On Friday, the company wrote in a statement:
"Prime provides a unique combination of shipping, shopping, and entertainment benefits, and we continue to invest in making Prime even more valuable for our members. The number of items eligible for free two-day shipping increased in recent years from 20 million to more than 100 million items. We have expanded Prime Free Same-Day and Prime Free One-Day delivery to more than 8,000 cities and towns... Members also enjoy a growing list of unique benefits like Prime Music, Prime Reading, exclusive products, and much more."
The prices are also climbing for college students, who will pay $6.49 per month, up from $5.49.
Now we can all pay a little more every month to welcome Amazon delivery people into our homes while we're not there.
