How to cancel Kindle Unlimited

To cancel your Kindle Unlimited subscription, simply open your browser on any device, visit the Amazon mobile app, and choose “Kindle Unlimited” from the list of services. When you get to the details page, just click on Cancel Subscription.

Note that the subscription will be valid until the end of the billing period, and according to Amazon’s rules, you won’t get an automatic refund. In addition, it’s worth remembering that you can cancel your subscription only through your browser. This function is not supported in the mobile app.

How to unsubscribe Kindle Unlimited

To unsubscribe from Kindle Unlimited, you will need to use the browser on your computer or smartphone. To do this, you will need to:

  • Navigate to Amazon’s official website or the specific Amazon domain relevant to your region (e.g.,, and log into your Amazon account.
  • In the upper right corner of the Amazon homepage, hover over or click on “Account & Lists”.
  • In the dropdown menu, click on “Kindle Unlimited.”
  • You’ll see details regarding your Kindle Unlimited subscription on the next page. This includes when the next billing date is and what your payment method is. Look for an option that says “Cancel Kindle Unlimited Membership,” and click on it.
  • Amazon may ask you to confirm your decision to cancel and might even offer you an incentive to stay subscribed. If you’re certain about your choice to cancel, proceed through any prompts to finalize the cancellation.

Once you’ve completed the steps, you should see a confirmation message indicating that your Kindle Unlimited subscription will not renew and that it will end on the date of the current billing cycle’s completion.

It’s always a good idea to double-check your email for a cancellation confirmation from Amazon. This ensures that the process was successful and provides a record of your cancellation.

How to cancel your Kindle Unlimited subscription on mobile devices

You can cancel your subscription using the method described above in your smartphone or tablet’s browser. Just open your preferred browser, go to the Amazon page, and follow the steps above.

Currently, canceling your Kindle Unlimited subscription directly through the Amazon mobile app is not an option. There was a time when the app provided this capability, offering users a streamlined way to end their Kindle Unlimited subscription. However, Amazon later decided to remove this feature, pushing users to rely on a browser-based method for cancelation.

Why you can’t cancel Kindle Unlimited

Some users face the problem that they can’t find the unsubscribe button. This is because Kindle Unlimited can no longer be canceled in mobile apps. Many users are confused by this. The solution is quite simple: cancel your subscription using your browser (using your smartphone or computer).

Can I use Kindle Unlimited until the end of the billing period?

Yes, you can. When you cancel your Kindle Unlimited subscription, you are essentially stopping its auto-renewal for the next billing cycle. This means you can continue using the service until the end of the billing period.

Think of it as a prepayment for a month of service. If you choose not to renew your service for the next month, it doesn’t mean you’ll lose access right away. You’ve already paid for that time so you can use it.

Will you lose access to all books after canceling Kindle Unlimited?

When your Kindle Unlimited subscription ends, you will lose access to the Kindle Unlimited books you have borrowed. It’s important to understand that with Kindle Unlimited, you are not buying books. You are borrowing them, just like a library. Therefore, when you cancel your subscription, all Kindle Unlimited books downloaded to your device become unavailable.

However, your Amazon account will save any notes, highlights, or bookmarks you created in those books. If you decide to subscribe to Kindle Unlimited again or buy a book in the future, those notes will be available to you.

Can you get a refund for Kindle Unlimited?

Amazon’s official policy states that membership programs, including Kindle Unlimited, are non-refundable. However, in practice, Amazon often goes out of its way to help customers, especially if the chargeback is recent and you haven’t used the service during the new billing period. If you think there’s been a billing error or you have other valid reasons, it’s worth contacting customer support.

Is Kindle Unlimited included in Amazon Prime?

No, Kindle Unlimited and Amazon Prime are two different services offered by Amazon and each requires a separate subscription. While Amazon Prime does provide access to a selection of ebooks, magazines, and more through the Prime Reading program, that library is much smaller than the one you’ll find in Kindle Unlimited.
