However, offering a monthly service with no contract or guarantee carries with it a cost to manage and volatility that isn't present with the more dependable annual option.

Student Prime pricing will jump up a dollar per month from $5.49 to $6.49.

Amazon.com Inc today raised the monthly fee for Amazon Prime, its fast-shipping and video-streaming service, to US$12.99 (RM50) from US$10.99.

Amazon in recent years has seen strong growth in Prime sign-ups, though the company still doesn't disclose specific figures on Prime memberships.

Not raising the price for annual subscribers is more about creating loyalty, he said.

US House acts to avoid shutdown as deadline nears

Prime customers, now estimated to reach 90 million USA households, routinely spend about twice as much on Amazon as non-Prime shoppers.

If you pay for Amazon Prime membership on a monthly basis, get ready to pay a little more.

The annual price of $99 won't increase and would offer an increasingly better value since the new monthly price works out to about $156 a year.

Amazon says it has no preference on the annual versus monthly option.

Earlier this month, CIRP released an analysis that found that Prime members spend $1,300 on average each year, compared with $700 for non-Prime customers.
