How to Cancel an Amazon Prime Subscription

It feels like Amazon is never talked about when the conversation is about streaming. Even though, when people talk about streaming Netflix is always the first word that comes to mind, Amazon’s offering is actually pretty robust and full of high-quality original shows and movies.
There are reasons for the lack of talk about Amazon Prime Video, the biggest one is the fact that Amazon Prime Video is more of a companion service to Netflix, overall it is just a weaker offer. It cannot replace or even compete with Netflix’s massive catalog of hit shows and originals.

There is however one reason why it might be worth it. Amazon Prime Video is part of the Amazon Prime subscription, this means that if you are one of the 150 million people that are subscribed to Amazon Prime, you also get access, at no extra cost, to the Prime Video service. This means that Amazon Prime is an incredible offer for the amount of money you have to pay monthly or yearly. The main perks of the service are free one-day shipping, access to Prime Video, and a bunch of other services that we won’t talk about because that is not why you are here.
