How do I unsubscribe to a kindle newspaper?

Updated July 20, 2017

In the first half of 2010, sales of ebooks for Amazon's industry-leading Kindle reader tripled, outpacing sales of hardback books. But both magazines and newspapers are also available to Kindle users. Papers as venerable as The New York Times and Wall Street Journal as well as smaller papers like Memphis' Commercial Appeal have Kindle editions available. It is incredibly easy to subscribe to one. It is slightly more difficult to extricate yourself from an unwanted subscription.

Visit the Amazon home page, click the "My Account" link in the upper-right corner of your screen and sign into your account. This brings you to the "Your Account" screen.

Click the "Manage your Kindle" link in the "Digital Management" section halfway down the page to proceed to the Kindle Management page.

Scroll down to the "Your active Kindle subscriptions" section toward the bottom of the screen. This section lists all of your Kindle subscriptions. Both magazines and newspapers are included. Click the "Cancel Subscriptions" link.

Confirm that you want to unsubscribe by clicking on the pop-up box. Amazon will also ask why you have decided to unsubscribe. You don't have to check an appropriate box, but you may want to reply to help Amazon make the newspaper content better. Finally, click the yellow "Cancel Subscription" box and you're done.
