  • A two-column menu will appear; look for “Memberships & Subscriptions” on the right column and click on it.
  • On this screen, it will list all your active memberships and subscriptions. Locate your Amazon Prime subscription and click the “Manage Subscription” link next to it.
  • Tap on “Manage Membership” up at the top.
  • Select “End membership“.
