Can I put my Kindle Unlimited subscription on hold?

Answered by Ricardo McCardle

You can put your Kindle Unlimited subscription on hold if you receive a pre-paid subscription while being a month-to-month subscriber. This means that your existing month-to-month membership will be paused during the pre-paid period, and you will not be charged for that duration.

Putting your Kindle Unlimited subscription on hold can be a convenient option if you want to take a break from using the service but still have an active membership. It allows you to temporarily suspend your monthly payments without losing any benefits or access to the Kindle Unlimited library.

When you receive a pre-paid subscription, whether it’s a gift or a promotion, Amazon will automatically put your month-to-month membership on hold. This means that you won’t be billed for the duration of the pre-paid period, and your membership will be reactivated once the pre-paid period is over.

During the hold period, you will not have access to new books or be able to borrow books from the Kindle Unlimited library. However, any books you have previously borrowed or purchased will still be accessible on your Kindle device or app.

To resume your month-to-month membership after the pre-paid period, you don’t need to take any additional actions. Amazon will automatically restart your membership and you will be billed again on a monthly basis. You can continue enjoying the benefits of Kindle Unlimited, such as unlimited reading and access to a vast selection of books and audiobooks.

Putting your Kindle Unlimited subscription on hold can be a useful feature if you have other reading priorities or simply want to take a break without canceling your membership altogether. It provides flexibility and allows you to manage your subscription according to your needs and preferences.

In my personal experience, I have found the option to put my Kindle Unlimited subscription on hold quite convenient. There have been times when I wanted to focus on reading physical books or explore other reading platforms for a while. Being able to pause my membership without any additional cost or losing access to my previously borrowed books has been beneficial. It has allowed me to customize my reading experience and make the most out of my Kindle Unlimited subscription.
