So what you need to do is change the auto-renew settings, and to do so you are going to sign in to your amazon account and then hover your mouse over hello your name. now you get a drop down list, and from that drop down list just click on your prime membership. Now when you click on that option, you are carried to a new page where there is a list menu on the left.

After you are done, you will get a confirmation message “Your membership will end on ………. After that date, you will lose access to your benefits and your card will not be charged”. Now you will have the very same message over there in the left side under the heading next payment.
