Amazon Prime membership fees are about to increase



Do you use Amazon’s monthly Prime membership?  I’ve got a bad news! The company’s bumping up pricing from $10.99 to $12.99. That comes out to about $156 a year — which is a $24 increase over the old price.

You can view the Amazon Price Change.  If you pay the  $99 yearly fee up front, pricing will stay the same.  The increase will also impact the company’s student pricing, moving from $5.49 to $6.49. Like the standard Prime membership, the yearly fee is staying put at $49.
