Amazon Offers Prime Shipping at $7.99 per Month

Amazon Prime SidebarYou’ve been trying to look the other way, but it’s undeniable. The holidays are headed straight for us. If you do much online shopping you might want to take note of a new pricing plan from Amazon. Their Amazon Prime program, which provides unlimited 2-day shipping, access to a library of streaming videos and the ability to “borrow” certain Kindle books for free is normally $79 per year. But now customers can opt for a $7.99 per month charge, if the lump sum is too big a hit on the monthly budget. Yes, it comes out to more in a year (almost $17 more), but on a monthly basis it might be more manageable. And what better time to have some budget-priced shipping than in the next couple of months?
