While most of Amazon's Prime members pay the $99 annually to save money, they have been offering a monthly subscription priced at $10.99/month. For those who opt for this month-to-month pricing, you'll be in for a cost hike as the e-commerce giant has announced a raise up to $12.99 monthly.
Any new signups will automatically be subject to this increased monthly pricing whereas current month-to-month customers will see the $2 increase come on your next billing statement after February 18th. Just to reiterate, this change is ONLY for the monthly plan as the annual $99/year membership is remaining the same for now.
As with the standard Prime subscription, the Prime Student remains at $49/year with collegiate eligibility. The month to month Prime Student membership will increase $1 from its current $5.49 pricing up to $6.49.
