Last week Amazon announced it would be increasing Prime yearly membership fees from $79 to $99. This is the first increase since the service launched in 2005. Today is the last day for new members to start a free 30 day trial and lock in the lower rate for their first year. There’s no harm in starting a free trial as you can cancel at any time without penalty.

Existing users can try this workaround to renew their memberships at the lower rate or if you’ve decided to move on from Prime you can get a free year of ShopRunner. amazon-prime-9to5toys
