Sprint has just announced a new promotion with Amazon, where you can purchase Amazon Prime through Sprint for $10.99 per month. That may seem like a decent deal on the surface, but you’ll actually be paying more in the long run. Amazon Prime is $99 per year, Amazon doesn’t charge you per month (which is why on the surface, Sprint’s promo looks better). But with Sprint, where you are paying $10.99 per month, that’s going to come to about $132 per year. That’s $33 more than what Amazon would charge you. That’s a pretty big increase compared to Amazon.
With Amazon Prime, there are loads of goodies included. Of course the most popular feature is the free two-day shipping. There is also next-day shipping available and it’s $3.99 for most items. However since Prime started, Amazon has steadily been adding more and more features to Prime. Which include free movies and TV shows, Amazon Prime Music, as well as unlimited cloud storage for pictures and such. You also get early access to Amazon’s Lightning deals, which occur every single day. For $99 per year, it’s a pretty good value.
Where Sprint is charging you more for Amazon Prime, you must be wondering what is special about this deal? Nothing. Sprint isn’t throwing in anything extra for their customers to buy Amazon Prime through them. You get all of the same features, you’re just paying for it each month instead of once a year. Not much of a promo, but it will definitely get people interested.
Sprint’s CEO, Marceo Claure mentioned in a prepared statement that Amazon Prime “is another example of the innovative options that Sprint delivers every day to its customers”. He went on to talk about how this monthly add-on gives “customers great flexibility and will have the opportunity to easily access Amazon’s full entertainment package on America’s fastest LTE network.” There will likely be some people interested in signing up, but there likely won’t be a long line of users looking to sign up.
