How to Cancel Kindle Unlimited Subscription


Kindle Unlimited gives you access to more than two million books you can access on almost any smart device for a low monthly cost. However, whether you just aren’t finding anything you like on Kindle Unlimited, or the cost of the service no longer fits in your budget, Amazon makes it relatively easy to cancel your Kindle Unlimited subscription. The only caveat is that you can only cancel Kindle Unlimited through the Amazon website, and you can’t cancel it through the Amazon mobile app. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in the YouTube video below.

Six Reasons to Cancel a Kindle Unlimited Subscription

1. Finished Reading All Interested Books

If you’re an avid reader and have subscribed to Kindle Unlimited, you may find that you’ve read all the books that piqued your interest. In this case, you may want to cancel your subscription, as there’s no point in paying for something you’re not using. It’s easy to lose track of time and end up with a bunch of unread books, but if you’ve managed to finish them all, congratulations! You can either wait until there are more books that catch your eye or simply cancel your subscription and save your money for other things.

2. Not Frequent Enough Use

Kindle Unlimited can be an excellent service, but it’s not for everyone. If you find that you’re not using the service frequently enough, it might be time to cancel. There’s no point in paying for something you’re not using, and it’s better to put that money towards something you will enjoy. You can always come back to the service when you have more time to read.

3. Limited Selection or Not to Your Taste

One of the biggest benefits of Kindle Unlimited is the vast selection of books available. However, if you find that the selection is limited or doesn’t suit your taste, you may want to cancel your subscription. After all, there’s no point in paying for a service that you’re not enjoying. Luckily, there are many other options out there, and you’re sure to find something that better suits your reading preferences.

4. Technical Issues

If you’ve encountered technical issues with the Kindle Unlimited service or app, it can be frustrating and may make it difficult to use. In this case, it might be time to cancel your subscription. It’s not worth the hassle and frustration to continue using a service that’s not working correctly. You can always come back to the service when the technical issues have been resolved.

5. Better Alternatives

While Kindle Unlimited is an excellent service, it’s not the only one out there. If you’ve found a better alternative for your reading needs, you may want to cancel your subscription. After all, there’s no point in paying for something you don’t need. You can always come back to Kindle Unlimited if you find that the alternative isn’t working out.

6. Reduce Spending and Cut Back on Subscriptions

If you’re looking to cut back on your spending and subscriptions, canceling your Kindle Unlimited subscription may be a good option. Every subscription adds up, and it’s easy to end up with a bunch of subscriptions that you’re not using. Canceling a subscription you’re not using can help free up some cash that you can put towards other things.
