What Happens When You Cancel the Amazon Kindle Subscription?
After you end your Amazon Kindle Unlimited membership, you will still have access to your paid books until your current billing period ends, so do not worry.
Once it finishes, you will lose this access and the paid books will no longer be available in your library. On the date of your next billing, your membership will officially end and you will no longer be charged for it again.
Another thing to keep in mind is that you will not get a refund for the remaining months of the contract if you signed up for your membership through a bundle or gift.
Can you Cancel Kindle Unlimited at any time?
Yep! You have all the freedom in the world to cancel your Amazon Kindle Unlimited subscription whenever you want. But remember that you always pay for the next month with the Amazon Kindle Unlimited service.
So, when you decide to cancel your Kindle membership, it will cancel right at the end of your current billing period.
Even though this prevents you from being charged again for renewal, you will lose the chance to get a refund for the month that you canceled in.

Checking through the Kindle Unlimited account page is a simple straightforward way. All you need to do is go to Kindle account. Then, you can find details about your subscription.

Search for the email from Amazon, and when you find it, you will see the end date of your membership, as well as a Continue Membership button at the bottom so you can renew it when you want.
If you received this email, that means that your Kindle Unlimited membership has been canceled successfully.
