How to cancel your Amazon Prime subscription and close your account
Amazon Prime may have over 150 million subscribers, but if it lost its magic for you one way or another — including after a free trial — you can cancel your subscription and close out your account. You might even get a prorated refund for the amount of time left on your Prime subscription.
Amazon may not make it immediately simple to do either, and keep in mind that once you close out your Amazon account, you’re going to lose access to quite a few services. Then again, if you rarely use the service, dropping the Prime subscription service means you won’t pay the current fee of $12.99 a month, or $119 per year.
Below we’ll show you how to cancel your Prime subscription, request a refund and close out your account. It isn’t necessary to close your account if you’re only interested in unsubscribing from Amazon Prime. We’ll also sum up the Amazon services you’ll no longer be able to use.

Next, click Update, cancel and more under the Membership heading, followed by End membership. Alternatively, you can visit this support page and click the End Membership button to jump straight to the right page.
You’ll have to confirm three different times you want to cancel your membership. Amazon will attempt to move you to one of several other options (also pictured below):
- A monthly instead of yearly subscription
- Receive an alert a few days before your subscription renews so you can decide then
- Pause your membership on your renewal date
- Cancel your membership on the renewal date
If you want to cancel your membership completely, you’ll need to move past these other options to get to that point………Read More>>
