How Do I Check My Prime Status?

By David Krug 4 minute read

With Amazon Prime, consumers may enjoy quicker shipping choices, frequent discounts and rebates, and access to a number of unique services on Amazon.com.

What if you want to know if you already have Amazon Prime before signing up for (or canceling) a membership? This is what I’ve learned thus far!

In 2022, how will I know if I still have Amazon Prime?

When Amazon Prime membership expires in 2022, customers should verify their account status by logging in to the Amazon website. Afterwards, users should click on the “Your Prime Membership” link on their account page and be led to the “Manage Your Prime Membership” page. The customer’s current status will be shown underneath their name on this page.

Whether Amazon automatically renews prime memberships, how to prevent being overcharged by Amazon, and much more are all covered in this article!

What Are the Steps I Need to Take to Verify My Amazon Prime Account?

It’s a good idea to check on the status of your Amazon Prime subscription on a regular basis. To determine whether or not you are a current member, follow these steps:

  • If you are signed into Amazon, go to the account dropdown menu and select “My Account.”
  • In the drop-down menu, choose “Manage Prime Membership.”
  • You’ll be able to view the current state of your membership by looking to the left of your name.

If you’re not already a member of Amazon Prime, you’ll notice an offer to become so when you log onto the site.

Click “Memberships & Subscriptions” to see your whole Amazon membership list. A search bar and a help section are included on this page, which lists all of your past and present subscriptions.

All of Amazon’s membership programs are included in your Prime subscription, including Prime Student (for students), Amazon Family, Amazon at Your University, and AmazonSmile (for customers).

Is Amazon’s Prime Membership Renewal Program Automatic?

Check your Amazon Prime subscription since Amazon has a function that automatically renews it. Your credit card will be charged for a new membership with Amazon Prime when your current one expires. Even if it’s only a free trial, you still have the option to disable this function.

To prevent getting overcharged, be sure to save your changed settings after selecting “disable auto-renew” in your account’s “Manage Prime Membership” section. It’s also worth noting that you have the option of receiving email notifications from Amazon if your Prime membership is about to expire or needs to be renewed.

Be careful to go through all of the options on the Prime membership page and make sure they’re set up according to your tastes.

How Do I Renew My Amazon Prime Membership?

In the Amazon Prime Terms & Conditions, you can find all the information you need to know about signing up and canceling your Amazon Prime subscription.

If you want to know what you’re getting into when you join up for Amazon Prime, you should read this.

Visit your Amazon Prime account settings to cancel, renew, or reactivate your subscription.
Unless you have Amazon Prime or have canceled your subscription in the past, you should see adverts touting the benefits of Prime across all of your devices.

You should be aware that there are cancellation costs if you have a Prime subscription and intend to cancel it. Amazon Prime customers can cancel at any time in their subscription settings if they joined up directly through Amazon.

You may also get a full refund from Amazon if you cancel your subscription within three business days of signing up or upgrading your free trial to a paid one.

For the duration of the three-day period, Amazon does charge the value of the Prime perks used by the account. You won’t get your membership money back if you cancel at any time, unless you haven’t used any Prime features or made any qualifying purchases since the most recent payment.

Bottom Line

The “Prime Membership” option, which can be accessed after logging into your Amazon account, shows whether or not you have a current Amazon Prime membership.

Members and former memberships to Amazon may be shown by selecting “Memberships & Subscriptions” from the menu. Under the Prime membership options, you may cancel your subscription, make changes to your payment method, or modify your choices for automatic renewal.

If you decide to discontinue Amazon Prime, be careful to verify the expiration date and cancel accordingly to avoid being overcharged. If you need a break and won’t be using your Prime privileges for a time, you may put your membership on hold.
