Amazon’ music service is now streamed by more than 55 million people, who are ultimately their customers. And no wonder about the refund requests, because the higher the figure, the higher the turnover.

That said, since you are reading this guide, you must as well be seeking the way you can get a refund for your accidental Amazon music service subscription. Or in alternate case, you must have changed your mind after subscribing to the music streaming platform.

But, is there really a way to get a refund? Or your money is long gone to see your bank account once again? Whatever it is, let us find it all out with this TheNewsandViews blueprint, right after learning the difference between Amazon Music Prime and Amazon Music Unlimited.

Difference between Amazon Music Prime and Amazon Music Unlimited

It is essential that you know the difference between the two, i.e., Amazon Music Prime and Amazon Music Unlimited.


Because both of them have different perks, functions, features, and pricing; also the ways they are being canceled and refunded.


Amazon Music Prime is a value-added music streaming service that comes included within the Amazon Prime membership, which costs around $13 a month or $119 a year. For students, however, Amazon offers an exclusive plan, which is priced at $7 a month and $59 a year.

As for Amazon Music Unlimited, if you are an Amazon prime member, you can stream your favorite music for $7.99 a month, and if you are not, you can avail the platform for $9.99 a month.

You see, in both cases, you will have to pay to use Amazon Music unlimited, and should it raise a question of why would you want to use it? Which it will, you can find your answer in the next difference below.

Music & Accessibility

Where Amazon Music Prime allows you to explore 2 million songs and thousands of professionally formulated playlists by Amazon’s music professionals, Amazon Music Unlimited lets you do even more.

With Amazon Music Unlimited, you could dwell into the ocean of 75 million songs paired with proficiently-programmed playlists, and the entire albums of your favorite artists. That’s a huge gap between the two.

And that most probably is the reason why you have to pay more for Amazon Music Unlimited than Amazon Music Prime itself. However, features like ad-free listening, offline listening, and unlimited plays are alike in both the subscriptions.

How Can You Cancel Your Amazon Music Prime and Amazon Music Unlimited Subscription and Get a Refund?

Now you know for which subscription you have to pay an additional amount, and which comes included within the Amazon Prime membership. It is time you learn how you can cancel both of them and get a potential refund against the subscriptions.

Canceling the Amazon Music Prime and Unlimited Subscriptions

Amazon Music Prime and Amazon Music Unlimited are canceled in different ways.

Actually, if you are a fan of Amazon Prime and wish to cancel your Amazon Music Prime subscription, it is obvious that you’ll have to unsubscribe from your Amazon Prime subscription for that.

It is because Amazon Music Prime is a value-added service of Amazon prime, which, if canceled, will have you stripped off all other prime features, which you may or may not want to let go.

Amazon Music Unlimited, on the other hand, regardless of you being a prime member, is charged at an additional cost, thereby, can also be canceled separately. And to be able to cancel this subscription, you should know in how many ways you can subscribe to it.

  1. You can subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited through iTunes, which you’ll have to cancel by going to Apple’s official website, and following the prompts.
  1. You can subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited through your mobile service provider, which you’ll have to cancel by contacting them.
  1. The last, however, is subscribing to the music streaming platform through Amazon directly. That you’ll cancel by following the steps below:
  • Browse to the settings of Amazon Music.
  • From there, select Amazon Music Unlimited.
  • You will see the ‘cancel’ button around the details of subscription renewal.
  • Click the button and confirm the cancellation.

If you are unsubscribing from Amazon Music Unlimited in the middle dates, i.e., a few days before your month ends, you’ll still be able to access your playlists and titles. But as soon as the month ends, they’ll all be grayed-out.

Getting a Refund Against Your Amazon Music Prime and Unlimited Subscription

Let’s put it this way, If you are a prime member and haven’t used any of its benefits including the Amazon Music Prime itself, you will get a full refund.

Now for the Amazon Music Unlimited only, if you have accidentally or deliberately subscribed to this streaming service, and you didn’t even log-in to the platform, you can’t get a refund.

Not to forget the partial refund, which is provided only if you have used your prime subscription for the delivery benefits, and nothing else.


Pricing, music, and accessibility are the three main differences between Amazon Music Prime and Amazon Music Unlimited. While Amazon Music Prime comes included within the prime subscription, the Amazon Music Unlimited has to be subscribed independently. Such difference separates their methods of canceling, and ultimately, the refunding—which is not applicable to Amazon Music Unlimited subscription.
