Amazon Prime is $99 a year. Now you can get it as a third-party service on Sprint for… $131.88 a year. But the carrier has come to an agreement with Amazon to provide a monthly subscription fee of $10.99, tacked to your cell service bill.
If you’re looking for the convenience of paying for a pricey annual subscription at a more digestible monthly, if more expensive rate, this may be for you. If you don’t rely on Amazon for more than the free two-day shipping and would like to keep Prime for the holiday shopping season, you have the option to hop in and out. You’ve got nine months out of 12 before you break even on the proposition.
If you want options and end up getting them, use them. As the carrier that brought back the two-year contract, we would believe that Sprint would say the same thing.
