  • It can be confusing to figure out how to cancel Amazon Prime.
  • I cancelled my Prime subscription after the monthly price increased.
  • Here’s a step-by-step guide to how you can do the same, for whatever reason.

When news broke that Amazon was raising prices for monthly subscribers, I decided to cancel my subscription.

But, the process wasn’t as easy as I thought. After a few minutes of clicking around on Amazon’s website feeling like a fool, I figured things out. But, it wasn’t as easy as I would have liked.

So, in an effort to save other people the annoying clicking, here is a step by step process of how to cancel your own Amazon Prime subscription.

Step 1: Go to the “Prime Central” or “Manage Prime Membership” page

Do not click on “Memberships & Subscriptions.” Do not click on “Your Account.” Just click on “Your Prime Membership” — or just click here.

Step 2: Click on “End Membership and Benefits”

Look at that $12.99 figure for March! And then scroll on down and click “End Membership and Benefits.”

Step 3: Keep saying you want to cancel through the three-step process

You’ll have the option to not cancel, but instead be reminded before renewing, or to switch to the annual payment option. Only paying once a year is a much better deal — but don’t click that if you actually want to quit.

Step 4: Click “End Now” if you want some money back

If you have an Amazon TV show you want to finish, wait until the end of the month, but if you really want to quit, just click “End Now.” I was refunded $11.97!
