Amazon Prime Price Increase

Wait, Amazon Prime Increased Its Price to How Much?

Amazon Prime membership will now cost you the same as a wedding dress.

The company announced that it's raising the cost of membership by $20 from $79 to $99, citing an increase in fuel and transportation costs. In case you need a refresher, Prime is a yearly subscription service with perks like free two-day shipping on certain purchases, the chance to borrow one ebook every month from a Kindle library, and free streaming services through Amazon Instant Video. (The cost for the Amazon Student version will also increase to $49.)

The price hike starts March 20 for new subscribers and on April 17 for existing members who renew their subscription after that date.

Like you'd expect, the Internet is torn, some still willing to pay for the service and others — especially those who don't use it often — feeling the sting.

What's your take on the price increase?
