💰How much does Amazon Prime cost?

The second formula comes in the form of a annual subscription offered at 49 €. An option that is particularly suitable for people who are used to making regular purchases on the online platform throughout the year.

👍Amazon Prime: what are the advantages of the premium service?
Free and 1 working day delivery and Express delivery
When ordering on the internet, one of the important elements in the eyes of a large number of Internet users is the delivery time. Indeed, the faster the object so desired arrives (and in good condition), the greater the satisfaction. If you are part of this category of people impatient to receive their package after ordering it on the internet, the Prime program allows you to benefit from the one working day delivery on millions of eligible itemss. These are easily identifiable thanks to the Prime badge attached to the products that interest you.
So yes, other e-commerce brands also offer delivery within one working day, but it is often subject to a minimum purchase amount. With Amazon Prime, this is not the case since it is not subject to any minimum purchase. One working day delivery is available in mainland France (excluding Corsica) but also in Belgium.
For those in a hurry, there is in particular the Free Express shipping service. It is valid on more than 7 million items and allows you to receive your package the same evening. Amazon Express delivery is possible from 25 euros of purchases and available in Paris and in many municipalities in the Paris region (on more than 2 million items), in Lyon, Lille, Aix-en-Provence and in Marseille (out of more than 800,000 articles).
Unlimited access to Prime Video, Amazon’s Netflix
With Amazon Prime, you also get unlimited access to the catalog of Prime Video movies and series. Like Netflix, Amazon also has its own video streaming service, Amazon Prime Video. The latter has a catalog of films and series with in particular exclusive Amazon Original productions. Some have also been awarded at the Golden Globes, which further proves their quality, recognized by professionals in the field.
Prime Music, a Deezer or Spotify made by Amazon
Music lovers are not left behind. Amazon Prime also includes the music streaming service Prime Music, a direct competitor to other market platforms such as Deezer or Spotify.
Members of the Prime program can thus benefit from a catalog of no less than two million recent songs, as well as the possibility of listening to their favorite songs on all their devices. They can download music for offline listening, or ask the voice assistant Alexa for the music they want.
Prime Reading, always have a good book with you to read
Do you like to read? That turns out well ! Amazon Prime also includes a reading service, called Prime Reading. You therefore have exclusive access to a catalog of novels regularly enriched and updated. You can then easily find what you like. News books, thrillers or children’s books, there is something for all ages and for all tastes.
Prime Gaming, for video game fans
Prime gaming is like what Sony offers with its PlayStation Plus or Microsoft with its Xbox Game Pass. This service, included in your Prime membership, gives you instant access to a slew of exclusive content for your favorite games each month, a free PC game rotation and a free Twitch channel subscription. You also have a selection of games each month that you can download for free.
As we pointed out previously, Amazon Prime can be tried for free for a period of 30 days, without any commitment. A great way to test the premium service before signing up for the monthly subscription of € 5.99 or the year-round subscription at € 49.
If you want to make the most of it and get the most out of your free trial, we recommend that you activate it just before major shopping events such as Prime Day or Black Friday. At the end of the 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime, the subscription is automatically renewed to the monthly plan at € 5.99 per month. That said, nothing prevents you from giving up the latter, right after subscribing to the trial offer. You will continue to enjoy the premium service for 30 days, without worrying about it being renewed when it expires.
In the event that you wish to terminate your current subscription, the procedure to follow could not be simpler. Go to your Amazon Prime account settings for this and select the termination option. Finally, if you are a student and you are between 18 and 24 years old, the subscription to Amazon Prime is offered at a reduced price: 24 euros per year (6 months free). At this even more advantageous price, you quickly make the subscription profitable, especially if we take into account the delivery costs offered. For those used to frequently ordering online, this is without a doubt the best deal on the market.
