One of the great things about being an Amazon Prime member is that Amazon has more or less kept the price of an annual membership reasonable (it’s still less than $9/month) while simultaneously working hard to deliver more perks for existing and new subscribers. In turn, it’s not at all surprising that Amazon Prime continues to grow by leaps and bounds. According to recent data compiled by Cowen & Co., Amazon’s Prime service now boasts upwards of 50 million subscribers, representing an impressive 23% increase year-over-year.
Forget next-day or even same-day deliveries. Even two-hour shipping doesn’t sound that good when it could be even faster. Amazon is now ready to deliver products in just one hour to your door. But yes, there’s a huge catch: It only applies to certain goods purchased in the UK. More →
It might seem expensive at $99 per year, but Amazon Prime is one of Amazon’s best products, and one of the best deals on the internet.

And if that’s not enough, Amazon keeps adding new features to its Prime program.

One of the advantages Amazon has over its competitors is the Amazon Prime service. Among the many perks Amazon Prime has to offer is speedy free two-day shipping, which is a good enough reason to subscribe to the service if you shop online regularly.

The Amazon Prime is one of the best services the giant retailer has to offer. Not only does it offer free two-day shipping on Amazon purchases, but it includes additional perks such as access to plenty of music and video streaming catalog. You still have to pay $99 every year to enjoy these perks, which is a great value considering everything that’s included with Prime. However, Amazon is looking to make its Prime service even more attractive and affordable by changing the way it’ll charge you. Furthermore, Amazon’s Prime Video service will be available as a standalone product for the first time since its introduction, competing directly with Netflix. More →
Over the past few years, Amazon has done quite a bit to make its $99/year Prime membership an appealing proposition. From free shipping and access to an impressive selection of video content, Amazon Prime is arguably as alluring a service as Netflix. At the same time, life on Amazon for non-Prime subscribers has become a bit more aggravating over the years. Speaking to this point, Amazon this week announced that it’s raising the minimum price for free shipping for non-Prime users.

There are many advantages for getting an Amazon Prime subscription and the giant retailer is going to further sweeten the offer.

Amazon surprised its customers on Tuesday, launching a brand new feature for its Amazon Prime video streaming service: access to premium TV networks. The new service kicks off only days after a report claimed that Amazon is looking to up the ante in its bid to better compete against Netflix, Hulu and other online streaming programs.
In other words, it might be better than ever to subscribe to Amazon Prime in light of the new bundled programming, though new content channels will still require separate subscriptions.
