A price increase for subscribing to Amazon Prime has been rumored for several weeks now and it appears those rumors will become reality soon.
According to a graphic on Amazon’s home page the opportunity to lock in Amazon Prime at its current $79 per year pricing is being offered to customers.
In that graphic, which is posted below, they have crossed out $99 which seems to indicate that will soon be the higher price of the subscription at some point in the near future.
Currently Prime subscribers enjoy the following benefits:
- Free two day shipping many items
- No minimum order size
- Instant streaming of over 40,000 movies and TV shows
- Kindle Owner’s Lending Library
As this rumored price increase was discussed in the last several weeks there were reports that they would add a music streaming service to the offerings with the subscription but there is nothing indicated on the current Prime information page.
What do you think – is Amazon Prime still worth it at $99?
