Amazon has announced that the price of its Prime service will increase by $20 next month, so if you want to lock it in for cheap, the clock is ticking.

This comes only a few months after the company’s announcement in January about increasing the monthly fee for the service from $10.99 to $12.99. On May 11, the yearly fee for Prime will go from $99 to $119. Current subscribers will see the increase for renewals starting on June 16.

If you’ve always wanted to try Prime, now is the time to act before the price goes up. The cost of a yearly subscription is still $99 through May 10. The subscription comes with a ton of perks, including two day shipping on all eligible items, as well as free same day delivery on over a million items. Free two hour delivery when you use Prime Now is also a part of the deal.

You also get Prime Video with your subscription with thousands of movies and shows, free unlimited photo storage, early access to select lightning deals, and 20 percent off new releases in video games. And if you want to get a movie or a game on release day, Amazon Prime does that too.


Many Prime users can’t imagine going without the service, so grab it at the $99 price while you still have the chance!
