How much does Amazon Prime cost?

The Amazon Prime cost is $14.99/£8.99 per month. There aren’t that many price plans or options available for Amazon Prime. However, there is more than one.

Depending on what range of services you want and how often you’d like to see money deducted from your bank account, here are all the current options available.

Amazon Prime price plans:

  • $14.99/£8.99 per month
  • $139/£95 annually

This subscription includes a large range of services on top of access to Prime Video. Services include Prime Video, unlimited premium delivery, unlimited music streaming, unlimited reading for your smart device or Kindle, unlimited gaming, and Unlimited photo storage for your Amazon Drive.

If you aren’t fussed with all that Prime has to offer, you can also opt to only pay for Prime Video, which will only cost you $8.99/£5.99 per month. So yeah, needless to say, you have a wide range of options at your streaming disposal.

Readers should also note that Amazon Prime is going to be introducing ads to its service in early 2024. If you want to continue watching all your shows and films free of interruptions, you will need to buy the ad-free tier, which will add an additional $2.99/£2.44 per month to your overall membership cost.

Ads are just the latest in Amazon Prime’s add-ons since not everything is currently free in the streamer’s library. Some movies and series require additional payment for renting and buying titles. These prices generally vary; however, renting usually costs $3.99/£3.49, and buying a film on Amazon Prime is normally $14.99/£13.99.
