Amazon Could Hike Prime Fees To $119 Per Year

Saturday, February 8th, 2014 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips

Rising fuel costs could cause Amazon to hike the price of Amazon Prime by up to $40 a year.

Right now the company charges $79 for Prime, which includes the Instant Video library, the Kindle Owners Lending Library and free two-day delivery on selected items.  The Prime program has tens of millions of members, but that’s translated into rising costs for the company, due to the rising cost of shipping. Users could pay closer to $120 a yer for the service, though the amount of the increase has not yet been determined.

Amazon has already raised the minimum for free shipping for non-Prime members to $35 per order.

    I just bought a one year subscription for my tablet for $79.00 and that is a bit high for what you get if it goes up any more I will not do another year for sure. books aren’t the greatest and neither are the movies etc

    $79 is pushing it for what I get for my kindle $119 is a possible “no go”. I think I spend enough on Amazone for them to appreciate my business and keep it to at least no more than $79.
