Last Day to Get Amazon Prime Before the Price Increase




, ,

Amazon is increasing the price of its Prime membership starting Friday, Feb. 18. Now, the yearly subscription is getting a $20 price hike from $119 to $139 and the monthly fee will go up $2 from $12.99 to $14.99.

Today is the last day to get the membership at current prices before the increase goes into effect for new members tomorrow. Current Prime members will see the price increase beginning March 25, or whenever their subscription renews.

This price change won’t affect the stand alone Prime Video subscription, which will remain $8.99 per month.

Amazon last increased the price of a Prime membership in April 2018. At that time, the price of Prime went up from $99 per year to $119. 

Prime passed the 200 million subscriber mark in April 2021. With Amazon Prime, members get free 2-day shipping on millions of items (some even faster), plus access to Prime Video, Amazon Music, Cloud photo storage, and more.
