As was announced last week, Amazon is changing the price on their Amazon Prime service. For those that don’t know, Amazon Prime offers you free two-day shipping on a variety of products. As well as Prime Instant Video which has a ton of great movies and TV shows available for you to watch. It’s all part of your yearly membership which has been $79 since it was introduced about 7 years ago. Last week, Amazon announced that they are upping the price to $99 per year. Which may seem like a pretty big change, which that is an extra $20/year. But think about it, that’s still less than what you pay Netflix in a years’ time.
For those that have student accounts, or are eligible for a student account, Amazon Prime is currently $40/year and will jump to $49/year as of tomorrow. If you’re a heavy user of Amazon, Amazon Prime is a great service. I’ve been using it for a few years now, and I don’t know what I’d do without it. Even at $99/year, it’s still worth it, at least in my opinion. So if you’re interested in getting into Amazon Prime before the price increase, you’ve got a few hours left to get in on it. We’ve got a link down below for you to sign up from. Don’t forget, you also get a free 30-day trial. So you can cancel within the first month if you don’t want Amazon Prime anymore. But I have a feeling you’re going to like it.
