Did You Receive The Email That Amazon Prime Is Increasing To $99?
Received this in my email this morning. I saw the question from last month where there was suspicion of the price going up but it's now official.
Unsure how I feel about 25% increase in cost. I think it would have been better to do 2 years at $10/year but that's just me. We'll see how I feel about it next year when I'm faced with paying the higher price.
We are writing to provide you advance notice that the price of your Prime membership will be increasing in 2015. Your 2014 annual renewal will remain at the original price of $79. On April 12, 2015, your membership will renew at $99/year.
Even as fuel and transportation costs have increased, the price of Prime has remained the same for nine years. Since 2005, the number of items eligible for unlimited free Two-Day Shipping has grown from one million to over 20 million.
We also added unlimited access to over 40,000 movies
