Effective immediately. Amazon is raising its prices for monthly Prime subscription.
$10.99 to $12.99 ( $2 increase )
Student prices are going up as well.
$5.49 to $6.49 ($1 increase )
If you have already paid your monthly subscription for January then you will see your bill increase starting February.
But don’t worry, all those on annual subscriptions are not getting a price increase.
The annual is still priced at $99 (or $49 for students) With the new pricing scheme, it looks like Amazon is pushing for annual subscribers, and at this rate, it’s looking more like a better deal.
