Amazon Prime: Price Increase after 4/17/14

March 17, 2014

Just giving you all a heads up on the price increase for Amazon Prime from $79 to $99. This is the first price increase since the program started 9 years ago.

So if you’ve been considering signing-up for it, you’ll want to do it before 4/17/14 to get the older rates!

Several of my readers have mentioned how they have found Amazon Prime to be worth it even if you just use it during the holiday season as Amazon has some rock-bottom prices on several items then, and throughout the year.

BTW, you can currently get Amazon Prime *free* for one year when you sign up for one of the two Blue Cash cards from American Express. It’s a special offer they have right now.

There’s the Blue Cash Everyday Card (BCE) and the Blue Cash Preferred Card (BCP). BCP has $75 annual fee; BCE does not. However, BCP has a $100 initial spending bonus (after spending $1K in first 3 months), 6% cash back at grocery stores, and 3% cash back at gas stations, while BCE has just a $50 initial spending bonus, 3% cash back at grocery stores, and 2% cash back at gas stations. There are some other differences as well.

The math is a bit complicated, so you can use the rewards calculator at CreditCardTuneUp. com to compare the two Blue Cash cards for your particular expenses.
