Refund if I cancel Amazon Prime?

I had my Amazon Prime subscription auto-renew two months ago. Amazon billed my Discover and I got no special rewards. I now have an offer for 5k MRs for a year's subscription on my Platinum, but the offer expires several months before my scheduled renewal.

 

Would it be easy to get a refund on my Discover for the remaining 10 months of my current membership? Would there be anything preventing me from immediately rejoining, paying with Platinum?

 

Or is the $99 on Discover a sunk cost if I want to avoid an interruption of Prime membership for more than a few weeks?

Re: Refund if I cancel Amazon Prime?

Amazon should be able to retroactively refund you (and if you havent used any Prime benefits it can be the whole $99). Just check on the prime membership page. If they don't, because of the monthly Prime version, contact them in a live chat. They tend to be very helpful and can probably do what you want. Just check the Platinum terms to make sure it isnt just for new subscribers.

I canceled a membership back in 2015 I think a couple days after it renewed and an item was delievered. They prorated everything minus $5 or something for what would have been shipping cost on the item.

I have used the shipping feature.

 

One complicating factor is that I have a few video channel subscriptions linked to Prime (which my mother also uses), so cancelling it would mean having to re-enroll in them. So I wouldn't be the only one impacted if there was some lengthy interruption.

 

I may see if others use the offer in a similar way and have a smooth experience. The offer is good for about 6 months. Other people can be guinea pigs.

 

Does anyone know of a way to prepay Prime for the 8/2018-8/2019 period?
