Amazon Raising Monthly Prime Membership Fee

Amazon is upping the Prime membership fee by 18% for consumers opting to pay on a monthly basis. The $99 annual Prime membership, which includes Prime Video, remains the same.

Amazon said the $10.99 monthly Prime membership is increasing to $12.99, or $156 per year. The ecommerce behemoth is also upping the college student Prime monthly membership to $6.49 from $5.49.

“Prime provides an unparalleled combination of shipping, shopping and entertainment benefits, and we continue to invest in making Prime even more valuable for our members,” Amazon said in a statement.

Amazon, which just announced the 20 cities it is considering for its second headquarters, said it has increased free two-day shipping from 20 million items to more than 100 million.

  1. Actually amazon is like the rest of them they don’t think about the senior citizen I can’t afford the 100.00 at one time. But why I keep Amazon I have no car to get out and go anywhere so I just order from Amazon or Walmart .

  2. I’ve been paying 1299 since I got after I mistakenly got it for a year and didn’t realize it had movies

  3. I have Amazon and Netflix, I’ll just keep Netflix for 8.99 and say Goodbye Amazon. I don’t shop Amazon anyway, I just watch the prime channels. I can do without it at that price!!!
