Can I Get a Refund After Cancelling My Amazon Kids Plus Subscription?
If you’re considering cancelling your Amazon Kids+ subscription, you may be wondering if you can receive a refund for any remaining subscription time. The answer is yes, Amazon offers refunds in some cases.
If you cancel your subscription within the first 30 days, you can receive a full refund. This is known as the Amazon Kids+ 30-day free trial, and it allows customers to try the service without any risk. If you decide to cancel during this period, you won’t be charged, and you can receive a refund for any subscription fees you paid.
However, if you cancel your subscription after the 30-day free trial has ended, you will not receive a refund for any remaining subscription time. This means that if you cancel in the middle of your billing cycle, you will not receive a refund for the days or weeks that you didn’t use the service.
It’s worth noting that if you cancel your Amazon Kids+ subscription but still have an active Amazon Prime subscription, you may continue to have access to some Kids+ content. In this case, you may not be eligible for a refund, since you still have access to some of the service’s features.
If you’re unsure whether you’re eligible for a refund or have any other questions about cancelling your Amazon Kids+ subscription, you can contact Amazon customer service for more information.
Will I Be Charged If I Cancel Amazon Kids+?
No, you won’t be charged if you cancel before the next billing cycle. Amazon Kids+ is a monthly subscription service, and it will only charge you on a recurring basis for as long as you continue to subscribe. So, if you cancel before the next billing cycle, you won’t be charged again.
Can I Cancel Amazon Kids+ at Any Time?
Yes, you can cancel your Amazon Kids+ subscription anytime without any restrictions. Whether you’re cancelling because you no longer need the service or you’re simply taking a break, you can cancel your subscription at any time.

Reasons to Consider Cancelling Amazon Kids Plus Subscription
The cost of Amazon Kids+ subscription may become too much for some families. Monthly or annual fees add up, and families need to balance their budget. Before renewing, consider if the content offered is worth the cost. Take advantage of the free trial period to see if the service meets your needs.
2. No Longer Needed
Children grow up fast and their interests change. For example, your kids may have transitioned to using other Android devices, or an iPad. When your child no longer shows interest in Amazon Kids+, it may be time to cancel the subscription. Don’t waste money on a service that’s no longer being used.
3. Duplication of Services
If your family already has similar content or services from another provider, there’s no need to keep paying for Amazon Kids+. Compare the offerings and make an informed decision.
4. Privacy Concerns
Privacy is a top priority for many families. Amazon collects and shares data with third-party companies. If you’re uncomfortable with this, consider canceling the subscription.
5. Lack of Content
Your child may not find enough content in Amazon Kids+ to keep them entertained. A lack of interesting and engaging content is a common reason for cancellation. Research alternative options and make a change if necessary.
6. Technical Issues
Technical problems, such as slow streaming or difficulty accessing content, can be frustrating. If the service doesn’t meet your expectations, consider canceling and looking for a better option.
7. No Longer Using Amazon Devices
If your family switches to using different devices or platforms, you may no longer need Amazon Kids+. Make sure the service you’re paying for is being used to its full potential.
