Amazon Prime Subscription Increases to $12.99 a Month

In Category Misc Posted by err0r On 05/26/18 Comments 0

Amazon Prime is getting more expensive for monthly subscribers.

 

Amazon today raised the price of Prime from $10.99 a month to $12.99. The price of a yearly subscription is still $99, so no change there. Meanwhile, Prime Student now costs $6.49 a month, up from $5.49. The price of an annual Prime Student subscription is remaining the same at $49.

 

Prime offers free, two-day shipping on Amazon.com purchases; unlimited access to Prime Video, Prime Music, and Prime Reading; unlimited photo storage via Prime Photos; discounts on games; early access to Amazon's Lightning Deals; and special discounts at Whole Foods.

 

The online retail giant is likely trying to push users to its annual Prime plan, which has always been a better deal for those planning to stick with the service for a while.

 

Now, a monthly subscription makes even less sense financially. If you're on the monthly plan and wind up sticking with Prime for a year, you'll pay almost $156.

 

Amazon is notifying affected Prime subscribers about this change via email.

The company went on to say that it now offers 100 million items with two-day Prime shipping, and same- and one-day deliveries in more than 8,000 cities and towns.
