How to cancel Amazon Prime

With Amazon’s Prime Day sale behind us for another summer, there’s only one thing left to do and that’s cancel your Prime subscription before the next billing cycle arrives. 

Of course, that’s only if you want to. There are plenty of tempting benefits to keeping your Amazon Prime membership around, from unlimited same-day and one-day delivery on regular items to 2-hour delivery on groceries and access to exclusive offers and Lightning Deals. 

A Prime membership also grants you access to over 100 million ad-free tracks from Amazon Music Prime, a huge library of TV, movies and live sports via Prime Video and a year’s worth of Deliveroo Plus at no additional cost. 

If none of the above sparks your interest, you’ll probably want to cancel your Prime membership before you see next month’s charge on your account – if you’re currently taking advantage of Amazon’s 30-day trial. 

Keep reading to learn how to cancel an Amazon Prime subscription in less than two minutes.
