How to Cancel Kindle Unlimited


Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited service enables subscribers to gain access to millions of eBook titles for a monthly fee, providing access to an extensive library. Subscribers may check out multiple books once before returning them later in their subscription cycle.

Cancelling Amazon services is accessible through their website and app; just be sure to do it before your billing cycle ends!

How to Cancel

Though Kindle Unlimited is one of the top ebook subscription services on the market, it may not meet everyone’s needs or your satisfaction. Cancelling it should be straightforward, but there are a few things to remember.

At first, it is essential to double-check that your cancellation has taken effect – particularly with subscriptions that renew automatically, such as Kindle Unlimited. Amazon provides email notifications regarding almost any change made to an account – such as cancellations.

To cancel Kindle Unlimited, visit your Kindle account page and navigate to the “Manage Membership” section. Here, you will find your account’s information about a current subscription plan(s), borrowed titles, and payment settings.

Once you click this link, you will see a “Cancel Membership” button and will be asked to confirm whether you wish to cancel. If this decision is made, any books borrowed will be returned, and your Kindle Unlimited account will close upon its current billing cycle’s end date.

Access this same page by going directly to your Kindle account homepage and selecting “Manage Content and Devices.” Once there, look under your payment options for “Cancel Your Membership.”

When canceling Kindle Unlimited, remember that any remaining subscription period won’t receive a refund. At the same time, this doesn’t usually pose much of a problem for most who sign up using free trials; this may pose more difficulty for those opting for longer subscription terms.

What to Expect

Cancelling Kindle Unlimited can be done quickly and straightforwardly if you find a better eBook subscription service, aren’t using it enough, or want to reduce expenses from your budget. Please keep in mind, however, that if your billing cycle or one of the more extended plans (6, 12, or 24 months) has begun, any refund for any remaining days or months won’t apply if canceled during this period.

At the end of your billing cycle, any books that you’ve borrowed will automatically be returned. Some users attempt to outwit Amazon by loading up an unlimited number of Kindle Unlimited books onto their device before canceling their membership and disconnecting it from the internet, thinking this way they might keep all their read books without incurring fees from Amazon for returning them later. However, after canceling your membership, Amazon will still remove these books from your library.

Once you cancel, you will also be informed that your membership won’t renew at the end of its current billing cycle, giving you time to reactivate before it ends.

To reactivate your Kindle Unlimited subscription, visit the sign-up page and complete a signup process. All previous notes, highlights, and bookmarks will remain intact once reactivated.
