Attention all Amazon Prime users and addicts! It was just announced on Friday, January 19th that Amazon Prime memberships would be switching from $10.99 a month to $12.99 a month. Of course this isn't a huge deal, it'll end up costing you $24 more a year. Student Prime memberships also are getting a price bump, moving from $5.49 to $6.49 a month.

Luckily there is a way to get around this new price increase! If you pay for a full year up front it'll only cost you $99, which is about $8.25 a month. So if it is possible, paying it all at once will save you about $50 over the course of a year. The new pricing takes affect January 19th for new users and current customers will notice the price increase on membership renewal after February 18th.
