As the the demand to ship more and more products straight to your door goes up, so does the cost. Amazon Prime members will be feeling this shift come June - when Amazon increases it's yearly Prime Membership cost by 20%
Annual Prime Memberships will jump in cost from $99/year to $119/year. The news was revealed by Amazon's CFO earlier today.
Back in 2014 Amazon increased the $79 price tag to $99, so it seems that these increases are something we can expect more of in the future.
I subscribe to the yearly Prime Membership, and while I am disappointed by this increase.. I likely will keep my service, because that 2day shipping is just too dang handy!!
