Amazon Is Jacking Up the Price of a Prime Membership
Is it a coincidence that as Jeff Bezos' super yacht is setting sail, the Amazon Prime membership is going up?
A lot of people became more reliant on Amazon during the pandemic and they delivered, within two days. Or three. Or four. But now, they're looking for a raise.
Amazon just announced they're jacking up the price of a Prime membership. They're raising the monthly fee from $13 to $15 . . . and the annual price will be bumped from $119 to $139. That's a hefty 17% increase. It's their first increase since 2018.
The higher rates kick in February 18th for new customers and March 25th for existing customers.
