Amazon has increased the price of its Amazon Prime service in the US from $99 to $119. The news was announced along with Amazon’s latest financial results. The new US price will come into effect from the 11th of May for new members and the 16th of June for existing members.
Amazon Prime gives you next day delivery on your orders from Amazon, plus Amazon Prime Video and more.
It looks like the increase will come when you Prime subscription is renewed, so if you have already paid for the next year you wont have to pay the extra cost until the renewal.
In the UK Amazon charges £79 a year for Prime, there are no details as yet on whether Amazon intends to increase the price in the UK. At the current exchange rate £79 translates to $108, so UK users are already close to the new US price.
As soon as we get some more details on whether Amazon intend to increase their price of Prime in more countries, we will let you guys know.
