Amazon Prime Basics: How Much Does It Cost?
Amazon’s Prime membership begins by signing up for a free 30-day trial, after which members pay either a discounted yearly fee or a regular monthly fee (currently $119 for the yearly membership, or $12.99 per month for monthly membership). There is also an Amazon Prime Student membership option for college students who have an email address that ends with .edu which cost about half the price of the standard Amazon Prime member ($6.49 per month or $59 per year, after a free six-month trial).
