I suspect not... though perhaps they would make you sign up for a two year commitment (kind of like a smart phone!). But my guess is that that they expect that once you have Prime, you will not want to give it up.
I suspect a lot of people who signed up thinking they would keep it for a year (say where they expected to make a lot of purchases) have kept it because there are so many perks. Despite my resistence to Kindle, the lending library with prime is probably the strongest inducement to get a Kindle.
