Switch an EC2 instance from on-demand to spot pricing


I am currently using an EC2 instance (t3.xlarge) with on-demand pricing. How can I switch the instance to spot pricing, without creating a new instance?

It's not currently possible to convert an Amazon EC2 on-demand instance to a spot instance.

You can save your instance as an AMI and then use the AMI as the source for an instance launched as spot instance.
