one is already chosen, so if that is what you want, click the yellow button that says “End on [your next billing date].”
  • If you cannot decide, you can choose to “Pause on renewal” and confirm it. Pausing is like taking a break from Prime. You will not pay until you decide to return, and you can do that whenever you like. However, there are some differences:
  • If you cancel, you will lose your Prime Video watchlist and any people you added to your account. Also, if you put pictures on Amazon Photos or make playlists on Amazon Music, you will lose them, too. If you pause your membership, your settings and stuff will be there when you return.

Are you new here? Give the monthly plan a try

A 30-day free trial might not be enough to figure out how much you will really use Prime. It is all shiny and exciting with its special deals and fast shipping, so you will probably use it a lot.

If you have never had Prime before, start with a monthly subscription to see if it’s worth it. It is less handy than paying for a whole year at once, but you can use this time to see if Prime is just a nice thing to have or something you cannot live without.

If you do not want to keep your membership going, it is easy to turn off automatic renewal. Go to “Manage Prime Membership” and check the renewal date on the left side. If you have a free trial, click “Do Not Continue.”

Can I cancel my Amazon Prime membership after a free trial?
