Hi there and welcome

To renew this you must update the details via your computer on your Amazon account.

To do this, please do the below steps.

Visit the page for your account -

- Log into using your Amazon account (the same Amazon account you have registered on your Kindle)

On the right side select "Settings"

Under 'Kindle Payment Settings' (first option)

Click 'Edit Payment Method'

Change your credit card details.

Restart your Kindle and it will update

It will then be updated

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Hi Richard
How do I find out my account details?
so I cant change this through my kindle ? I actually have to change it online?
Expert:  Richard replied 10 months ago.

yes, you change it via your computer online and it updates to the Kindle

Are you able to do the instructions I gave?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I can try online but I don't remember my account details. When I go onto the site will it tell me the details?
Expert:  Richard replied 10 months ago.

It is your email address and your Amazon password, do you remember the password ***** set when you first set up the Kindle?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
no I don't remember it
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
is it better that I deregister and reregister?
Expert:  Richard replied 10 months ago.

No, do not do that, as then you cannot register it until you get access to your account

Go here and reset your password *****

Then sign in with this new password

Let me know the results please.
