To cancel your Prime subscription, go to Account & List’s in the top right corner of the Amazon homepage.

You’ll see a drop-down menu with several alternatives; select Your Prime Membership from the list.

This article should not be confused with Memberships & Subscriptions, as they are two independent sections.

On the left side of the website, you’ll see your payment and renewal information once you’ve arrived at your Prime page.

Click on the link that says End Membership and Benefits toward the bottom of the menu. (See the image above.)

Go to the Your Account page in the Amazon app, then tap Manage Prime Membership. Then, at the bottom of the page, hit End Membership and Benefits.

Second, Click to End Prime Benefits

When you get to the cancellation page, you’ll be informed about all of the great Prime perks you’ll be losing out on.

The End My Benefits button can be found at the bottom of the page.

Simply click on it, and voila! Your Amazon Prime membership has been terminated.

A simpler approach to cancel your Amazon Prime subscription is to go to this Amazon Help Page.

This page may change over time, but for the time being, IT WORKS.

Can You Cancel a Prime Membership 30-Day Trial?

You can cancel your free 30-day Prime trial at any time.

It’s a good idea to do it on day 29 so you can fully utilize all of the benefits before your credit card is charged.
To cancel, follow the same steps outlined above.

Will You Get Money Back When You Cancel Prime?

I really called Amazon to inquire about their policy on offering refunds if you cancel your annual Prime subscription before it expires.

What I was told was quite fascinating.

After analyzing how often you used your Prime perks, Amazon will pick the monetary amount to repay you.

For example, I was advised that you will only receive a half refund if you purchased Prime 2-day shipping on FOUR or more. They wouldn’t tell me how much money they were going to repay.

However, if you just used Prime to place one online order, you may be eligible for a full refund.

The best way to secure a Prime refund is to call Amazon immediately at 1-(888) 280-4331 and explain your situation.

Ask the Reader: Do you think Amazon Prime is worth the money, or do you think you’ll cancel because it’s too expensive? Please let me know in the comments.
