Turn Off Your Amazon Prime Membership Auto-renewal

When you sign up for Amazon Prime, your membership is set to automatically renew at the end of your chosen membership period. You can turn off this automatic renewal at any time by adjusting your membership settings and following the steps highlighted below.

You can change your Amazon Prime membership payment cycle at any time:

  1. Go to Manage Prime Membership.
    • If you have an annual Amazon Prime membership, you can switch to a monthly Amazon Prime membership.
    • If you have a monthly Amazon Prime membership, you can switch to an annual Amazon Prime membership.
  2. Select Change Payment Option and choose the Amazon Prime membership that you'd like.
  3. If you're due any refund from your current membership, you'll be notified of this amount before you confirm the changes to your membership. If you are not due a refund, your membership payment cycle will only switch after your current membership period has ended. After which, you will be renewed into the new Prime membership plan you chose.

If you decide against continuing your membership, it's easy to turn off your automatic renewal by cancelling your membership:

  1. Go to Manage Prime Membership.
  2. Review the renewal date listed on the left-hand side of the page.
    • If you currently have an Amazon Prime free trial, click End Trial and Benefits.
    • If you currently have a paid Amazon Prime membership, click End Membership and Benefits.
  3. You can then either select to End Membership. This will stop your Prime membership automatically renewing at the end of your current contract.
    • If you currently have an Amazon Prime free trial, click Do Not Continue.

    Note: Your membership will expire at the end of the current period. You can check when your membership ends on the left side of the page.

If you'd like to turn your automatic renewal back on at any stage, you may do so on the same page by clicking Continue Membership.

You can also choose to set a renewal reminder by selecting Remind me before renewing in "Next Payment", which is accessible in Your Account, under "Manage Prime membership". (This reminder option won't be available if your renewal date is within the next three days.) For more information, go to Cancel Your Amazon Prime.
