For $139 a year, Amazon Prime members receive a lot of perks, but if you’re ready to end your subscription, here’s how. Many individuals find Amazon Prime to be a useful service. You can get a number of advantages for $139 a year, including free two-day shipping, Prime Video streaming of movies and TV shows, a sizable music selection through Amazon Music, limitless photo storage via Amazon Photos, no-cost PC games via Prime Gaming, and a variety of books and publications via Prime Reading are all included.
In some locations, you may also get free two-hour delivery on groceries. You can also get free Audible audiobooks and early access to exclusive promotions. Access to Amazon’s RxPass pharmacy is available to members for $5 a month, and according to one rumour, low-cost phone contracts may follow.
All in all, it seems like a great deal, but what happens if you change your mind and no longer want a Prime membership? Perhaps the cost is no longer feasible, or perhaps you only signed up for Prime Day and now wish to cancel the subscription. The FTC claims that you could have been duped into subscribing.
The good news is that you are qualified for a full refund of the current membership term if you are a paying member who has not utilised your advantages. This refund should be handled within three to five days.
Terminate your Amazon Prime subscription
Log in to the Amazon website first. There are two ways you may start the cancelling procedure. Go to Account & Lists > Account > Prime or click on Prime Membership in the menu. Either choice brings up the Prime membership page where you may enter your account information.
Click Update, cancel, and more under the Manage Membership area in the upper right, then choose End membership from the drop-down box at the bottom. Amazon then makes an attempt to persuade you to stay by displaying a page that lists all of the advantages of Prime and your current paying cycle. Click Remind Me Later to obtain a reminder before your subscription renews if you decide not to cancel right away. If not, press Continue to cancel to continue.
