How Do You Cancel Your Amazon Prime Membership?

After signing up for a Prime membership, Amazon does not make it very simple to cancel your subscription. However, canceling an Amazon Prime membership is possible.

When you are on the Amazon homepage, click on ‘Accounts & Lists,’ which is on the top right of the page. A drop-down menu will appear, and you need to find the ‘Your Prime Membership’ link.

Once you navigate your Prime page, your payment and renewal detail is on the left side of the page. Towards the bottom of the menu, you will need to click on the link that says ‘End Membership and Benefits.’

To officially cancel your Prime membership, scroll to the bottom and click on the ‘End My Benefits’ button. After completing these steps, your Prime membership is officially canceled.

Does Amazon Refund Your Money After Canceling Your Membership?

Yes, Amazon does refund your money even after you cancel your Amazon Prime membership. However, the dollar amount Amazon refunds you depends on how often you use your Prime membership.

For example, if you only used your Prime membership to place one online order, Amazon will likely issue you a full refund. If you used your Prime membership on four or more orders, Amazon would issue you a partial refund.

Essentially, the amount of money Amazon refunds you varies on a case-to-case basis. Additionally, Amazon refunds your money electronically onto the original form of payment.

The best way to know exactly how much your refund will be is to call Amazon directly at 1-(888) 280-4331, and an employee will answer all your questions.

How Much Does Amazon Prime Cost?

How Much Does Amazon Prime Cost?

Amazon offers two different ways to pay for a Prime membership plan. One option is to pay an annual fee of $119. Another option is to pay a monthly fee of $12.99.

While paying the monthly fee may initially seem like a good way to save some money, it actually costs more than the annual fee. For example, if you pay $12.99 per month, the yearly cost would be around $155.

Additionally, Amazon offers discounts on Prime membership plans if you are a student, have an EBT card, or are a Medicaid cardholder.

Amazon Prime Student members are charged $6.49 per month. EBT and Medicaid cardholders also pay $5.99 per month for up to four years for an Amazon Prime subscription.

What Does An Amazon Prime Subscription Include?

Before you cancel your Amazon Prime membership, knowing what perks and benefits you will be leaving behind is helpful. For example, some of the perks that come with a Prime membership include:

  • Delivery benefits (free two-day shipping, free release-date delivery, $9.95 two-hour grocery delivery)
  • Streaming benefits (Prime Video, Amazon Music Prime, Prime Gaming, Amazon Photos)

Amazon’s refund policy for Prime subscription cancellations varies based on specific customer accounts. The best way to discover how much money you will be refunded is to call Amazon’s customer service line.
