When is Amazon Prime Price Going Up?
By now, you may have heard that Amazon Prime changed their price to $99 per year beginning March 20, 2014 or April 17th for renewals. This is $20 more per year – or $1.67 per month.
Amazon Students will also see an increase. Currently priced at $39, Amazon Students will now be paying $49.
You may be wondering, “Is Amazon Prime worth it at $99 per year?”
This is a decision everyone will need to make for themselves, but I am convinced it is a worthwhile investment for me.
In addition to the free 2 day shipping, here are a few other great benefits:
- FREE movies, documentaries and TV shows, commercial-FREE (Netflix runs $96 per year)
- FREE eBook library for Kindle owners with tens of thousands of titles
- 20% off your entire order when you have 5 Subscribe & Save items ordered in a month
- As an Amazon Mom member with Prime, you’ll save 20% off diapers and wipes subscriptions (it’s free to sign-up for Amazon Mom). Pair that with Amazon coupons to save even more.
I also love Amazon Prime because it complements all of those Amazon gift cards that I earn with Swagbucks. Once I earn $5 or $10, I can grab an item without being charged shipping on top of the gift card. This has saved me HUNDREDS of dollars through the years.
