Amazon increases its monthly Prime membership rate to $12.99
Amazon has increased its monthly Prime membership fee from $10.99 to $12.99, an increase of 18 percent. Amazon first announced the monthly payment option less than two years ago. This is the first price increase since the monthly option was introduced. The annual membership option, which requires customers to pay a one-time fee of $99, is not increasing at this time, according to Recode.
