Amazon Prime cost raised to $99 per year starting April 17

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Corporate News

Amazon Prime increase

Amazon has announced that the cost of Amazon Prime will be increasing to $99 per year this morning (up from $79 per year,) the first time the service has seen a price increase since it launched nine years ago. The company cites increased fuel and transportation costs, alongside increased usage by Prime members, as the reason for the price bump.

Despite the price increase, Amazon Prime is still a fantastic service, introduced back in 2005, that provided unlimited free two-day shipping for millions of items, alongside Prime Instant Video, and the Kindle Owners' Lending Library. When broken down, the monthly cost goes from about $6.58 up to $8.25 per month, making the cost 26 cents more than the price of a monthly Netflix streaming membership.

The price increase goes into effect on April 17th, so if you aren't yet a Prime member, you can lock in the lower rate now.

If you're an Amazon Prime member, does the price increase turn you off from keeping your subscription?
