Here’s How to Cancel Your Kindle Unlimited Subscription


Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited service first launched back in 2014. It provides unlimited access to a library of over 1 million ebooks, plus some comics, audiobooks, and magazines.

Kindle Unlimited normally costs $9.99 per month, and it comes with a free 30-day trial, but your account will automatically be charged after the trial period if you don’t cancel before the 30 days is up.

Luckily Kindle Unlimited can be canceled at anytime.

You don’t even have to contact support; you can cancel Kindle Unlimited in a few seconds from your Amazon account.

If you don’t want to get charged for the next month or after using the free trial, make sure to cancel before the month is up.

If you want to cancel your Kindle Unlimited subscription, here’s how in three easy steps.

How to Cancel Kindle Unlimited

1. Go to the Manage your Kindle Unlimited Membership page at (sign-in required) or other Amazon website where you subscribed, such as (just select Kindle Unlimited from Your Account section under memberships and subscriptions).

2. Under Manage Membership select Cancel Kindle Unlimited Membership.

3. Next, there’s a confirmation page where you have to select End Membership on the selected date.

More Details

Keep in mind, if you cancel your Kindle Unlimited subscription, access to the service will remain active until the next billing date; they won’t refund for a partial month.

After the end date, you will lose access to the titles you borrowed with Kindle Unlimited, but Amazon does save all your bookmarks, notes, and highlights for each book in case you decide to re-subscribe or purchase the books at a later date.

It’s also important to note that if you cancel a Kindle Unlimited membership that was pre-paid as a gift or monthly bundle deal, you won’t get a partial refund for unused months, so you’re better off using it until the end of the subscription if that’s the case.

If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can still access a small percentage of the Kindle Unlimited library with Prime Reading.

  7. I want to cancel my Kindle Unlimited Subscription and do not want a membership. WHEN i follow the directions it says that I do not have a membership.But every month Kindle Unltd takes 9,99 Euros from my account. I do not use any serfices from Kindle Unltd.Stop taking my money, cancel my Kindle Ultd subscription and membership

    • Here’s an idea: contact Amazon about it, not some random blog. I can’t believe all the people that leave comments here asking to cancel KU for them. I just keep deleting them; some are stupid enough to leave personal information. News flash: I can’t cancel KU for anyone but myself. Contact Amazon support if you’re having problems with an Amazon service. It’s not rocket science, people!

  8. Why do you all make canceling something a huge hassle….want to cancel membership because ypu offer a crappy selection of books. How about an old fashioned phone number to call.

  9. I’m getting charged for this never signed up for this

    • It happened to me too! I did not even sign up for this service, but my credit card was charged without any notification! How can we get our money back?

      • Be mindful that activating a free trial for KU, including the ones that come with Kindles now, means you’re accepting the terms to pay each month after the trial is over unless you cancel.

  10. I just followed the directions at the top of this page and our membership was cancelled–couldn’t have been any easier.
