Amazon raises monthly price for Prime service in the US

Monday 22 January 2018 | 14:50 CET | News
Amazon has raised the rate for its Amazon Prime service in the US to USD 12.99 from 10.99, effective immediately, Cnet reported. Customers using the monthly option will start paying the higher price on their first payment after 18 February. Prices will not change for those taking the annual subscription option. The monthly option for customers using government aid will not change either. An Amazon spokesperson said the increase resulted from Prime members' "tremendous appetite" for Prime benefits including unlimited two-day shipping, as well as Amazon's continued investment in Prime perks.
