Time end Amazon Prime membership (and how-to)

Today, Amazon announced that they will raise the annual subscription price for Prime membership from $99 to $119, a 20% increase.

After some self-reflection, I have decided that it is no longer worth it to pay the fee. $99 was borderline extravagant for me. Aside from the 2-day shipping, I do not make use of all the other services that come with Prime membership. On top of that, even without 2 days shipping, I remember that many items still have free 3-5 days shipping (correct me if I’m wrong).

Steps to end your annual Amazon prime membership :

  1. Go to Amazon.com
  2. Click on “Your Account” or “Accounts & Lists” near top right
  3. Click on the “Prime – View benefits and payment settings” box toward top right
  4. Click on “End Membership and Benefits” link on the left
  5. Click on “End My Benefits” button
  6. Click on “Continue to Cancel” button
  7. Click on “End on [date]” button

And you are done. Your Prime membership will now expire at the stated date.

To be honest, I am not too fond of the wordings because they purposely word the buttons as if the membership will end right the way. I can only guess their intent where most people will have a psychological block to end membership immediately rather than allowing the membership to expire.
