    Not too long ago we posted some rumors suggesting that Amazon would increase its Prime pricing. The speculation at that time was that it might go up to as high as $129.99 per year. The price bump is no longer a rumor and is about to take place next week, but luckily, it won't be quite that high. Amazon Prime's new price will go from $79.99 to $99.99 for the year. Students with an Amazon Prime account will see a smaller increase (although it remains proportional). Their accounts go from $39.99 to $49.99 per year.

    The new pricing will go into effect immediately for new customers starting some time next week (actual date is unspecified at the time of this report). For existing customers...

    Amazon obviously blames the usual suspects: increase in fuel and transportation costs, along with the increase in the number of items available for free two-day shipping. It also mentions the more than 40,000 movies and TV shows available for streaming. I wonder if customers will be renewing?

    If your Prime membership expires after April 17th you would have to renew at the new $99 rate, but at the moment you can still purchase a gift subscription to Prime at the $79 rate. All you need to do is turn off the auto-renew setting on your Prime membership and when you purchase the gift subscription set it to deliver to your own email address on the date that you need to renew your membership.
    That’s all there is to it, so get out there and enjoy one last year of Prime at the low low price of $79.
