Heads Up: Amazon’s Yearly Prime Price Increasing from $99 to $119

Here's a sneak peek at Amazon's Cyber Monday Deals....

Amazon is raising the annual cost of its Prime subscription service for U.S. customers to $119 per year, up from $99.

The new pricing will apply to existing members’ renewals starting June 16. Annual Prime members will receive an email with their renewal details in May.

The company’s chief financial officer Brian Olsavsky made the announcement during the company’s financial results call Thursday afternoon.

Asked why the company was raising the cost of the membership now, Olsavsky said it is always evaluating the price of Prime in the countries where it is offered.

“This is a better reflection of the cost value of the program,” he said.

The 20% increase comes four years after Amazon last raised the annual price of the highly popular Prime program. In 2014 the cost went from $79 to $99.

My thoughts: 

I’d love to justify this increase by saying that Amazon has provided far more services added to their Prime Subscription in the past year and so it’s worth it but if you don’t use those extra services then, like me, you’ll probably be a bit upset at this increase.

I personally don’t use the “free books” and I don’t even watch a lot of their shows so the $20 extra a year isn’t entirely justified to me. I like the free shipping and the subscribe & save services but I don’t have time to sit down and read a free magazine or play around on Twitch and Prime Pantry, Amazon Music Unlimited, Audible.com, Amazon Channels and Prime Fresh still cost extra… 😡

I am upset at this increase. You can’t just add in extra stuff that I don’t use and then charge me more because you say I am getting more value.

Of course I won’t be cancelling. I run the BEST site for Amazon deals on the freakin’ internet. The Prime Shipping is still worth it to me as I have a pretty busy life and the convenience is amazing.

I wish Amazon would introduce different levels of membership at different prices.

All I need personally is the shipping benefits. Perhaps Amazon will use my extra $20 to introduce new services I’ll actually like. Otherwise they’re just increasing the fiscal barrier to entry for perspective new Amazon Prime members.

Amazon Video App FINALLY Comes to Apple TV

Amazon Video FINALLY Comes to Apple TV

It seems silly doesn’t it? For the longest time Amazon didn’t have an app for Apple TV. I am not sure if this was because of technical limitations or just being at odds with Apple in the device wars, but I suppose they recently found the reason, time and resources to fix this problem.

For years I’ve had to switch inputs, boot up my playstation or connect my computer via HDMI cable so I am happy to see this problem somewhat fixed.

Amazon Video App FINALLY Comes to Apple TV

I say somewhat because the app is quite primitive and you can’t purchase anything through it, but you can buy or rent content on Amazon.com and then play it through the app. At least that’s something. 🙂

no-rush shipping balance

If you’ve been shipping plenty of your purchases with no-rush credit then check your balance here. I used part of my credit last night to rent Demolition Man, an oldie but a goodie. ??? 😉

Amazon Video App FINALLY Comes to Apple TV

Perhaps Amazon has bigger beef with Google now, have you noticed that Amazon doesn’t carry any of the Google Home products?

Amazon News: Prime Members to Get Special Discounts at Whole Foods

Prime Members can rejoice! Not only did Amazon announce today that starting Monday they’re lowing prices at Whole Foods, but according to their press release Amazon…

…will begin to integrate Amazon Prime into the Whole Foods Market point-of-sale system, and when this work is complete, Prime members will receive special savings and in-store benefits.

That’s excellent news for all you savvy shoppers with Amazon Prime!

Here’s what will be new in Whole Foods Market stores on Monday and what customers can expect over time as the two companies integrate:

Starting Monday, Whole Foods Market will offer lower prices on a selection of best-selling staples across its stores, with much more to come.

In the future, after certain technical integration work is complete, Amazon Prime will become Whole Foods Market’s customer rewards program, providing Prime members with special savings and other in-store benefits.

Whole Foods Market’s healthy and high-quality private label products—including 365 Everyday Value, Whole Foods Market, Whole Paws and Whole Catch—will be available through Amazon.com, AmazonFresh, Prime Pantry and Prime Now.

Amazon Lockers will be available in select Whole Foods Market stores. Customers can have products shipped from Amazon.com to their local Whole Foods Market store for pick up or send returns back to Amazon during a trip to the store.

This is just the beginning – Amazon and Whole Foods Market plan to offer more in-store benefits and lower prices for customers over time as the two companies integrate logistics and point-of-sale and merchandising systems.

Are you excited? 🙂
