GU Comics: "20 bucks"
Posted: Friday March 14th, 2014 by

I've heard the rumors about Amazon increasing the cost of Prime for months. But the amount of the increase was always the variable. Some thought it might nearly double. Luckily when Amazon finally announced the increase it was a mere $20 extra increasing the price from $79.99 to $99.99. [more info] That, to me, isn't a deal breaker. My Prime subscription just renewed though. So I'm sure I'll wimper a bit this time next year. **grins**

If there's anything to complain about (and I honestly don't feel there is), it's the idea that the increase is meant to cover the cost of new content for their video library and to fund their new music service NOT the increased cost of shipping. And I'll admit, if given the choice, I'd like to see a Prime subscription tier that costs less and doesn't include the video stuff. I don't use it. Navigating the available options is a complete chore.

So yeah. Comic? Mock rage. Thoughts on the price increase?
