Is Amazon Prime Still Worth The Cost?

That’s the million dollar question being asked by many Amazon Prime subscribers, including myself, after Amazon announced a price increase to their Amazon Prime membership service.

This shouldn’t come as a shock to most as Amazon hasn’t raised the price on Amazon Prime since it was introduced nine years ago. Yet many people are shocked and frustrated with the price increase, from $79 a year to $99 a year, an increase of $20.

Amazon Prime Increase makes me frown

When Pam and I decided to cut the cable subscription just over a year ago, we decided we’d go with Amazon Prime because of their movie and TV show streaming. The cost was right and we were also given free 2 day shipping with any purchases fulfilled by Amazon. Great for those impulse purchases.

But now we’ve got to rethink whether or not we’ll continue Amazon Prime once our yearly membership is up.
