Kindle Unlimited is the Amazon service that allows you to have thousands of free eBooks for a monthly price, a kind of Spotify of books that we can have to read not only on a Kindle but also through the app on any device: either on your tablet, your mobile, your computer … You can use it on any device without having the Amazon book reader but if you don’t want to use it anymore , we tell you how to cancel your Kindle Unlimited subscription and other steps you should know when giving it low.
Unlike Amazon Prime Reading, the ‘Unlimited’ version has a monthly cost although it offers you more than a million books that you can read from your tablet, mobile phone, computer or on the company’s ereader. It is independent from Amazon Prime Reading so you can unsubscribe or cancel your subscription to Kindle Unlimited and you can continue enjoying Prime Reading books for as long as you want, they are not binding. It has an extensive catalog that you can consult and use as much as you want but if you are no longer going to use it or it is not useful, you can cancel the subscription to Kindle Unlimited in a few seconds and from next month you will stop having access and they will stop charging you the monthly fee.
Price and plans
First of all, it is convenient to know how much it is worth and if it is worth it. Kindle UNlimited has a two-month free trial period for Amazon Prime users. Once these months pass, it is automatically renewed at 9.99 euros, with a price of 9.99 euros per month that we can cancel whenever we want. It has no permanence and has nothing to do with our Amazon Prime account. That is, we can cancel Kindle Unlimited without the need for this to affect our annual Amazon Prime account, we will continue to enjoy these discounts and the advantages included in the “package” of 36 euros per year from Amazon.
You will be able to continue enjoying the Kindle Unlimited subscription until the last day that you have contracted but afterwards it will not be renewed automatically and you will no longer have access. You will also no longer have access to the content you have downloaded. Even so, the underlines or notes you have made in those books will be saved in your Amazon account in case you re-register the service and have those books again. Or if you buy them individually.
You do not have to wait for the last day of your subscription to cancel it, you can do it from the second day. That is, you can contract the two-month offer for zero euros and automatically, just one day later, cancel it. That does not imply that you will not be able to enjoy the two months but that after these you will not be charged.
To unsubscribe go to:
- Open the Amazon website
- Log in with your username and password in the service
- Tap on “Account and lists” and open the drop-down menu
- In the menu, choose the option “My Kindle Unlimited” as you can see in the attached screenshot
Once here, we will open the specific Kindle Unlimited web page and we can unsubscribe
On the Kindle Unlimited page we will see:
- Your subscription plans
- My borrowed products
On the left you will see how long you’ve been a subscriber and when the next Kindle Unlimited charge will be made and at what price. It will indicate “Your subscription will be renewed for € 9.99 per month, or if you have benefited from a promotion, at the price indicated in its conditions”, as you can see in the attached screenshot. To cancel, you just have to go to the section in the lower left corner of the screen and you will see the means of payment. Here you will find the button “Cancel the subscription to Kindle Unlimited”
This way you will stop belonging to the program and your account will not be charged again. You can come back whenever you want and register it again. As we say, the underlines and bookmarks you have made will still be in your books when you return. If we run into any issues during the process, we can always contact Amazon and request help from customer service.
Can I request a refund?
If right off the bat we find a charge on our account or card that corresponds to the Kindle Unlimited subscription and we have not consciously signed up, then we can cancel our subscription if we do so within 14 days from the date. high. In that case, it is when we can request a refund of the full fee paid, as long as we have not used the service.
Now, once we have already used the Kindle Unlimited service, we can request its cancellation at any time but without the option to request any type of refund. It is also not possible even if we have not used the service in the last month.
