Amazon Subscriptions Refund Policy

For digital subscriptions on Amazon, monthly subscriptions do not offer an automatic refund when you cancel. Rather, you maintain access to the service until the renewal date when you would have been charged for the next month. 

However, if the subscription period is longer than one month, (such as 6 months or a year), new subscribers get a 7-day grace period in which to cancel and receive a full refund. You will lose access to the service as soon as Amazon issues your refund.

In other words, if you were just trying a new subscription and changed your mind within a week, you will not have to lose your money and keep using the subscription for the full period.

After the week-long refund window is over, you will no longer get your money back. Instead, the process will be just like canceling a month-long subscription.

There are no early termination or cancellation fees for ending a subscription on Amazon. 

How to Cancel a Non-Amazon Starz Subscription

There are other ways to sign up for Starz than through Amazon. If you signed up using these methods, then you must use the same method to cancel your Starz subscription.

How to Cancel Starz Through Firestick or Fire TV

Firestick and Fire TV are Amazon products. If you used one of these to sign up, you must use Amazon to cancel. 

If you signed up for Starz using your Firestick or Fire TV, use any of the procedures detailed above for how to cancel Starz on Amazon.
