Amazon Prime question?

So, recently, I've looked into Amazon Prime, which seems to be a great deal considering there is a 1 month free trial. However, I have heard disputes saying that some people were charged during their first week of the trial. Anyways, my question is, if I signed up for Amazon Prime with a prepaid debit card, and that card ran out of money, what would happen to my Prime membership? Would it be voided, billed on another card, or could I be sued?

    Your membership would terminate.

    You can't.

    From Amazon:

    Only credit cards are eligible for payment of your Prime membership. Do not sign up for Prime with a debit card. Also known as a "check" or "ATM" card, a debit card typically has the word "debit" printed on the face of the card.

    If all credit cards we have on file for you are declined for payment of your membership fee, you have 30 days to provide us a new credit card or your membership will be canceled. If you provide us with a new card and are successfully charged within 30 days, your new membership period will be based on the original renewal date and not the date of the successful charge.


    How do I cancel my Amazon Prime membership?

    Visit the Manage Your Prime Membership page. You can either set your membership to expire at the end of the current term or cancel and stop receiving benefits immediately.
