How to cancel or change your Amazon Subscribe & Save orders

There is no minimum commitment involved.
By
September 21, 2022

The benefits of Amazon’s Subscribe & Save program are essentially twofold: You save a little money with a discount and free shipping, and you don’t have to worry about forgetting to order household staples or personal favorites because they get sent along at regular intervals. The program is free, especially for Prime members. And there is no minimum commitment involved since you can cancel a Subscribe & Save item’s subscription at any time.

But how exactly is that done? The procedure isn’t a secret, but it isn’t obvious either. Let us walk you through the details of canceling a particular Amazon Subscribe & Save item.

How to cancel your Subscribe & Save subscription on Amazon

On the website

From the Amazon home page, type “Subscribe & Save” into the search box at the top and hit Enter.

The Cancel subscription link will be at the bottom of the box that pops up. Click on it.

You will be asked to provide a reason for the cancellation (don’t worry, Other is an available choice), and to confirm it. That’s all there is to it, you will receive no more deliveries of the item you canceled unless you renew the subscription or order it individually.

How to edit your Subscribe & Save delivery

If you follow the instructions above up until the fifth step, at the point where you are editing your subscription’s details, you will see many ways to amend your subscription, instead of canceling it. Specifically, you can change:

  • The quantity delivered each time
  • The frequency of deliveries
  • The next delivery date
  • What product the seller should send if your choice is not available
  • Different product options, such as color or size
  • The shipping address
  • The payment method to be used
  • Whether your gift card balance should be used to pay for the order
  • The billing address
  • The product to be delivered

How to change your Subscribe & Save delivery day

There are a few ways you can change your delivery day with Subscribe & Save. You can change the frequency with which the deliveries arrive, and there will be some choice as to the date of your next delivery. There is also a choice called Need this item right now? but tapping on this leads to instructions to add the item to your cart as a one-time purchase. This loses you your free shipping and any discount that was on the item, however, so you would only want to use that choice in an emergency.
