Amazon Prime Membership Fee Increasing to $99/year

  • Share on Tumblr

Amazon announced that they’ll be raising the annual Amazon Prime¬†(aff link)¬†membership fee from $79/year to $99. According to Amazon, people who sign up within the next 7 days will only pay the $79 fee.

Because the Prime membership program is so widely known, I don’t need to go into much detail. But here are a few benefits in case you need some convincing:

  • Read free Kindle ebooks through Kindle First and the Lending Library (the most important, in my opinion).
  • Unlimited streaming movies and TV shows.
  • Free 2-day shipping with no minimum order required.

I’ve been a Prime member for a while now. Generally, the free 2-day shipping alone makes it worth the price. And if you order a lot from Amazon, the membership fee can easily pay for itself just in shipping cost savings alone.

So if you aren’t a member yet and want to save $20, now’s probably the time to sign up.
