    Just a quick update, I contacted Amazon and they said if you cancel on the 14th you can take out a new membership on the same day. If you have an existing yearly membership you would receive a partial refund depending on time left.

    Just a note to say that I've merged two similar threads together, so everything is one place in this thread now.

    Thanks,

    Amazon prime is an absolute bargain for regular customers. £1 increase! What's that in relation to what you get! 
    I have their deliveries every week. The staff are brilliant. Rarely late or any problems.
    I have don't mind paying the extra.
    I never watch their videos. That's a lie. I got a a fiver last week from them for playing a video on my phone.
    I have amazon for their deliveries and they are second to none. 
    If high Street shops had their level of service then many of them wouldn't be closing. 
    £8.99 a month for prime is the bargain of the century.
    And no I don't have money to burn. I'm retried on a low fixed income. That's why I have to make the most of my money. I also don't get any state benefits either and pay all bills in full.

    So to remove all doubt, can I ask a question based on renewals BEFORE 15th September?
    My annual renewal is due on 29th August.
    Therefore I am correct in thinking, I do not have to apply any of the above tricks of cancelling and renewing?
    I assume it will be auto-renewed at the old price (£79) and that the membership will be good (at that price) until 29th August 2023 when it will be auto-renewed at whatever the price is at that time.
    Is that how it works?

    I must admit, I have had a few late deliveries and prime now seems to be 3 or 4 days on a lot of things nowadays. 

    Having said that, I love Amazon music and Amazon tv so for me it’s worth the increase of the equivalent of £7.92 a month as I pay yearly.

    Just tried to cancel my subscription but it now only allows you to cancel on your renewal day… :(

    They have already updated my subscription renewal to £95!

    On the MSE article, it says you need to cancel by today (Sun 14th Aug) to get the old price. I don't understand why that is?

    My renewal date is 13th October, so I'm planning on cancelling on 12th September (hopefully getting a month back) before signing up again before the 15th deadline. Can anyone help please?
