Heads up Prime members! Starting 2/18, the Amazon Prime Yearly Membership will be increasing from $119 to $139 per year.

Existing members will see the increase reflected in their renewal price starting 3/25. We tend to see rate increases every four years. Monthly memberships will also be affected and will see an increase from $12.99 to $14.99.

Keep the Same Price A Little Longer:

If you have a membership but don’t want to renew at the higher rate, you can get a gift membership which you can still get for $119 for a year. You can then set your current membership so that it will not auto-renew and use the gift membership for the next year when your current subscription ends.

Don’t Pay Monthly:

If you pay monthly this price increase is even worse.  While breaking the payment up feels less painful, in reality you are paying MUCH more for Prime.

At $14.99 a month, you will pay $179.88 a year for Amazon Prime.  That’s painful and probably not worth the membership…

One More Savings Option:

For anyone with a Kroger nearby you’ll find they sell Amazon gift cards.  Now through 2/15 you can also get 4X the fuel points on gift card purchases.  Grab a couple $50 Amazon gift cards and you’ll earn 20¢ off per gallon of gas (up to 35 gallons) for each gift card you buy.
