TL;DR: From Sept. 15, the Amazon Prime membership fee will increase from £7.99 to £8.99 per month, or £79 to £95 per year if paid annually.
We didn’t think things could get any worse after McDonald’s announced that the price of a cheeseburger was increasing, but we were wrong. We were so very wrong.
From Sept. 15, the Amazon Prime membership fee will increase from £7.99 to £8.99 per month, or £79 to £95 per year if paid annually. That’s not all. The Prime Student membership fee will also increase to £4.49 per month or £47.49 per year. Members will only be charged this adjusted fee when their membership renews on or after the deadline.
Unfortunately, there is no way of avoiding this price hike forever. Unless of course you ditch Amazon Prime for good. Your only option is to lock in the current annual price of £79 per year for the next 12 months. If you sign-up or switch to the annual plan before Sept. 15, you’ll save £28.88 compared to the new monthly fee over the course of the subscription.
Sign up to an annual Amazon Prime membership before Sept. 15 to lock in the current price.
