How to Cancel Amazon Prime, Step by Step

Once you know where to find the right link, canceling Amazon Prime isn't so bad. But locating the link can be tricky, as Amazon seems to have buried it. Here, we break down the Prime cancellation process step by step.

  1. Sign in to your Amazon Prime account.

  2. Hover over the area where it says "Hello, [your name]." When the dropdown menu appears, click on "Your Account."

  3. Once there, you should see several boxes at the top of the page. The upper rightmost one should say "Prime." Click that box.

  4. On the next page, scroll all the way down until you see "Membership Management" on the left side.

  5. Click "End Membership and Benefits."

  6. You'll be taken to a page where Amazon tries to convince you to stay. Scroll to the bottom.

  7. Choose one of three options:

    • Send a reminder (i.e., you keep your benefits but receive a reminder three days before your membership auto-renews)

    • End benefits (cancel your membership)

    • Keep benefits (nothing changes)
