How to cancel Discord Nitro

Are the premium perks worth paying for?
March 24, 2023

When you start subscribing to a service, it’s easy to take those premium features for granted. For example, after subscribing to Spotify, it can be hard to let go of uninterrupted, ad-free listening. When you cancel Discord Nitro, you will lose things like your profile banner, animated icons, and the ability to use all types of emojis. That said, the service is very much usable for free. So, what do you do when you want to cancel Discord Nitro?


To cancel Discord Nitro, go to User Settings > Subscriptions. Under Discord Nitro, select Cancel > Continue > Confirm.

You used to be able to cancel your Nitro subscription in the mobile app. Unfortunately, this option is not available right now. To manage your subscription, you must do so on desktop.


You will lose all of the perks of the premium subscription at the end of your current billing cycle. That means you will continue to have Discord Nitro until the end of the period you have already paid for. Beyond that, when your subscription ends, you will not be billed unless you decide to restart your Discord Nitro subscription.

Discord Nitro and Discord Nitro Classic are not free services and must be paid for. However, Discord commonly pairs up with other companies, such as Epic Games, to offer small bonuses for free. These are promotional and sporadic, meaning they aren’t always available and are unpredictable. When these kinds of promotions appear, it’s always a good idea to try and take advantage of them while they’re available.

Discord Nitro perks include animated avatars, custom profile banners, custom Discord Tags, custom emojis, animated emojis, the ability to use emojis in other servers, custom stickers, two free Boosts, 30% off Boosts, higher screen share quality, larger upload sizes, and longer messages.

It’s up to you to decide whether Discord Nitro is worth paying for or not. However, if you’re an avid user, these perks regularly come in handy.

No. If you want to leave Discord entirely, you must delete your account rather than just canceling a Nitro subscription.
