Sprint and Amazon have appeared in quite the number of headlines together lately. This is of course because Sprint has been pushing Amazon's Prime service as one of its benefits. This all began with Sprint announced that some of their plans would come with the ability to sync an Amazon Prime membership with their Sprint plan, effectively bringing the payment for both services together in one easy to manage and centralized payment. Although, this did initially gain some criticism as the Sprint Amazon Prime membership ended up costing customers more over the year than if they had opted to get Prime membership directly from Amazon.
However, since then Sprint has pushed forward with looking to sweeten the Amazon Prime deal in a number of ways with one example being the inclusion of 12 months of Amazon Prime membership for free to those who are on a Better Choice XXL Plan. Now, today Sprint has announced another promotion to further increase the Sprint/Prime adoption rates and in this latest move, Sprint is now offering customers two months worth of Amazon Prime membership for free. Well, sixty days of Prime membership to be exact.
Of course, it is not totally free as you do have to sign up for the Prime add-on to begin with. The service through Sprint typically costs $10.99 per month. However, those who sign up during the month of July will receive their first two months of membership for free. This essentially means Sprint is knocking $21.98 off the annual cost of having the Prime membership through them. Of course, Amazon does already offer a one month free trial of the Prime service for those signing up to Amazon Prime for the first time, so if you do plan to sign up and are a Sprint customer, then this option will net you an additional month for free. Although one of the added benefits of the Sprint Prime route is that you are paying monthly for the service and do not have to pay outright for the year. Which does mean that if you sign up in July, as well as getting the two months free Prime you will also be a Prime member just in time for the upcoming Amazon Prime Day which is scheduled for July 12.
