The monthly price for Amazon Prime is climbing from $10.99 to $12.99, which represents almost a 20 percent uplift.

What do you think of the Amazon Prime price increase for monthly subscribers?

With the new pricing scheme, the monthly option comes out to $155.88 a year, up from $131.88. On a yearly premise, month to month enrollments will now cost buyers $156 a year. Annual membership remains $99 - or $49 for students - if paid in one installment.

New York Mets Invite Tim Tebow to Major League Spring Training
It was his first attempt to play competitive baseball since his junior year of high school, the spring of 2004. His power and athleticism impressed scouts and eventually led to him signing with the Mets that September.

Amazon also pointed out that the number of items eligible for two-day shipping recently jumped from 20 million to 100 million, and it called attention to original viewing content on Prime Video such as "the Golden Globe-winning The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" and The Grand Tour. But the annual membership cost is staying the same, at $99.

Amazon Prime members in the U.S. will see the cost of their monthly bill rise. Existing Prime and Prime Student members will pay the new price for renewals happening after February 18.

Customers in the United States will see the monthly price of Amazon Prime rise from $10.99 to $12.99.

Blizzard Adds Over 100 New Items to Overwatch on January 23
The new legendary appears to have been teased earlier in the week when Blizzard posted a video revealing new Overwatch sprays. These new items will be available in the regular Loot Boxes and will be available as unlocks in the Hero Gallery as well.

In a statement the company said Prime continues to be a tremendous value for customers and that the company will "keep introducing new ways to make members' lives even better". There are an estimated 90 million households using the service, an increase of 30 percent year-over-year. Is Amazon trying to push more people into becoming annual members?

Amazon has also had success with its Prime Now service.

Amazon has never disclosed how many Prime subscribers it has.

Amazon is notifying affected Prime subscribers about this change via email. However, both Amazon and Netflix have room for further price hikes, which should be expected by consumers, with CBS' Showtime over-the-top (OTT) service costing $11 per month and Time Warner's HBO Now at $15 per month.
